I decided to stay here, as it is in downtown Glasgow at George square, and is an older, more traditional hotel. The Carlton George is at or near all the major train, subway and bus hubs and 15-20 minutes from GLA. I booked a few months in advance and had to make a few changes prior to arriving and they...

My wife & I have stayed at the Carlton George several times now and have enjoyed their hospitality - nowhere else we've stayed has offered us complimentary mini-bar & spirits in our room. We booked an overnight stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our room was clean however the wash hand basin in the bathroom was not draining (at all)...

Stayed here about 18 months ago and had a truly lovely time. Great room, great service. This time, not so much. The rooms I have are fine, though the views leave much to be desired (across the alley to an office suite), the plumbing is erratic (hot, cool, really hot), and the service this time is disinterested at best. Wifi...

Dear hfulghum. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am sorry that you didn't have the same experience as you had previously. I imagine that you have booked a different to room to your previous visit, which would be why the view would be slightly different. I am sorry you had issues with plumbing....

The hotel is situated in the perfect place. Directly in the heart of the city for nightlife and your shopping on Buchanan Street. The ambience of the hotel is typically British, very cosy, small elevators and small hallways. The rooms are minuscule, but well decorated and that is where you see the British design comes to light at its best....

Breakfast is served in Windows in the morning, or can be delivered to your room. Guests can enjoy complimentary soft drinks, snacks and coffee throughout the day, and complimentary wine, beer and selected spirits each evening in the Executive Lounge located on the 7th floor. The lounge also features the Thomson Boardroom, ideal for meetings or private dining for up to 14 people.
