Very easy to walk to from Glasgow Central and lots of good food and drink nearby. * loved that there was part of the mirror that didn't steam up during showers * very comfortable comforter The bad: * they hadn't cleaned the room well. We found several empty bottles of beer in various cabinets around...

The only good point is the location, very central. The room are ok but not exceptional at all and if you are lucky you can get a beautiful view of the machinerie, awesome... But the worst thing is the service, I was really chocked about the quality of service for a Carlton Hotel... Employees are not professional at all, no...

Located right in the city center, this lovely hotel provided a perfect base for us as we explored the wonderful city of Glasgow for 3 days. A stones throw from lots of attractions, friendly staff and a lovely room. Highly recommend!

We love this hotel. The location was perfect for us. We stayed a week and could find our way around without problems. The reception staff were helpful and polite. The food in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner was delicious. The mussels - yum.

We travelled to Glasgow, adult children included. We booked at the Carlton George. We broke our trip into two parts, so after a few days, we left Glasgow to venture for golf, Scotch, etc., and later returned to end our journey. Needless to say, both stays were absolutely perfect. Cannot, even with 4 adults, begin to find anything to complain...

When traveling from the US overseas, planning the trip can be greatly facilitated by contacting the hotel where you plan to stay. In many cases you'll likely feel as if you're simply a "guest statistic". But not here.

I stayed there for only one night, but was impressed given that it only cost £139 (breakfast was £10 extra). The room wasn't huge but was of modest and comfortable size. Mini bar was free - this included soft drinks, beer, whisky and gin. There was also a few snacks in the room that was complimentary. It is conveniently located...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Based right in the heart of Glasgow, adjacent to Queen Street Station and Buchanan Street and with the airport bus service stopping right at our door, we are the perfect city centre base. We are four star rated, and each of our 64 bedrooms feature a complimentary Minibar and decanted spirits, multi channel LCD TV with Sky Sports 1, 2 and 3, desk, and bathroom with bath and power shower to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing stay while you are with us. WiFi is free for the duration of your stay, and so are local phone calls. National calls are just 3p per minute. Located on the 7th floor of the hotel, Windows is Glasgow's only rooftop restaurant. Windows Restaurant serves delicious dishes created with local produce with menus changing to reflect what's in season. In fact, the food is only matched by the view over the rooftops of Glasgow! 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. At the Carlton George Hotel we've worked hard to create a comfortable and informal setting where you can make yourself at home and relax, but still experience fantastic service. ... more   less
