Stayed here on a regular basis several years ago and decided to book a night whilst down to see Fleetwood Mac. As we travelled by train this was an excellent choice as it is basically next door to train station. We were able to leave our bags after check out have a look round shops and pick up on way...

We stayed for 2 nights in a Club Balcony room at the Carlton George. Everything was wonderful from the staff at the reception area to housekeeping. Clean, neat, very comfortable room with king size bed. Did not eat in the restaurant, but really enjoyed going to Waxy O'Conner's pub next door - a very unique experience. Really enjoyed our stay...

I stayed at the hotel for five nights. . Everything was fine, and I enjoyed the somewhat quirky atmosphere. Having a complimentary minibar with decanters of liquor, including a nice scotch of course, was a pleasant surprise. No surcharges or exorbitant fees for telephone use was another small but pleasant surprise. The location is great for for shopping and city...

The location of the hotel is great. I booked an executive room and it was spacious but rather dated and noticed some mould on the throw on the bed. The bed itself was a bit hard as were the pillows, which did lead to a restless night sleep for both, however the AC did work well as without it the...

The hotel is right in the city centre, close to the railway and bus stations. The famous "style mile" with all the exclusive shops is just round the corner. The rooms are comfortable and well kept. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The price is rather high, but together with the complimentary minibar it is acceptable. There is a...

Stayed for one night to attend a gig at the Hydro. I have stayed here before and have been very impressed. Reception staff were lovely and friendly.

The hotel has a central location and great ambiance. Rooms are well soundproofed and very quiet. Staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The breakfast was excellent. Perhaps a little expensive but this is offset by the free mini bar which has beer, wine and bottled water as well as mixers for the free partially filled decanters of whisky, gin and...

Not been here for a couple of years. The rooms look as if they have been improved in the meantime. Service, location and rooms excellent. Breakfast was good but not as good as I remember. Really quite average. Pity really. Still worth a visit.

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
