Great Hotel

Booked this hotel for my girlfriend's birthday weekend as we had stayed there previously.. Originally booked a superior room but on the eve of arrival asked to upgrade to Executive Club for the second night as I didn't think we would be in it much on the first. Was offered upgrade on both nights at a reduced rate. This service,coupled with the room itself and the facilities offered (Executive Lounge and the mini-bar and decanters in the room made it a brilliant weekend. We go to Glasgow regularly but normally stay in cheaper hotels but for a chance to treat yourself or for a special occasion this hotel is hard to beat. Great central location and pleasant, helpful staff make it one of the best.

Great couple of days

Location great, not even 5 minutes from the train station so no need to carry cases about for ages. Right on Buchanan street so don't need to walk far to shop. Complimentary mini bar was drunk, value for money. Only downside was the bed was a bit too soft.

Great Sunday night bargain!

My husband and I booked into the Carlton George for a night away from home, since we both work in Glasgow. This was our 2nd stay at the Carlton George & I've already booked another. For our first stay, we stayed in a standard room. This time we upgraded to the executive level. The extra cost of the executive room is well worth it, since it gives access to the executive lounge, with complimentary tea/coffee, spirits, and fizzy drinks, etc. Ideal location. The Carlton George is steps away from shopping, train stations, and tourist attractions. Friendly, helpful staff. The best hotel staff that I've ever experienced. Clean, modern rooms. With inclusive mini-bar. B&B. if you book breakfast, there's no extra charge to order it via room service.

My sister and I stayed in this

My sister and I stayed in this Hotel and we were really satisfied with our room.I would point out that we were on floor 4 and were told that rooms on floor 2 had not yet been refurbished so am not sure how nice they would be. Having said that we were delighted with our room ( and the complimentary mini bar was an added treat! ). I was surprised at how quiet the room was despite the central location! Would definitely return to this hotel.

What a fantastic hotel! from reception

What a fantastic hotel! from reception staff, house keeping, waiters, chefs and everyone else who provide an excellent service to all customers. Upon arrival we were upgraded to the executive lounge to celebrate my partners 40th birthday, what a great start to the day. The room we were given was luxurious comfort with everything we needed and more. The beautiful windows restaurant was a dining experience that will be visited once more (top marks to the chefs and waiters). I would certainly recommend this hotel to all I know and I'm sure that I will be returning again.
