Excellent city centre hotel. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Crystal decanters & mixers in the room are very welcome although you need to upgrade to a Executive room to receive these. Had a meal in the hotel restaurant on the first night which was excellent value for money. The food was lovely and was served piping hot which makes a...

The room was comfortable. The mini-bar was well stocked. The executive lounge was chaotic, so I didn't stop, walked in and left. The hotel could make a much better effort. The breakfast room/restaurant is bright and airy. The quality and presentation of the breakfast was very poor and not representative of the cost. I would advise not eating here as...

Dear rezekne. Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. I am sorry you felt let down by your experience and in particular breakfast. We do offer a promotional breakfast, which does have T&C's attached, for example needs to be pre paid, which is possibly where some confusion came about. Kind regards Monica

This is a small hotel which is in a great city centre location. The feel is a little corporate however, the rooms are large and very comfortable. The bathrooms are functional but could do with modernising. The team were friendly although seemed a little stretched during breakfast.

Fantastic location and good sized room. No view from the room but the rooftop restaurant had great views. Buffet breakfast not very fresh. However, you can order omelettes or scrambles eggs on order. Free mini bar was a nice touch (although mainly spirits). Hotel was clean and comfortable. Not a lot of character, but fine for a business stay. Right...

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
