Watch out for noise of air extractor from neighbouring restaurant if in superior room which faces inwards. Very disturbing. Otherwise well located hotel. Nice friendly service , Could not get afternoon tea delivered to room as advertised at front desk. Had to have that in restaurant!! Did not understand that. DC

We booked 2 nights at the Carlton for our first ever trip to Glasgow - and what a perfect choice! Only a few minutes walk from the main Glasgow Central train station (and even closer to the Queens) this lovely hotel is situated just off Buchanan Street, so couldn't be better located. Stepping through the main door, it was a... More

Stayed the Saturday before Betfred Cup Final, location just yards from George Sq is excellent, but nearest parking is a few blocks away, certainly not convenient, and I imagine older guests wouldnt be too impressed with the hike.

Described as a boutique hotel, we booked for a weekend at the Carlton. Upon arriving in Glasgow, we realized that we had chosen a place with a great location. However, we felt that this was the primary benefit of the hotel. While the rooms were clean and gave guests access to the mini-bar, the room size and amenities, food, and... More

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
