          Historical Traveler Reviews Carlton George Hotel Glasgow

          Location good but not much else


          The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location right in the heart of Glasgow. It started badly when the optional breakfasts (an additional 25%) had been added to the room rate but never mentioned during the reservation. I was made to feel as if I was being awkward by asking them to quote the correct rate . The rooms are clean but the inside of the minbar was a disgrace and the cheap plastic feel to the bathroom hardly matched the hotel's claimed 4 star status. The complimentary minibar consisted of a single can of orange juice and 3 decanters of whisky, sherry and gin, perfect for a stag night but of little use to a family. Heating in the bathroom was unavailable which for Scotland in December is an unpleasant way to start the day. The checkout was nice but I won't be back.

          Just wonderful!


          Stayed here for two nights in October 2004, the night before my wedding and our first night. This hotel is just fantastic! The staff are absolutely brilliant: friendly, funny, helpful and completely professional. They give the impression that they care about their work and are proud of this lovely hotel. The restaurant is excellent for both dinner and breakfast, with wonderful views, and the executive lounge is a fantastic idea. Our room was huge, and extremely comfortable. The pricing is impressive, in fact everything about this hotel is really impressive.

          We're already looking forward to going back for our first wedding anniversary - can't wait! Utterly wonderful.

          Truly the best hotel I have ever stayed in


          Don't know how anyone could write a review giving this hotel a 1 rating. There isn't an ounce of dust or dirt in the place. Don't let that review put you off because it simply isn't true!

          We have done numerous city breaks in the UK and Europe over the last few years and usually always stay in 4/5 star hotels. I have to say that this is in a class of it's own. It is far better than any hotel we've ever stayed in and for a fraction of the cost we normally pay. Who can complain at 99 including breakfast for a room a night!! The breakfast by the way was fab. There was a huge choice of hot food and you could even have scrambled egg and smoked salmon freshly prepared if the hot buffet failed to inspire.

          The room was spotless, an adequate size and decorated using traditional tartan patterns. The bed was huge and the most comfortable I have ever come across in a hotel with a big thick mattress. The free mini bar and decanters of spirits in the room were what you would expect with a top 5 star hotel.

          The executive lounge was great for a chill out reading the paper drinking free tea/coffee or for pre-drinks again free before your night out.

          The staff were friendly and helpful. All in all as you can probably tell I can't think of anything bad to write about this hotel at all!

          Warm and friendlly


          I always read the reviews on tripadvisor before booking a hotel but have never written one after staying at many of the places that I read about. After my stay at the Carlton George I decided to write a review. We thought this hotel was just lovely. The rooms were extremely clean. Service was outstanding. We travel very often and have never experienced a staff as warm, and friendly as this staff. They could not do enough for us. The location was right in the heart of the city so you could walk everywhere. The complimently mini bar and decanters of spirits in our room was an added touch as well as the executive lounge that provided coffee, tea and drinks at no charge. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Glasgow.

          Good central Glasgow option


          This was a good, reliable hotel in a really central location in Glasgow. Our room was rather dark but other aspects of the hotel made up for it: free mini-bar and decanters of spirits, lovely service and a large, comfortable bed. Worth checking to see if breakfast is included in your price: it seems quite unlikely that it will be.

          Carlton George won our hearts


          Because of a shift in trip plans, we made a last-minute reservation at the Carlton George on West George Street. We were after a good location, and it indeed was perfect--just steps from Queen Rail Station. What we did not expect was the value we got for our money. Perfect bedding, wonderful bathroom, excellent lounge, great food. The staff is superior. We were travelling with two 13 year olds, and we sent them off to research restaurants. Two members of the staff took their concerns seriously, and soon the two girls had a book of menus and a list of the staff favorites.

          This place exudes an air of "we know how to keep our clientele." We shall return!

          Wonderful weekend


          Stayed at the Carlton George Glasgow for a weekend 23-25 Jan. If i ever open a hotel i would go to Carlton George and recruit the intier staff.

          The location is perfect, the rooms are very nice and the lounge and free mini bar a bonus.



          We have stayed at the Carlton George on a few occassions,and loved it.We have celebrated birthdays and Anniversaries there.he staff are very friendly and helpfull,its like visiting an old friend.Hotel is in an ideal location for the shops and sights of Glasgow, we have reccomended this hotel to all our friends,ITS THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN.

          the freemini- bar and complementary drinks in the lounge is an added bonus.1st Class.

          Definitely would stay here again!


          I was here for a week and the stay was wonderful. Carlton George is in a very convenient location and in the busiest area of Glasgow, but didn't hear any street noise at night. The service here was great. Free mini-bar and internet access was a definite bonus! The room size is relatively smaller to hotels in the US, but definitely not cramped or anything. If I were to go to Glasgow again, I'd definitely stay here again!

          Wonderful Weekend in the


          Myself and three female friends spent a weekend at the Carlton George in Glasgow. We found the hotel very comfortable and staff friendly. The rooms were spacious and beautifully furnished. The complimentary bar was a pleasant bonus. All of us being over 50 we found the hotel a pleasant calm atmosphere. The lounge for residents included complimentary coffe and drinks and peace to chat or read. The restaurant overlooks the rooftops of Glasgow and the food was excellent. We so much enjoyed our visit we are going again in October to sample the delights.

She went back to the terminal where she arrived from Dublin assuming it was international arrivals so we were waiting for each other in 2 different areas of the airport.

          Later we went to dinner at a pub called the "ubiquitous chip" which had a couple of different eating areas which were packed but we managed to get a table in the swishy part (so the cost tells me).......... Anyway, drum roll we order venison haggis to share for entree and it was very tasty. We both enjoyed it and would happily eat it again, phew - tick it off the must do list lol
