Flower of Scotland

"Art is the flower. Life is the green leaf. Let every artist strive to make his flower a beautiful living thing, something that will convince the world that there may be, there are, things more precious more beautiful - more lasting than life itself" - Charles Rennie Mackintosh

The importance of art to society cannot be overstated. Art is literally the colour that brightens up what would otherwise be a blank and sad canvas. If I had to pick a theme for my last day in Glasgow it ...

"Here is the bird that never flew, here is the tree that never grew, here is the bell that never rang, here is the fish that never swam" - the four miracles of St. Mungo Hello my dear readers, and greetings from rainy old Scotland! After over a week exploring the wonders of the Emerald Aisles I'm back on the mainland, this time in the bustling metropolis of Glasgow. But before I talk about that, I should probably get you caught up! Friday was a day of farewells, as I bid aurevoir to ...

The rest of the wee Scottish adventure

... of good here is incredible. I had some mean mexican (chilli chorizo burrito....I almost exploded with deliciousness!!), great Persian, amaaaaaaazing Indian, out of this world burgers, and more. The only cuisine that's missing here, not surprisingly, is sushi. But we are in the UK after all!! We did spend a great deal in various pubs around the West End and City Centre. Local gems, neighborhood pubs, and even the big-n-nasty chains (Walkbout. Ugh)...but it was necessary!! ...

Exhibition Installation - Glasgow Science Centre

... firm suspension so you feel every bump, and as the wheelbase is very short, the car rocks back and forth a bit, but otherwise quite comfortable. However you wouldn’t want to do a long commute in it. Claire told me that it doesn’t come with a spare, nor does it have run-flat tyres, so you are expected to call the service centre if you get a flat.

We drove to Glasgow on the back roads in Dav’s CitroŽn. Most of the trip was either shrouded in mist or through ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Carlton George Hotel Glasgow

    Location good but not much else

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Warm and friendlly

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

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

    Definitely would stay here again!

    from

    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

    from

    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.
