About the Corus, I join the chorus
I moved from the Glasgow Hilton to the Corus on the basis of room rates for a 5-night stay. Frankly, despite the rate difference, the Hilton is a far better value if one can afford it. Corus has an advantage in its location close to Glasgow's Central Station, but it is otherwise uninspiring. No facilities in my room for clothes storage. The Olio Restaurant seemed unhappy to serve me one evening because they had a "group of tourists" to serve. I advised them that I, too, was a tourist so they finally found a corner for me. Ongoing construction and dirty, noisy streets between Corus and the Station. OK - but no more!
Clean & comfortable, near train station
We stayed at this hotel for one night in July, 2004. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Central train station and a 5 minute walk to a bus stop for the airport bus. The block the hotel is located on is a bit run down with a few empty storefronts. This was a bit uncomfortable when we arrived in the evening however the following morning the street was busy with people heading to and from work so was less of an issue.
Our room was cozy but comfortable and pleasantly decorated. Room was very quiet throughout the night. Items like hairdryer and coffee/tea service were provided. Bathroom was modern and clean. One slight exception was some mildew in corners on ceiling due to no ventilation fan in bathroom.
I had requested a wake up call but never did receive it (make sure you use your own back up alarm).
Loved the room,and check in Staff
Very friendly and helpful staff..Young lady who was more than willing to visit and make us feel at home.. Room was clean and lacking nothing that we needed. One warning, do not open the windows at night if you are facing the Street as it is a noisy street!!
Breakfast did not meet the standards that we had grown to expect for the cost, however, as the room, staff and the location, so near to the Central Train Station, made up for the breakfast selections. We would not hesitate to come back.
Nice hotel, Good location, unfriendly and unhelpful staff.
We stayed at the Corus Hotel overnight after arriving in Glasgow. The staff behind the desk were not nice or helpful. It was surprising since everywhere we went in Scotland the people could not be nicer. However the room was fine and the location was central so we could walk everywhere.
Very pleasant hotel
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel whilst attending dalai Lama talks at SECC and were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and comfort. Although situated in a less than salubrious area it's well located for Glasgow Central Station, a short walk - and it's just a short stroll from the river. A pleasant 20min riverside amble brings you to the SECC. We dined twice in the hotel restaurant and found the food excellent and not overpriced. Breakfast was good too. We requested a quiet room, having read your previous reviews. A grotty view but a tranquil night's sleep. All the staff, without exception, were friendly and obliging.
Great place good hotel
Arrived in Glasgow 6th May for three nights stayingat the Corus Hotel . We were able to book in early and reception staff very helpful and friendly, as wasall the staff and locals except for one taxi-driver who took exception to my wifes English accent. The hotel was clean and tidy but rooms compact and no proper storage area for clothing. Weather was variable but friendliness of the locals made up for that. Would definitely recommend hotel and Glasgow, which was clean and still maintained the facade of an old and prospereous city.
My best friend and I stayed at this hotel April 20th-26th,2004. We were absolutly delighted with this hotel. The Staff was wonderful and polite as well as helpful. The rooms were a bit small, but comfortable and clean. (but bring your own washcloth) You don't have to worry about hiring a taxi for there is always a trail of them across the street handy and ready. The rail station,shops restaurants,pubs are all in walking distance. And if you don't feel like walking to have a *drink* the hotel bar on the 1st floor is the place to be. The bartenders were delightful,fun and very friendly. We had a wonderful weeks stay in glasgow and definitely will return and stay at the corus hotel. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and anyone reading these reviews.
Myself and 3 friends stayed in this hotel for one night, 6th March, 2004. I booked the hotel on Lastminute.com and got a rate of stg50 per room. The normal rate is stg90. We were delighted with the hotel. It was a five min walk from the rail station (Central Station) and about 10 mins from the main shopping areas. There is a taxi rank directly in front of the hotel. The hotel itself was very nice, not very pretty from the outside, but don't be put off by this. Inside it was lovely.
The rooms were bright, ok size, very clean and were well equipped - Iron/Iron board, trouser press, mini shampoo, hairdryer, tea/coffee/hot chocolate & biscuits! We asked for more towels and had them within 5 mins. The heat was a little too much, but I'd rather be warm than cold!
There is a nice bar on the first floor and a nice dinning room/breakfast room. Breakfast was lovely. Overall, we were very happy with the hotel, the staff were polite and helpful. I will defo recommend this hotel to friends going to Glasgow.
Loved the Carrick now called the Corus
I was a bit unsure about this hotel as had previously stayed when it was called the Carrick but it has gone a total revamp new look and new name it is now called the Corus Hotel Glasgow. I was up on a business trip the staff on check in very freindly and knowlegable of the City. I was also most impressed with the trendy look of the restuarant/bar and found the rooms to be bright and comfortable. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone from the business to the weekend traveller. I have since been back for a weekend break with my wife to explore the city.
Carrick Hotel Glasgow
I have stayed there many times , the staff are friendly and the rooms are basic but being improved throughout 2001 and 2002 so are probably up to 3 star quality. Breakfasts are mediocre though evening meals whilst not huge portions are usually goog. Tip , insist on a room overlooking James Watt Street as some rooms overlook Argyll Street - noisy - and other rooms back on to the lift shaft , also noisy.Handy for the centre by foot but parking difficult , 5 min walk to parking off street. Bar lacks atmosphere totally.

Afterwards we walked the town, stopping in shops, buying an ice cream cone, and stopping at a local church which had a rummage sale going on. We went in to look at the books, didn't find anything we needed. We then walked back to a tea room for lunch. I had a coronation chicken sandwich and a Fanta. Jean ...
