This hotel is attached to the Central train station, literally the back door opens into the train station. There is a lovely bar on the second floor where you can watch all the hustle and bustle of the trains. But do not worry, the rooms are quiet. We were on the 3rd floor on the station side and we slept...

This was an excellant hotel. Very central for exploring Glasgow. Staff very professional and helpful. Food fantastic. This overnight stay was due to an offer from itison so excellant value for money. I would certainly buy one again and recommend to everyone.

+ Great location and my room on the 3rd. floor was fairly quiet.Rooms clean and well-furnished and decent size. Beautiful Victorian building. - 20 mins. in a a queue to check-in is not what you need after a long journey. Only 2 check-in desks in a large hotel? First impressions count. Check-in was friendly though. Only luke-warm water at 8pm...

The location seems to be ideal for a first time visitor to Glasgow. It is close to restaurants, bars, museums, and (obviously) the train station. The building may be old, but it appears more charming than dated, especially the way it is decorated in the common areas. By contrast, my (recently renovated) room was quite modern. As expected, it was...

We were only able to stay one night but it was an excellent location and close to the center of the city. Nicely renovated. Dining rooms are quite noisy, especially on a Saturday night. Staff was helpful.

Stayed at Grand Central for 2 nights. Room was very spacious, clean and tidy. Bed was exceptionally comfortable. We were overlooking the Central station, which comes with a lot of noise, from trains, people and announcements. We found it really difficult to sleep. The staff were very nice and helpful, without exception. Had a meal on the first night the...

Fascinating original railway hotel, which has been upgraded but still retains a lot of old features, as well as being as central as it's name states. This makes it rather quirky - don't get lost while trying to find the breakfast room! The Champagne bar is classic, and bar staff provide good cocktails. The room I had was perfect for...

Recently renovated beauty. Central location from where you can walk to Buchanan Street, Buchanan Galleries, George's Square. The staff are excellent and will go out of their way to accommodate you. Breakfast was great and the champagne bar takes you back to another era . You can't get closer to the station if travelling by train.Number 1 hotel in Glasgow.

Me and my partner attended the A&M ball in the Grand Central and decided we would stay over. Upon arrival staff were very friendly and chatting away to us asking the purpose of our stay they were also very helpful with explaining where to park and how to get back to hotel through station. Tip is park on 5th floor...
