Great location, some noise

Good hotel, incredibly long corridors, breakfast ok, great location. Might go again if strapped for time. Good facilities in room. From station it can be a bit confusing to see reception especially over christmas as appears more like a boutique store. Breakfast could have had healthier objects and tastier cereal and better bread but this seems standard for (north) England. Bed was comfortable, and iron in the room worked well.

Great hotel that could not be faulted in any way

Pros: Everything, it was comfortable great facilities and position
Cons: Not much
Location: The position is central to the Glasgow CBD. It was easy to get transport and train
We stayed at the Grand for its position in the city and handiness to Central station. We were not disappointed. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. Breakfast was great and a good selection provided. We had traveled widely through Scotland and the Grand was one of the better stop overs. We can't speak highly enough about the Grand.Everything,

Great hotel in good location

Pros: Location, style and two extremely helpful women who helped us at the beginning and end of our stay.
Cons: Confirmation should give details for how to access hotel when driving, we rang the phone number given and were put on hold for ages while we were driv
Generally unbelievably charming helpful staff wth a couple of exceptions. Room very hot all day and night made it hard to sleep tho bed etc very comfortable.

I love this hotel.

The champagne bar is fabulous and I loved looking over grand central station. I do think some more modern cocktail drinks in the cocktail bar menu. I had an excellent stay here and think the room size is excellent. Beautiful bathroom..

Dissatisfied

Booked two rooms.One quite large and nice.The other one small.One window would not open and the other one only by two inches with the window frame half hanging off.The room was very warm and it did not help having the heating pipes running along the inside wall.
