As proud wingman to Glasgow’s Grand Central railway station, this hotel is a hub of lavish architecture and sparkling tipples, with Champagne Central scooping up the best hotel bar award. The team of dedicated staff welcome wearied travellers in to plush, cosy and contemporary rooms, with king-sized beds for romance-driven wanderers. Tempus Bar and Restaurant dishes out locally sourced and lavishly plated Scottish grub to pop a culinary cherry on top of modern and majestic hospitality.
Take to the streets of the city to marvel at a landscape of rich architectural and industrial history, be baffled at the Glasgow science centre, or indulge in some retail therapy. Although the hotel is in prime position for city wanderings, its connection to Grand Central Station also offers easy daytrips to Edinburgh or the engineering central of Falkirk. If you’ve got wheels at your disposal, take a quick vroom to Loch Lomond for a bit of hilly greenery, some fresh air, and a little taste of Scotland’s vast watery heritage.

The Grand Central Hotel was recommended by 92% of LateRooms.com reviewers, and was rated a dreamy 4/5 by TripAdvisors. While some felt the area was noisy at times, most visitors were eager to praise the staff and décor, though special mentions went to the hotel’s central location.
What a great hotel, lovely building very tastefully modernised but retaining a certain old charm and elegance. Nice rooms, comfortable bed and very clean and well presented as were all of the hotel public rooms, nice champagne bar overlooking the station plaza.

Beautifully decorated room with modern stylish bathroom. I could walk to many must see places in Glasgow city centre from the hotel and the bus stops to cathedral and airport were very close from the hotel.
