The Grand Central Hotel

Rated 8.6 in 7432 reviews. 230 rooms.

★★★★

Principal Hayley bought the Grand Central back in 2009 and spent over £20 million on completely refurbishing a wonderful historic building. The hotel opened originally in 1883 when it was the place to be. We have since once again made the Grand Central Glasgow's hotel by bringing the building back to its former glory.

Located at Glasgow Central Station, the award-winning Grand Central Hotel is an iconic hotel set within Glasgow’s shopping district. It boasts a fine restaurant, free WiFi and 21 meeting rooms for up to 500 guests. The historic building dates back to 1883. The hotel has original features including the grand staircase and the magnificent Champagne Central Bar with its domed ceiling and marble floor.

The stylish bedrooms all feature a flat-screen TV, a laptop safe and an iron. Guests can enjoy a discount on breakfast rates when selected at the time of booking.

The elegant Tempus Restaurant & Bar serves both traditional and local specialities, made from seasonal local produce as well as a varied cocktail menu. Deli Central offers fresh, light snacks in a relaxed environment.

This historic hotel has hosted stars including Frank Sinatra and Charlie Chaplin, and even features in the James Bond book, Licence Renewed. In 1927 John Logie Baird broadcast the first-ever long-distance TV pictures from a 4th-floor bedroom.

Princes Square, Argyll Arcade and St. Enoch Centre are all within a 5-minute walk. Glasgow International Airport is 7 miles away.
