Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow
The 4-star Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow is situated in the heart of Glasgow, adjacent to Glasgow Central Station. Housed in a beautiful Victorian building, it has long been an icon of the city's skyline, and is historically significant as the site of the world's first long-distance television transmission in 1927 by John Logie Baird. The hotel has recently undergone an impressive and extensive £20 million refurbishment, and boasts a selection of bars and eateries. The beautifully-appointed rooms feature all of the facilities you would expect in a hotel of this standard, including a safe and a plasma television.
In 2012 the Grand Central Hotel received a Bronze Award for customer service from Great Rail Journeys.
