Multi-million pound expansion for Glasgow's Grand Central

PH Hotels' Grand Central hotel in Glasgow has undergone a £4.6m makeover, opening up a previously unused fifth floor.

The expansion at the station hotel has increased its capacity by 46 bedrooms to 230 and created a new entrance and ground floor reception. It has also generated 25 new full- and part-time jobs.

International interior design team Goddard Littlefair was appointed to create a sumptuous home-from-home at the four-star property. The new double rooms and junior suites offer Italian marble bathrooms with rainfall showers and ceramic roll-top baths.

As well as including subtle nods to historic Glasgow, the redesign showcases the latest in modern technology. This includes full-length wall mirrors that can be transformed into large-screen LED TVs at the touch of a button.

The recent multi-million pound upgrade follows a £20m investment in the award-winning hotel's conference and events rooms in 2010. There are 21 event rooms, two dedicated floors of flexible conference space as well as the Tempus Restaurant and Champagne Central Bar.

General manager Laurie Nicol said: "Glasgow is already a must-visit destination this year and with our stylish new bedrooms and public areas we are perfectly placed to welcome guests from home and abroad."

Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow was named Scottish Hotel of the Year in the Scottish Hotel Awards 2013.
