Scotland Road Trip
The 2 young ladies are the front desk need to put a smile on, helpful but I feel a smile now and then would be most welcoming. The Young man was helpful and pleasant. I arrived a few hours early (keep in mind this is a large hotel with many MANY rooms) and they made me wait around for 3 hours to check-in. Parking was good next door and out front. Pay machine in lobby of hotel. Good price and nice location to city center via taxi. A taxi will cost you between 9.50 - and - 15.00 pounds. Very nice size room. Clean room. Nothing really around the hotel, about a 12 minute walk to restaurants. Easy drive to EDI airport. Nice location, but not a welcoming property. Dan -USA

Won’t be back
Check in was awful, had to wait in a queue for over an hour. Surely they knew how many guests had to check in that day and should have been better prepared with more staff. Rooms were very grotty and well worn but you get what you pay for I suppose. Bed was awful and didn’t get much sleep.

2/10 Poor

Biq queues, so took over an hour to check in. When I got to my room, it was grubby. The whole place is tired and looks as if absolutely no investment is being made here. Shame, because the location is ok.

Overpriced for what it is
Stayed one night for a concert…room really overpriced…TV had one channel and could t get anymore, neither did the remote work …bathroom and room tired and in need of repair… especially the black mouldy grouting in the shower … beds uncomfortable…highly inflated price probably because it was bank holiday weekend and Harry Styles concert …not happy about having to pay extra for breakfast so didn’t and glad I didn’t t as what I saw looked terrible for the price…staff were lovely and helpful but beyond that …would not use again

There are better places to stay!
Not the cleanest of hotels. The carpets had not been vacuumed in the corridors, stains on bedroom carpet and walls.
