3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had a really bad stay in the hotel. Slept horribly, woke up with head aches. I felt the rooms where too claustrophobic. plus the TV connection is horrible here so nothing to pass time. the Rooms have really small windows with no view of the outside world so you just feel trapped within the four walls. Though the staff... More

Arrived with my daughter for a short business trip, very impressed with the room, the cleanliness, the food, but the most impressive part was the staff, excellent service from start to finish. Helpful, polite and very accommodating.

I stayed here for 1 night for business, I ate in the restaurant in the evening and also had breakfast. The hotel was clean and so was my room. I didn't sleep particularly well as the room was pretty warm. I did turn the radiator off and open the window which helped. (I live in an old house which is... More

We arrived at the Thistle Hotel to find that all the tables were pre-booked and could not find anywhere to sit despite arriving early. We asked a member of staff to find us seating but he was totally flustered. We asked each table if they had spare seats and 35 minutes later we found some seats together at the back... More

A splendid evening at the Thistle hotel with a really lovely 5 course meal with white glove service. Although the staff said there was no dress code I was really glad I packed my dinner suit as the majority of guests wore black tie attire. Room was adequate for our needs, my only real criticism would be the Thistle bar... More
