This is an ideal central hotel for business or pleasure. Very spacious & modern compared to other Thistle Hotels we have stayed in. Very reasonably priced for a weekend. Only problem is the parking, car park is far too small for the amount of residents.

I booked this for my neighbor who was locked out of her home with her 4 year old son on a Sunday evening, with no way to get back in until the next day. The receptionist was rude to us from the moment we arrived. I'd booked online but it hadn't come through their system yet so she asked me... More

From a warm welcome at reception to one of the best breakfasts I have had in a hotel (Good choice and HAGGIS :) ) this hotel is very comfortable, modern and clean. Great bed and stunning view out of the window (i think its a delux room, one up from the standard) Good wifi and free easy to find parking... More

The hotel is well located in the city center and a short walk from the rail station. The property is a typical business hotel with adequate rooms. The staff was very helpful and professional. If you need a location in the city center, this hotel will work just fine.

Booked a table in the cafe bar for Saturday lunch with friends. Had problems when booking as receptionist said they were very busy. As it turns out there were only 3 tables booked. And, if they know in advance they are busy, they can rota on extra staff. So, I really didn't understand the issue. Was pleasantly surprised to find... More

We booked this as somewhere reasonably priced and central to stay over when visiting relatives. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival, the accommodation was better than expected and the customer service was excellent. The rooms were a good size and very comfortable. We didn't eat there as we already had plans so cannot comment on the food. We will be... More
