Had an overnight stay as attending a function and we were upgraded to superior rooms which were lovely and clean. No complaints at all. Lovely staff and breakfast was excellent.Would recommend. The rate we paid for 1 triple room and 1 single were excellent value.

Had a great over night stay upgraded bedroom was a bonus, friendly staff, very clean. Were there for a wedding reception it was also a great venue, very spacious, drinks a bit expensive but what venues aren't these days especially city hotels and especially wedding venues.

My wife and I chose to have our wedding at the Thistle Altens and we couldn't have been more happy with how it all went.
