We stayed in a Clan Room 226 and Signature room 203 as our daughter and grandchildren also stayed with us. The rooms were spacious and well presented. Great location so near to the motorway and, best of all free parking and free wifi. We were all well looked after and the staff were most attentive. Great choice at breakfast.

This is an established hotel, a pleasant place, and from our room in that turrett at the top an amazing view out over the city skyline. Staff welcoming and helpful, room cool at first but able to warm up when adjusted radiators

The Hotel is in a great location just 5 minutes off the motorway and its very easy to get to from the airport. Located in Morningside means that the city centre isnt more than ten minutes drive in a taxi. The Hotel restaurant serves really good food and the breakfast is first class. A good bar, a varied selection of... More

The room was very clean, but a bit dated. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. On saying that, we were in the bar area and on 2 different occasions and by 2 different staff, they were talking about guests leaving tips to one of their regular customers, not really appropriate when guests were sitting within earshot. We were also overcharged... More

Although this hotel has had a great deal of upgrading outside, and also in the bar/ restaurant, the bedroom I found to be sad and tired...old furnishings, threadbare carpets, peeling and faded wallpaper. Bed was comfy and clean, though. Breakfast uninteresting, no freshly cooked hot items, only stuff keeping warm, and not enough fresh fruit. No lift is a decided... More

Stayed here for a business trip on half board and have to say I really enjoyed it. Room was comfortable, it hadn't got all the usual mod cons, but still was exactly what I needed. Breakfast was very tasy and service welcoming and evening dinner was an absolute delight...gourmet. On the edge of a steep hill you can walk around... More

Stayed for two nights at the beginning of May. Great reception area but very small bedroom. Granted we asked to be moved from a twin to a double and this was no problem. Was reluctant to ask to be moved a second time. Very old decor, I reckon about 1980s. Very clean!! Bathroom very small and a large person probably... More

Thank you for your review. We’re happy that you felt welcomed by our staff and that you found the hotel clean and comfortable, however we’re somewhat surprised to hear that you found the décor dated. The restaurants and bars and all the public areas have undergone a complete renovation and we are currently well underway in refurbishing all the rooms.... More

Location is a bit out of town, if I was staying again I'd go for something closer, but nonetheless a fantastic hotel. Staff very welcoming and friendly, allowed an early check in, rooms comfy, everything that you need for a short break. Great accomodation, and a wonderful stay!!
