I booked this hotel through orbitz for a night. It listed a downtown location and breakfast for a reasonable price compared to others in town. When I arrived we realized it was a good 20 minute walk from a purely residential area to any resemblance of a downtown street. The room we were given was on the third floor facing... More

Dear Muppetx Thank you for your comments and my apologies that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. As we are in a hillside location in a temperate climate we have found that it is uncommon for air conditioning to be required, and being away from the main road we don't tend to get much traffic go past...

My girlfriend and I stayed here as part of a larger group for 2 nights to attend a wedding nearby. The location is a little remote, £12 in a taxi from City Centre or 30mins on the #1 bus which picks up close by. Check-in was a bit difficult with the front of house staff nearly charging my room to... More

Good Quality Hotel, booked for 2 nights, room was excellent, very clean and a wonderfull huge comfy bed, breakfast was good, plenty options and if you were patient buffet was stocked consistently with freshly cooked food.

We booked this hotel on our recent trip to Scotland. The hotel has very good rooms and excellent staff. The food here is also reasonably priced and very good. Walking distance (2 min) to the bus stand from where you can reach downtown/railway station in around 25 min. This hotel is nicely tucked away from the busy downtown area. The... More

Grossly overpriced for what it was. A quiet room had been requested and there was not only road noise but loud party music. When I complained I was told it would end at 12 but it went on till 1am. The food was poor, some of it inedible, but nobody asked why it was left. I had to ask twice... More

Very good quality hotel for such a price! The only problem we have experienced is the lack of fresh vegetables on breakfast, but the quality of food was excellent, rooms are clean and tidy, very worm welcoming (especially if you buy this package for £20). Close to zoo, but a bit far from centre. However, its not a problem to... More
