On a short break to the Edinburgh Tattoo, this is one of the worst hotels in which I have ever had the misfortune to stay. The coach company was excellent, but not this hotel. Our room was on the third floor and it was very dirty. The carpet and walls were heavily stained. The bathroom was desperately in need of... More

On a deal, I met a friend for afternoon tea and a catch-up. The service was slow, although we had booked. A good variety of reasonably good sandwiches and cakes were served, and we ate our fill and had refills of tea. We were not made to feel as though we should be in a hurry to leave, but were... More

Apologies that you found the service slow on your visit to the Hotel, as for parking the Hotel has its own underground car-park with adjacent parking to the rear and side of the Hotel. By way of compensation I would be happy to invite yourself and a friend back to the hotel at... More

I booked the Bruce Hotel against my better judgment after reading that it had been refurbished (in TripAdvisor). I’d decided around five years ago never to return after an extremely unpleasant stay in what purported to be a four star establishment. In truth, around half of the rooms and the public areas have been completed. There’s little or no sign... More

Dear Ece69 Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Hotel . I am sorry your stay within our 3* Hotel was not up to expectations. The hotel changed hands some 18 months ago and we have an on-going programme of refurbishments to the hotel. It has had some £500 thousand pounds spent on it front and... More

Booked a two night stay for me and my mum as a surprise for her 81st birthday. Wish I'd never bothered. The room needed renovation. The chairs were uncomfortable, the TV was located too high up the wall, quilt covers did not fit duvets ( mine was too big and mums was too small) and the beds were terrible, so... More

The room was In a terrible state, and smelt odd the desk was sticky to the touch, when checking in I was handed the key fob which was falling apart and I asked if this reflected the state of the room, the receptionist went evasive to say the least. Once I was in the toilet/room I asked about an upgrade... More
