We booked this hotel online from Thailand as part of our 10-day Scotland trip and chose the hotel for just our arrival first night based on its convenient location which the map showing it as being about 400m. from the Central Station which, in turn, is an easy 30-minute direct ride from the airport. We were pleasantly greeted by smiling Emma who quickly signed us in. 76GBP was the room rate for a double bedroom including (pre-booked) buffet breakfast for two which was very reasonable. Free Wi-Fi was also something I looked for since I needed accesses for my notebook and smart phone.
The third floor room we had was compact but not small (beside the double bed there was also a 2-level bunk bed) looking out onto the rail station car park adjacent to the main tracks, so we were braced for a noisy night. However, we were pleasantly surprised to pass the night with just barely audible track noise. The only minus that we would score was that the shower was an open cubicle with no door and no sill, which meant that the whole floor becomes a wet area after a shower. The nice looking wall-hung toilet was also a trifle too high for the average person but we managed to get used to sitting on tiptoe after a couple of visits.
We went down for breakfast the next day at 0730 and found everything laid out nicely for an efficient full scale meal to start the day .. nothing lacking here. Then we checked out at 0930 and, as requested, the staff were happy to keep our luggage for us to retrieve at 1300 when we got on our way.
Overall it was a very pleasant stay at an efficiently run no-frills business hotel which would also be OK for a family short stay because the very convenient location.
