We checked in on Saturday 30th March for a one night stay. We travelled by car which on hindside we should have taken the train as the station isnt far from the hotel and cuts out having to find a parking space. We parked a street away.
On arrival reception was busy as there was a wedding taking place which was lovely as the hotel had a lovely buzz about it. Check in staff were friendly, efficient and very professional and we were checked in in no time at all.
The room which was a standard room was very modern and spotless and although the bathroom was small and only had a shower this was perfect for us as we only ever have showers at home.
After dropping off teh bags we headed to the Tempus bar for a couple of cocktails which eas busy and lively but a niec place to while the time away.
We did not eat in the restaurant as had Dinner reservations at the Living Room which was lovely with great service and after a pub crawl of George Street headed back to the hotel.
We opted for breakfast in the room in the morning after hanging the request on the door on our return from the pubs. This is at a cost of £10 for tray delivery but in our eyes well worth it to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in peace. It arrived on time and was piping hot and delicious.
After arriving home I discovered I had left my electric toothbrush in the bathroom and after a call to the hotel to confirm it was there they arranged for this to be sent on to me. I received this in a matter of days.
I would not hesitate in staying here again as overall all of the staff were professional and friendly especially as the hotel itself had been full the evening we stayed nothing was too much trouble.
