“Comfortable & Nice place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2009

The rooms were a little small. Georgian is at a busy intersection. Not a lot of room for parking. We parked at the back of the hotel which worked out quite well. Close location to many restaurants and stores. Don't understand previous comments as our stay was very nice. Hosts were very helpful in advising where to eat and what stores were around hotel. Hotel close to the airport which makes it very convenient. We enjoyed our stay in this location very much.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2009

I really wish I had checked TripAdvisor before booking, but it looked lovely in the website. It isn't. It's pretty shoddy, and probably the worst hotel I've stayed in for the price.

1. Bring your own toiletries. We got nothing. As for years every hotel/guest house/B&B I've stayed in has had toiletries, I don't bring them. It was only by complete chance that I happened to have a bar of soap with me.

2. Continental breakfast. I can only presume the proprietors have never stayed in a hotel on the continent. Choice of yoghurt, cereal, cheese, ham and make your own toast from Asda sliced bread (still in the packet). We could only dream of a packet of Tesco croissants. And you make your own tea or coffee from boiling water in a kettle.

3. The room. Needed redecorated basically. Plaster repairs on walls, etc.

4. A minor point, but the TV has four analog channels and no teletext, which is kind of annoying.

5. You also have to pay on entry, which I was suprised at.

6. The free parking is street parking, so you may be lucky, and you may not be.

A strange experience. I had expected a fairly posh hotel with nice facilities, but it was more akin to staying in a student hall of residence with a bigger room. Maybe if the room was half the price I wouldn't have minded, but it was certainly not worth the money we paid.

Alex has been very friendly and helpful, and the room we stayed in was clean and cozy. We don't understand where all the negative comments are coming from, perhaps these people are more used to staying at the Hilton. This hotel gives a great Scottish experience.
