This place has been probably the best place I've stayed! Less than a minutes walk from the theatre/ shops / restaurants! Would highly recommend! It did state in the double room you get robes and slippers but there wasn't, but to be honest that's not something I look for in a room! Comfy bed, great night sleep! And excellent staff!

In walking distance to the attractions and heaps of shops and malls. Also not to far away from the beach. Lovely atmosphere and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful (90% of the time). Breakfast buffet was ok. The Haggis was really good. The only thing I was not impressed with at all was the complete ignorance and who...

I had a single room for a night prior to going offshore. It was beside a fire door and it seemed like it was constantly banging when closing. Made for an uncomfortable nights sleep. Other than that the room was basic but fine and was reflected in the price. Great central location and friendly efficient reception staff. Would stay again...

The staff are very welcoming and helpful, the hotel is warm and very clean with a nice feeling. The rooms themselves are perfect for a few Nights stay. Everything you need is here and the location is perfect from the train station and the city's Main Street. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Went for afternoon tea for birthday - The sandwiches and a good selection cakes were nice, however there was a damper for the visit which was the hum of a fridge in the bar which seemed really loud as there was no other noise in the hotel, a little quiet back ground music would have made the visit more enjoyable.

Not the first time I have been to this hotel, and will definitely be back. Rooms are spotless and comfortable. Staff are very courteous and helpful and the hotel is in a great location.

The Hotel was nice, but very dated when we get to the room. 2 single beds that were not very comfortable, and heating that was either on at full pelt, or nothing at all. It was boiling at 1 as it was at 5. Breakfast was good though.
