Clean and tidy room - just wish hotels would provide two easy chairs rather than one ( a personal gripe). Bed was king size and extremely comfortable. First thoughts were that it would be too soft but that because there was a mattress topper - between that and the extra fluffy duvet it was like you'd imagine sleeping on clouds would be (if that was possible).
Food service however was a slight letdown. We had a snack of nachos before going out - it took over 35 minutes for them to arrive (nachos!). Next morning the buffet hot meals were lukewarm (scrambled eggs were actually cold) and we sent the food back; the next day was only marginally warmer. On our final day we opted for room service breakfasts so that we could pack - half of husband's breakfast was delivered and half of mine. Each time, the problem was rectified quickly and with a smile - but they shouldn't have happened in the first place.
There is a bus stop just outside the hotel which takes you into town, stopping at the Haymarket terminus right in the city centre. Buses are frequent and run into evening and on Sundays too.
Staff were lovely, very helpful and always greeted you in the corridors.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
