Location- Central place to visit Scone Castel and St Andrews. Did not really visit the city itself. Asked for a quiet room with river view but did not get it. You can come in directly to the rooms on the elevator without going through the reception. You need a key to enter the hallway to your room, but anyone can come behind a guest. Rooms have no inside bolts.
Reception- Terribly rude, uninformed and unhelpful young lady on check in. Next day a young man and the lady were helpful.
Breakfast –Very good for a budget hotel. Sausages, eggs, beans, yogurt, bread, croissants, juice, etc. Floor was a bit sticky.
Room-Small European holiday Inn standard. Needs to be repainted and carpet was a bit tired.
Light for reading –Good
Bed –Comfortable, but with duvet instead of sheets and blanket, got a 2 twin bed room.
Wi-Fi-Terrible- front desk response is that everyone uses it! Da! If you don’t have power for every guest you don’t have internet!
TV- Good Size and a variety of channels.
Room for bags-Very tight
Tea Kettle or coffee maker- Yes
Bathroom-Small but efficient, some mold around the shower and floor a bit dirty or stained?
Safety bar in bathroom-Yes
Towels-Good size and clean
Amenities-None soap and shampoo from a bottle in the wall.
Hair dryer-Will fry your hair
Full length mirror-Yes
Makeup mirror- None
Laundry-No self serve
Iron and ironing board. None
Complimentary bottle water-No
Plugs-None by the bed
