We had high expectations having stayed in a hotel du vin before and we were not disappointed. Excellently located and with a 20 minute walk from the train station, it proved an ideal base to explore the wonderful city. We were able to leave our bags before and after check in. Not convenient if you arrive by car as it had no car park and parking elsewhere was very expenisve. You have to embrace the quirkyness of the hotel to enjoy what it has to offer. I loved its unusal history, it's a beautiful old building. Our superior double room was worth paying for the upgrade, however, the open plan design of the bedroom with freestanding bath and monsoon shower came as an eye opener! We soon got use to it and found it romantic and a novelty for the two nights we were there. Tastefully decorated, luxurious tartan fabrics and soft bedding- we had a great nights sleep, the room was lovely and warm. Having a drink in the cosy whiskey snug is a must for hotel guests. We had an evening meal in the bistro, which was excellent. The staff were attentive, the food and wine delicious. However, the price was expensive meaning it was a one off nice treat. We decided not have breakfast at £15 per head. It was very quiet when we went and did think the staff on reception could have been a bit better with check-in. I also said it was for a special occasion and were suppost to put a bottle of champagne in the room which never materialised which is why I rate it 4 rather than 5. On balance I would definatley recommend staying here, a great Scottish hotel steeped in charm.
