Great service in this excellent hotel. I have stayed before and really enjoyed it. Wasn't in and Editors Suite this time - just in a Classic Room and I was only there for one night but still, it was full of character.
Great Fitness Centre too.
Hotel is close to town of course and offers a real Scottish experience.
I have to say though that my bed was awful. I stayed on the 8th floor and the bed had the imprint of other bodies in it. You found yourself moving into the old grooves as it was the only way to get comfortable. I had a terrible sleep. I mentioned it the manager the following morning at checkout when he asked me how my stay was. He said 'oh sorry' and that was all.
So avoid the 8th floor and the crusty old beds :-). Still a good place to stay but might try the Balmoral next.
