My husband and I decided to take a short break in Edinburgh and thought we'd try the Scotsman Hotel on North Bridge as previously we had stayed at the Sheraton Grand and wanted to sample something different.
It was absolutely wonderful in every way. the stafff were all friendly and chatty without being intrusive. The room overlooked North Bridge down towards Princes Street and was beautiful in detail and decor and very spacious.
There was a Scotsman newspaper delivered to the room every morning (hung on the outside door handle in a blue velvet bag!) and the array of teas, coffees. hot chocolate were probably the best we've seen in a hotel. We've been to quite a few 5 star establishments but this was definately the best and so deserving of its rating.
For once, the wi-fi was actually free which is very unusual and my husband had a lovely time at the swimming pool and sauna.
The breakfast was amazing with the best continental choice we've seen and hot breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious.
This year alone, we've stayed at Cameron House Loch Lomond and Marr Hall Renfrewshire and neither of these 5 star hotels were a patch on the Scotsman.
We can't wait to return, it was a fabulous experience.
