Compared to other much better hotels and B&Bs we stayed at in Glasgow and Bath, the price was excessive. Our hotel in Glasgow cost us L80 per night, vs L120 at the Edinburgh Townhouse. We think this probably reflects the market; Edinburgh being more expensive than those two cities. If we were to return to Edinburgh, we might sacrifice location for a better price.
The bathroom could have been more convenient - some horizontal shelf-space for toiletries would be great.
Also, this was the only hotel we visited in GB that did not provide decent reading light for reading in bed, the only place in the room where we could read.
Finally, while the interior of the hotel is clean, the stairway to get up there smelled a bit musty.
