This hotel is unequipped to deal with the unexpectedly high temperatures in Scotland recently. The room cooling system is set at a minimum of 19' but is unable to achieve anywhere near this, so rooms are sitting in the mid to high 20's making a good night's sleep impossible.
Because of its proximity to the main Edinburgh - Glasgow train line, opening your window is not a viable solution.
There are a limited number of fans available and no additional effort to make your stay even remotely bearable, say by providing water jugs in the room. The staff are equipped only with a few stock lines to attempt to palm you off e.g. "the cooling system is very slow" "some people actually prefer the room warmer."
I question whether this hotel should even be allowed to open during these conditions, it would not in my opinion be tolerated in the workplace. We left an hour earlier than planned for the airport to try and get some rest before our flight. No one in the group had slept and all of us were left severely dehydrated.
