My friend and I stayed at this hotel back in 2006. We found the hotel to be quite lovely with extremely accommodating staff, lovely furnishings, and the location could not be beat. You are in the heart of the city when you stay at this hotel and are within walking distance to everywhere you wish to be.
Since our room was a suite we were able to make our own meals which saved us a ton of money.
The only negative about this hotel was the bed. Perhaps it is how beds are in Scotland, but it felt like I was sleeping on a bed of barrels and springs, it was quite uncomfortable. I do imagine that that has since changed since I was a guest there.More
