was visiting my father in Scotland and stayed at the tontine for one night. I have probably stayed there a dozen times with any issues. When I arrived this time I was pleasant surprised by a refurb that taken place. According to the waiter at a cost of £1m . Would not doubt that. They have added a cocktail bar...

The rooms have been upgraded since I last stayed there a few years ago. The bar is still a great place to get a pint. House cleaning staff very friendly and the shift manager went out of his way to help me out when I needed it.

We checked in as it was convenient to where our meeting was the following day. After check in where we were greeted by friendly staff we went to our rooms. They were spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The hotel has been refurbished to a good standard without it losing the period features.

Thankyou for your review. I was just wondering where the photo was taken, as it looks like the fire escape. If so it isn't a public area that is used at all therefore wouldn't get the same amount of attention. We also have never had any complaints regarding WIFI. Many Thanks
