Stayed one night. Got a great feel when we arrived (apart from many cigarette ends around the entrance), nice red carpet on steps leading to entrance. Nice and bright on entering the hotel. Check in staff were very nice and welcoming. The room itself was very large with two big beds. and plenty room. Bathroom was good size also but as stated before a bit dated. When having a shower it wasnt very big, I am not small but I am not huge and felt quite crammed, height of shower head quite low. I you were a 6 feet tall you would have to bend down. Being picky, the wooden panels of the bathroom could do with a decent clean in the corners, residue of talc etc in the corners of the panels. The hotel is well situated for Union Street but again as stated earlier, the street lighting at night is not great and would not walk there on my own late at night. Did notice MANY cigarette ends around the entrance which did not look very good or welcoming. Yes, smokers will go outside but unfortunately there is not a bin or anything for smokers to put their cigarette ends into, hence the mess around the entrance which is a shame. On our return from an evening out we asked for a sandwich which I must say was very very nice and very well presented but it did come with a price - £14 for both of us - bit pricey to be honest. Bed was comfy but was wakened with guests from above us who obviously had kids and could hear them shouting and running about. But, must of us have had kids and know what they can be like so it wasnt a big deal. When we did this booking we thought it was for bed and breakfast which would have been a great deal, however we had not read it properly. Cost of the breakfast was £13.95 each which again was pricey, yes it was okay but dont expect big portions, 1 sausage, 1 rasher of bacon, 1 egg, half tomato, mushrooms and beans on a plate not much bigger than a side plate, certainly not the size of a normal dinner plate. If you wished more toast or tea that was not a problem.
Must say a mention to the guy on the desk, he was great, lovely to have a cheery person on the desk - not sure of his name, he a ginger coloured hair.
All in all, the stay was fine for what we were there for but pricey for breakfast and sandwich. The sandwich was classed as room service as it was after midnight but we did not have it delivered to the room.
