After being given an option upon check-in, I chose a first level room over a ground level room, but hadn't realised that there was actually no elevator and had to keep stomping up and down the stairs. Having said that, its probably better to get a first level room so you don't have people walking past the window. Just accept their offer of a porter for your luggage!
The staff are all wonderful, very reliable with taxis, information etc and the breakfast chef (although she couldn't have been much older than me) was so sweet and accommodating she made me feel like I was being cooked for by my Mum. If my Mum was sweet or accommodating. They also very considerately give you take-away cups for coffee which I thought was a nice touch. Note the circular dark things in the hot breakfast section that look like chocolate cookies, are not cookies! Its black pudding and haggis.
Chats the restaurant was also wonderful, the staff were lovely and let me try a few different deserts instead of just one. Both the apple crumble and the sticky toffee pudding were absolutely to die for. There were a few kids in the restaurant, maybe that's normal for Scotland but it made me feel self-conscious about getting drunk there.
The room is fine even though its a bit ole, they didn't have any conditioner but a very comfortable bed and it's quiet even on a Friday night.
The only other down-side to the stairs is the gym. Although its tiny, its sufficient if you're in there alone. But you won't be. The choice of machines or weight area (which only fits one person) is limited so its a first-come first-served system and you could be left with nothing but a lat machine. The significance of this problem was exacerbated by the aforementioned desert indulgence.
Overall I found it very good value, really enjoyed the service and would happily stay here again.
