The staff, namely Cara and Nicole (and the other guy, but I forgot his name) were very friendly and helpful. We hadn't planned well for our visit to Scotland and they gave us all these options and selections, making our stay so much more enjoyable and fun.
Their rooms were fair in size and though the place was at the top of the building (77 steps to debauchery, yes indeed) the staff made up for the walk up. Just beware if you have gigantic luggage, walking up and down will be a chore. Oh, and because they had quite a few rooms up there it was sort of a maze, but you could find your rooms pretty easily.
The bathrooms were pretty good in size and there was always toilet paper. (Whew.) And hot water thank God! They also had several tv rooms and dining areas/fridges. You could also buy some drinks and food at the front desk so you wouldn't have to walk all the way down for a meal.
Overall it was a fun experience. Just cross your fingers that you won't get roommates who are really noisy/smelly/rude. :)
