The greatest thing about Fraser Suites is its location. It is situated a very short walk from Waverley Station, the Royal Mile and the heart of the town. First impressions were also very favouable. The reception area is modern and very stylishly decorated. Unfortunately it went downhill after that. The room was sold as a junior suite but it was small for a suite and had no separate living and sleeping accommodation. Most of the other problems I had were problems of poor housekeeping. Toiletries and loo paper were only replenished on request, the room had very dusty skirting boards, tops of pictures and windows. As for behind the bed, I am sorry I looked. The telephone didnt work at all during my stay and the TV stopped working two days into my four day stay. I thought the staff tried hard but were hampered by insufficient numbers to run the restaurant properly. Tables were left stacked with dirty dishes long after the diners had left and the breakfast was very limited in terms of choice. When I spoke to the manager she explained that the restaurant was in the process of changing hands. She apologised for the issues I raised but made no offer of even a slight reduction, which would have been appreciated. In summary, this could be a very nice hotel and it wouldnt take much to make it so. But at the moment it isnt good value for momey and I wouldn't recommend it. Which is a shame.
