Previously we have stayed at the Glasshouse Hotel and loved it, they were full this weekend so we took the opportunity to try this new addition to Edinburgh's hotels, and were very impressed with the location, friendly and helpful staff, and dazzling style of the place. I was impressed when we were rung the week before our stay to ask if we had any requirements. I said that we would prefer both rooms to be close by, and was told they would both be on the 4th floor, and ready for an early arrival on the noon train.
I was only slightly disappointed on arrival to find that our rooms were on the 1st and 5th floors, and that only one was ready. The 5th floor was an upgrade to a junior suite so any disappointment was softened.
The room had aspectacular view and was well decorated, but there were niggles. There was nowhere to leave your coats near the door, the TV did not work without 2 phonecalls to reception and an eventual visit from the engineer, and even then the remotes interfered with each other. The lighting only worked with a room key, and was either on or off. Lying on the fashionable couch under the fashionable light was a bit like lying on the operating table. Nowhere to plug a hairdryer near a mirror was another niggle.
The cocktail bar was excellent and the staff corteous and efficient. Breakfast was delicious and well served. Staff throughout were engaged, interested and well trained.
Overall a very nice hotel, well located and I would certainly stay again. With a little more priority to details it could be a great hotel.
