Went to see the "King and I" with my wife as part of my Xmas present to her on the Friday after New Year. Decided to stay at the Scotsman as an extra treat. People were very friendly and the room was great. However a couple of negatives. The food in the restraurant was pretty plain (perhaps because we were choosing from the "theatre menu") and the vegetarian option for my wife was "pretty tasteless", in her words. The night time sleep was pretty disrupted due to the sheets on the bed irritating the skin. Again perhaps too much starch as it felt like light sandpaper when you turned over. Still the rest of the hotel stay was excellent and the reception staff and porters were very efficient and made us feel very welcome.
