We booked 2 rooms at the Scotsman months ago but we were informed a week before arrival that they could no longer accommodate us. Don't risk reserving this hotel as you may either have your booking cancelled, or be shifted to a hotel you never booked.
No real explanation was given, and they offered us another hotel which was a completely different style, and not that close by. They'd had our money for months and cancelled us a week out. I'd also re-confirmed the room manually a week or two before, so they had had at least 2 other opportunities to tell us but they left it until 1 week before when many other hotels were sold out, or prices had increased.
Don't risk a booking here - as even if this isn't a regular issue, why would anyone take the risk?
