Very disappointed with my recent stay at The Scotsman Hotel. Paid 5 star prices for an average experience. Started with a terrible, strong smell in the lift that reminded me of rotten eggs. My 6th floor room was lovely but the smell was also in the room. Started getting a headache from the smell and asked for another room. Was moved to a room that I can only describe as an attic. The carpet was threadbare and the walls dirty.
The next day asked for another room and was moved to another room which was nice but by no means 5 star quality.
The restaurant service was greatly lacking and the food just so-so.
Cannot recommend the hotel and will not stay there on my next trip to Edinburgh. I have stayed at The George previously and have been very happy.
