Just back from a 2 night stay at the Scotsman. My wife had booked the stay for my 40th birthday and the staff upgraded us to one of their suites on the 4th floor. The room was huge and the the wood panelling and decor adding to the history of this grand hotel.
The hotel itself is in a fantastic location, with many of the cities sights and restaurants well within walking distance. The Brasserie bar is a good starting off point to explore the city with a range of well made cocktails which helped kick the night off...
Breakfast was well catered for with a range of cooked and continental plates on offer, and an endless supply of freshly made coffee..
We didn't have an evening meal in the hotel but went to a few of the nearby restaurants, recommended by the doorman Ivor, who is a real credit to the hotel.
In fact, all of the staff went out of their way to makes this trip really special for us and I'd happily recommend a stay here....
