Just got home from the Scotsman and we want to go back already.
I had booked the hotel to treat my wife as it was her 30th Birthday and we where not dissappointed in the slightest.
I had called the hotel the day before because I hoped that I could drop of a birthday cake from Bibi's Bakery. Reception could not do enough and said they would make sure it was in the room on arrival and they would store it overnight.
When we arrived Barry came right out and took are bags to reception helped us get checked in. Now I had booked a standard room dinner bed and breakfast, when Barry took us to the lift however he said that we would be going to the 8th floor (top floor on the west side) then when we got to the room we could see that this was no standard room but the most beautiful suite livingroom down stairs bedroom upstairs. Barry then presented the cake (Knife and plates left out with the cake) to my wife and gave us a tour of our room. We had a good look around such an amazing room and then Barry arrived back to present us with champagne was so unexpected and so nice.
The Spa was very nice so peaceful we could really relax.
Dinner was also amazing never really having done fine dining before if felt like we were eating on Master chef food and service was amazing nothing was to much trouble we where both so full. Still managed some drinks in the bar My wife asked for something not on the cocktail menu however bar man said it wouldn't be a problem and they must have been nice as she had 3.
We decided to have breakfast in our room which was again amazing full scottish was to die for and my wifes waffles disappeared in minutes.
This hotel is by far the best we have stayed and although we live on the outskirts of Edinburgh I know we will be going back as the quaility of the staff and hotel really shines through. Every member of staff we passed would make sure we where ok and was there anything we needed the only other country we have experianced this is America. The Scotsman staff even out shined them could not have been happier choosing The Scotsman for such a special day.
