We cannot say enough good things about the staff at the Scotsman. Every person we encountered was friendly, helpful and welcoming, especially Abandnour. He always greeted us with a smile and cheerfulness.. The hotel itself is a bit quirky but quite charming and comfortable. We faced the castle and overlooked the train station. Even with the windows open it was not terribly noisy. The early morning sounds of the city and the seas gulls were really delightful.
We had a suite at the top of the hotel so the bedroom which was on the second floor had slanted ceilings including in the bathroom so the mirror was slanted and you had to look up to use it. this was a bit awkward to use. It is conveniently located within walking distance of everything.
We enjoyed our too brief stay there.
