Me and my partner stayed here end of Janyuary 09 for 2 nights at a cost of £160 per night with breakfast included in a deluxe room. The room itself wwas spacious and well furnished with a very well stocked mini bar - good gin etc as opposed to the usual rubbish and a good selection of speciality teas and coffee etc. complimentary. The view from the room were not all that great, but alot of the rooms overlook the train station, but our was quite private. The room had a privacy hatch, soft adjustable lighting, power shower, bath robes and slippers, plasma TV etc. and was regularrly tidied by the staff and the curtains drawn. They also left water, edinburgh rock etc. We even accidentally left a very expensive watch out and a few other items as we didn't realise they were coming back to tidy the room and everything was left as it should be. The staff cannot do enough for you, but are not imposing at all. The building is a bit like a rabbit warren downstairs, but when you get to the gym and pool it is worth it. Most hotel gym's are a poky room with rubbish equipment in - This one was as good as mine back home and had about 20 spinning bikes, 10 treadmills etc in it and a reasonable selection of machines and free weights. It was not oo busy either. The pool and spa were lovely and again staff very helpful. We ate on a Friday at the Hotel's Brasserie and the food was lovely and the bar man there clearly a professional. There was not anything he could not tell you and was a credit to the staff there. All in all a nice hotel with good facilities and very, very helpful. Any gripes? Corridors boiling, but aren't most hotels? ALSO THE COW SHED PRODUCTS WERE LOVELY, BUT DO THEY NOT KNOW US WOMEN LIKE TO TAKE SOME HOME!!!!
