Having stayed previously at the Mercure in Edinburgh see review “5, 4, 3, 2 .......1”
I am pleased to say that this Hotel is 100% better in every respect.
The staff are excellent, polite, courteous and professional, nothing is too much trouble. Emma in the restaurant take a bow!!
My room (516) was light and airy and the view was fantastic from the Firth of Forth on the left to the Castle on the right.
The room was spotlessly clean.
The restaurant food was well cooked, tasty and varied, the Wensleydale topped mushrooms were a particular highlight.
A couple of niggles.
No free wifi - in this day and age!!
The water pressure for the shower was very low
American tourists - well one american tourist
Waiter " Good Morning Madam and how are you?"
American Tourist "Don't talk to me until I've had coffee"
If this was meant to be funny, it wasn't and supported all the "Americans are loud, brash, ignorant and arrogant" stereotypes
I do sympathise with Earl, the erstwhile partner of the above "lady"
