The hotel is in an elegant old building (used to be a maternity hospital). Our room was great - spacious and beautifully decorated. The hotel is not exactly in the centre, so it's very quiet around, but all the main sights are a walking distance away.
There is one weak point though - breakfast. The buffet is quite poor, unless you are a fan of muesli. 'A selection of cheeses' is a couple of vacuum-packed cubes. There is no toaster in the breakfast room so when your toasts finally arrive they are predictably cold. The cooked Scottish breakfast is good, but quite expensive.
So my verdict is: stay there, but but have your breakfast elsewhere.
