“Renumber your rooms”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Why is room 3-- on the second floor? When you ask the staff, they get very up-set. Why does a Scottish bar maid talk like she is from Rome? No way to adjust your room tempter? Staff looks like deer in the headlights! I home tomorrow is better than today!

Thank you for taking the time to post your interesting review. You question the numbering of the rooms 301 to 311, in fact these rooms are on the first floor, that’s the floor above the ground floor (The ground floor being the floor at ground level). I understand that some parts of the world insist on calling the floor above the ground floor, as the second floor , but we and, I believe the other 400 million people in Europe and in most of the world, call it the first floor. I am sure that these quaint customs enhance your enjoyment of your travel experience. I would propose that what you saw as staff being ‘upset’ at being asked about room numbering may in fact merely been uncertainty over why the question was asked, and how to answer it, and not part of the ‘great room numbering conspiracy’.
All rooms have client controlled heating systems full instructions as to switch it on or off and adjust temperature levels were in the room information booklets in the rooms or available by asking any member of staff.
Not all staff are born and bred in Scotland. We are fortunate to have staff who originate from 9 different countries, All customer facing staff have English language to a high level. We have never tried to get people to loose their natural accents and would be resistant to try to do so. Again most of our guests find this to be another feature of learning by foreign travel. I am sorry if all staff did not speak with West Coast, Weegie, Borders, Doric, Islander or Gaelic accents, but they just don’t!
I hope that you found other hotels that more closely matched your vision of how we should present ourselves to you. Haste ye back!

The weather was not so good in edinburgh but that was the only downside. My party of 9 ladies had the best time in the hotel, food, accommadation, leisure facilities and all the staff in the hotel could not have been better.

Excellent customer service and food and a very comfortable stay. I was in a newly refurbished Club Room, which was plush and spacious and made a business trip a pleasure. I didn't get to use the swimming pool or gym, but if I have the pleasure to stay again I'd be sure to have my sports gear with me.

We stayed just one night at this hote3l at the start of a sponsored bike ride from Edinburgh to Peterborough. It was good value for money, the rooms were a good size, beds comfortable and the showers were hot and powerful. Breakfast was plentiful and good to eat. All in all a very good stay.

Reasonable priced hotel on the outskirts of the town with plenty of parking, great leisure centre, good food choices, reliable internet and comfortable rooms. What more do you need if you want to visit places in the area.

This is a lovely hotel. We had Clubroom 88. It was huge and the bed was very comfortable. It also had the mod cons and free wifi.

You can enjoy fine dining in Lauder's restaurant or if you want have a more relaxed meal then would recommend the Bistro. The food was excellent and you will not be disappointed. My particular favourite was the ribeye and my wife opted for trout which she loved.

The breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the day. The staff were wonderful, so friendly and helpful. Nothing was a problem.

Loved the gym and SPA. The pool was cool, the Sauna and Steam room were great. Even has a jacuzzi which was just the right temperature.

We would definitely return and would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is good for Edinburgh city centre or sightseeing.
