We chose the Links because it was about half way between the city center and some family we were visiting.
The good: Beautiful view of the park from our gigantic window, friendly staff, good Scottish breakfast, bar open to guests 24 hours/day (and in a city that seems to go to bed early, that was nice...especially on New Year's)
The bad: The walls were scratched up in the room, twin beds were put together to create the large single bed we requested, but there was no pad on top, so essentially we had a crack down the middle of our bed, staff had a lot of trouble transferring phone calls up to the room, it seems like the reception person also works/spends time in the bar/restaurant area so there isn't always someone there
The ugly (or smelly): The bathroom did not smell good. We couldn't tell if it was the loud toilet that was holding in the smell, or if there was a bigger problem.
