“Staff 10 - location - 10 breakfast 6 - rooms 2”
Reviewed 15 September 2010

The staff was wonderful. Always pleasant, friendly and very accommodating. Breakfast was OK. Typical Scottish choices. Have had better bacon, haggis and black pudding. Plentiful, but mediocre.
Rooms were extremely noisy weekend nights. High street had a perpetual party until the wee hours and the other rooms overlooking the huge public parking lot were treated to surrounding pub noise. Maybe when it gets cold and people stay indoors it will be quieter.
Beds are made of concrete or cotton balls. Heating is uneven and uncontrollable. There are strange steps in awkward places in several bathrooms. The staff will let you switch rooms if they have space, but may not have anthing comfortable.
No room service but you can go down to the restaurant and they will let you take a tray up.
No porters - lots of stairs, but kitchen staff took the bags upstairs for us.
Very convenient location in the middle of town.

Lovely atmosphere wonderful staff and very well priced. We were recommended this hotel through friends and I can say it was worth every pound. Rooms are spacious, bathroom with full bath can be termed as big and lovely jets of warm water all the time. We were three in a room, excellent clean, room service every day and no shortage of towels. Staff simply excellent, enough to say that on departure since the plane was early we missed breakfast and the staff volunteered to give us a packed lunch for the plane. The hotel is just five mins from the bus station which has buses to all destinations and just opposite is a lovely park. Five minutes away is a busy shopping street with all the main names and the shopping is excellent. Breakfast is generous including a small buffet and a choice of cooked breakfasts. One suggestion - the restaurant serves excellent food however last order is at nine, a bit too early for people enjoying a late evening meal.
