Stayed in a superior room on 1st floor with king bed.
First Impressions were chic boutique verging on tacky. I think they have just about pulled off the look and feel they were going for however it will not age well.
Check in was smooth and the reception staff were polite and courteous if not a bit heavy handed with the make up!
Room was nicely decorated but definitely on the small side. I feel the space planning for this hotel was centred on cramming as many rooms in as possible as opposed to creating a contemporary space where you could not just sleep but also relax. Bathroom was lovely and the products were very good, in fact I didn’t even get my own Molten Brown out I liked them that much. The mini bar was an “ouch” rather than the “wow” as there was few items in there and not even 2 of everything. I believe if you’re going to try and differentiate yourself by offering different levels of free minibar based on your room type then either see it through and do it right or not at all.
Room Service was very good. We ordered fish and chips and charcuterie platter and were very impressed. They also had Cloudy Bay on the wine list so you can’t go wrong with a New Zealand Savy B in my book.
Bar area was nice and the staff were friendly and willing to have a bit of banter with you which makes all the difference in my book. Easy place to start you night out but not a destination bar.
All in all it was a pleasant stay however did not deliver on the promise of what we expected from the advertising and reviews. Did not feel it was good value for money and probably would not stay there again.
MY GRIPE: I’m from Scotland however live in Asia and was so looking forward to a proper Scottish Breakfast and was insulted by what the hotel provided (FYI we willing paid for it). The whole breakfast was look warm the lorne sausage was thin, cheap and tasteless, the black pudding was dry and the tatty scones were just criminal, floppy and dry and there was no bacon available (seriously!). My partner is from England and I was raving about proper Scottish breakfast for months and I was mortified that we were served this national disgrace on a plate. He laughed in my face it was so bad and I don’t blame him as it was “pure rubbish”! Only made worse by the fact it was that it was not made to order and from the warming plate. Over and above my own disappointment and humiliation I feel embarrassed that foreigners come to the Indigo and think this is a proper Scottish breakfast, how humiliating for us all. Just to add insult to injury, later that day we drove to Manchester and stopped off at Abington services and it pains me to say it but their self-service breakfast was far superior! For the sake of your Scottish identity, general self-respect and the impending commonwealth games when we (Scotland that is) will be on display, PLEASE GET TO GRIPS WITH THE BASICS AND SORT THIS OUT!
