Should firstly say that we stayed on a better than 50% off Itison voucher, so that will be reflected in the 'value for money' rating.
This is a nice, modern hotel, in a very central location, five minutes from Queen Street Station and about the same from Central. Could have been very noisy due to the city centre location, but the triple glazing cancelled out most of the noise. And the air conditioning got a good work out due to the very un-Scottish hot weather! When we checked out another guest was complaining about the fact that the windows couldn't be opened, but we found the air conditioning to be very effective.
Our standard room was a decent size. And the bed was very comfy. The shower room was OK - except for the inexplicable lack of towel rails (perhaps because they would have spoiled the aesthetic of the room?!). And the shower was nothing to write home about - but I find that showers even in the most expensive hotels are usually rubbish.
Can't fault the service or the helpfulness of the staff, but this may have been partly been because we stayed a Sunday and Monday night and there were very few other guests around. And they were probably a bit too friendly for us - but that's cos we're miserable old beggars and don't really want to talk to anyone when we're on hols!
Another big positive - I had to cancel our initial booking at very short notice and they were good enough to let me book an alternative two nights (they didn't have to do that under the terms of the deal).
A couple of additional, very slight, niggles. With it being a VERY new hotel, there was a lingering paint smell in the room. I'm sure that will wear off in time. Oh, and I think this may have been the first time I've ever had to make my own tea as part of a hotel breakfast, but the very flash coffee machine made up for that!
All in all - depending on the price - I would happily stay here again.
