We booked 2 rooms on a KGB deal which included meal on 1st night. We arrived after 3pm and the check in was swift our rooms were allocated and transpired our own room (107) was facing the main road which was quite noisy, we had a quick look in 108 which hadn’t been made up, it was facing a courtyard and would clearly be quieter. I returned to reception and asked if a quieter room was available I was offered 108 and aware that it was not ready to be occupied I said we would sit with our friends in their room until it was ready. I was offered coffee whilst I waited by the very polite lady on the desk, but declined as I didn’t need it.
The room was ready within 30 minutes. It was large with a separate seating area, it faced a sort of courtyard with no view. The room is clean and has a large comfortable bed and it is absolutely roasting! There is a mobile aircon unit which was fine but we had to sleep all night with a window open to keep cool, never done that in Scotland before in January! The next day we discovered that the large unit on the wall was not a heater, but a powerful aircon unit which did the trick!
We decided to have our meal in Gavin’s Bistro where Jalal, the manager, was most helpful (he must work 24 hour shifts as he was always around!)
The Flatiron steak he recommended was excellent and perfectly cooked. The Just Laugh Comedy Store had a show in the hotel and this was excellent value at £10. There were 3 comedians and Vladamir McTavish was hilarious (had never heard of him before, but he is a seasoned comedian)
Breakfast on both mornings was in the lovely Opus restaurant and very good they were indeed.
Car parking is available at rear of hotel, however it is really small and a tight fit, I wouldn’t leave my car there even if there was spaces.
There is a short stay Council operated car park next to the hotel, fees are payable 8am-6pm Monday to Saturday (Max 3 hr stay) if you arrive say 3.30 pay for 3 hours it will mean you are covered until 8.30am next day then move your car to the car park located a few yards down the street opposite the front of the hotel. It’s £4.50 for 10 hours but as you have to pay 24hrs a day move it back to council car park after 6pm and you will have overnight free parking and if you are Sunday departure its free all day anyway.
Overall a very good weekend and would stay here again.
