Being originally from Denny, I asked a friend from Linlithgow to recommend somewhere to stay when we visited for a family wedding at The VU.
We arrived at 1am on Tuesday 8th April 2014 and were greeted by a very friendly night porter. However when we saw our room, Nº9, we were immediately disappointed. Being the hour it was we were tired after a day's travelling so said nothing. There were twin beds, not a doublé as I had requested when booking, and they were made for midgets. My husband is not tall and his feet hung over the end. I am taller so it was even worse. The shower room was also built for a very skinny person. It was almost imposible to get in the shower and if you dropped the soap there was NO WAY to pick it up without opening the shower door to do so. There was also no soap dish in shower which also complicated matters. Towel rail was also lacking for exiting shower so towel had to be draped over sink!! The room was very noisy with traffic from the main road so we didn't exactly have a restful stay. The only saving grace of the place was breakfast and the delightful waitress SIOBHAN. She is a gem and was so disapponted we did not enjoy our visit. We both work in tourism and travel all over and this is honestly the first time I have been so disappointed in a place that I felt the necessity to add this comment.
