 "Very good four star"
Staff are friendly. Public areas are nice. Rooms are fair, very basic, no tea and coffee making facilities unless you request from IRD, no iPod speakers, nothing to diferentiate from the surrounding hotels. TV's are outdated and poor. Its a shame that this iconic holel falls a little short of expectations. Especially at £350 for a weekend night, north of the border!!
