Edinburgh short stay
The customer service here was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble or effort for them, very welcoming and friendly. Surpassed other 5* hotels that we have been to for service. Rooms weren’t quite as spacious or modern as other hotels, but overall the stay was very nice. The hotel was dressed for Christmas, which also made the reception area particularly lovely.

As special as we hoped it would be
Everything about our one night stay was superb - from the easy, friendly check-in to check-out and even after that. There was no hesitation in printing our plane boarding passes, at no cost. Yes it's expensive but you know that before you book. Was it worth it? Yes, every penny.
