Superb 9.0 From 933 reviews

Very good 8.0
fantastic stay!!!
First of all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is beautiful. The views are also amazing. We had a double director room and it was so lush. This was a bday gift for my boyfriend and he was so happy. ECouldn’t fault anything, except the aircon in the room made me quite ill. Maybe down to poor ventilation, but I’ll get over it. If this could be fixed, It’s the perfect stay. Wish we would have had chance to eat at the beautiful restaurant they had and also the vintage cinema. I think I will definitely come back to this hotel and would definitely recommend it!!

Beautiful hotel
My trip to the Scotsman hotel was a special treat for my friend on her birthday. I paid extra for a suite with city views, when i went to the room it was not quite what i expected so i went back to reception. The staff could not do enough for me and offered other rooms immediately. The rooms are beautiful, extremely comfortable with a fabulous shower. All staff in the hotel were very nice and polite. It is a buffet breakfast which wasnt very hot, it was kept under heat lamps. However you can have a choice of other things off the menu i reccomend eggs royale! Very scrummy. The hotel is ideally situated directly across the road from the train station and within sight of the airlink buses from the airport. I will definately return to this hotel.
