Exceptional 10.0
Good hotel, tasty breakfast.
The room was good, staff helpful and breakfast tasty. Good location to get into the centre. Room was a bit of a hike two floors up no lift and along corridors. Had I known I would have asked for a room on a lower level. My luggage was heavy but the reception organized someone to take it up which was really good. Overall everything was super.

Poor 2.0
A Disgrace to Scotland.
WiFi very slow not high speed as advertised. Cannot drink water from taps in bedroom. Is this Scotland? Disgraceful. What are you supposed to use to brush your teeth? Bedroom cold late morning and afternoon - miserable. Curtains would not close - had to phone reception. Staff friendly and helpful BUT facilities not worth the money.
