Poor Stay
Room was changed to an enormous suite which although spacious, was unneeded (4 beds for only myself and my partner) Service on entry and leaving was very poor. Unfriendly staff who were rude and not knowledgable on the hotel and room. Would not stay here again.

Buy some new mattresses
We were put in a twin room despite booking a double but maybe that was because we tried to check in half an hour early. One of the twin beds had a terrible mattress. Seemed like the springs had broken. Sagging into the middle.
Colin, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
The staff were lovely but the room could have done with a good clean especially the bathroom the radiator was dripping the floor was filthy in corners there was what should have been fixings on walls but must have broken off and left The room we were in you could hear what sounded like running water must have been pipes from upstairs down the wall the bed was on, we had 2 cups one spoon and one saucer for our 3 day stay there was no batteries in tv remote and no towel change in the 3 days it says 4* but I would not say above 3*
Lorraine, gb3 night trip
Fair 4.0
Went for a nice 4* experience in Edinburgh. I came out barely rating the place 3*. The room did not have the basics like a hairdryer. I had to keep going to reception asking for small bits you expect in a room. After following normal protocol of keeping the door handle label to have the room serviced, I did not realise you had to declare to the reception also for the room to be serviced. Considering the cleaners equipment was placed conveniently outside my room (which is on the ground floor and next to reception, in perfect view), making it impossible for them to miss the sign on the door. We had multiple insect within the room and bathroom, which would have died in the bathroom and the bedroom. The breakfast was the biggest let down. They clearly do not have enough staff working to operate a smooth running service, with very minimal option. The poor staff was swept off their feet the whole time with one person having to clean and tidy the whole dinning area. I will not be staying there again.

bad place to stay
The room was too hot to the point where my mum slept on the bathroom tiles. The hairdryer nearly set on fire. When explaining this to staff they were so rude. We asked for a fan and got told no, later to find out that they did have access to fans.
