I liked how clean the hotel was and the staff were very friendly. Parking is a bit of a problem so we paid the £12 to park in the hotel parking, luckily for us there was a space left as there’s only a few. Breakfast was also very good, I would absolutely stay here again.

Oli varsin yllättävää, ettei huoneessamme ollut ikkunaa. Siitä ei ollut mitään mainintaa Ebookersin sivuilla. On aika ikävä aamuisin ennen liikkeelle lähtöä käydä tarkistamassa sää. Kylpyhuone on oli uusittu, joten se oli hieno ja etenkin varsinainen suihku. Meidän huone oli erillisessä rakennuksessa kuin vastaanotto. Saatiin ollaan omassa rauhassa ja rauha huoneessa olikin.

Sijainti oli loistava. Hinta- laatusuhde oli kohdilaan ja henkilökunta super mukavaa! Jo ensimmäisenä päivä kiipesimme hotellin vieressä olevalle Calton Hillille :)
