The room was clean and the decor was lovely, but the window in the room was really drafty and the noise coming from a really windy night woke us up quite a few times. Might be a good idea if they installed some curtains to help with the noise insulation.

Always stay at this hotel for business trips around the Edinburgh area, or as a stopover en route to Aberdeen. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and spotless with a good size bathroom and shower. There is ample parking, a large Tesco a short walk next door. The restaurant is fantastic with delicious food both for dinner and breakfast. I love the complimentary bread and sauce you get whilst waiting for your main course. Highly recommended.
