Excellent location for Festival Theatre

Room cold on arrival! Spotless! Room 340 a definite NO on a cold evening! Had to keep heating temperature at 26 degrees all night! Was Valentine’ s night and Night Club in full swing till after 1 00 a.m! Friendly staff offered change of room and earplugs! Accepted latter!! Was at theatre and returned at 10.45 expecting night cap and sleep! Who would move rooms so late!!! Hotel so convenient for theatre but felt short changed as was Valentine’s special treat! Disappointed !

Excellent city center location

We stayed here for one night and found it ok. Front reception is a bit odd as there is no checking in desk. You have to look for a staff member wearing a red teashirt. The room was clean and the double bed was comfy enough. Only one seat in the room though with no where to do hair and make up unless you want to stand in front of the full length mirror

Great Place

Pros: Location, price, convenience, staff
Cons: Cleanliness
Friendly staff, great location, basic but comfortable. Generally clean, but greater attention required in public areas and as the facilities get worn with time room cleaning needs to be more thorough. However, it is excellent value and I'll be back!

The loudest hotel in Scotland

Do not book this hotel if you like a good night's sleep. The hotel is next to several nightclubs and there are crowds of people shouting until at least 4am. However, this is nothing compared to the noise of the music which travels right through the room. This is impossible to block out and goes on until 3am, therefore we found it impossible to sleep. Ibis made no mention of this in the description and charged £91 without breakfast. This reflects very badly on them. We passed our comments on to the receptionist when we checked out. She politely apologised but asked if earplugs worked. It shouldn't be necessary to wear earplugs to get to sleep when you pay £91for a room but we acted used some and they didn't make any difference. A dreadful room which spoiled our stay. Avoid.
