This was my second time in this lovely hotel. I've been there before,but ages ago.So before we booked trip to Edinburgh We knew that to expect and those expectations were exceeded.Receptionist checked in us very quick and also provided all the information related to our stay including breakfast time and location of local amenities.Once we put our stuff in the room,we have received a phone call from the reception and they asked us if everything was allright.I thought myself that just shows reception professionalism and perfect customer care.
Room was family type with large king size bed and single bed for child,the towels were fresh and also tea and coffee refreshments available.Hotel participates in green environment programme which actually good thing cause whole lot of stuff can be recycled after residents leave the hotel including paper and glass.
We went to Option bistro downstairs to have our dinner.The service and food was great.I read few complaints on this website about the stuff in restaurant and bar,but I didn't have any problems.The polish girl was working great and we got our meals served quickly.You can't beat tomato and lentil soup also I tried haggis,neeps,tatties which I thought wasn't bad as some people told me about it. Also came back there later for few drinks,so caledonian beer and few cocktails for my wife were for reasonable price.There is a bar Zest as well,but since we went with child we were not allowed to sit in there,it was explained to us politely,rules are rules:) Next morning we had a full Scotch breakfast before we went to city and it was outstanding.The lady who was looking after breakfast room called June was looking after everyone also had a word with all customers,this actually make me feel like at home.Well done!Sausages,eggs,pudding,bacon was very well cooked and delicious.
After the came back from the busy day in city we also we went to swimming pool and sauna. Unfortunatelly,jacuzzi was out of order,but didn't missed it much anyway.My boy who's actually special needs absolutely loved the pool.
Before you go to pool make sure you have one pound coin for changing room lockers,I was caught with that,but lady at gym reception was very kind to help me.So thanks to her.
Overall,hotel is in great location,there plenty buses route 44 to city centre as bus stop is only across the road and within 15mins walk there massive Asda,so if you are on budget,do not hesitate to walk and get something to eat or even drink,just don't wreck the hotel after:))So in behalf of my family big thanks for good time and hopefully to see you at some stage less
