    Great

    The choice of breakfast was amazing as was the cooking.

    No way of drying the towels in the bathroom. Needs more shelving/hooks in the bathroom.

    The comfortable bed and the offer of whisky or sherry in the room.

    The smell of cigarette smoke when you entered the building! The low pressure in the shower.

    Very good

    The room was nice and warm , lovely view of the garden ,even in the dreadful Scottish weather.Breakfast was good too , plenty of fruits and cereals ,also eggs , sausages etc served with a stiff Scottish gallantry (that you can meet everywhere , seasoned though with their excellent sense of humour ) .Comfortable bed ,nice to have whiskey and sherry offered , also a selection of teas and coffee in the room .Free parking in front for 6 cars in two rows , no more , which means you have to be prepared to remove yours if needed to make room . It was a positive experience all in all but if I had to choose for the best feature , it must be the room : large , with a warm atmosphere , makes you feel at home

    The bathroom is small and has some minor problems , but nothing is perfect right ?This is however compensate by the fact that it was very clean .Also , the hotel is at few bus stations away from the centre , so if you want a late beer somewhere there you have to take the bus and shiver a bit in a bus station, waiting (not too long , mind you) .But I blame the weather mostly , which is by far the worse thing that you can hold against Scotland .

    Perfect

    The room was clean and a good size, and comfortable enough. The breakfast was wonderful and service was great.

    Possibly a normal breakfast on New Year's day (instead of just a breakfast box) would have been better for those who could have made it in the morning.

    Perfect

    Staff were friendly and helpful while our room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Buses run frequently and even overnight and stop 30 seconds from the front door. Also a few restaurants/pubs nearby if you don't want to venture into town. Couldn't have asked for more.

    Good location, very good bus routes went right past the hotel. Excellent breakfast selection in the hotel. Very friendly staff. Competative rates, some of the other hotels we looked at had doubled their prices during the Tattoo/Festival period. Complimentary whiskey and sherry in the room on arrival.
