  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Hotel well situated for Waverley Train Station, there is an entrance with lift to reception across road from Market Street entrance/exit of station. Good location for exploring the city, a couple minutes walk in either direction to old town or new town. Good sized room, well equipped with ghd hair dryer & straighteners being a nice touch. Beds very comfortable & good quality bedding. Curtains difficult to close fully due to size (floor to high ceiling & wide). Bathroom a nice size but floor quite dusty (could see it on socks/bottom of jeans). Breakfast good but would have expected a range of made to order items (only fried/poached eggs available to order) alongside the buffet offering. Seating quite cramped & close to other people with not much room to manoeuvre between tables. There is currently construction work going on in the hotel which was not advertised. We were out most of the day so it wasnt too bothersome but noise could be heard whilst in the room day time. I would not have booked if i had been pre-warned about the work going on in the hotel. It is always best to be upfront about these things & let the customer decide.

    Very attentive staff and excellent service. Refurbished rooms are of a high quality. Food great. Cafe Bar area has a good atmosphere but a bit on the chilly side.
