  • Liked: Staff & service

Good location within walking distance to Haymarket station. The hotel furniture etc is tired looking and could do with an update. Housekeeping standards need upgrading e.g mound in showers is not acceptable.

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The socket at the table cannot be used for charging mobile phones. The other socket is only near to the door and installed at a very low level near to the floor. The electrical kettle seems to be out of order as the handle of the kettle was too hot to grasp.
