Good location about 5min walk from Princess Street, spacious rooms, shower and bath in each bathroom plus separate toilet, which is always convenient. Due to COVID some limitations, but staff well organised to keep things going. Did not have meals included so not gonna comment, but looked alright with all the hotel’s’ classics available.
