Nervous going in, loved it going out.
Posted Mar 11, 2017
The day before checkin I got an email saying the hotel has been sold, there is no gym, spa or a lot of the bonuses which helped me choose them over the Glass House. I can't tell you how happy I was that I stayed with the Scotsman instead.
The staff is the best you will find anywhere. They are on top of everything, managed to remain professional and since keys were not working, get everyone to their rooms with private escorts with no waits. The scones in the restaurant are ridiculously good and they can help with almost anything and everything. It started with Nick who welcomed me in the lobby to the wonderful bellmen who saw I was calling an uber and asked if they could try finding me a better rate.
The rooms are outdated, but that is because it's a historic hotel. You go for the ambiance, setting and aside from old furniture (which I preferred for this specific hotel), it is 100% worth staying at. I will be back and will always recommend it. I actually just did to a couple of friends who are going to Edinburgh.
