    the lovely open staircase and the food

    more bathroom toileties on the second night, the ash resturant the tables are to near each other

  • Older travelers

    the meals were very good. I feel the tartan carpet on the stairs was dangerous as the stripes were not always the same distance from the edge.

  • Couple

    Lovely room

    got a bit noisy at night on the street outside (weekend)

    Fantastic Location. I have never seen this much close location from the main terminal. Breakfast was good as well. very quiet and kind.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Very pleasant staff; communal areas interesting , breakfast first class.

    Lack of parking space.

  • Single
    7.4

    Good central location

    No wifi in rooms, internet in hotel lobby was inconsistant, lack of parking is a issue.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    An excellent venue with plenty of character. The room was comfortable and very pleasant cleaning staff.

    The poor motivation of the bar and breakfast staff.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    This is the second time we've stayed there because you could not be more in the city centre. Friendly unobtrusive staff with nothing too much trouble

    Breakfast on the Thursday morning was a bit chaotic but this was because they had put up extra people because of the snow - 2nd April which meant the A9 was closed as well as the rail line and they had had tio turn people away because they just did not have any room - it was one of those things

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Great location next to station (but didn't hear any station noise in room) with taxi rank outside. Hotel efficient with no fuss. Friendly staff. Comfortable (small) room. Bathroom with bath and shower and lots of hot water. Pleasant reception/lounge area for sitting/waiting/having a drink. Good, buffet breakfast. Grand building but needs restoring to former glory. Pretty good dinner at ASH restaurant.

    Green paint everywhere, which with the low lighting at breakfast made it feel dismal. (As there is no view from this room suggest install light boxes at windows.) Upstairs glass to central atrium painted over - such a shame as lovely central staircase and could look fabulous.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    We enjoyed the size of room, beds and tv. We were relocated to a larger room in a quieter area of the hotel as some drilling of the tarmac started about 10pm outside our bedroom, by the railway station. The room we were moved to was much bigger and with queen size beds each instead of single. We also enjoyed the discount available on the 2 course lunch we had. We both really enjoyed the variety of meals and the tastes.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Towel warmer

    The price for value was ridiculous. We paid 120gbp for a room that had insane street noise, expensive breakfast (not included), and 4 television channels (to sleep to in order to block the street noise). Parking is pitiful. I ordered a glass of wine and it was covered in lipstick (not mine). There was no food available after 9:00pm except potato chips. . .Very unfortunate.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Central location. Excellent large foyer for relaxing and reading.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    the room decor was a bit shabby the reception staff were not welcoming on arrival or check out

  • Family with children

    Location

    Hotel billed me twice leaving me £280 out of pocket. I emailed to complain the day after checking out but I've had no reply. If hotel does not correct the error, I will go to the authorities, and would appreciate Booked.net publicising this case.
