Really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. |Warm friendly welcome from staff waiting to check you in (on line is available). Check in was quick and easy with information on the hotel explained. Was also given a handout which covered check out times etc.||The decor throughout the hotel is fresh, quirky and modern. Everywhere was spotlessly clean.|Our room was twin, beds were very comfortable and again decor brilliant and room spotless.|The bathroom has larger bottles of hand wash, good to see sustainable approach from the hotel.||Bar area nice to relax in. Hotel is also in great location for shopping, theatres and tourist spots such as the castle.||Really enjoyed breakfast. Very relaxing with buffet, continental style. Lovely choice of breads, cold meats, cheese etc, coffee was nice too.||I would highly recommend this hotel.

What a wee gem of a hotel. Excellent value, first class location, and the rooms were well appointed with everything that you could want or need for a girlie trip away. ||The hotel - is located at St Andrew’s Square. They sent us an offer for parking which was incredibly good value, and close enough to make it silly not to. The decor is quirky, and the layout of the public areas lends itself to all types of travellers. Staying here, you are minutes of a walk from the main tourist attractions. ||Every single member of staff we met were helpful, friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much bother. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms great - powerful waterfall shower, toilet and sink, and there was sufficient space to hang clothing. ||Our rooms faced directly onto St Andrew’s square - looking fab with the Christmas decorations still up. Despite this, they were quiet, and we both slept well.||Breakfast was great - a casual buffet style arrangement with a decent selection of continental breakfast.||We will most certainly return again!
