    Fantastic hotel for mini-break, right next to train station and Royal Mile. Can walk everywhere. Customer service was excellent, arranged golfing, taxis and dinner bookings. Clean room. Just sad did not have time to use spa. Will stay again!

    Pool & Spa is completely shut down in March, no access what so ever. When I expressed my disappointment, they told me to jog outside. 🤣
