          Fantastic staff and amazing boutique feel. Stunning décor and luxury interior. Central location and great views of the city.

          The hotel was immaculate and was in a great location. The staff were attentive from the moment we entered the hotel offering to make meal reservations. Although the hotel is centrally located we were not disturbed by any noise. The view from our room was amazing.

          Fantastic rooms,

          No double glazing, was a little noisy at one point during the night as taxi rank was across the road

          No hot water and the staff not interested in offering a discount. On that basis I wouldn't use this hotel again

          Loved the rooms loved the decor but no hot water ??????? seems to be a regular occorance acorrding to trip advisor and when I ask for a reduction in our rate that was not an option so I await a response

          No hot water ??????// luxury hotel suite come on ???

          The staff were very friendly and helpful, unfortunately we didn't pre book the restraunt but we will definatly be back, so we will make sure we pre book as we heard great reviews :)) My partner also proposed to me in the hotel so we will be revisiting on our anniversary. Can I also thank the Manager for the lovely bottle of champagne, what a lovely gesture! See u all soon Norah, Glasgow

          Their was nothing I disliked but I do think the bed wasn't very comfortable!

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The comfortable/spacious room, the location of the hotel, the staff at the reception were lovely, the breakfast was good.

          The room had coffee/tea facilities but no milk, the breakfast was late but still nice and I felt very uncomfortable in the bars lounge in the late evening as male members of staff were discussing other members of staff with a barmaid in not a very nice way which I found very unprofessional as we were there as hotel guests.

        • Couple
          5.8

          Excellent city view from the room

          It seems there is a lot of a strange design solutions including an inconvenient shower situated in the bedroom, the full absence of the doors (including one between the bedroom and the toilet) and low hanging lampshade that can make the head bumps on a regular basis. WiFi didn't work except the reception area

        • Older travelers
          3.8

          Location

          Bar and restaurant closed, noisy plumbing overnight and no hot water available during our entire stay. Full refund given, but the discomfort and noise overnight from a water pump (every 15 seconds) marred our sleep and in turn our trip.

        • Couple
          10.0

          The whole experience. Amazing accomodation in a prime location. All staff were excellent..

        • Couple
          8.2

          The room had lots added extras like 3D TV, built in sound system. The place was very well styled. The view out to the coast was wonderful and the reception staff helpful. I would recommend and would stay again.

          Whilst this hotel is new I think a revisit over the room and a snagging list needs completing. The TV in the bathroom didn't work. No milk in the room for brew faculities. WIFI would not work on either passwords given. Toilet seat and paper holder loose. Flooring edge needs finishing.

        • Group of friends
          4.0

          Hotel was under refurbishment but there was no warning regarding this on the booking form. The room was quite noisy, the bar understocked, there was a dirty towel in the bathroom and there was no wi-fi available. A loo brush and somewhere to put soap when in the shower would have been useful. The stairway was really, really dirty (due to the building work) which meant we took workdust into our bedroom. Due to refurbishment, breakfast had to be taken in our room. There was also nowhere to sit apart from our room. Although the desk staff were very friendly, our overall view was that we would not come back and would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Lovely bathroom

          Still evidence of workmen on site - could have tidied up after their work was over, sparse tea/coffee offerings in room. room turn-down service and morning paper didn't materialise, breakfast delivered 20 minutes early (so much for lazy morning in bed!). Three different prices lists for room mini-bar! In summary - big stuff was good, but let down by small details!

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Staff were very friendly, room was great, complimentary bottle of red wine was lovely, bed was very comfortable, shower was fantastic and the location was within walking distence of many great tourist attractions

          Couldn't get the huge 3d tv to work, no kettle to make tea or coffee although tea and coffee were provided, no hotel parking but there is a parking meter outside cost £2 per hr but these would not put us off staying at this hotel again
