Some food and beverage staff are less than satisfactory needing some training in guest focus. Check in and concierge staff were without exception outstanding on day shifts. The night staff are a little too casual for the style and standard of accomodation, unshaven, no jackets, ties loosened off. Not a professional first impression for anyone arriving after hours. Breakfast was sufficient and the setting is comfortable. A wonderful touch is the small decanter of whiskey in the room, quite apt for the hotel given location and heritage.
Nicholas P. Families with older children United Kingdom, July 5, 2014

location, price fo value, room size

the scotsman hotel located in the center of old town. location is very convenient. and it's service is also good. Generally speaking, the price of this hotel is not expensive comparing with other hotels in UK. Just UK has 20% tax. this is not good.
