Very dated hotel, no heating on in room

Only thing room was clean and bed was comfortable.
The young man on reception was lovely, Very helpful! We walked into our room which was cold, thought the radiator was turned over for, it was on. No heating in the bathroom either! Although the room was clean, it was very dated. We phoned reception to ask about the heating to be told it was on. Clearly not in our room. They said someone would come up. We waited 30 mins and nobody turned up. The only good thing about this hotel is its central and easy to get around the Center.

Fabulous Hotel

The Staff, the location and the cleanliness and comfort of the room and main areas
We had an excellent overnight stay. The room was spotless, very comfortable, great bed and huge bathroom. Overall we couldn't have faulted this hotel. The staff were wonderful very helpful and polite and the location was great. Right on Princes street. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return and recommend.
