Customer review

22 August 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful, the room was spacious and very clean. The ensuite bathroom was bigger than I expected, and there was plenty of storage space for the twin room we were in. The bistro on-site is also value for money, and has a variety of choices for everyone to enjoy :)

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Blanka Lawruszonis

13 June 2007 Blanka would recommend this property

Liked: Staff was great! Multilingual and very helpful. Continental breakfast was a great value for the money (2.95). The only problem: our room faced Leith Road, very noisy from 6 AM till 10 PM, so make sure to ask for a room that faces the other way!
