Reunion Weekend

Would recommend Tue, Sep 15, 2015
Hotel was adequate for my needs. Certain aspects in the room need looking at. 1 The window would not close and Argyll St is very noisy. 2 The net curtains were very grubby. 3 The cistern was badly cracked. 4 The bath should have grab handles as it was difficult to get in and out safely.

nitemare

Would not recommend Mon, Apr 20, 2015
Booked hotel for an overnight with my mum so it was handy to go shopping and the theater, had a great day then when we returned to go to bed noticed that the bed base was broken when we lay down, phoned the reception and they said nothing they could do as hotel was fully booked and we should have said earlier, obviously we didn't realize till we were ready for bed! Didn't get to sleep all night and when we reported it again in the morning and asked for a refund we were told to contact u as we booked through you. Also on arrival the hotel stinks of dampness, won't be back that's for sure

Great wedding trip

Would recommend Wed, Apr 8, 2015
Hotel is in a great location, 5 min walk from the train station, the shops an bars are amazing and cater for everyone. We stayed the wknd for a wedding in Ayr so we got to see even more of Scotland in the beautiful countryside. The only complaint we had was the smell in the hotel, the drains were being cleaned which was pretty horrendous but luckily the room smelt fine and lovely an warm.
