The spa was just wonderful, with heated treatment beds, excellent therapist (Hollie) and a lovely quiet relaxation room afterwards - just wish I had arrived earlier to enjoy...

Picked this hotel for its location and reputation and we were certainly not disappointed. Booked a junior suite as a surprise for my soon to be fiancée... The Balerno room was amazing with the two floors and created the perfect setting to propose. I had ordered a bottle of champagne in advance and it was already waiting in my room...

Stayed for quick overnight and loved going to sauna to get warm on a cold, rainy night. Wish the spa were connected to the hotel so I didn't have to walk outside back to the hotel but was happy for the experience. Left early so missed breakfast but loved the room.
