A combined terrible review of booking.com and Almond house for the terrible management of a booking cancellation. I haven't stayed at the hotel and my poor review is from the customer service I received from the hotel over the phone and they're stance that they wouldn't cancel the hotel as it was only booking.com that could do it-booking.com disputed this....

The furnishings are tired as are the guests from lack of sleep owing to the sprung doors which bang closed and very thin walls. Communication with the staff was difficult as their English was poor to the extent that yhey didn't understand our room number! Wifi only operating in communal area. The view of the Firth of Forth was lovely.

The rooms were a disgrace,torn bath mats ,1 hand towel per room,no shelves in bathroom to place toiletries,and no glasses for water etc....

I stayed with my wife at this hotel overnight last month. The property is located at quite some distance from the city centre and requires a fair deal of walk (~2 kms) from the nearest bus stop, Hence is priced economically. Food was optional at GBP6 pp, which was a good deal for tired travelers, but skipped by backpackers. Room...

The Hotel ethos seems to be no frills hotel which is very fine with me. Personally I liked this idea as it generally means more environment friendly and less wastage of resources However the price seemed excessive for the quality of services offered, I would be happy to stay again ONLY if it was bit cheaper (atleast 30% or more)...

We booked our last two nights in Scotland at this B&B, wanting to be near the airport for an early morning departure, and persuaded by the upbeat and bright pictures on the B&B's website that - although the price was steep (L120 per night), the place and its location would be worth the price. We were wrong. Very wrong. The...
