Comfortable Outskirts Hotel”

The hotel was very comfortable. The bed was enormous - size of 2 singles! Views over to City and the local hills. Very quiet locality. A short walk down to the A702 has frequent buses to City and Ocean Terminal (HMY Britannia) - Driving & parking in City itself is difficult and expensive so take a cheap bus. Also local shops & restaurants on A702.

The hotel is old and lovely in a good location just 20minutes on a bus to city centre and bus stop just outside the hotel. The hotel is clean tidy and lovely rooms. The rooms get a little hot I thought at night so I would open the window before you decide to sleep. There is many stairs and no lift unfortunately for people that need one. We didn't eat in the restaurant or bar so cannot comment on the food. Its in a quiet part of town on the hill with lovely views and lovely rooms. Good for a couple of nights away and the quiet.
