Not Bad

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Ian Business - 22/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Generally ok. I was a bit surprised by the reception. I think this is the first time I have seen a beer barrel used in this way. The staff were polite and friendly, five stars there. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise being much more comprehensive than I had anticipated. Would I stay Again? Yes.

Isla Couples - 21/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed for two nights for our 30th wedding anniversary. I mentioned this at the time of booking and we were greeted on arrival with a card from the hotel staff which was very thoughtful. Our room had a great view facing St Andrews Square and the new St James Quarter. Plenty of choice at breakfast time and a comfortable lounge area. On checkout day we were able to leave our luggage until it was time for our train which gave us the freedom to see more of the city. All in all a great experience.

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Families - 20/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice hotel and well located, with friendly staff. Breakfast is always enough for us. I know the rooms are usually quite small but normally always find them to be more than enough space to move about but the room we had this time was a bit more cramped than usual - not much space to move about in, and we were glad we were only staying one night. But saying this it wound not put us off from staying with you again.

Anonymous Couples - 19/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room we had was all you needed for a shirt stay, it was comfortable and clean. The only downside was we looked out at a wall. We went down for breakfast at 9.10 and there was hardly anything left or did we see anything being replaced, the juice machine wasn't working properly either. My husband queued to get a coffee!! only to get to the machine and it was finished!! It was eventually refilled as we were leaving. We are returning in December and will be down early for breakfast.

Not too great

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Families - 17/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was entirely too small for two people. Room 317 should be for one person or a parent and child. No floor room to even hold a suitcase! There was no ventilation in the bathroom at all which is horrible for two people. No safe either. Very poor for international travelers.

Overall an enjoyable stay. We stayed a full week and would have liked that if the breakfast menu could have been changed periodically. Room service facility should be added. The reception staff were very helpful with local tips, esp Mr Jon.

Dear DilipBatra, Thank you for your lovely review! We will make sure to pass on your kind feedback to Jon whom is definitely working hard to please our guests. We hope to seeing you back soon again. Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team

Compact

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Jim R 02/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

The Queen room is described as a double with a queen size bed. I was a solo visitor and I felt that the room was surprisingly and disappointingly “compact”. Two people in the room would have been a tight fit! The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The free breakfast was adequate but anyone hoping to get close to a full English or Scottish breakfast would have been disappointed (as I was). The bar area is very nice although many of the tables and seats are so low that they would seem very much at home in an infant school. It is situated in the New Town and is close to many amenities and attractions of the city.

Dear Jim R, We thank you for your feedback and although the size of your room was not as expected, we appreciate your kind words on our Sweet bed by Ibis and the cleanliness of our product. We have refurbished our bar last year and I am pleased to be reading you found it to be a nice fit. Our Continental breakfast is free of charge as brand standard, however we have incorporated some hot items in order to meet our guest needs and we hope that was appreciated. We do hope to seeing you back soon again, and please do let us know in advance so we can allocate you in one of our bigger room. Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team
