    Very comfortable,. Was given personal treatment. Rooms clean and spacious. Breakfast plentiful with healthy choices. Near shopping centre and bus stops, for both tourist and commuters. Royal yacht Britannia a walk away and a must see. Only downside perhaps is distance from city, takes a bus 20-30 minutes.

Until York the train was crowded and I learned from the gentleman sitting next to meet that there was a horse racing event. I was glad I had prebooked my seat. A …

    ... But we enjoyed our time there, admiring the sign for the men's restroom which was complete with a man having a monocle and mustache...only in Scotland. We even split a bit of scotch-whiskey.
