ok stay

booked at last minute and got decent price for 3 days. hotel well out of town so had to spend on taxis daily which wasnt cheap. Room very clean and quiet, hotel staff very pleasant and helpfull. Used the pool which was good. Had to pay for breakfast which at 14.95 was too costly for what was on offer...it was half price at weekends. Would stay there again but would probably look for a more central hotel

A good hotel for the price I paid, with a lovely swimming pool, steam room etc. Staff were very friendly and the room was kept clean. The location however is not good as there are no shops nearby and you definitely need a car. If you just want somewhere to stay and have your own transport the Thistle Altens is a pretty good bet.

Reasonably comfortable hotel but

Reasonably comfortable hotel but could have been cleaner. There were a lot of hairs left on the bathroom floor. The room was a little frayed round the edges. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location is good for me as it it close to family, but if it was not for this I would find it a little far out of centre. Excelent price through hotel club could not have been bettered. Due to this I realy do not feel I have cause to complain!!

Great price for us on a budget.

Great price for us on a budget. The location is not great in terms of environment (a business park) and distance from the city, but we knew that and it wasn't a problem. It was still close enough to all the places we wanted to go. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is much better on the inside than it looks from the outside - a little in need of an makeover! However, our room was confortable and sufficient. I am sure we would stay again, but will again chose to avoid the over-priced breakfast! Overall, very happy.
