Good Hotel Guide Review

Hop along to this ‘brilliant’, budget-friendly spot – ‘just like a very upmarket hostel’ – popular with the young and young-at-heart. The entrance, on an ‘anonymous, un-hotel-like office block’ beside Central Station, may seem overwhelmingly urban, but step in and take the lift to the top: cool Scandinavian interiors, a friendly welcome and sweet treats await (think of gingerbread slices one day, home-made ice cream another). ‘We loved the views and the little touches, especially the cakes on arrival.’ Cheery, high-ceilinged bedrooms (some snug) are kitted out with bottled water, fresh milk, a tube of Smarties; stylish bathroom ‘pods’ have a power shower and Scottish toiletries. ‘We found our room quiet, despite it looking out over the dramatic glass roof of the train station.’ Four nights a week, stay in for a simple supper (pea, asparagus and parmesan risotto; braised Tuscan sausage and mash) – or see the hip in-house city guide for dinner recommendations close by. In the morning, an ‘excellent’ breakfast buffet is supplied by local producers and delis: yogurts, fruits, freshly baked breads; cheeses and cold meats; traditional Scottish porridge.

Guest comments

'An excellent choice of the GHG. Spotlessly clean, quiet, Scandinavian-style back room. The bed was comfortable. the shower was large. Breakfast was excellent, with good bread. It has not got the frills of a large hotel, but this is the place to be, and quality is brilliant. ' - AD & J. Lloyd - May, 2016
