Good Hotel Guide Review
If you’re looking for a modestly priced hotel at the heart of the city, this is just the ticket – a modern B&B on the penthouse floor of a handsome, buff stone, 1900s office building, right by Central Station. ‘It has a lot going for it,’ writes a regular reader this year. ‘Handy location for sightseeing, and friendly, helpful staff.’ On arrival guests are greeted with tea or coffee and cakes – available at no charge, all day, in ‘The Kitchen’, the smart if ‘cramped’ hotel hub. Bedrooms have Caledonian oak floor, king-size bed, power shower and desk, alongside views over the vast Victorian glass station roof. In summer, our reader’s room was hot despite a ceiling fan – and opening the window meant letting in street noise. Daily breakfast, and supper from Monday to Thursday, can be taken in Kitchen or bedroom, with ingredients sourced from good local delicatessens – fruit, yogurts, eggs, bacon, cold meats, cheeses, and Scottish porridge, naturally. There are kedgeree days, menus celebrating National and European days. Secure 24-hour parking is available close by but why not let the train take the strain?
