This is the previous Midland Hotel from the days when rail travel was for those that could afford it. It is elegant - going on majestic - refurbished and gleaming. We had Room 420 - a Junior Suite - very reasonable as we booked in advance - it was fabulous - lots of period charm - even an open fire grate/surround - and an 8' bed !!!
The whole hotel was clean. I repeat - the whole hotel was clean. So many are not.
Our room had flat screen TV, trouser press, iron and board, good hair dryer, electronis safe, mini bar and fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, free WiFi or wire. What more do you want.
The staff were terrific. Nothing more to be said. Terrific.
The hotel has the "Scottish Steak Club" restaurant - it is VERY good - and has special offers. Beautiful decor - excellent service - good menu - and clearly a really good chef - all for a very reasonable price. Why go to other 'chain' restaurants and pubs that give you food micro-waved from a plastic bag ? The wine prices here were enough - but that's life - at least they were good wines.
They were doing building works/refurbishments while we were there - but its good that they continue to invest in the property - and the builders didn't make any noise after 5 pm.
The location is dead central. Look at the map.
We are very picky people - but we had a truly great time at this hotel - and we want everyone to know it.
