Can't believe people are reviewing a hospital!

This is a new one on me for Trip Advisor, reviewing a hospital! The Royal as it is known is old, dirty and with quite a history which is fairly untold. Needs a good clean up and... read more

Only hospital I know that charges you for parking and it is £1.70 per hour which I think is scandalous but there is literally nowhere else to park. And both times I've been the past week I've been charged different amounts- £4.40 for 1 hour and 20 mins!!

An excellent old functional building that has been in use for over 200 years. None the less, there are modern facilities and extensions. There are extensive underground passageways that are not available to the public.

This is a new one on me for Trip Advisor, reviewing a hospital! The Royal as it is known is old, dirty and with quite a history which is fairly untold. Needs a good clean up and should be restored to a beautiful historic building and its story told. Interesting architecture

An unbelievable hospital steeped in tradition and one of the best plastic surgery units in the World. As a honorary trainee I am obviously biased but having trained in three different world class units got to give it to Canniesburn - truly special and world class plastic surgery centre of excellence !

Couldn't do enough for him to make his stay as comfortable as possible....he had no complaints either ! These staff are worth there weighed in gold...thankyou from the Mr & Mrs Bell ....

As hospitals go it's fairly reliable, busy and has a range of services for staff, patients and visitors. Staff are under pressure and very pressed for time as can be expected but are helpful and courteous. Waiting times for patients are honest but beat in minds it's a busy hospital. The older let can be hard to navigate in comparison... More
