Booked four rooms here for my husband's birthday. They upgraded us to a suite and put balloons and chocolates in the room together with a bottle of bubbly and some cup cakes. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and price was very good. I rang to book and they matched what was being quoted on the...

staff very friendly and welcoming. when we went to our room the toilet was leaking. We informed reception and immediately were offered another room which whilst not a double room was quite acceptable. Unfortunately breakfast whilst a wonderful selection was spoilt by the delays in the production of food and waited for an average of 14 minutes which meant that...

We have stayed at a couple of Thistle hotels and they have been good. This one needs updating,the room that we were in was very small and in need of updating. Stair carpets are threadbare in places. Staff really good and the breakfast was lovely. The location is very good.

Great position and good value for money. Very good English breakfast with choice of hot or cold food. Hotel is well placed for theatreland and, although on a main road, we found no problem with traffic noise.

Very nice hotel, staff are particularly friendly. The food in the bar was really good. I was alone travelling for business and felt very safe. The room was adequate and my only negative comment is the traffic noise from the road, but they do provide earplugs.

“Try and get a room which is not facing the main road as rooms are hot and the continuous traffic is noisy which means windows need to remain closed although ear plugs are provided. shower very powerful so need to ensure shower curtain is pulled across and around inside the shower cubicle. ”
