    Have stayed at the John Pirie twice in the last month. The rooms are very clean, quiet and the beds are comfortable. The staff are really friendly and the restaurant was excellent! Bathroom is very dated, but clean and a good size.

    Thank you for your review. Please let me know which room you stayed in so I can check the A/C operation. Very unusual for it not to be warm enough. For added warmth we have an extra blanket in all wardrobes. Sincerely, Andrew Spier. GM.
