Booked a twin room as a surprise for my friends 50th birthday as we were going to Edinburgh Playhouse. Check in went ok, first impression of room was good until we looked out the large window, wheelie bins and two men sitting smoking on the ground. Phoned reception and asked for swap but was informed hotel was full - this was 2pm! Closed the curtains and decided to go for a swim - pool nice but surrounding area very wet - flip flops required. We went out for dinner and to the theatre and on our return fancied a cuppa - eugh mugs were dirty. I scraped the coffee off the bottom with a spoon but by this time decided to pass on the coffee!! Slept well in a comfortable bed until awoken at 5.50am by the rubbish and laundry being taken in and out of the corridor and door next to our room. Lovely breakfast and attentive waiting staff did little to make up for the disappointment I felt at this "birthday treat" for my friend. Did mention these things when I checked out for which I was given an apology.
