On arriving at the hotel my first impressions were good the reception area was clean, sleak and well attended it was staffed by a very freindly young lady who reeled off the usual scripted hotel speak, nothing unusual there then. However on completing the formalities she informed me that the Thistle has or was undergoing a refurb and asked if i wanted 'one of the good rooms' for an extra £10. I refused the offer as i didn't expect to be in my room that long, i was watching cricket that evening then going for drinks.

This place is just a wee bit shabby. It's too hot (1st sign of an old folk's hotel) now a 'Thistle' - Advantages: Has beds - Disadvantages: No room to swing even the most compact of cats in rooms, Cack breakfast, Extremely indifferent service

My latest experience of this amazing city, of which I had never had the pleasure of visiting prior to April of this year was this weekend, after being lucky enough to be selected as part of a team to partake in a footie quiz on Digital TV in the not too distant future - although can't say any more than that at the mo!

The hotel has 205 bedrooms, a minute reception area, a ... Read the complete review
