Hotel change

Booked holiday break and then discovered that when a problem arose
and i tried repeatedly to phone uk no it was a mobile phone you had to telephone and that the rep was in italy.
then we had left for break and got telephone call to say that the above hotel was overbooked (god job i had a mobile phone) to say we had to go to g & v hotel. the hotel was a beautiful hotel but i had taken directions for the other one and nothing for this one which took some time to find.
so i will now do review for the g & v hotel

Don't take the car

As the hotel does not have it's own car park this is a pain, especially with suitcases. it is also as expensive as london parking prices, even either the hotel discount.

Overnight stay after a friends wedding

Only had an overnight stay here, but had a lovely time, in a lovely big room with a view of river forth and arthurs seat. unfortunately didnt get a chance to use the spa facilities, but may come back another time to do just that :)
very central to city centre and although we were able to leave your baggage and pick it up later, it was a miserable rainy day and we went home earlier than planned.
breakfast was very nice, but very busy at times.
would definitely come back to this hotel before others in the area. great value for money and very classy.
only stay 20 mins by train away but it was like a mini holiday for us both
thank you carlton hotel ...

Lovely hotel

Lovely hotel in a great position. we were upgraded to a superior room which was lovely, if we had any complaints it would be that the room was far to warm even with the heating on and all windows open,but i would rather it was warm than cold. overall a lovely place to stay and great vslue for money.

Very pleasant stay

Spent one night in the hotel as mothers day treat. receptionist (barbara) was bery helpful and pleasant. room was lovely (507) with great space, huge bath and fab views across the city and water.very handy for all attractions. we were going to the playhouse which was a max 10 minute walk.

for people with special needs there are good fire safety arrangements in place. there is also help available at buffet breakfast for those who are unable to manage the great plate balancing act.

breakfast was really fresh with plenty of choice. even although scrambled eggs weren't available on the buffet , the chef gladly made them on request. plenty of helpful staff from all over euope and beyond working hard all the time to servie tea/coffee and clear tables. cleanliness was top notch. i will definitely go back asap. did not use business services but had to give a score in order to submit review

Good location but overpriced

Good central location and easily accessed from train/bus. standard room not worth the money, upgrade rooms ok but i have certainly stayed in better hotels for less money.
staff generally doing their best but inexperience obvious in several areas.
bar prices questionable - measure of baileys £6.20 - bought a full bottle round the corner in royal mile for £9.99!
although the carlton served our purpose for the 2 night stay i felt it was somewhat overpriced for the facilities and service provided - and certsinly not 4 star quality as advertised on some sites.
