BOO!

by written on May 25, 2006

I never stayed here, I stayed in Royal Mile Backpackers across the street for months though. I can only offer a story about it...basically its haunted.

Unique Quality: This hotel is haunted. Back, long before it was the Crowne Plaza, this hotel had a fire. There were people that climbed into the food elevator (forget what they are called, but the elevator which takes food from the kitchen in the basement to the restaurant on the main floor) to try and escape the fire and burned to death.
Ever since, there has been random times when the fire alarm goes off for no reason. Not only that, they find it impossible to shut it off. I saw this happen twice in 6 months while I was there.
It may be cool, or an annoyance to you, depending on what you are looking for and your personality, but be prepared for it. It may happen at any time.

I would recommend staying here though, just for the reason that it may happen to you and it would be a good story.

Quality Hotel

My mother stayed here a few years back and still has fond memories of the visit. The hotel is a new build that easily blends into the High Street architecture.

All rooms are well laid out and an extra bonus is the free broadband access. There is complimentary access to the Leisure Club and pool.

Unique Quality: The hotel has an underground car park ttat is rare in a city centre hotel. The is a chargeof ?7.50 per day for this service.
