    Lovely bright basement room with all necessary facilities in excellent condition. Very friendly and helpful host. Lovely breakfast and everywhere very clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend and if we in Edinburgh again we will return to this hotel.

    The hotel is very well kept, and the room was very nice. The full breakfast was incredible!

    The owner was very welcoming. The hotel had a clean and well cared for feeling. The breakfasts were good. The location was fine- West End well within walking distance. Our room was quiet and had a pleasant view over the gardens at the rear of the building,

    We were disappointed in the room which was a little small for the price. We may have been unlucky as we could see that other rooms were larger. The colour scheme - black - did not help, but this is a matter of taste. The bathroom door would not shut, but this was rectified when we mentioned it.

    Remus, friendly, efficient and helpful. Very good value for money, great room decor, easy access to all the city has to offer.Would return.

    The room was nice and the staff were helpful.

    On the website, they say that they have Internet access in all rooms. In reality, it was impossible to get online in any part of the hotel and it seems that this was not a new problem according to the staff. I was told to go down the road to the bar of another hotel to get Internet access. This was a big problem as I was there on business. As a result, I would not stay in this hotel again.

    The room was very clean. The full Scottish breakfast was good and there was a variety of choices too. The. Staff were friendly & very helpful. This hotel was cleaner than several 5 star hotels we stayed at in Scotland!

    Mobility was an issue for us. When we arrived there was a mix up with our room, but the staff resolved the problem to our satisfaction. There is no lift, so beware if you have trouble with stairs.

    The breakfast was very nice, the food and service was excellent. The location was good as well. The new rooms are very attractive and the washroom was clean and spacious.

    When we arrived, the man running the hotel gave us a room that was old and dingy, we felt as if we were in a dungeon. We were very uncomfortable and asked to go on to the internet to see the Lairg Hotel website. I pointed out that when I booked the hotel online, the rooms shown on the Lairg website were new and attractive. He then offered us the room that was new and featured on the website. The room and washroom were nice but the sheets were stained......we didn't say anything although that shouldn't have happened since the man went on and on on how clean the rooms were and specifically spoke about the sheets.
