Great room great size. Very modern and up to date. Loved that we left our suitcase to explore a bit before we could check in and our bags were waiting in our room. Great location perfect for walking or taking the bus to the main street.

First of all it said there would be 2 double beds in my booking on & there was only 1 double & 1 single. It was a beautiful & cozy old building but there were a few issues: there was a hole in my duvet cover on my double bed, there was a bit of visible plastering above the outlets & sometimes our electronics worked & sometimes they didn’t. There was bulging on the ceiling to the point where we were concerned the furniture from upstairs would fall through. The furniture was beautiful but old; there was a stain on an armchair & it had signs of wear & tear. The other guests were quite loud & drunk very late (not the hotel’s fault), just be aware that the buildings are old converted houses with wooden floors so you will hear everyone’s comings & goings. It’s also a good half an hour walk from the center of town. Having said all that our stay was quite pleasant. The staff were friendly & extremely helpful, even very early in the morning. The housekeeping every day was superb. The breakfast was quite nice too. They were not stingy with the coffee & tea supplies in the room which I can appreciate (some hotels are). There is no 24 hour reception, even though it’s supposed to be a 4 star hotel. It’s not worth the money I paid in my opinion, but if you were 100% sure of the dates you were staying you could choose the ‘non refundable’ option which could save you some money.

I was not aware there was no lift and was in a room at the very top of the building with 48 steps.! A member of staff carried my suitcase and brought it down in the morning although I had to come down to breakfast packed and prepared to leave as I could not manage the stairs. My mobility is just as difficult coming down a stairs as going up.

Lairg is owned by the same people who run Haymarket Hotel next door, rooms & facilities are almost identical except Haymarket has a bar while Lairg does not. I chose to stay in Lairg on this occasion simply because it was £25 cheaper on than its neighbour. I stay in this area on a regular basis for morning flights from Edinburgh airport. The hotel is just around the corner from Haymarket rail station & the stop for No 100 bus to the airport. Should you wish to spend £2 more on a slower trip, the tram stop is also there. Room was comfortable but without frills.Breakfast had exactly the same menu as Haymarket & was excellent. Both sites use excellent quality ingredients & are cooked beautifully. I would recommend either hotel for their location, value & helpful, friendly staff. As they are indistinguishable, check & book the cheaper option.
