Premier Inn Dunfermline – Dunfermline – UK and Eire

We booked a last minute holiday at ÂŁ29 for an overnight stay on the way back from holiday. The hotel is located on a leisure park on the outskirts of Dunfermline & has 61 rooms on two floors. There is a BrewerÂ’s Fayre directly across the road & a McDonaldÂ’s & Frankie & BennyÂ’s nearby.

We arrived at 22. 30 & were allocated Room 39. Good size room, spotlessly clean & so much better than the Dunfermline Travelodge. We had a family room with double bed & sofa bed. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows as there were extra ones already in the room. We had a good nightÂ’s sleep.

There was a desk with CRT TV above, mirror & hairdryer & tea & coffee making facilities with additional supplies available from reception. There was ample hanging & shelf space for a couple of days.

My sister & I stayed for their “Twixmas” break i. e. 3 nights half board in between Xmas & New Year. The Hotel in the brochure looked excellent with what looked like first class facilities.

Whilst the rooms were in general very good, the standard of service in the dining room was shocking & certainly nowhere close to the apparent 3 stars.

The general attitude of most staff left much to be desired & on one occasion at breakfast my own table & another had been waiting for so long that when the waitress finally brought two plates in, 16 guests at two other larger tables immediately started cheering & clapping loudly & asking if it was hot – which I think says it all!.

A number of other guests who have been going there for several years all said that the standards had deteriorated dramatically & that they would not be coming back. Needless to say, I wont be returning.

We were part of a big group of people who traveled to Edinburgh to spend a couple of nights celebrating a friends 50th birthday. About 16 of us stayed here with others staying at other hotels in the Leith area. Six of us arrived around 12:30 on Saturday. Went in to bar & had a round. Next round they ran out of Guinness & did not know if they would be getting any more?

Rooms very colorful but very basic & very small, not even a small table & chair. No biscuits, limited tea & coffee. Toilet seat loose & sink very slow to drain away. French window to juliet balcony would not shut properly. TV very old style with limited channels. But I must say the bed was very comfortable.

The Hilton Grosvenor is a two-minute walk from Edinburgh’s Haymarket railway station & some seven or eight minutes from Princes Street. In keeping with other hotels I have used belonging to the Hilton group, the hotel was clean, the food good & the staff friendly & helpful.

This video explores the ghoulish side of the beautiful, historic Scottish city of Edinburgh introducing us to the famous 1800′s “body snatchers” Burke & Hare.

The Innkeeper’s Lodge is very clean & spotless rooms, probably a cut above the Premier Inn standard. Flat screen TV’s with a small selection of satelite channels.
