Fantastic value for money, totally recommend!
The Pentland Hotel itself is a bit dated so needs refurbished in some areas. We stayed two nights as stopovers whilst travelling to/from Orkney. The first room was tired but second room was very cosy and modern. The cleanliness was 10/10 in both rooms. The staff couldn’t do more to help and were very welcoming. The evening meals and breakfast were fantastic. Portion size, choice and value 10/10. Especially during covid restrictions we were made to feel safe. Totally recommend!

The Pentland was located centrally in the town and was easy to find. It is a lovely classic style hotel with a revolving door and sweeping staircase. The room was spacious and clean. The matteress was hard but comfortable. The staff were friendly and good instructions were provided at breakfast with reference to covid. We had stayed at other hotels this same week where staff hadnt given any instruction then moaned at you for not following their guidlines. This wasnt the case here. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and the server was friendly and chatty and her experience was noticable as she swiftly went about serving the guests with ease. Apart from struggling to find a parking spot (have to park outside on the main road) overall I was very impressed with the hitel.
