It is a few years since we last stayed at the Treetops and having just returned I can say the hotel is perhaps not the grandest however it is perfectly acceptable with a lot of good points.
It is located out of the city centre and if that is not what you want you can choose and stay in a closer hotel which I am sure you will find much more expensive. There is a decent bus service in to the city centre or it is easy enough to drive and park there.
Check in was very efficient and the staff were lovely and friendly, they confirmed our reservation for dinner on that night and told us it was an Indian Buffet and that we could have an alternative from the lounge menu should we wish it.
Our room although looking towards the ...
rear of the hotel was perfectly acceptable, yes it wasn't huge however it was more than adequate for a few nights and to be honest it was very quite and we never heard a thing all night and had a great sleep. Read More
The room was VERY clean with decent furniture and enough hanging space and drawers for our few nights stay, the bathroom was clean with a good shower over the bath and plenty of soft fluffy towels.
Nowhere is perfect and I think our only complaint was there was no shower gel provided and we hadn't taken any as it is supplied in Hilton hotels, we asked at reception the next morning about that and were were informed that it should have been there and she would get housekeeping to replace it, after being out all day we returned to the room to find there was still no shower gel (no we hadn't bought any), the cleaner was in the corridor so we asked him for some however he informed us he hadn't had any shower gel for over a week. Just to make it clear he did give us extra soap to use.
There was a TV with ample channels, iron & board, hairdryer and an alarm clock radio, no mini bar however lets face it as per every hotel you would only be charged an exorbitant rate to use it anyway so no issue there. Tea & Coffee with some shortbread was also provided for that early morning cuppa.
The bar was a pleasant enough place to sit for a drink either before or after your dinner, yes the prices are higher than a public house but that is the same in every hotel and to be expected, and the bar staff are very friendly and attentive.
As I mentioned on our first night there was an Indian Buffet which we had and I thought it was pretty decent, warm very tasty and a reasonable choice, if you don't want that you can get a decent dinner off the lounge menu. Our dinner from the restaurant on other nights was lovely and very well presented, the Cullen Skink was delicious.
Breakfasts were very good indeed, you have a choice of a lovely full Scottish with an excellent selection to choose from, ask for your eggs in a particular way if they are not out, a continental with cereals and bread / pastry and there is a good selection of freshly prepared fruits and yogurts etc etc.
A big plus is having the use of the excellent leisure facilities, we had a good time using the pool and the sauna / steam room, there is also a well equiped gym.
All the staff we met were lovely and couldn't do enough for you so to all of them a big 'Thank You' and we will see you when we hopefully return again soon as we surely will.
