          I visited Scotland for a business trip. Took a couple days to sight see. Many tours started just outside the hotel, very convenient. Hotel location is very centrally located, walking distance to everything but without street noise.

          We will be there in a couple weeks. I have a few questions: 1. Do the rooms have a mini refrigerator? 2. Is there a complimentary coffee station for guests 24/7? If not are there coffeemakers in the rooms? If so- what kind of coffee makers? Thank you
