The on-site restaurant is very good too, as are the staff. Read less

Shangri-la has been great, such friendly staff, an amazing outdoor pool, wonderful views of the river & Rooms were very clean. Location great as close to ferry stop & Skye train. We have been to the gym during our stay. I have really enjoyed the yoga classes. I did a free group class the other day which was great. I just did a private class with Mint today, which was very reasonably priced. Mint was great at tuning into which stretches she could challenge me more with & others which she knew she has to take it more gently. Read less

Wonderful to be back at the Shangri La--one of my favorite hotels in the world. Mr. Sprite is to be commended for the warm welcome and excellent care he gave to me at check in. I cannot say enough about the room appointments and view. Very happy with the stay!

We stayed in the shangri la and the hotel is amazing! From the views of the river from the lobby to the fantastic dinner we booked at the Thai restaurant, what a amazing experience. The rooms are well furnished and I did enjoy the hotel and their great facilities
