Thistle Hotel viewing balcony - off limits to non-residents.

This is now a "no go" zone for spotters and is only available for guests that can produce their room key, you cannot even use it even if you have bought a drink in the hotel.
To be honest, it was only a matter of time before this happened as many spotters were bringing in their own food & drink and not spending a penny on the premises.

I was taking photos on the viewing balcony at the Thistle Hotel on Monday (as a non-guest). I walked straight up the steps and asked staff where I could find the bar and balcony. I bought a drink and some pitta with hummus and I didn't experience any problems. I reckon they might make a decision based on how many people are on the balcony etc.
