Good location”

Traditional Scottish hotel. Good alround value. Location great for walking Braid Hills, regular buses to city centre or enjoying local Morningside pubs and restaurants.

Exceptional”

What a lovely stay in this very friendly hotel. We were given a very spacious family room, actually more like a small flat with separate rooms for us and the kids, a real bonus as our kids are 9 and 12. The hotel location was great, not busy at all but within east reach of central Edinburgh by local bus or very reasonable taxi. The breakfast was fabulous, an extensive choice and buffet style. We had dinner in the hotel both nights of our stay which was tasty and served by lovely waiting staff. The kids portions are huge, plenty big enough for my 12 year old son who does love his food!! We will definitely be staying next time we are in Edinburgh

Best Hotel Ever”

Have stayed her before, and still one of our best hotels, room on the small side. But was sufficient for our two night stay, Tea & Coffee, Fridge, Hairdryer, and very clean. Bus right outside hotel front door, into Edinburgh city centre, first class breakfast each morning, something for everyone, from cereal to a full cooked. Would recommend if staying in Edinburgh.

Lovely old and traditional style hotel.”

Friendly staff, great facilities.

The Braid Hills Hotel is a lovely old hotel that has a traditional and timeless feel to it. Watch-out, this means no lifts and we were on the 3rd floor - but that just added to its charm. It's only a 10 min taxi ride into the city centre and in addition to the full service restaurant with the hotel, the attached bistro offers more relaxed and informal dining.

Good”

The hotel is old and lovely in a good location just 20minutes on a bus to city centre and bus stop just outside the hotel. The hotel is clean tidy and lovely rooms. The rooms get a little hot I thought at night so I would open the window before you decide to sleep. There is many stairs and no lift unfortunately for people that need one. We didn't eat in the restaurant or bar so cannot comment on the food. Its in a quiet part of town on the hill with lovely views and lovely rooms. Good for a couple of nights away and the quiet.
