If you want to be properly looked after by enthusiastic, qualified, and positive staff, then this is the hotel for you. As a bonus, the facilities are top class, the rooms spacious and well appointed, and the food delicious and bountiful. We stayed three nights at the Holyrood during the referendum, so it was incredibly busy. That did not, however,... More

Nice hotel and great location we did have a problem with a wet carpet which housekeeping should have reported before we checked in and. £20 to park your car is a bit much however we did have a pleasant stay .

Our stay was up to our expectations of what to expect from this excellent hotel organisation. Situated close to the Parliament, it was perfectly placed for our purpose. Also close to Holyrood Park and a brisk walk from the Cowgate and Grassmarket.

I've stayed here a few times, but this was my first visit since the hotel's refurbishment programme. I have always loved the location - it is quiet and tucked away, but just moments from the bustle of the Royal Mile and right next to lovely Holyrood Park and the Scottish Parliament building. The room I had was lovely - peacful... More

I have used this hotel before and came back, because of the location and the very helpful reception staff. After a long days drive they make the booking experience good and the concierge taking my car away to park was great. Rooms are great and the breakfast is excellent. It's well placed to walk into the city and not far... More

Lovely hotel. The staff were wonderful nothing was too much trouble. Room was spacious and comfortable. (6th floor) The hotel was busy but the staff tended to all our needs. The restaurant food was good. The hotel is situated just a short walk from the city centre, will definitely stay here again.

We stayed for a couple of nights, the hotel overall was excellent. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room quality was excellent, as was its cleanliness. The Hotel is in a very good location for visiting the Parliament and the Palace, only a short walk you're on the Royal Mile with all its attractions and not far from... More

We stayed in an executive room - great double headed shower but could have done with a bath, as assumes everyone is a business customer who is just in and out the shower as quickly as they can! All rooms seem quiet and hotel looks well insulated. Room was quite dark furnishings wise but was high quality. The usual UK... More

The hotel was extremely impressive and comfortable. The food was amazing and the service was professional and friendly. We would definitely return again and consider using the Broup at other locations.
