More like a B&B than a hotel. Very quiet and in a great location. Room was very comfortable. Extremely nice hotel personnel. Breakfast every morning was excellent. Will definitely stay here again should we return to Edinburgh.

Dear miriambf2015 Thank you for your wonderful review. I can only surmise by comparing us to a great B&B is due to the fact that we offer personal unwavering service. Another wonderful review of our breakfast. The breakfast certainly gets the body ready for whatever the day may hold, whether it be a stroll around the nearby Links, or a... More

We chose the Bruntsfield for its proximity to a concert venue. From check-in to check-out we could not fault the service. Without exception, all staff that we came into contact with were friendly and could not do enough for us. I want to particularly thank all the staff who helped in my search for a misplaced piece of jewellery (eventually... More

We stayed at the Bruntsfield on recommendation of a local friend. Since we were traveling with a baby they arranged for a baby cot for us. We had dinner in the restaurant in the basement which was also great.

We stayed here with friends for a pre-Christmas break and to visit the Christmas continental markets for the first time. The hotel is located opposite parkland so it has the feel of an out of town place, which we like, but it is also near enough to the city centre to walk into from it. The room was large and... More

Dear GiffLancashireUK Thank you for your review of BEST WESTERN PLUS Bruntsfield Hotel. Our location does certainly make one feel like they are out of the city, but with only a short walk, this is a welcome illusion. We are sorry to hear that you felt the decor was not to your taste.

This hotel is ideally located to explore the main sites of the city whilst being situated in a genteel setting. Reception staff particularly Regatta was very kind and helpful. The bar offered a good range of gins and whiskeys!

On 04/05/14 my friend and I returned from a great stay at this hotel. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, every member of staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. As a disabled visitor they reserved a parking space for me which I could use for the whole of my stay. We stayed in room 111 (which... More

Loved the location near The Meadows, shops and restaurants. A little outside of the bustle of the center city but very convenient for sight seeing as well. Stayed 8 nights in a very comfortable room with big window view of the park across the street. Front desk employees were friendly and always willing to help! Breakfast was wonderful in the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had 5 family rooms between us. Cannot fault the service or the quality of the rooms.

This was a 4 day break in Edinburgh for the first time for my wife and I. On arrival we were greeted by very helpful staff who had arranged for our room to be ready ahead of schedule as our flight from Gatwick arrived early morning.

The hotel was everything we had hoped for: medium in size with a homely atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff and a comfortable and quiet room with excellent facilities. The attached Bistro was very attractive with s very good and reasonably priced menu. Service couldn't be faulted. We would definitely recommend.
