Situated on the outskirts of Edinburgh, this distinguished Victorian dark stoned turreted building with stained glass windows, stands high above the main road, where there is a stop for the excellent very regular buses, that will swiftly get you in and around the City. (I would recommend the unlimited day pass @ 3.50) Beneath the dark exterior is a very... More

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel was very welcoming and the staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. I guess that some people may think that the bedrooms and corridors are a bit dated but we were very comfortable and happy with our room and we had everything we needed. The public areas are very pleasant and we... More

The hotel was further out of town than we expected which meant a taxi bill of £12 from Waverly train station. But saying that the views from the hotel were excellent, the rooms were clean and well presented, but the heating was on full blast, this has got to be one of the warmest hotels I've ever stayed in.

It's been a couple of years since I stayed here and I was pleasantly surprised at the refurbishment. I managed to upgrade my room and ended up staying in one of the refurbished signature rooms. Pure delight, and probably larger than my whole flat! The bathroom was roomy, warm and beautifully decorated. The four poster king sized bed was really... More

Booked into Braid Hills the day prior to arriving. Magnificent location with bus service adjacent. Beatiful building which gave us the old world experience we were seeking. Staff were excellent with advice and directions, restaurant and adjoining pub provided top grade meals including breakfast. We will be recommending Braid Hills to our local Australian travel agent for the benefit of... More

We stayed at the Braid Hills on our way back from north Scotland . It is tired and needs some money spending in on it, worn carpets etc, but this is compensated by excellent staff. They were all friendly helpful and efficient. We had food delivered to our room without grumbles, and the food was delicious. We were in room... More

Friendly staff. Good location although not much parking. Had to park on the road on the day of my arrival. Food in the restaurant was stunning. The room was massive and I even had a seperate hallway between the bedroom and the bathroom. The room and bathroom were a little tired and could do with some updating.
