We stayed for a wedding in the centre of Edinburgh but chose the Braid Hills so we could see Morningside. The hotel is perched on a hill top so there are great views and you can easily walk in to Morningside for drinks or food, or even the Dominion Cinema! The room was a little dated but extremely comfortable. All... More

We traveled with two kids and the rooms were very spacious and could accommodate beds for all of us plus enough room to go around. The service at the restaurant was great. We ran out of milk for kids at night and the restaurant was able to get it for us with no issues. The quality of the restaurant was... More

Stayed here with a friend as part of a rail/hotel short break. Hotel is a beautiful old building with loads of character. Yes it may need a bit of a spruce up but the quirkiness was part of the charm. We stayed in room 108 - beautiful bay window with armchairs to sit and admire the view, big room with... More

Loved the character of this building and the views were great. Yes, the room decor is dated but everything was very clean and the bathroom was huge - much bigger than you would get in a characterless chain. Ate in the Bistro next door and received very good service. Parked on the road nearby when the car park was full... More

I stayed in this hotel on a weekend break with my partner. The hotel itself is fairly average. I had expected better for the price, especially for the "deluxe" room we paid for (308). There seems to be some kind of refurbishment taking place as there is an odd mix of styles: from shoddy flowery decor in the bedrooms to... More

Couldn't fault this place except the lack of parking! The streets around the hotel were full and after waiting for 10 minutes only one space became empty. That is all I could complain about...and its not really a complaint, the room was more than adequate, clean and cosy. We ate in the restaurant on the evening and couldn't find any... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us.

This is of course dependant on what is happening in the area and if... More

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. My only complaint about the braid hills would be that the room we were given was quite dated. This however was reflected in the price of only £120 for Friday and Saturday night for two people, with a dinner and breakfast included on the Friday. For a room that was priced at... More

Not the smartest or biggest hotel room ever but I'm definitely going again. Where do they get their staff? Everyone from the desk staff to waiters and waitresses and the guy behind the bar was just so exceptionally nice.You felt as if you were their priority - which is as it should be but also as it seldom is....you felt...
