My wife and I took our 3 year old for a holiday, and opted for a Signature room which was really comfortable and well decorated. All of the staff were friendly and efficient, and attentive to our needs. The views are magnificent from the new decking , which allowed us to enjoy breakfast, and some early evenings looking on to... More

Always a pleasure to stay at the Braid Hills: warm welcome, big rooms and an excellent breakfast. Parking is available around the hotel, on the road nearby if not on site, and there's a good bus connection to the city centre. It was unusually warm when we were there last so a fridge in the room would have been handy,... More

We booked direct with the hotel rather than through booking.com or similar - definitely worth doing this as we got the same price but a free upgrade. We were upgraded to a recently refurbished enormous room with a kingsize four poster bed. The room was spotless, just a slight niggle in that there was only one set of towels but... More

First trip to stay in Edinburgh. Hotel was well placed a couple of miles out of teh city right on a bus route so made getting about very easy. Staff were brilliant and very helpful and were always willing to try to put any problems right. Room at front of building overlooked a park and gave other nice views. Room... More

Myself and my partner have stayed at this hotel twice in two years, we love it! Yes, it has dated furniture, and so the floorboards might creek in the bathroom - but that's what adds to the character of this hotel. Instead of the pristine, shiny, modern hotels, we stick with this hidden gem each time we come to Edinburgh.... More

Five of us arrived at 7pm as booked for a meal, at 7 25pm we had to ask for someone to take our order. The service between courses was slow, the plates were cold for our main course which meant our meal was not hot, no one asked how our meal was. We paid our bill and went to the... More

Staying here on and off for work. Good points: friendly staff, good WiFi, good area. Rooms are clean and the ones at the back are quiet. Hot water has been good and it's used to single business travellers. Areas for improvement: dining is expensive, parking is tough and tourists can make a noise.

Many thanks for your recent review. I am pleased to hear that you are happy with our rooms and the service provided. Our car park can get busy, particularly if we have a function on in the hotel, however, the on street parking in the immediate area is free and unrestricted so parking is not normally a problem.

After reading reviews about this hotel felt dubious about an upcoming stay. Boy was I wrong to listen to the odd disgruntledreview. Perfect location away from the hub of city but close enough to travel by bus- right outside the door. We were treated to the hotels new rooms. Beautifully decorated and everything so new and clean.
