4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have been to this hotel many times and thought it excellent for a buffet after my mother-in-law's funeral at Mortonhall as only minutes away. We had asked for drinks to be laid on when we arrived but coffee and tea were put on the table first even before the buffet arrived. I went round round the tables thanking the... More

All the staff were very friendly and helped make the stay enjoyable. The hotel has good views of the surrounding countryside but has good access into Edinburgh. The breakfast is excellent and the bar (and whisky selection) is great.

stayed at the Braids with my friend last friday night. We were meeting up with friends and took advantage of the Winter Deal, £45 for the room bed and breakfast. For the price I reckon we got a pretty good deal. The room was a bit dated decor wise but was clean and the beds were comfy. Staff were friendly... More

Most of the staff were very nice but our barman was a bit dour and unsmiling. Also, he seemed a bit overstretched - sometimes, he took a while to see to our order. The hotel is a bit dated in places and the showers are clearly a bit uncertain but overall it was comfortable and welcoming. The bar food was... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am pleased that you had a comfortable stay with us, although it is concerning to hear that the barman appeared to be under pressure. The hotel is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment programme, and whilst the public areas have been completed the guest bedrooms, as I am sure you... More

Stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas. Had an issue with first room size given, reception quickly offered an alternative which was much better size wise. Lovely public areas, rooms definitely need updating but warm and comfortable. Bathrooms very old fashioned and very loud extractor fans. The bathroom in room 313 particularly bad, a dark bath tucked in corner with... More

Our family spent Xmas day and hogmanay at the braid hills hotel. The staff were simply outstanding from heather, Michael the Latvian girl and the Greek barman we were made to feel very welcome and all requests were dealt with promptly and with a smile. The food was top class on both days and I would highly recommend the hotel... More

Just spent four nights at this very friendly hotel. Triona on reception was exceptional and made our stay all that bit better. Room was clean and very spacious and breakfast had all the options. Would happily stay again.
