We arrived at the beginning of our trip to Scotland, after dragging our bags up endless stairs to the third floor, to find a beastly hot room with no a/c, no facecloths, no feather pillows, no wifi, no toiletries. Finally, a fan was found and a sweet young man (Aaron) helped us open the windows. Very dated room. The rooms... More

Check in was basic, receptionist was very formal and should attempt a smile, it can make a big difference. Room 224 was spacious, nice decor and very comfortable. Evening meal was very good, menu was not very exciting, staff were polite and attentive. Breakfast was very disappointing, waitress was overwrought, I was hurriedly directed to a table without any information... More

We stayed at the BW Braid Hills recently. It is a charming 19th century hotel. We had great views from our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was good. The bus stop is across the street, so getting into town was very easy. The buses ran regularly. The hotel does not have an elevator, but they... More

I only stayed for one night whilst a guest at a wedding being held in the Hotel. This is an old but well maintained (Victorian) Hotel that sits in an elevated position in the South of Edinburgh affording some spectacular views of the City and beyond over the Forth and into Fife. The hotel is very traditional and is very... More

I stayed at the Best Western Braid Hills Hotel on business. I thought the hotel was an excellent location to base myself. The staff were friendly, rooms very confortable and evening dinner truely excellent. If I return to Edinburgh on business, I will seriously consider this hotel.

We had booked a room thru Airbnb and were really disappointed in it! Stayed one night and booked into BW Braid Hill! The room was huge and very quiet! It was extremely comfortable and the staff were very helpful and accommodating! The view was spectacular and there was a great park down the hill for that early morning stroll! The... More

Stayed here over the weekend if 3rd-5th July...bar,lounge and reception area looking great after refurb. Our food was lovely and the breakfast was fantastic, the staff were superb. However, the bathroom in our room was poor and the shower was absolutely rubbish, it was like a hosepipe with a kink in it, a hungry Golden Retriever would dribble more than... More

The title does say it all! Downstairs is lovely but the room we had was hopelessly outdated, a little grubby feeling and very poor value for money. Very loud on Saturday night until at least 2am due to the bar, so I would recommend ear plugs. No air conditioning so, despite window being open, it was not a great sleep.... More

Booked this hotel last minute after deciding to stay overnight rather than drive up and then back down to Yorkshire on the same day. Hotel situated out of the city and faces a very nice public park. When we arrived, and although we had booked via their own website, there seemed to be no record of our booking. However, we... More

we have just been to Edinburgh for a Tennis Tournament and was lucky enough to speak to a very very helpful lady on reception who the management should promote to the Face on Braids Hill Hotel, nothing was to much trouble for this lady and she knew everything about Edinburgh, I heard her help guest after guest with any problem...
