Lovely old building, a bit worn in places and the free wifi was quite limited. One of the pillow cases had an unpleasant-looking stain and the room was needing refurbished. However, the staff were brilliant and very friendly, from the receptionist Grainne (what a character!) to the restaurant staff and the cleaners.

We stayed at the Braid Hills Hotel whilst attending the Edinburgh International Harp Festival. We found the hotel to be an ideal location for exploring Edinburgh. The hotel has adequate car parking, and there is a regular and frequent bus service into the city from outside the hotel. We booked one of the more expensive rooms which we found to... More

This hotel was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Really lovely Staff, friendly and efficient... made us feel very welcome and at home there. The refurbished rooms are stunning, as are all the newly decorated public rooms... even the Ladies toilet is beautifully done. Dinners were very nice, breakfasts great - really can't think of a thing to complain... More

We stayed for several nights and overall it very pleasant and we would go again if visiting Edinburgh. The hotel décor was tired, one of our party had torn wallpaper in their room and our room overlooked the car park, but these did not spoil our stay, they are just observations. My one warning would be that we could not... More

Having had to leave a horrid hotel in a hurry this hotel was our saviour! There staff are lovely and helpful the rooms are small but clean with comfy beds. The decor needs a little updating but it's not too bad. There is a nice bar on site and some comfy arm chairs in the lobby to sit and relax... More

We spent one night here and would have been happy to stay longer. The rooms were smart, clean and pleasant with a good bathroom. The staff were really friendly and eager to help. This is an ideal location for sightseeing as you can walk down a few steps from the hotel car park and be directly opposite a bus stop.... More

The rooms were good size and the staff were very helpful and courteous. Overall enjoyed the stay, a good place to stay. If looking for... More

Stayed here for a 2 night break. When we arrived at the hotel, my first impression was, great location and view. On entering the reception, my second impression was, slightly let down. No lift in hotel, which was not stated (I could not see) on website. My parents were travelling with me and my wife. My mum is disabled, but... More

stayed in this hotel and loved it. Really nice setting up high away from the road. It was quiet and a short bus ride from the city centre. We had a lovely room, but small but it was clean and cosy. Would definitely stay again
