Me and my partner came here, I was a bit worried as my partner picked it but it was a great hotel. Bar and resturaunt, serves great food and nice cocktails. It also has the big TVs for the sport which my partner loved. Was not to far from the centre and Edinburgh is a great place to be at... More

We stayed at Links Hotel for one night prior to a wedding. We had 2 rooms booked for all bridesmaids and the staff were extremely accommodating in taking delivery of dresses, flowers etc as well as giving us a late check out. The hotel itself is in a great location in Bruntsfield looking out to the links course. The rooms... More

I booked a family room for myself and some friends. The room was large nicely decorated and had massive windows looking out to Bruntsfield links. Impressed with this hotel. It's not luxury but there's just something really nice about it.

We spent one night over the holiday weekend. Very comfortable accommodation. Good value. Breakfast and service excellent. The staff are friendly and it is remarkably quiet for a city centre hotel not to mention great value!

Nice hotel in a quiet part of Edinburgh, but only 15 minutes walk from Princes Street. Rooms clean and comfortable, really comfy beds, very nice bathroom with large shower. Bar is nice and does a very good cocktail! Above all, was truly excellent value - we stayed over the May Day weekend and many comparable hotels were much more expensive.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon to watch the footie. Hadn't been in for quite a while. Very pleasantly surprised. Good service in very comfortable surroundings. Certainly a good place to watch a game, eat or relax with a pint. Clearly a well run establishment and not a sports bar. Will be a regular visitor now.

I stayed here overnight on a two day business trip to Edinburgh. My room was very comfortable, with all the mod cons. It looked like it was recently refurbished, the bed was very comfortable and the room was very warm once the radiator got going. The only down side was breakfast. There was hardly anything other than a cooked breakfast.... More

A quaint hotel based a short distance from city centre was clean, tidy and ideal for our short break. It was very well priced considering we were staying for the rugby and found hotels charging upto £200 per night when Links charged £45. Would definitely stay again. Only down side would be parking restrictions of you stay mon-sat and will... More

A perfect place for one night. I had a very quiet room with a comfortable bed, good TV and shower. The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't seem to be working but otherwise my room was excellent. We had our meal in the hotel bar and received a discount for charging it to our room thus making it very good... More
