Hello again! During October 2015, I returned to Brae Lodge for 2 nights [as solo female guest]. I stayed in the same room, and was delighted by the smart new bathroom fittings and the fresh new décor throughout [Lesley has a good eye for interior design!]. I enjoyed the same excellent standard of room cleanliness, sleep quality, cooked breakfast and... More

Received a warm welcome when my husband and I stayed for two nights. Selected room no5 as it was on the ground floor and as I have restricted mobility it perfectly suited my needs. The room was pristine and comfortable, the breakfast was a true delight. Neil and Lesley are a smashing helpful couple. Would definitely recommend this Guest House... More

Great welcome from Neil and we were helped with our luggage to our room. The room was clean & nicely decorated. Breakfast choice was excellent our favourite was the pancakes with bacon & syrup. Bus stop was close by and easy to visit the centre.

We stayed at Braelodge with another couple for 3 nights. The rooms were clean and nicely arranged. The one room we rented was #5 and it was a little tight for space vs the second room #2, but as we travel with smaller carry on suitcases the smaller space in the room did not affect us. Someone travelling with larger... More

Nice and tidy rooms - and wonderful hosts. Neill and Leslie are really wonderful people - so friendly and funny - we enjoyed every minute at Brae Lodge and we will definitely return to this beautiful B&B. There is a bus stop directly to the city only a few metres from the house - perfect for a trip downtown.

Last minute booking -- fancied a few days break in Edinburgh and managed to secure a booking with the Brae Lodge online, had a wee bit of bother with the booking website but Neil was immediately on the other end of the phone giving a taste of the helpful and friendly service we would very shortly be experiencing.

Just saying, Thank You, seems a small way to say that we are very grateful for your glowing review.

We tend to avoid hotels when on holiday and usually book a cottage or suchlike. As we were spending 8 nights on a whistle stop tour of Scotland we decided that b & b's would be the way to go. All 4 of our choices were good but Brae Lodge does deserve a special mention. We stayed 3 nights and... More

Stayed here while in Edinburgh, you won't find a nicer couple in the city than Neil and Leslie.

Neil and Lesley were wonderful hosts, providing friendship as well as lovely lodgings; precious when travelling abroad! Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious, with marvellous traditional high ceilings and a large bay window. The location was safe and in close proximity to Edinburgh for walking and bus access. Breakfasts were marvellous, and Lesley is a wonderful cook, producing a... More
