What can i say more? Good rooms, excellent breakfast every morning and a joyful start of the day because of Neil who made us laugh uncontrollably. Thanks Neil!. We extended our stay from two to four nights because we didn't think we could find an other B&B that matched the Brae Lodge. It is close to towncentre and to at... More

If you really do want to feel at home in a place then look no further. One way to experience Edinburgh first hand is to be in a traditional property of this kind. Being in a part of the residential town areas of Edinburgh with a personal touch in the form of two locals as the owners is the most... More

Very expensive for what this is. The heating turned up way too high and not that helpful when asking for directions or recommendations. Food was great and Leslie really nice. Close to town and on a good bus route.

Hi, Sorry you thought we were expensive but our website does advertise our prices and what we offer our guests during their stay. This allows any potential guest to make an informed choice. It is good to know that our heating system is efficient but each radiator does an have individual control which allows any guest to reduce the heating... More

Fantastic stay at Brae Lodge Guest House. The bed was huge and very comfortable which meant we had an excellent two nights sleep there. Our room was to the front of the house and offered gorgeous mountain views each morning. It is in an ideal location as the bus stop is right outside which takes you on very short journey... More

And we chose to stay at the Brae Lodge guest House. It's sometimes hard to write something a little different to other's, especially in when all you have to say is positive. We stayed in Room 4 from Thursday 18th September until Sunday the 22nd September (Total of 3 nights) My wife not being a great traveller tends to feel... More

This B&B is well located to catch the local bus going to the downtown. Our room had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Good value for your money. Breakfast specials were welcomed to give some variety. Would recommend.

Very nice place to stay. Good value for money. Hosts very welcoming & a lovely couple. My only disappointment iscar space, 5 spaces for a 6 bed lodge. Had to park over the road & road very busy at times to cross. But overall 5/5

We stayed here for a weekend in July. It was chosen mainly for the parking which worked perfectly so we didn't need to worry while visiting the city. Very friendly hosts, good food (loved the shortbread!) and nice rooms and with the bus stop outside we couldn't fault a thing. Would definitely recommend to others and stay again if we... More
