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. My wife Lesley is pleased that her alternative ideas to our Scottish breakfast and her homemade shortbread have been a success.:-). It is good to know that our little B&B is comfortable and was a hit. Glad we could help with... More

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. It was my first time in Scotland and I was travelling by myself and they made sure I was comfortable and getting around the city ok (and that I was calling my mom while I was away!) Leslie even packed me a... More

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

I really enjoyed this B&B where I stayed with my boyfriend for 4 nights. The rooms are clean and comfortable even though we were in a really small one. The area is really quiet and we slept very well. The best about the B&B is definitely the service. Neil and Lesley are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was always... 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.

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
