Stayed in this great little hotel within walking distance of the centre of Edinburgh. The room was comfortable and clean, the breakfast excellent and the host really friendly and helpful. The bonus for us was a parking spot.

I really hate to criticise this B&B as Fiona and Freddie are such lovely people but I do feel some updating is required. The bed in our room was pressed up against the window and it was impossible to sit up and read as the pillows were floppy and the angle of the bed just didn't allow it. The fitments... More

We visit Edinburgh every summer for the festival. We usually stay out of town but this year wanted something closer to the fun. We chose the Broughton, it is 10 mins from the main shopping area, lots of restaurants and bars close by. In a quiet residential location. The hosts are cheerful, friendly and willing to please. Comparing to where... More

I stayed with two of my friends for four nights during the Fringe Festival this year. The hotel is in New Town, close enough to The Royal Mile, but in a quiet location. Our room was number 5 located at the top of the property and although a long walk up the stairs, that's Edinburgh!, was roomy with enough space... More

Excellent location for a visit to the city, just a short walk and after the hearty breakfast a good idea! Very friendly welcome and tips what to see and do etc. If ever we return to Edinburgh the Broughton Hotel is top of our list.

The Broughton B&B has made our 2-night stay very comfortable. Our room and bath were a good size and kept immaculately. Freddie and Fiona are very hospitable and willingly provide you with information and tips on where to visit and eat. Their full English breakfast was delicious!

We stayed for two nights....we had two rooms - both clean and bright. Plenty of hot water and towels. Breakfasts were wonderful. Our hosts, Freddi and Fiona were very helpful in directing us how to get to different sights. Came for the Clan MacRae Gathering and had a great stay. They have private parking, so we didn't have to park... More

Yesterday we left Edinburgh after a four night stay at The Broughton. This was our third stay at this small family-run hotel. We have always been made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrive until our departure. Our room was very clean and comfortable with the usual showering and toilet facilities en suite. The delightful breakfasts are served... More

Excellent breakfasts with a lovely selection to choose from. Nice room and bathroom. Fantastic location and lots of local eateries. Only a short walk into the city centre and all the sightseeing. Great!

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
