Just got back from our second stay at the Broughton - we were last there in July last year. The hotel is well situated, a stone's throw from the Playhouse and plenty of bars and restaurants. A 10 minute stroll to Princes Street. Free on site car parking and free wi-fi. Breakfast was delicious again, with plenty of choice. Lovely... More

Lovely B&B. Spent 3 nights here for the Fringe, had stayed here in 2013 too. Rooms are lovely and clean and spacious. Super breakfast. We booked here for the last 2 years because not only is it a very nice place, but it is only 10-15 mins walk to the city centre and has car parking on site so was... More

We arranged an overnight stay for the Fringe - Whilst most Hotels seem to be charging the earth for room only - The Broughton served up an excellent Bed and (hearty) Breakfast at a reasonable price. Brilliantly situated in a quiet street two minutes from The Playhouse and a friendly welcome from the owners - what more could you ask... More

My friend and I really enjoyed the four days spent at The Broughton, where there was a friendly and helpful atmosphere. Everywhere was clean and the beds very comfortable. The breakfasts where very good, cooked as requested, with cereals and fruit available. Tram from airport was best as it took you nearer to the hotel. Local P.H. and Italian Restaurant... More

We stay in Edinburgh annually but our usual hotel was unavailable, so we decided to visit the Broughton Hotel. I am so glad we did. The location is brilliant, handy to walk into town, catch the bus or the tram. The area around the hotel is full of little cafés and bars. The breakfast is delicious and the hosts are... More

The both of us really enjoyed staying at the Broughton hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. She told us the best places to go for a drink. Breakfast was lovely. They could maybe add more variety of cereal as there was very little choice. A lot more choice of hot food. Location was fine. It's a 10minute walk into... More

The positive things about the Broughton - Fiona and Freddie were wonderfully helpful, the parking was a bonus, breakfasts were good and cooked to order, the location was perfect, away from the crowds but walkable to everything we wanted to see. Lots of character in the townhouse and the neighborhood with many little cafes, bars, and shops. The only negatives... More

Just a few lines to say how impressed i and my party of 5 visitors were with the Broughton Hotel. We stayed for 2 nights in this central and very comfortable Hotel. There was plenty of places to eat and drink in the local area and only 5 minutes from the main Princess Street attractions. The rooms were spacious and... More

We stayed one night at the Broughton Hotel. The hosts were very friendly and helpful during our stay. Fiona informed us to park our car on the backside of the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. For the break first Freddie & Fiona offer a variety of different break first. We would certainly stay there again and / or... More

Our quiet tranquil city centre Georgian townhouse hotel is set right in the heart of Scotland's capital.
