We stayed in the Bruce for two nights as it was in a convenient to a funeral we were attending. I paid £120 for two nights including breakfast and as we were staying as a necessity rather than on a romantic break, I secured the booking via Laterooms. On arrival we parked in the car park below the hotel and... More

We stayed at the Bruce when we went to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo because it's just 90 minutes away. We were extremely disappointed because we specifically asked for a disabled room when booking the trip Newmarket Tours. When we arrived at the Bruce they advised us that they don't have ANY adapted rooms for disabled guests. They do have what... More

Booked an executive room in early August and arrived to find the room in no way matched the images on the Booking.com website. The room was very small and poorly equipped. Bathroom very tired and needing refurbishment. We parked underneath in the hotel carpark and noted bags of unwashed linen, piles of rubbish in bags and heaps of assorted junk... More

Stayed at the Bruce Hotel whilst travelling with Newmarket Holidays on their Edinburgh Tattoo Lochs and Steam trip. The hotel is quite central and convenient to the Shopping Mall to buy sandwiches for days out.The décor downstairs is fine but our room would have benefitted from an update but we were not in it much and the bed linen and...

I was given a voucher for Sparkling Afternoon Tea at Guys Restaurant as a 50th birthday gift. I had no idea that it had a 3 month time limit and when I was ready to redeem the voucher it was two weeks out of date. I am sure that the manager could have used his discretion and let me redeem... More

Stayed at the Bruce Hotel last weekend the decor isn't too bad and is quite modern inside, the ladies loos could do with an update and the hotel definetly could do with a disabled toilet and disabled rooms too. The staff are brilliant and nothing is too much for them. I would recommend this hotel and the food was very... More

This is possibly the most unpleasant room I have stayed in for many years. (room 202) Flaky paint, disgusting mouldy shower, broken tiles, stained floor in the bathroom, broken door chain, stained furniture, grubby carpets and dirty paint on the walls. We probably could have asked to change rooms, but looking at the doors and paintwork of the other rooms... More

Stayed at the Bruce during a Newmarket coach trip to this year's Edinburgh Tattoo. It's a very nice town centre hotel. The room we stayed in on the first door had been recently been refurbished and was very nice. We were told by others in our party that the rooms on higher floors were still to be done. We were...
