This hotel is the best we have ever stayed in. The room was large, we booked into one of the four poster rooms, with a decent sized bathroom. Plenty of space to relax. The staff were very friendly and as for the breakfasts, well we didn't need to refuel until much later in the day. The room was clean and... More

Comfortable pleasant rooms, very attentive staff, quiet and peaceful but minutes from the center of the Edinburgh Festival activities. Nice touches such as fruit,coffee,biscuits in the lobby. Only ate Bisque at the restaurant but was very good.

This was our second visit to Edinburgh and each time was stayed at the Best Western in Bruntsfield. It is a lovely hotel, if a little old fashioned. The previous visit was in March 2014. The corridors of the hotel, make it appear as a bit of a rabbit warren. We were welcomed by two very professional receptionists upon arrival... More

Nicely presented room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Breakfast was fine, too. Located down a short flight of stairs so moving luggage wasn't convenient. Also, too near the delivery trucks in the morning. Suggest asking for another room if it bothers you.

This hotel was considerably less expensive than other options in Old Town & New Town, the centre of Fringe action, but in reality it was a very easy (and very picturesque) 20 to 25 minute walk away. It's also directly across the street from a beautiful park area, which I found very safe to navigate even very late at night.... More

This hotel is in a superb location and less than a 15 minute walk to the centre of the city. The staff are delightful. However,one of the staff,Jean Dobbie,is a superb ambassador for the hotel.She has been there 26 years and seems as enthusiastic,warm and engaging as she must have been in her first year.Nothing better than being greeted at...

My partner and I stayed during the festival period when the hotel was busy, but the service remained excellent. The bed was comfortable, the room (at the rear of the hotel) was quiet, the promised items were there and the room was serviced well. The breakfasts were wonderful, with a wide choice of food. The staff all made us feel... More

I stayed here a couple of nights with work & have to say I'm very impressed with the room, service, food and location! Beautiful! Walkable to city centre but in a pretty area with a view of park. Will be back & recommend. This meal was particularly yummy! :)

Was an easy walk to the old city and castle. Bar was good and breakfast was more than enough. Room was large and bathroom huge. Staff was very helpful. Beef at dinner was not the best. Staff did there best making up for it.
