I've just spent a week at the Braids Hill Hotel as part of a trip back to the UK from the New Zealand. It was a great spot, easy for friends and family to join me. My room was on the small side, but very comfortable with a new ensuite shower (with a rain head as well) and coffee/tea making... More

The hotel has free parking and a bar that is open late. That was the highlight of my visit. The room was a sauna and didn't have a fan or any way of cooling it down. The bathroom was remodeled and very luxurious. The ambiance of the hotel was slightly creepy but it is also its charm. I wouldn't of... More

Lovely hotel, really nice, helpful staff who made everything run very smoothly. Good meals, lots of choice for breakfasts. The sound proofing was very good as well on our 2nd night there was function going on, we thought that we would have been kept awake by noise but once in our room which was only 4 doors away from it...

We stayed in one of the 'Club Rooms' which were across the car park from the hotel. Modern, clean and very comfortable. We had our evening meal and breakfast in the hotel's restaurant. Great food and excellent service. Hotel had free car parking. We'll definitely be back.

An absolutely lovely hotel, raised high up and overlooking many views of Edinburgh. There is a regular bus service which stops directly outside the hotel which is great for getting into the centre of town, takes about 20-25 mins We went in on the off chance there would be a room available, there were no standard rooms left so settled...

Not expensive so didn't expect much as a colleague had booked for a Business meeting, but was pleasantly surprised. Great view and location over Edinburgh. Rooms small but nice. Bar is great and might have spent a bit of time there. Parking a bit tricky when full if you have a big car, next time I'll bring the Mini !... More
