A lovely comfortable, friendly hotel, especially over the Christmas period. The room was very spacious with a lovely outlook.Everything you need tea/coffee.Lovely ensuite, with powerful shower. Comfy bed and blackout drapes. Easy access to bus route, which takes you into the city centre. I enjoy the friendliness of the hotel, and the Christmas decorations.

Excellent food in the restaurant at dinner; good service in the bar and nice to see a real ale on hand pump. Good bus connection into town and not too far to go to theatres and cinemas.

What a pleasure staying at the Braid Hil Hotel, we have stayed many times, but since it was taken over it now has the WOW factor. We are awaiting our best Western card, so you even get points towards future stays, how great is that.

The staff were welcoming. The hotel was all I had hoped for. The food was very good and excellent value. Getting into the centre of Edinburgh was quick and easy and going to Queensferry and over to Fife could hardly have been easier. I will use this hotel the next time I visit Scotland's capital.

The service and comfort provided was above par and after spending the day at some of the many attractions that Edinburgh has on offer it was great to return to the hotel to relax and plan the next day.
