Although a bit further out of the city, there is an excellent bus service right outside the hotel - for me I would prefer the peace and quiet with easy transport links, rather than everything being on your doorstep but noisy & hectic.

We have stayed at the Braid Hills several times over the last 2 years and always have a great experience. We stayed during the fringe, and hada great room looking towards the castle. As usual service was excellent and the staff were really friendly and helpful.

The hotel sits in a commanding position on the south-side of Edinburgh, with great views over the city. There is a lovely terrace outside the restaurant and lounge bar, which makes the most of the view, and in the lobby there is comfortable and ample seating. A frequent bus service to the city centre is just a couple of minutes... More
