We stayed for 2 nights in a triple room - room was just right for 3 people, with one double bed and one single bed. Great communication prior to our stay, and check-in and out was fuss-free. Shampoo is provided, but do bring other amenities...More

Second time we've stayed at the Broughton and once again greeted with a friendly and welcoming host. The rooms are clean and comfortable, perfect for a short break . The excellent breakfast will set you up for a day of Edinburgh sight seeing!

We stayed for one night in this charming little hotel and were very pleased. The owner couple were very friendly and flexible with our ”special needs” with the luggage, the breakfast was fresh and delicious and the (tiny) room clean. We would defenetly come again.

This small hotel is clean and welcoming. Our stay of three nights was most enjoyable. The rooms are not large but very comfortable. A huge bonus is free parking with the accommodation being so near to Central Edinburgh. It is a gentle 5-10 minute walk...More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed
identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found
a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but
overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even
if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art
galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of
