We arrived around 2pm Friday to be greeted by the owner. Limited parking is available by reservation, only 4 places but priceless in central Edinburgh. Our rooms (2 doubles) were typical of the small townhouse hotels around the city, not massive, but adequate for our needs. Clean, nicely decorated and presented. When we were told breakfast was 8-9.30, we informed... More

We stayed in the Broughten Hotel for 3 nights. Fiona (the hotel owner) is very nice - helping with tour booking and preparing snacks if you leave to early for breakfast! Cosy rooms. Possibility to leave luggage when you have to check out. Keep in mind: check out time is already at 10am!

The Broughton Hotel is a small, family-run hotel right down near the center of Edinburgh. Though the room was small, the bathroom was quite large, and the people running it- especially Freddie- were very kind and accommodating. We were to have had 2 nights there, but with a flight cancelled, we had to do a lot of fancy footwork just... More

It has an excellent location in Edinburgh with restaurants and attractions very close to the B&B. We had a very clean and nicely decorated room with view over Broughton Place. Freddie was very friendly and helpful upon arrival as well as Fiona during breakfast. A highly recommended option to visit the city. Also if you have a car, there is... More

The Broughton is only a ten-minute walk from the North Bridge and is convenient for all Edinburgh attractions. The rooms are quite large and comfortable. Although you're close to the city traffic, it doesn't get in the way of getting a good night's sleep. The owner serves a wonderful cooked breakfast and can offer great suggestions for sightseeing in town.

We enjoyed our stay in one of the hotel's triple rooms. Room was basic but met our needs and was very clean. The breakfast was nice and prepared by Freddie and Fiona when you order. We loved the location-- walkable to all major sights in Edinburgh and in a safe area with many fantastic restaurants within a 5 minute walk.... More

Freddie & Fiona were very kind and offered excellent value for money. Great breakfast and a good time span to accommodate late risers. Rooms were a little dated and warm but comfortable enough for my daughters and I.

I slept there one night with my girlfriend. The place is located close to the city centre. Very nice location, the room was comfortable and clean. Private parking spot is included. The breakfast was tasty and prepared at the moment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Broughton Hotel. It is in a central location, but tucked away in a quiet street. The owner was very friendly and gave us some tips about where to go and what to see. Highly recommended!

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
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 Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
