Best Western Plus Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel
Ranked #24 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We were in Edinburgh for 3 nights and had a most comfortable stay at The Bruntsfield Hotel, the room was large and the bed was very comfortable & the shower ran nice hot water.

Breakfast was great and the restaurant served a good meal to us at around 4pm even though we had missed the lunch hour.
The location is nice and quiet, the lively Grassmarket is about 10mins away on foot & the old town about 5mins by bus… with the bus stop almost outside the hotel, so it was quite easy for us to get to the old town.

The best part about this hotel is the meadows just outside on the opposite side.

The Staff at the front desk particularly a lady named Amanda was very helpful & shared some great information about the city tours etc, and all of them, including the housekeeping ladies…. everyone was so hospitable they all made us feel so welcome.

As I mentioned above the hotel has an old world charm about it, something in the lobby reminded me of a manor in the countryside that i might have read about in some book, yet the rooms had all the modern amenities we needed, including a pant pressing machine.
We had a most comfortable stay here and would like to express our thanks to all the staff that made our stay so comfortable.

I stay here regularly for work. The location is great, a short hop into the heart of the city, in a lovely area with shops cafes parks etc.

The hotel itself is lovely, comfortable beds, quiet lovely rooms. But the best thing about this hotel is the wonderful staff. Without fail you are greeted by smiles and the feeling that you're being welcomed home and that nothing is too much trouble. I can heartily recommend this great hotel!

Myself and family stayed during the tattoo, a short walk to town and an experience walking back after midnight after the show. The hotel is clean, well positioned and a great location next to the university. Rooms were clean, good sized and having adjoining rooms was easy to arrange. All of the staff were polite and well informed of the city and breakfast was really good. Definitely return.

This is a wonderful hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious. Reception area has nice seating area. Staff very friendly. Excellent breakfast available. Only drawback is the small car park - approx 25 cars. Metered parking on the street but the traffic wardens are vigilant. This was my third stay and I'll definitely be back.

We visited Edinburgh for four days and were very happy to stay in the Best Western Bruntsfield. Situated opposite Bruntsfield Park it has a perfect location. A lovely 20 minutes walk from the Old Town, just outside the busy parts of the city, but still in a very lively neighborhood. The hotel has good facilities - beds are fine, great showers - not to big, but very good for a city hotel. The atmosphere is somewhat anonymous (don't expect a warm welcome or very personal attention), but we found it pleasantly no nonsense. Nothing to complain about. Breakfast is good, staff is nice and helpful. To our opinion: very good value for money and an excellent choice when visiting Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Has connecting rooms for families.

Bruntsfield is one of Edinburgh's hippest neighbourhoods, packed with artisan coffee houses, bakeries and restaurants. The area is super popular with students and tourists looking to either rent an apartment during the festival of grab one of the several great hotels, including the Best Western... a truly great place to bed down for the evening!

Bruntsfield is only about 20-25 minutes walk from Princes Street however you can grab several buses that speed you up the long, gentle hill.

Also take in Morningside slightly further to the south. J.K.Rowling used to live up this neck of the woods!

Google 'Edinburgh Video Guide' for video guides to both Bruntsfield, Morningside, and much much more. It's a really handy resource for getting a great feel for the city before you get there!

Cheers!
