“Outstanding !!!!!!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Stayed here for a short weekend break in January. Had a truly wonderful stay the hotel was outstanding. Everything from umbrellas, an honesty bar, very helpful staff, feather duvets, a beautiful lounge area to relax in and a very good breakfast with lots of choice topped it all off. I can honesty say it was a pleasure to stay and would strongly recommend this hotel.

Hello and thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us so much and enjoyed all of our facilities. I must admit our lounge is one of my favourite rooms - a spot in front of the fire is the perfect place to warm up in January after a walk around the city! I do hope that we will see you again soon in Edinburgh, or perhaps in one of our sister venues (Bath or Bristol).
Kind regards

Stayed here for a weekend away with my mother, who had not been to Edinburgh. It was far enough out of the city, but close enough to walk into the city to see the sights (approximately 20 minute walk to Waverly train station or a short bus ride on bus number 34 or 35 right around the corner from hotel). There is also a Tesco Express around the corner. Friendly and attentive Staff were more than willing to give advice and directions on how to get anywhere in the city. Clean hotel with large rooms, and a very spacious and modern bathroom. The room was cold the first night, but warmed up for the rest of the stay. Loved the lounge with the fireplace and honesty bar. Excellent breakfast with an abundance of choice. I would not hesitate to stay here for my next visit to Edinburgh.

What a lovely hotel with very helpful and friendly staff, nothing was to much!
The room was lovely slightly noisy as it was on the front so you could hear people outside throughout the night.
The hotel was VERY clean with specious rooms and very well priced!
Breakfast was fantastic with so much choice, differently one of the best I have had.
Location was fairly good it only took 5-10 mins to get into the centre via a taxi.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will definitely be returning.

Stayed here on Burn's night for my partners birthday. Loved the unique look of the hotel, the staff were so helpful, finding umbrellas for us and helping with directions!

The room itself was large and comfortable, the bed was huge and firm. The bathroom was cute and the heated towel rail was a god send after a cold wet day in January exploring Edinburgh. The room was quiet and led to a perfect nights sleep. Ideal location too, 30 min walk to Waverley Train Station.

Amazing value for money. Would definitely stay here again.

I have just stayed for 3 nights & really liked the hotel! The breakfasts were great & it was excellent value for money. There are plenty of places to eat nearby & it is only 15 mins walk from Princes st. There are also lots of good cinemas nearby, if the weather is awful!

We spent two nights at Brooks Hotel in Edinburgh - a lovely place to stay in Edinburgh, with a comfy lounge with a roaring fire. A good base to explore the City, close to the centre, and really welcoming service.
