We stayed at the Broughton hotel for two nights! The rooms were very nice! Location is fantastic, you are a short walk from the royal mile. Everything is just on the doorstep! Freddie and Fiona were very friendly and welcoming! Freddie can cook a cracking breakfast! I'd be sure to stay with them again on my next visit to Edinburgh! Thank you so much!!

This is a hotel with a real B&B feeling to it. Breakfast is great, as well as the service.
Only point of criticism would be the rather small rooms and the absence of a bar. I therefore would think of this venue more as a B&B rather than a hotel. This automatically makes it rather expensive as you can also get hotels in the price region that this place is charging.
The location only a short walk from city centre and good pubs are nearby to make up for not having a bar.

All in all a nice, but expensive B&B, but with lovely service and atmosphere.

Room Tip: Just ask for the largest, although I doubt if they have these.

We have just returned from a 6 day stay at the Broughton. Everything was brilliant and exceeded our expectations. Its only a 3 star hotel but has 5 star service. Fiona and Freddie were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you and the breakfasts are what we will miss the most ;)

We stayed here while visiting the theatre. The location is perfect, close to the playhouse theatre with a good selection of bars and restaurants to choose from. The hotel offered free parking booked in advance. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff friendly and welcoming. Breakfast plentiful and freshly cooked. The only down side was the memory foam pillows, had we known there was softer alternatives available we would of choose them. But overall a nice little hotel good value.

Stayed 1 night for a winter wedding nearby. Great central location yet quiet and with the added bonus of private (free) parking if booked in advance. A welcoming homely atmosphere, very clean room and comfortable ( swap the memory foam pillow on the bed for a softer one you'll find in the wardrobe if you like ). Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked and quality ingredients.

The Broughton Hotel is small and friendly and is in a convenient but quiet location in central Edinburgh. The free parking (which should be reserved in advance) is a particular bonus since parking in Edinburgh can be difficult or expensive. There was a good choice for breakfast which was of a very high quality. The cost (via booking.com) was £60 for two people for 1 night and represented very good value

My sister and I stayed in this lovely little hotel for one night. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, the location was brilliant for exploring the city on foot. There are lovely bars and restaurant nearby, but the hotel stands in a quiet square and we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. We definitely recommend this little hotel.
