There are lots of hotels in Edinburgh, Scotland. On a recent visit to the city, to hear a recent gig by our nephew's band, Thirty-three Connection, my husband and I stayed over after the performance at the Best Western Edinburgh South, Braid Hills Hotel. There is good parking and it is easy to reach the city centre from here. I...

We travel to Edinburgh frequently, usually to visit family. We either stay in private accommodation or different hotels. On this occasion we wanted a location close to where my wife's elderly parents live, so we chose the Braidhills Hotel; which my wife remembers from her childhood when her Grandfather used to take her for lunch & afternoon tea. We were...

Spent a lovely weekend here with my partner. The check in was quick and the staff were friendly. The room itself was what you might expect for a very nice chain hotel, well presented and clean. The breakfast was superb, in the lovely restaurant with good views over parkland. A variety of cooked breakfasts made to order, continental also. The...

Excellent costomer care, breakfast was alittle rested( hot stuff), no lift and water pressure on third floor was dissappointing. Great location, its at the posh end of Edinburgh and very close to bespoke shops and pubs.

Friendly staff, convenient and clean... our room looked out over the city and we had a panarama of the castle in the distance. Our second stay here and we will do again. It certainly does what it says on the tin.

I really like this hotel. Stayed twice so far and will come back soon. That is a promise! My day started with a nice cup of tea in my room, looking out the window, which due to the view felt like being in a movie. All followed by a great breakfast.

When lunch was served, a huge buffet with lots of choice of hot and cold food was served to the room. The vegan lunch...
