Reviewed 25 October 2009

A large Victorian house now hotel that will be hard to beat in Edinburgh. Located on a the bus line and just minutes from the towne center was the draw to the Newington neighborhood. I’m glad it did.
Rates are reasonable, the hostess and host Carole and Graham are naturally charming and assure a warm welcome for the traveler. The morning breakfast takes the title as “all around best” during my two weeks in Scotland. The stay here was for 7 nights, each day nicer than the last.
Every morning since arriving home I miss waking to the smell of breakfast cooking followed by Graham’s cheery “Good Morning”.

We have stayed at Brothaigh House frequently and have found the services to be exemplary. The hosts are absolutely marvelous and the breakfast was yummy! My only fault is that we couldn't stay any longer!

A warm and helpful host coupled with a convenient location made for a pleasant stay. Parking around the area which was mainly residential was on the street but we did not find it difficult to park closeby.

Leaflets about the tourist places placed at the entrance were very useful. So were the conversations with the host about getting around the place. The breakfast was sumptuous and well served. He even organised for a breakfast for our early flight.

For our family which included a toddler and an older child , there was not much space left for moving around after the spare single bed and a baby cot were provided. The bathroom would have been better with facility for a standup shower instead of just a bathtub with a hand shower. But these did not take away much from our happy stay.

  • Liked — Convenient location
  • Disliked — Shower in the bath
