"Excellent stay at friendly well sited hotel"

User 19/10/2020

The Bruntsfield Hotel is perfectly situated to allow easy access to all of Edinburgh. We particularly enjoyed being so close to the Meadows allowing for a lovely start in the mornings. Staff were all friendly and the breakfast was wonderful. I have stayed in several hotels in Edinburgh and this is the best of them!

NJA_7, London, United Kingdom 17/10/2020

We arrived at the hotel earlier than planned and as we had already checked in online every thing was ready and waiting for us. The hotel have done a good job around the social distancing insisting that face coverings are worn in all communal areas and screens up in the bar areas. We were given room 231, which is located on the 2nd floor. The room was very clean and of a really good size. The bed was really soft and comfortable, which aided a good nights sleep. The bathroom was pretty massive as well. The shower was ok, but the pressure wasn't that great. Our room had a great view of the castle. I would certain look at staying at this hotel next time I am in the area.

"Fabulous hotel. Lovely staff. Also very covid safe"

FM100, Seascale, United Kingdom 17/10/2020

I just stayed here one night while visiting the city for a dental appointment. It was my first overnight stay since the start of Covid so didn't know what to expect. From the moment I arrived I felt safe. I got a lovely warm welcome with Andrew. There were screens up at reception and hand gel. In the room (number 6, really beautiful, room at the front of the hotel),lots of covid measures were taken. All sanitized items were sealed in bags and labelled (hand sets etc). Antibac wipes were provided too. The cups were throw away ones, rather than reusable. I ate in the restaurant for my evening meal. Again, everything really well done. People very well spaced out. After guests left, all table/chair etc were thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant. Michael was running the restaurant, he was very friendly and welcoming. The food was good. Obviously because of the situation, there was a limited menu, but the food was good. There was no alcohol served due to the government restrictions, but it didn't matter. Check out (didn't get the lady who served me's name) was lovely. They kept my case for a few hours while I did some shopping. My advice to other travellers thinking of booking this hotel - book it! It is a safe and clean, and beautifully decorated hotel. The staff are wonderful, even though now times are exceptionally hard for hospitality. It is in a great part of city close to the centre.

jennifer m, troon 29/09/2020

This is a really nice hotel. It is really nicely situated opposite the Links ( a park area) and on the main street in Bruntsfield with great coffee shops and bars literally minutes walk. The rooms are not ultra modern but very pleasant and spotlessly clean. The lobby and reception and bar have been renovated and are quite stylish. We will definitely stay again.

ReidsonTour, Westhill, United Kingdom 25/09/2020

This hotel is situated in a lovely area of Edinburgh. It is close by to dozens of lovely shops, cafes and restaurants, and we spent a whole day browsing up one side all the way to Morningside and back down the other, stopping for coffee and cakes, a pre-lunch drink and then lunch along the way. The other direction and you are soon amongst the tourist sites. The hotel check in was friendly and quick. Our room was very clean and had all the facilities needed for a 3 night stay. The furniture was slightly dated but that didn't bother us. There was a huge bathroom. A good size TV was wall mounted. We enjoyed our breakfast every day - who can resist a cooked breakfast when you are on holiday ! It was delicious. They are doing a great job given the current limitations on hospitality provisions. The staff were all very friendly. We are returning for another stay soon .

Stayed at the Bruntsfield hotel for business, two night stay and excellent as usual, even during this very difficult time for hospitality the staff were excellent, my accommodation was fully sanitised and the hotel was spotless, parking on the hotel ground close to the city allowed me the flexibility to enjoy an evening walk. Thank you and am looking forward to booking again during my next trip to Edinburgh.

J4NOD, Morpeth, United Kingdom 13/09/2020

This hotel ticks all the right Covid boxes in terms of safety. We stayed Fri & Sat 11th Sept in a 4 poster room with breakfast. Breakfast was really good and had everything you could possibly want all served at your table and cooked fresh. The staff were all helpful and there for you when you needed them. I can't understand some of the negative comments on here from others as in times like these you have to make allowances for some thing such as not having your room cleaned etc.A great old lady of an hotel and we enjoyed or stay throughout. Being able to park your car in Edinburgh at the hotel is also a plus. We will definitely return and felt the price we paid was great value when you take into account that it included our breakfast.

Dykeneuk, Aberdeen, United Kingdom 12/09/2020

Stayed for two nights whilst we help move our son into a flat for university. We had two executive doubles with breakfast included , which were spacious and clean . Staff polite and helpful, especially when we asked for toilet roll as none in the bathroom on our arrival . Room was quiet, (142),an occasional noise from the corridor , otherwise it was peaceful . Breakfast was average , disappointed with sausages and mushrooms, otherwise the fresh fruit both mornings was lovely . Managed to get parking on both nights too. Overall we enjoyed our stay, will certainly be back as our son stays very near.

"Large comfortable room"

GailDsn, Maidstone, United Kingdom 12/09/2020

Stayed in an executive twin, a large room if rather old fashioned furniture and decor. However it was very quiet at the rear of the hotel, and bathroom looked more recently refurbished than room. Very comfortable beds, nice crisp white bed linen. Door had sticker seal to show no one had been in since it was cleaned. A pity about the hair in the bath. Otherwise very clean. Paper cups provided for tea/coffee and only two supplied even though we were there for two days. Had to ask at reception for more, and for some coffee as only decaffeinated in room. Also had to ask for more milk. We didn't have breakfast and restaurant was not open in evening. Such a shame as all other restaurants in area were very busy. The bar was open but empty, not doubt because everyone staying had to go elsewhere to eat. Should have taken advantage of the Eat Out to Help Out, and many places nearby have extended their offer. Very nice staff, friendly and helpful. I lived in this area many years ago, so this is why I chose the hotel for its location. Walkable to Old Town and Princes Street, although the buses are plentiful and cheap. Lovely cafes and restaurants nearby.

"This is how to run a hotel"

User 03/09/2020

We have just arrived back from a 5-day trip to Edinburgh, staying at the Bruntsfield Best Western Plus. This is a fabulous hotel which, even with the excellently managed constraints of Covid-19, retains its class. Spotlessly clean, attentive and well trained staff and superb hot breakfasts in a welcoming Scottish tradition. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon when you might expect to find a lull, but after parking our hire car in one of the hotel spaces we were shown our room with the minimum of fuss. We decided to take up the offer of an upgrade to a superior room. An understatement as it was actually a suite. 10 foot high curtains, dual aspect, separate dressing room area with desk etc, tasteful furnishings, giant bathroom with double shower and a double bath, smart tv, huge queen-size bed, robes and slippers etc. These are difficult times for hotels and if this excellent level of customer service is conducted during a pandemic, then normal service would allow the hotel even more opportunity to impress. The food is top notch, freshly cooked to order, quality ingredients, served piping hot with a smile. We met Alastair Bruce, the general manager - now there is a professional hotelier if ever we saw one - the staff clearly respect him and he certainly respects them. Big shout out to Angela on the desk and the lively, lovely lady who runs breakfasts. Loved Edinburgh, but equally loved the hotel. 10/10 and thanks to everyone

"Disappointing stay ,,,,"

User 02/09/2020

Having stayed here before we booked the hotel pre-covid to attend an event that was cancelled. We therefore paid top price. Our preference would have been to cancel the booking and reschedule for a longer stay at a later date but the hotel were within their rights not to agree . We therefore went for a short break. The executive room was adequate, and clean but the room was both warm and noisy in the early morning as refuse collection took place outside our window. There was no room service due to Covid, which we accept but it would have been nice to have been informed of this at check in. The hotel wi-fi did not work on the day of our arrival but worked satisfactorily on the subsequent two days Breakfast was poor. We were given the choice of two times. 8 am or 9:30 neither of which would have have been our first choice. From the breakfast menu the fruit bowl and fruit salad turned out to be the same thing. A plastic wrapped dish of prepackaged tasteless essentially tinned fruit. The granola my wife ordered appeared to be crumbled granola bars and was very poor. she could not eat it. Bread / toast was of cheap supermarket quality. Coffee was not very hot. The cooked breakfast was better but my fried egg was over-cooked and the tomato was undercooked. For a hotel of this quality some fresh fruit would have been expected. I have eaten better breakfasts at motorway service stations. For the record we were never asked whether we enjoyed our stay by the receptionist but I have filled in a subsequent marketing questionnaire by the hotel. The hotel location is good but we are unlikely to choose to stay here or any Best Western hotel again

Alistair Bruce, General Manager at Best Western Plus Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Bryanx123, On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologise for not exceeding your expectations. Your satisfaction is very important to us and I have used feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. I have replied, in detail, to your other feedback method earlier today but I can confirm that there were no reported issues with our wifi. At check in guests are informed about the online hotel directory which details changes to our operation for servicing rooms, room service, additional toiletries and breakfast times. We do not however insist that guests eat at 8am or 9.30am, this is the time that we are currently serving breakfast between. For your information I have amended the breakfast menu to offer a freshly made fruit salad and I will personally ensure that food and beverages are served as they should be. As you will see from pervious feedback our breakfast service is highly complimented and we do try our very best to fix any shortcomings when we are given the opportunity. Yours sincerely, Alistair Bruce General Manager

"Ok but not the friendliest hotel "

Sarahwhitenufc, Chertsey, United Kingdom 30/08/2020

We stayed here recently for three nights. We had a large room which for what we paid was excellent value. Staff on reception were not friendly and not helpful. Had to ask for an additional toilet roll as only half left in the room and it seemed to be an issue to give us another one. Also seemed unwilling to restock tea and coffee for the room. We requested a cot and on arrival was told we could have one as it was wood and not cv complaint. We eventually received one but the chap on reception was difficult and awkward to deal with. I thought the room was clean but decor is tired and needs some attention. Overall ok stay but don't think I would recommend to friends.

Alistair Bruce, General Manager at Best Western Plus Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Sarahwhitenufc, Thank you for your review of the Bruntsfield Hotel. I'm very surprised and sorry to read that you found my front desk unhelpful, as they are often complimented on how helpful they all are and how they bend over backwards to assist guests, especially with requests that are at the last minute. During these difficult times we operate rather differently which I do think we are all still getting used to. Its no problem at all to ask for additional items to be delivered to you room when they run out as my team are not allowed to enter you room after you arrive until you leave due to COVID regulations. Yours sincerely, Alistair Bruce General Manager

Stayed with husband and three grown up children for three nights. First impressions, very friendly staff and covid safe. Rooms were clean, comfy and spacious. One of our rooms was very large with a small off room and a massive bed, bath and separate walk in shower. There is a nice bar open in the evening but not for food, which was fine for us. We had a drink there before heading into the city centre, either a 20 min walk or a short bus ride. The number 11 bus runs every 10 minutes from just outside. Breakfast was very good every day and plentiful for our hungry teenage boys. The chap who served us in the bar in the evening deserves a mention, he was particularly friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend as a base for exploring Edinburgh.

I can't mark down to covid . The hotel was clean and rooms large . The staff were friendly and the hotel is in a nice location with a park opposite. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned and not entered again unless we requested . The only thing I would say is the hotel served a delicious cooked breakfast but the restaurant was not open in the evening so the bar was empty . I think they missed a trick as all the local restaurants were full in a relaxed way

A great hotel in an ideal location, close to everything but next to the park so a little quieter. A big selling point is the car park, which costs only £10 for the night. The room was well equipped, comfortable and clean. Cannot fault the staff, who were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would really recommend this hotel.

This isn't a flashy or boutique hotel- but it's a very attractive and comfortable hotel to stay in. Large rooms, comfortable beds, efficient and friendly staff and well thought out. We had everything we needed. Very reasonable price in a good location. The breakfast was everything you needed with a nice garden view. Minor niggles in the room - but nothing that would prevent me coming again. I definately would book again. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Beautiful Hotel, excellent service, delicious food. Opposite a Park. Perfect for me. Suitable for Business Travellers and Families too, or just the two of you. Everyone who serve you, serves you with a smile, is helpful and goes above and beyond.

The location is excellent, the prices are reasonable and breakfast menu is very good, so the hotel definitely has what you need. Especially as the rooms are quiet too. We had a lovely stay and can warmly recommend the hotel to others.

The manegment at this hotel are not very nice. I also advise anyone not to use BOOKING.COM as this caused me a lot of problems with this hotel. Due to my husband having an illness related to a heart condition I was not allowed to make changes to my booking. I lost quite a lot of money and it spoiled my trip to Edinborough. I will not grace the door of this place ever again.

Nicely appointed rooms which include an iHome with two USB ports and a wireless charging port on top. Room was clean and bathroom was well maintained. Front desk staff were friendly and efficient. Quiet surroundings as the hotel is away from the royal mile, but only a 20 minute walk to get there. Would definitely recommend!

Just back from my daughter's wedding at the Bruntsfield Hotel, Edinburgh and if you are looking for a venue don't hesitate to book this one. The hotel is beautiful, the food is delicious, the rooms cosy and comfortable with a choice of pillows, the staff are AMAZING and all at quite an affordable price. I will certainly be visiting again just for the experience at every opportunity.

walkmanFife, Cupar, United Kingdom 15/01/2020

Stayed here one night in January while working in Edinburgh. I used to live in this part of Edinburgh as a student 40 odd years ago and there was a little snug bar at the side that was our local. It's long gone, but the hotel itself, which I'd never stayed in before, seems to have gone from strength to strength. Nothing not to like about this stay for me. I was given a large room with period features at the front, with a big three part window looking over Bruntsfield Links. The would have been great but unfortunately it was dark all the time I was there. There was another room attached with bunk beds and a second TV, wardrobe and the dreaded trouser press and off it was the en-suite bathroom. This would obviously be great as a family room. The room itself was great, plenty of space for a massive bed, desk and chair and couple of bucket seats and a coffee table. There was also everything you would need including a hairdryer and an ironing board and table in case you don't trust that trouser press... The double glazing and heavy curtains meant there was little traffic noise and I slept reasonably well. Ate in the Bisque bar in the evening and found the service good and the food decent and reasonably priced. There's also plenty of different types of restaurant in the immediate area. Breakfast was also good with the usual buffet and the usual cooked options. No smoked haddock and poached egg which is my personal favourite, but plenty of other choices so can't complain. Staff that I met were all great. For anyone that doesn't know Edinburgh, Bruntsfield is a great area to stay in. It's trendy and elegant and has its own community feel, with great shops, restaurants and pubs and some great open space in the Links and nearby Meadows. It's also great for the city centre with plenty of good bus services, though you can walk to the city centre in maybe about 25 minutes and Haymarket station in about 20. Overall, really enjoyed my short stay and would return without hesitation.

Richard G, Ipswich, United Kingdom 07/01/2020

Very comfortable hotel in a quiet and elegant part of the city. Exec Room was large and comfortable, bed was excellent, very good shower. Restaurant food was excellent with very friendly staff and breakfast choice was massive. We thought it was good value for money. Not posh but very comfortable feel to it. Room was very warm so we had to turn the heater off and open the windows to make it more comfortable even in January as it was mild weather. No air con so might be hot in summer so they provide fans. The location is 20 mins walk to the city so not too far and close to the The Meadows park. Bruntsfield Place itself has plenty of restaurants and bars and local shops which was a nice option in the evening. Within 10 mins walk there are bistros, Italian, European, Chinese, Indian restaurants walking away from the city centre.

TellitlikeitisDMc, Stirling, United Kingdom 05/01/2020

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. Although it is listed as a city centre hotel, it is just slightly outside what I would term as city centre. Parking is a bit tight, and that is about the only down side to this hotel. The staff are great, cleanliness is excellent, the rooms comfortable and well equipped, and the Full Scottish Breakfast is terrific! We stayed in a Superior Room on a bed and breakfast basis, and will obviously consider using the hotel again next time we visit Edinburgh!

Marita h, Braintree, United Kingdom 03/01/2020

We stayed here as a group of 6 friends to celebrate hogmanay. The hotel is around a 20 minute walk from Edinburgh Old Town, and it is a lovely stroll. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We also had a lovely view of the city from our room The bathrooms probably need an upgrade. The shower was an 'in the bath' shower, with the shower head at a fixed point, which meant you have to stand almost on top of the taps to wash. The water temperature was very erratic and frequently went from boiling hot to freezing cold. The room could have benefitted from a mini bar and room service Breakfast wasn't included but we did eat once at the hotel and it was perfectly adequate. Not sure if I would recommend this hotel or return. Although we did have an excellent time in Edinburgh celebrating hogmanay.

Very disappointed with the vegetarian option. Prawn cocktail served in a knickerbocker glory glass so sauce all at bottom. Veggie Wellington looked liked a steak bake from Greggs smeared in mint sauce and couldnt cut it!! Orange n chocolate mouse was like eating the skin of an orange very bitter Like last year I had to ask twice if they were serving tea and colleague had to ask them to bring out the mince pies, half an hour after tea and coffee was served. Disappointed as we were there last year and it was okay Ps. Are your bar staff asked to ask if you want doubles every-time you venture to the bar?

lencass, Workington, United Kingdom 13/12/2019

Second visit in a month after having a less than perfect stay last time, i was however willing to give a second chance as previous visits have been fine. Big mistake. Currently sitting here at midnight unable to sleep due to function directly below me, not a single word of warning from reception staff on booking in, had i been given warning i would have asked for room change, had this not been an option then i would have simply moved hotels. I appreciate that hotels generate large income in festive season but it appears this overides the need to give paying guests a good nights sleep which is the reason i am in a hotel room. General Manager indicated that he would seek me out on this visit to discuss problems from last visit, not a sight of him. I spend large ammounts of hard earned money staying in Best Western, no longer. Makes a mockery of awarding Diamond Select as a valued customer. I would point out that young barman was a pleasure to deal with.

Often passed on frequent Edinburgh visits but treated ourselves to 3 nights. Only chose breakfast on final morning. Big mistake! Great value at £10pp. Lovely tastefully decorated spacious room. Wide range of food. Piping hot coffee, fresh bread from the oven and best haggis tasted to date. Service very friendly and the lady i/c, without prompting, brought over the toast when the first batch was exhausted. Our standard room was also spacious. Good range of toiletries. Very quiet despite overlooking road by The Meadows and extremely comfortable mattress. A defective table lamp was speedily replaced and the large tv and comfortable chairs allow full relaxation. Also a bath. All staff both friendly and very helpful. On deals this hotel is great value

We arrived on Tuesday 19th November to a full car park and nowhere to park. We went and asked at reception and were told that just outside the hotel we could park for free from 6.30pm - 8.00am the next day, which was great for us. Check in for both of us was simple and within a few minutes were in our rooms. We ventured into the city centre in the evening and to the xmas markets, which took us about 15 minutes and was a nice easy stroll. The rooms were large, had tea/coffee facilities, safe, toiletries, tv and plenty of towels. Bed was comfortable and slept well til 4am when I was woken by traffic noise (was at the front of the hotel). We had breakfast, which was cooked to order and helped ourselves to the continental selection. Good quality cooked breakfast, which wasn't too over facing and set us up for the morning. Check out only took a minute, professional and friendly staff and as it was just starting to come light, had a lovely view over the park.

Kenny-kkmagic, kilmarnock 26/11/2019

Stayed for three nights in November and loved the hotel. All of the staff members whom we dealt with were friendly and helpful especially the lady who was on the reception desk (I didn't catch her name). We had arrived early, before our room was ready (room 213) however she took all our details, issued me with the carpark permit - yes we managed to get a space - and we went for a coffee whilst we waited on the room being serviced. The room was big and spacious and we had no complaints. Bed was very comfortable and we both slept well. One thing that other hotels could learn from here is - a free safe !!! Most hotels charge extra for an “in room safe” but this one was included as part of the tariff. We stayed bed and breakfast but didn't try the restaurant in the evening, maybe next time. Breakfast was plentiful and well presented with the hot breakfast “cooked to order” and brought to the table. Delicious !!! Approximately 20 minutes walk took you to the foot of Princess Street so the hotel is not too far away from the biz. On one occasion we came back through the parks - I bet it's lovely in the summer. Whilst in town we saw the Christmas lights being switched on (with Santa's sleigh high above the crowds) and also the opening of the Christmas markets. Looking forward to returning sometime in the future !!!!

Great hotel, slightly out of the centre but we quite like that. Lovely staff, great bar & breakfast is excellent. Car park is small & tight but we've always found a space.

We visited this hotel for a short stay in Edinburgh. This hotel was attractive as it said free parking. On arrival at 11.30am we discovered there were about 20 spaces which were all full so had to park in a multi story which was half a mile away which was disapointing. The staff were very polite and helpful and the hotel overall appeared clean and well kept. Our room was rather dated but was large and had a great view of the castle. I would concider this hotel again but may look for one a little closer to the centre without a car park as we couldnt park near the hotel anyway.

I've stayed in a number of hotels in Edinburgh, including a couple of 5 star properties. While the Bruntsfield is not a 5 star hotel – no turndown service, no chocolates on the pillows, no concierge on duty, etc. – I found this hotel to be a very attractive property. The rooms were large and modern and the bathrooms were completely up-to-date with contemporary plumbing. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location, while not in the city center, is in convenient walking distance of Princes Street, with many local merchants on the streets nearby. On my last night I had dinner at the hotel and found the food to be surprisingly good, at a very reasonable price. All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the Bruntsfield and will stay there on my next trip to Edinburgh.

Stayed for 3nights for my daughters graduation at the cutlers hall, which was a 10 min walk away. Rooms clean and warm, even though no heating apparent. Bathroom and shower ok, although the bath had a fair bit of flex in it when having a shower.All in all a pleasant stay, breakfast was excellent and the selection was good. Would stay again, well placed for walking distance to the attractions.

"Great quieter location, yet close to attractions and local restaurants, nice rooms"

Brian E, Lakeville, Minnesota 15/11/2019

We stayed for one week in October 2019 and give a strong recommendation for these reasons: 1)Location - quieter than the castle area yet quick to get there by convenient bus or walk, also preferred the large park across the street 2)Building- very nice room with space and excellent bathroom layout, comfortable king bed 3)People- spoke with the front desk times for good tourist ideas, very helpful, and arranged for cab to return back to airport at 3AM. Remember if paying with any cash you need to do it the night before, and NO issues paying with credit card any time. We knew the process so worked great. 4)Excellent restaurant as we paid a fair price for breakfast inclusion and it was excellent with made to order and buffet. We also ate dinner there twice- best salmon I have likely had in my life based on the prep and side dishes, so thats why we ate there multiple times. Staff was very good with help and proper courtesy- very easy to talk with and the general manager even made the time to talk with us and was cordial and professional. A final comment on location- using the bus or a longer walk it was easy to get to the train station for two day trips and Highland bus tour area. Would recommend returning again this hotel- the taxi ride to and from the airport were reasonable time and again we liked not being in the very busiest area of the city

David R, East Sussex, United Kingdom 13/11/2019

We spent 4 nights at this fabulous hotel for a winter break and to celebrate my wife's birthday. From our arrival to checking out our stay was perfect. All the staff were friendly and our room was immaculate. The personal touch was greatly appreciated with a birthday card for my wife. We had breakfast every morning which was perfectly cooked. We also had dinner on two nights which was delicious. A nice walk into the city across the park with the autumn colours still evident took between 20 -25 minutes. Edinburgh is such a beautiful city which we have only started to explore. When we return we will certainly love to stay here again.

"Great Location"

Caroline H, Hertfordshire 13/11/2019

The hotel is in a very leafy part of Edinburgh, very scenic and across the road from the park. The car park is very cramped and the spaces are small, so just be warned. We were lucky on arrival and managed to grab the last parking spot, so it could be an issue for some? I had booked an Executive Double for a wee treat and the first room we were offered 335, we had to refuse as it smelt terribly of damp, with black mould growing round the window frame. This room should never have been offered to guests, hopefully it has now been rectified and cleaned. They had left the window open in an attempt to get rid of the smell, all to no avail. It was very shabby round the edges, dirty wallpaper and had a very tatty, worn out sofa in the room, that had seen much better days. I immediately went to reception to ask that we moved rooms. The young man on reception was very obliging, he never moaned, just found us another Executive Double to move to. It was so much fresher and cleaner, room no. 35. Breakfast was very good indeed. You have a help yourself selection and you can also pick from a long list of items from the menu, where your breakfast is cooked to order. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and attentive. Good to be a Best Western member as you get a small discount. It is about a 20 mins stroll into the city centre.

User 12/11/2019

I booked this hotel for my mums 80th birthday, from the first phone call to check if they had a room which would suit my mums mobility needs, to the fantastic breakfast -including options for gluten free and vegan, the staff made sure we had everything we needed. The room was spacious and spotless, with a huge bathroom. We both slept really well, the breakfast buffet and hot options were extensive and would suit every need. We were able to leave our bags following checkout, until we needed to collect them before our train departed. I can't praise the staff highly enough, the reception staff in particular were friendly, professional and went out of their way to make us feel special. All in all it was a wonderful birthday experience for my mum, and we can't wait to return!

"A nice hotel, away from the hustle and bustle with lovely staff."

User 05/11/2019

An overall pleasant stay here for our trip from London to Edinburgh. We were here for 2 nights and were satisfied with the stay. The location is about a 20/30 minute walk or so from the royal mile, depending on which route you take. This meant you were far enough away from the hustle and bustle but if you're not an avid walker, maybe a closer location or public transport is for you. Parking is advertised as available but limited. It is very limited. We couldn't find a space on arrival so needed to park down a side road for our stay. We were told to move our car to a space as soon as one became available, but one didn't. The staff were all very friendly, accommodating and helpful. It was very refreshing and welcoming for us “first timers” The breakfast was nice on both mornings. A lovely menu to select hot food from to order and then a buffet style for cold items. A good selection for both and some quintessentially Scottish items available. The hotel at booking double charged me by mistake which was an expensive blip but they reimbursed me for this and we did get an upgrade to a larger room when I asked for some sort of gesture for the inconvenience. The room was pleasant, traditional, albeit slightly on the tired side which didn't feel like the rest of the hotel. But that was fine. It had a large bathroom and the shower was very good. And all the amenities as expected. It was a very very warm room I must say, I turned the heater off and opened the window for our whole visit, we even slept with the fan on which we weren't expecting in November Edinburgh. It wasn't unbearably hot but if you feel the cold and like to be warm this one is for you! We had quite a nice distant view of the castle. The bed was huge and the mattress comfortable. The pillows weren't our cup of tea but that was personal choice. There were a couple more in the wardrobe but they were more of the same. In the night I thought I could hear someone in our bathroom which turned out to be upstairs. So that was surprisingly loud, and the door onto the corridor didn't do much for soundproofing as we heard many comings and goings in the night. Overall we had a pleasant day, and it was what we needed for a short break in the city. Just a couple of minor bits that could've been improved.

Hampus S, Gothenburg, Sweden 04/11/2019

The location is excellent, with a fifteen minute walk to the city centre. The hotel also provided parking, which was easily accessible. I arrived early, but was allowed to check in and leave my car in the car park anyway. The room was nice enough, with good internet and comfortable beds. However, something must be done about the doors into the neighbouring rooms. Even though my neighbours weren't particularly loud, noise travelled freely into my room. I had an early flight and the noise made it difficult to sleep. The breakfast was very nice, with a wide spread of options ranging from a full Scottish to coffee and croissants. Everything was well prepared. The staff were all friendly and accommodating.

dsd68, London, United Kingdom 28/10/2019

We stayed overnight as there was a good 'winter' deal which included breakfast. The staff were friendly and efficient, the room was comfortable with lovely ensuite bath and the breakfast was very good indeed, well served, no long waiting, yet neither did we feel rushed. A wonderful choice, well laid out in a very pleasantly situated restaurant. Certainly the best hotel experience we've had in Edinburgh, and as good as any that we've had anywhere. We've no idea what other amenities are offered by the hotel as we just had an overnight stay, but for our purpose, visiting friends in Edinburgh it was ideal. Although I've described it as a budget hotel, that simply reflects the price we paid. The accommodation, service and food was as good or better than many much more expensive places that we've stayed in.

We explored Edinburgh on the Wednesday and had a brilliant day cramming lots of sightseeing in ie. Castle, gallery, museum and many others. We ate in the restaurant on the evening and the meal was delicious. The staff throughout the hotel were so kind and helpfull will definately be returning.

Hotel located in a quiet neighbourhood, but at a walking distance to major attractions. Straightforward check-in and no hassles with our reservation. Our room, 202, was OK, clean and cozy, but certainly in need of renovations. The floor is uneven and very creaky, the carpet needs reno as well. Bathroom was clean, but it also has a creaky floor. Staff were pleasant and very helpful. The area has some good restaurants, taxis were readily available when we needed them. Public transport was apparently available, but we didn't use any, since we preferred to walk. Breakfast was of good quality and plentiful; reasonably priced, too. We recommend this hotel.

I travel away in business a lot and this is one of my absolute favourites. Firstly it has free parking which is unusual in Edinburgh. The reception area is bright , welcoming and the reception staff very welcoming. The rooms are comfortable with some nice little touches throughout. The restaurant serves some lovely dishes , personally I can't get enough of the chicken and haggis dish ! Location is perfect just 10 minutes walk downhill to the tourist part of this city . Can't wait to stay again in December!

"Decent hotel let down by breakfast staff"

3
User 18/10/2019

Usually stay at BW in Edinburgh but this was first time at Bruntsfield Overall impressions were favourable - as its an old style Edinburgh terrace rooms are large and have high ceilings and are exceptionally clean and well appointed although I would question the need to have all windows wide open on an autumnal afternoon in Edinburgh - room VERY cold on arrival and heating system incomprehensible (although made it work) Also ate dinner in the hotel and food was excellent and served with genuine warmth and a smile. Decent menu I opted for steak pie although it was really stew with a tiny piece of pastry thrown on top prior to serving which is not ideal, but everythiny tasted good What let the hotel down (and why I rated it as average rather than very good) was the breakfast service. I was there early and only 3 tables were occupied and there appeared to be 3 staff, 1 of whom skulked in the corridor, the other 2 too busy chatting to each other to worry about diners After 20 mins no one took my order so I returned to entrance and asked if they could possibly interrupt their important conversations to take my order and was met with rudeness and couldn't care less attitude And if you want tea, rather than coffee, you can get a t bag at the coffee station but no hot water - this has to be ordered. Waiter told me to help myself to cold water and seemed surprised that for tea I wanted it hot! Very disappointing and absolutely let the hotel down (I did advise duty manager of this experience) I hope it's not typical as generally hotel is of high standard and is in great location

We stayed for two nights and wondered why we had ever stayed anywhere else on prior trips. My room was fabulous! I had a superior room, super spacious with a comfortable bed and awesome beekind bathroom products. The deputy manager, Ian, treated us so well. We hung out in the bar both nights after one day of walking the city and another after a long day trip. Ian is fascinating and shared some stories with us, Dougie, the bartender, gave my brother in law a lesson on Scottish whisky and Jenny did the front desk staff proud and was a joy to deal with. Both days we had breakfast which was just right! We did have a casual dinner one night which was very good as well. Next time I visit, will for sure stay here again. You can get to the Royal Mile in no time by foot as well as hop a bus close by if you prefer and the staff goes above and beyond. Thanks for a great time!

We have a family room which I got for same price as the double room. No character in the room,not very well decorated. Bit boring Think some rooms have been refurbished but not ours.

User 20/09/2019

toilet was not flushed when I arrived. Suspicious brown stain near toilet roll holder. unidentifiable marks on the sheet. Front of desk staff were disinterested in my complaints. Due to repair works I was moved to another room- I had to wait till 3pm to go into my room, despite being a current guest. They forgot to make up the room so I was then moved to another room!. This room was above the awning which had giant spot lights- hence the room was flood lit most of the night with only a flimsy roman blind at the window. This was like a carry-on film. DO NOT use this hotel. Right now staying at the Black Ivy hotel down the road and it is a DELIGHT

I booked a dining room (Cardoon Suite) at the Bruntsfield for a celebratory evening, starting with drinks and then a three-course meal. The arrangements beforehand were handled very efficiently, including detailed discussions about exactly what was required. On the night, the service was first-rate, with a full complement of staff on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. The food was excellent, with guests making many enthusiastic comments. There was even praise for the house wine. All in all, a top quality service.

"Wonderful Stay (Again!)"

mejulaca, Seattle, Washington 18/09/2019

We've stayed at this wonderful hotel three times in the past eight years. While it's an older, charming building, it is well-maintained and modern. Check-in was quite pleasant, helpful, and efficient. Part of the charm of this hotel is the unique placement of rooms and hallways. Not your standard straight hallways, but some twists and turns which only add to the wonderful atmosphere. We had a suite with a few different rooms and loved it! The bedroom portion of the suite was very large and roomy. Bed very comfortable! Desk area and additional chairs, too. The bathroom was huge, almost as big as some hotel rooms we've stayed in. When you first walk in, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful, large standing tub in the middle of the floor. There was also a large counter area with double sinks, and wood shelves for storage of personal items on both sides. There was an additional small, separate toilet/shower room with a frosted glass door on the shower for privacy. The room also had a walk-in closet area with more shelving, plus a beverage area at one end that had tea and hot chocolate supplies. A full-length mirror was also on the wall. We ate dinner at the restaurant and also had the buffet breakfast the following morning. Excellent food and great service! We had a car with us, and there is parking available. The spots are tight and can be difficult to maneuver into. The lot isn't plentiful with availability, so if you do manage to get a spot, it is best to leave your car there and just walk into the historic center for touring (perhaps 20-25 min walk, not bad at all). We were delighted to find that this hotel has maintained its quality of service over the years and it's a place we intend to return to when we visit Scotland again.

Great location for exploring Edinburgh! We walked everywhere from here! Hotel was very comfortable, and friendly staff. Minor drawback as there was not an outlet for the hair dryer in the bathroom, but rooms were nice and comfy.

Dicksons, Peebles, Scotland. 13/09/2019

We have stayed here before and were always fond of this old hotel - which did have the usual old hotel issues! However, location is fantastic with the city centre walkable. We are very impressed with the refurbishment - bringing the old lady up to date but without removing the charm. The room we stayed in was excellent , general hotel ambience lovely and staff very helpfull. Well done to the team with the hotel now punching well above its weight.

"Wonderful Hotel!"

patm0634, Altrincham, United Kingdom 05/09/2019

We spent a four day holiday during The Edinburgh Festival at The Bruntsfield Hotel, where once again we enjoyed a wonderful welcome and attention from the staff during our stay. It was my wife's birthday, during our visit and a surprise tray of fruit and chocolates was sent to our room, which was a very thoughtful touch. The bedroom we were allocated had been recently tastefully modernised with comfort, cleanliness and security to the usual Bruntsfield high standard. The reception staff went out of their way to be cheerful and helpful (Alistair, The Manager, assisted us - 75+ year olds - by taking our luggage to our room). The breakfast was of the usual high standard, offering a wide ranging choice of food and beverages. Most evenings, we had dinner in the restaurant, or bar and thoroughly enjoyed the selection of meals available, served by very happy, friendly and helpful waiters and waitresses. All in all, The Bruntsfield is a wonderful hotel to choose for a stay in Edinburgh. It is a twenty minute walk to the city centre, but there is also the option of a regular bus service from very close to the hotel.

"Another enjoyable stay at The Bruntsfield"

DunEdinAG, Aberfeldy, United Kingdom 04/09/2019

We've stayed a few times here over the years and returned this week after a couple of years since our previous stay. The location is great, it's always had a parking space free, which is really handy and we always have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. On this visit, we booked a superior double (room 124, street facing), which was huge. It had a separate seating area (albeit without a TV), good sized bedroom area (with a very comfortable bed) also with seating and a very large bathroom with bath, separate shower (which was a little noisy in operation), double sinks and plenty of storage space for toiletries, which saved the usual balancing the contents of our wash bags delicately around a sink. For us, space is luxury so we were happy to trade having this size of room with it's decor being a little bit dated compared with some of the more recently modernised rooms shown on the website. We've eaten and enjoyed dinner at the hotel before so this time we ate out nearby and only had breakfast in the restaurant. It has a contemporary feel and overlooks a nice garden area. Our cooked breakfast order had a couple of things that slightly disappointed (an undercooked 'peelly wally' potato scone and an overcooked fried egg) but was otherwise good. In contrast with many hotels, there was a very good and extensive continental selection, possibly the best we've seen in the last year. Also, if you book breakfast at the time of booking your room, it's very good value overall. Finally, the staff were as lovely and friendly as always. Nothing was a bother and you rightly felt like you were talking to human beings with common sense rather than robots that treat you like a number. We don't come to Edinburgh often but for lots of reasons The Bruntsfield will always be a strong contender when we do.

"Perfect stay with friendly service"

144andreah, England, United Kingdom 04/09/2019

We've stayed here for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. We were very happy. The Hotel is modern and clean, Stuff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast has been good. You can order your hot breakfast freshly done for you. You walk about 30 minutes to the castle which is ok and we felt safe to do so. We were told there are busses running as well if you prefer. I can recommend this hotel very much.

"Good quality"

MlbTraveller2018, Noosa, Australia 03/09/2019

One of the many corporate hotels our firm uses in Edinburgh. Large room with separate area with double seared lounge and table. Very comfortable king sized bed. Bath tub in bathroom. Clean. My room had large windows overlooking the street. There is no air-conditioning so in summer you'd need to open these to get cool air. Restaurant in basement. Safe in room. I think this room would be fine for private travel but not ideal for business. No bottled water supplied although you can purchase it from the bar downstairs. For business travel, I am looking for an air-conditioned room and water supplied. Free wi-fi. Very friendly service.

"Handy for the Festival"

User 28/08/2019

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of the Fringe festival. The hotel is fine, good comfy bed, great breakfast that kept us happy till late afternoon. Staff at reception were friendly and knew where we could go and find what we were looking for. Close to bus stops and places to eat. Nice central hotel.

"Convenient location "

LCNM19, Lowestoft, United Kingdom 27/08/2019

We arrived early to check on our rooms as we would be checking in late. All paperwork sorted quickly and rooms as arranged on the phone. The receptionist was helpful. The parking is very limited and difficult. On Sunday you can park outside on the road. There is no parking for the disabled. On arriving back later, we accessed via the bar which has level access. We tried to order a drink. It seemed the info saying the bar opened to late was not true. With bar closing at 10.30 even to residents. We eventually did get a drink and our room keys. We booked one access for mobility impaired. It was spacious, comfortable and the bath was accessible. The shower had no support (seems easy to have added). This was made clear when I booked. My room was next door and also comfortable. Everything worked in rooms. The decoration was dated but good rooms. The breakfast is downstairs in a lovely room. Accessible by lift. The breakfast bar was very well stocked with great fruits, cheeses, hams, cereals, breads. The cooked breakfast was lovely and service was great.

"Wish we had been able to stay longer"

Petalle, Midlands, England 23/08/2019

We only had an overnight stop here but would happily have stayed longer. The hotel is really well situated opposite a park and not far from the main town centre, perhaps a 15/20 minute walk. It's an impressive building and although we had worried about parking we didn't have any problems. All of the staff were really friendly and welcoming, and helpful with questions about the area. We were given a room upgrade and it was very pleasant. We only had a small window but with a great view of the castle. It was clean and comfortable. We had dinner at the hotel which we both enjoyed, and there are several vegan/vegetarian options. It was hard to choose. Breakfast in the conservatory was also really pleasant with excellent choices. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would certainly recommend.

"Reasonable and familiar find in Edinburgh"

Roseanna K, Chico, California 20/08/2019

I was happy to find this Best Western. It is on two bus lines and was a good launching point for other areas of the city. Other bus lines are just a few blocks away including one to and from the airport. The neighborhood around the hotel has plenty of good restaurants and pubs including the historic Brennaman's. The area known as Tollcross is just about a 10 minute walk and is loaded with other options and a theater venue which I attended a performance during the Fringe Festival. The breakfast could be added for 10Euro, but after one morning I realized that better fare was just a block or two away and ate at other establishments. The food at the hotel was mediocre. I did not go during the evening meal. I would stay at this BW again. Very reasonably priced.

Very friendly helpful staff. Fantastic breakfast! and pleasant front of house surroundings. Housekeeping could be improved-cleanliness in bathroom wasn't great, sheets didn't seem to fit the bed and accommodation is in need of a refurbish. It's a shame as this lets the rest of it down. Ordered a taxi to station via reception and it was very costly compared to others we had taken

- there is limited parking and the spaces are tight. - it is quite a walk into the old town - about 40 mins. - the bathroom was very impressive! - the room was incredibly clean (and I am very picky!) The room is cleaner than most 5* hotels I've stayed in. - the bed was too hard and the pillows to full for me (but this is personal taste and might suit most people - I did not ask if there was a pillow menu, but I would ask next time) - the breakfast is amazing - the staff are brilliant! Very warm, welcoming and efficient. Overall, I am impressed how clean and comfortable I feel here, despite the bed. I would definitely consider staying here and in a Best Western again. Well worth the money for me.

"Not at all what was expected"

EmanuelleMontreal, Montreal, Canada 11/08/2019

Just arrrived today from London for a 6 nights stay. The room is small with outdated furniture, floor not even, carpet is dirty, shower curtain smells like hell, no mini bar, no water, no nothing. Apparently it is a non smoking room but It was probably no too long ago because it is not smelling good. I asked to change room as it was now at all what was expected. Reserved with Expedia, they told me that they will look at my demand tomorrow for a room change as they were totally booked for the night. Other than the room and the facilities I must say that so far the staff has been polite and very nice with me ... As for the location I could not speak abou it as I will experience it most probably tomorrow... more to come

ThelmaandLouise50, Colchester 05/08/2019

This hotel is situated in a lovely location opposite a park and within a twenty minute pleasant walk of the city centre. Also very near a bus route. The hotel itself is clean and spacious . Our room was a good size but very hot , this was not helped by the duvet being of winter weight. Two fans were provided which helped but the building does seem to retain the heat. The hot room was our only complaint. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were all very efficient and friendly. It was also good to see a manager in evidence as so many hotels are chaotic with no one in charge. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Edinburgh and hope to visit again one day but perhaps not when there is a heatwave!

The hotel is well located, nice walk through the park area to central Edinburgh. Friendly helpful reception staff. Good breakfast. The restaurant is downstairs, in the basement area with restricted views, but so many other places to eat in Edinburgh. Our room was okay, but it had a fairly small window and we visited in a hot period. Hotel parking is very restricted, so get there early.

A lovely part of Edinburgh to stay away from the busy city yet very accessible to key places of interest by bus or walking. Very helpful staff; room was comfortable but no robes or fridge was unfortunate. No aircon but the fan provided was helpful. Close to cafes, restaurants, shops and supermarket. We ate at the restaurant - service and food were good.

Grant P, Manukau, New Zealand 28/07/2019

The hotel is quite well positioned and is close to the city centre with eating options nearby. It is on the main bus route and transport is easy. We had a nice room with a four poster bed in it but there was no air conditioning - we could open the windows though. The duvet was too hot to use and we had to remove the inner and use the duvet cover as a top sheet. The reception area is small and there is no tour desk or concierge as such - the receptionist helps out with anything you might want to know. We ate one dinner at the hotel's restaurant but it wasn't anything startling - I have had several fish & chip meals while in England and Scotland and this was the least impressive one. It was a wet night so stayed in, it is OK and does the job. The bar had a nice selection of beers and whisky's. We ate at a nearby Thai restaurant the other night and that was good. Would recommend staying here but maybe dine elsewhere depending on your requirements.

I stayed here and thought it to be a wonderful value: highly affordable; wonderfully located just enough past old town to avoid the crush of tourists and cheap shops, but close enough to walk there; excellent breakfast; lovely rooms. I've stayed there twice and you can't go wrong. One of the highlights is its staff: they're all great, but Jenny went out of her way for us. Across from a lovely park and within walking distance of great restaurants, pubs, and stores.

Well, staying here is helping us get over being sad at leaving Scotland. At least we'll return to our home, where it's clean and everything works. The bathroom smells unclean, the front desk explicitly told us my email address was for WiFi access and not SPAM (I should have known better when they handwrote the WiFi code out... and I did immediately receive SPAM from BW!) The front desk also gave me attitude when I asked for the WiFi password after my husband had (because neither of us could read what they had written down). And the room safe doesn't work. Even after they came up and “fixed” it. It apparently works once... and then you can't use it again until they “fix” it.

A_Bruce50, General Manager at Best Western Plus Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Pangaean, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent visit to the Bruntsfield Hotel. We are very sorry that you experienced some issue whilst you stayed with us and we are disappointed to receive only 1 star. I shall certainly highlight your comments with my team and ensure that we address the points you mention. I do understand that the fault with the room safe was fixed whilst you were here with us, I appreciate the first fix didn't work but subsequently it rectified. Once you gained the WiFi code you should have only received one email from Best Western, do let me know if you receive any other unwelcome emails and my housekeeping team have checked the room for any unusual odours, which I am glad to report was not noticeable today. We do strive to make all our guests visits fault free and I hope that should you ever return to Edinburgh that you get in touch with me and I will personally ensure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay with us.

AzKevinC, Phoenix, Arizona 06/07/2019

Just across the street from the Meadows park. About a mile away from Holyrood Park. We walked from the hotel to Holyrood. Stopped by the Palace. Then down the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle. It made for a great day. The hotel is clean. The staff is wonderful: quick to recommend a nice restaurant or activity. Great overall. CONS: 1) I picked this hotel partly for free parking. But they have ~20 spaces total. First come, first served. 2) they need to renumber their rooms. A sign lists rooms 100 - 140 to the right. But a few odd numbered rooms are at the other end of the hotel. Really, just move the numbers around so a logical person can find their room.

"Great hotel but a little to far to walk from town"

Ducknzzz, Melbourne, Australia 06/07/2019

We arrived at the hotel for a Two-day stay. The parking was an issue. Very tight and limited off-street parking, the Wifi was good, the rooms were a little tatty around the edges but were very clean. The location was just a little too far to walk to town and around, by the end of the day being a tourist, you will be exhausted. restaurant around the hotel is very limited. We found an Indian restaurant about 20 minutes walk away, that was great. Downstairs is an overpriced restaurant. other then this the Staff were great.

"Superb- Best Hotel"

Stayed at the start and end of a bus tour. Firstly the location is excellent. The lobby is modern and the staff friendly. First room faced street with nice view but was not updated. So much furniture in the room that I couldn't wheel my carry on size suitcase between the bed and tv stand. Why so much furniture? Decided to not rate a review until my second stay as had not been to UK in a few years— maybe it was just me. Mattress seemed pyramid shaped with the firmest part in the middle and weak sides so it felt like you might fall off. Stayed at 3 other hotel b and bs during my economically booked bus tour and all were better than this room. I almost considered rebooking as I didn't need a centrally located room for the end of my trip— just was trying to make the planning process easier At end of tour got an updated room. Much more space, comfy bed. Could wheel my tiny luggage all around and even had a place to set it down! Bathroom didn't look like it was falling apart. Hard to find an extra outlet for anything— and I only needed one.

RDHiscott, Lion's Head, Canada 23/06/2019

Spent 4 nights (June 9-12) at this great hotel while on a tour of Scotland. Single room was a good size, clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Room safe is available, excellent wifi connectivity, decent-sized flat-screen TV included. I was very pleased with this hotel – much better than most. There was also a very decent restaurant (Bisque) downstairs which was convenient and offered very nice meals. Located in the trendy, upscale Bruntsfield district of Edinburgh, with a nice park across the street and surrounded by traditional Edinburgh architecture for very pleasant walks! Great hotel to come back to after busy days touring the sites of Edinburgh and region! Highly recommend!

hairs in bath, dust under bed, night porter rude terrible personnel hygiene and a bit creepy to be honest, staff lazy scruffy and rude, looking closer to furnishings you'll find dirt and dust, bar was incredibly dirty and chairs were so mucky I had to bath as soon as I could, had problems with my key, and the food hygiene was a zero! Duty manager perved over us making us very uncomfortable wich I will be taking the matter further toilets look clean but on close inspection thilthy, I would never step foot in this place again lovely building and the decor is warm and bright that's it nothing else change the management the staff and scrub the whole place from top to bottom maybe consider it!

Last stayed here many years ago. What a difference - the Hotel has been very tastefully modernised. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The modern dining room has outside seating. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice. The staff were all well trained and genuinely welcoming and friendly. Will certainly stay again. There are a lot of interesting shops, restaurants and cafes nearby as well as lots of parkland.

drkiki2015, Washougal, Washington 02/06/2019

Last year we rented a flat in the neighborhood for a 4 month work stay. This year, we only had 6 nights but wanted to stay in the neighborhood so chose this hotel. It was just about perfect--large, stylish room with recently refurbished bathroom, great shower, comfy bed, and the very same view we had from our flat last year--brought back great memories! The breakfasts were excellent (I recommend the McSween's haggis if you want to try this traditional Scottish taste treat--it's perfectly seasoned), the staff so helpful, the lobby a great meeting place for colleagues and friends. Others have mentioned the location with easy accessibility to restaurants, coffee, and the Bruntsfield Links--a beautiful green space--and most especially, the buses that go everywhere in town. Ten to fifteen minute ride to the castle, the train station, the Princes Street Gardens, and the Royal Mile--what more can one ask? I'll be back for a short work stay next year and plan to stay again at this lovely hotel!

Anecdotal, Pune, India 02/06/2019

We stayed here for 3 nights, and we were upgraded to a superior room. It was on the first floor, and was really spacious, well appointed with everything you need-clean sheet, pillows, large bed, big wardrobe, sofa, TV, tea/coffee maker, safe and a bathroom with bath-tub and good quality toiletries. It is very well maintained hotel, though location wise it is about a 15-minute walk to the Castle and the Royal Mile. Also, airport tram services are not available near the hotel and the Uber costs about 21 Euros.

Caledonianne, Banbury, United Kingdom 27/05/2019

I had a one-night stay while attending a conference, and was delighted with my bijou but stylish and very well-equipped bedroom, and smart and snazzy shower room. I was originally attracted by the fact the hotel offered free parking, but in the event arrived in Edinburgh by train. Although there were plenty of buses on hand to take me into the centre, I enjoyed a gentle stroll from the hotel to the EICC. I would very happily stay here again if attending another conference at the same venue. Food and service at the Bisque bistro were also first-rate.

"Very Good Hotel but let down by some reception staff"

lizcoppola, london 25/05/2019

The Bruntsfield is well located for those who want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre for a bit of green landscape and yet want easy access to all its attractions. The executive double room we stayed in was clean and very comfortable, even if the decor was a bit dated. We really liked the restaurant overlooking onto a pretty internal garden. The cuisine while not outstanding was of good quality. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a problem with one of the reception staff although they were generally courteous and helpful. We left our room around 9am on Sunday morning and returned around 13.30 to find 1) our room key didnt work and 2) our room was still not cleaned. We went to reception 2 time to have our key re-magnetised by the gentleman receptionist. The 3rd time he finally came up and found that our room key had been blocked a day earlier than our checkout. It would have been nice if he had bothered to check the first or second time, before making us come down to reception twice. An apology for the inconvenience would have been nice too. He had a cold distant attitude 2) This same unhelpful attitude came through when we asked for our room to be cleaned that day (it was already past 13.00). When I enquired a second time at around 2pm when the room would be cleaned he just said it would be cleaned eventually and that the cleaners was busy. When he came to our room to test our key the third time it did not work, I asked him to ask housekeeping to clean our room sooner as I was tired of waiting. Again no apology and he agreed reluctantly to ask housekeeping to clean our room. From his sullen attitude and no appearance of a housecleaner,I believe he did not bother. Although I had booked independently, I was part of a group of about 25 people who had left early that morning. So I knew that the hotel was not full that day. Also, I had found availability when I looked for a room for a friend that evening. It seemed that housekeeping was prioritizing the cleaning of recently vacated rooms rather than rooms with remaining guests. When we got tired of waiting over an hour for our room to be cleaned, I called reception again asking for it to be cleaned so we could relax. A much more friendly lady replied this time and immediately sent up a cleaner. With the exception of this one gentleman, the staff had been very generally welcoming and considerate. I would otherwise have given this hotel 5 stars

No hot foods included, but hot food can be ordered off the menu for an upcharge. Staff was helpful and friendly. Within walking distance to the castle, Victoria St., etc, but bring a map as the streets wind all over. Overall a nice hotel.

tonywool, Swindon, United Kingdom 17/05/2019

Stayed here for a night for business, allocated single room on first floor facing park/road so had a nice view and was spoilt by the good weather too! Room had everything you need for a short stay and whilst clean cosy it was well appointed. No aircon but had a fan and the window did open for fresh air but suffers with traffic noise open and closed, although this didn't bother me and had a good nights sleep. The bathroom looked new and was very modern with a nice walk in shower! Check in was a breeze as you would expect, there was free Wifi everywhere which was a bonus as some places charge. No issues with the food and drink so all in all a nice hotel. The park opposite was a good place to stretch your legs or soak up the sun and watch the world go by with a fair selection of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Recommended.

Caroline S, Aberdeen, United Kingdom 12/05/2019

We visited this hotel for a long weekend. Check-in was busy, but Jenny was very helpful and efficient, and provided a very friendly welcome. We were advised we had been upgraded and given directions on how to find it. Upon arrival our room was very spacious and had a super view, but some areas were found not to be very clean. We mentioned one particular issue to Jenny who apologised and sorted it out. The room appeared to be one of the older rooms, and is in need of some TLC. However the bed was very comfortable and we had a fantastic sleep. We didn't use the restaurant except for breakfast. The food was delicious and there was a great variety of hot and cold food. We did have to wait quite a long time the first morning for our hot breakfast to arrive, and depending on who was serving, the service varied from friendly and helpful to quite curt and unhelpful. The room was well appointed although would benefit from some information about the local area. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the city centre and is surrounded by fantastic restaurants and shops. We were lucky to get parked but spaces are quite limited and small. Overall we had an enjoyable stay but feel that there needs to be closer attention to detail in cleaning and that some of the older rooms need refurbishing. Special thanks to Jenny for her friendliness!

stayed 2 days in early May 2019. Clean quiet spacious room on top floor. Friendly helpful check-in. Had 1 dinner in the near empty DR overlooking the patio & it was good. Breakfast at 10 pounds ($18 Canadian) is overpriced so we opted to walk to a nearby cafe & got an A-1 full Scottish breakfast for 5 pounds. Approx. 30 min. walk to the Castle & Royal Mile is downhill & pleasant BUT we taxied back (8 pounds).

Martin W, Portsmouth, United Kingdom 06/05/2019

We stayed for 5 nights in April/May 2019 to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and to introduce my wife to Edinburgh/Scotland. We had a super room (No.8) which is one of several new bedrooms in the hotel. A lovely room overlooking the park, with a very large en-suite bath/shower room. The bedroom contained a huge, comfortable bed, a small writing desk and chair, and a very large, circular table and 2 armchairs. Without exception the staff were friendly, polite, professional and a pleasure to deal with. Special mention must go to Jenny on reception, who was helpfulness personified, and Julie, Duty Manager, who never failed to pause for a chat whenever she saw us. The only slight drawback is that the in-house restaurant is a brasserie, and therefore has a slightly limited range of dishes. But that really is a very minor quibble, and didn't detract from our visit in any way.

Six nights here recently while vacationing with family. Rooms are a good size for two people so that we did not feel cramped. Bathroom was also a nice size, but it did not have an exhaust fan as many older, renovated places do not, but it was clean and modern. Beds were comfortable (we were in a twin bed room), and the duvet was quite warm, but I was told you can ask for a sheet and blanket instead as there is no a/c in the rooms. Nice and roomy breakfast room downstairs, with breakfast included, but they have a menu as well. We also had dinner one night in their downstairs pub, and the food was very good. Bus right down the street to all the Royal Mile sites. I would definitely stay here again!

Paul1960_4, Benfleet, United Kingdom 30/04/2019

We'd just completed the North Coast 500, and had booked a couple of nights here, to see a bit of our favourite city, before heading home. Upon arrival, we were informed that we'd been given a free upgrade … which was nice! We were given room 102, which was MASSIVE! Queen-sized double bed, in a big, high-ceilinged room, with a lounge area off to one side, furnished with a 2-seater sofa and coffee table. Bathroom was very nice also. Good location, fairly close to the city centre (10/15-minute walk to Prince's Street I guess). Breakfast was tasty, with various options available. Left there feeling very refreshed, for our 400-mile drive home.

J099, Derby, United Kingdom 29/04/2019

Booked this hotel as it was only 1/2 mile from Novotel Edinburgh Centre where I was running an event the next day. Reasonable rate including breakfast via booking.com Car Parking - limited and operated on a 1st come 1st served basis but we got a space. Alternatively there is on road parking directly outside hotel which is free after 6.30pm at night and all day Sunday Bedroom - was very spacious (I think we got a free upgrade to an Executive Room), very clean and had everything we needed. Bathroom was also spotless with ample number of towels provided. Breakfast - did not have so unable to comment but my partner said it was good. Location - excellent, 15 minute walk to Grassmarket area of the city, 25 to Princess Street. Buses run regularly from just down the road - catch a number 11, 16 or 23 to take you in to the city. £4.00 day ticket allows you unlimited travel until 11.30pm or single journey tickets are £1.70 each. Make sure you have correct change though as drivers do not give change. Staff - superb, everyone we spoke to was very polite and professional Overall - good standard of hotel, service and good location

Overall a very nice place to stay. We did think the breakfast was a little expensive.

My husband and I spent a week at Bruntsfield Hotel and were so pleased with not only the location but the entire hotel staff. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the evening meal at the Bisque Brasserie. The manager and desk clerks were so competent and gladly helped with any touring info or information. Jenny and Soul especially went out of their way to accommodate our every request! We will recommend The Bruntsfield Hotel to our friends and family.

I recently stayed at the Bruntsfield Hotel for the second time within 8 days. On both occasions I found this hotel to be well worth it. The staff made one feel welcome and the quality of the food was excellent. I also found the overall value to be excellent. The hotel is walking distance (15mins) from the castle and a short taxi ride from Waverley Station. I would certainly use the hotel again when in Edinburgh.

My wife and I spent two nights here on a mini break. It was a late booking and an absolute gem of a find. The staff were warm and friendly and the room as clean and tidy. Breakfast was very good too and freshly prepared - not food from a stagnant buffet. Car parking is a bit on the tight-side if you drive an estate car.

It was a delight to be in this stylish part of town in an hotel which ticks most of the boxes. It is well-placed, has nice big rooms, huge comfortable beds, and brilliant continental breakfasts. There is also car parking. The breakfasts are really superior: good Greek yoghourt and loads of freshly cut fruit. The cooked breakfasts looked good too. The car parking is limited. Once you have a place you should endeavour to keep it! The space we wanted to call our own was taken when we next got there but the hotel receptionist allowed us to use a space reserved for staff so long as we vacated it earlyish in the morning. The story of what happened then is too long to recount but ended very happily. Walking on Bruntsfield Links and the Meadows to the museums, seeing Bruntsfield and north Morningside was a great experience. A great hotel. Many thanks.

User 14/04/2019

This hotel was in a great location. We could park the car and walk into the old town. A nice 20 minute walk through the park took you down through the Grassmarket and up to the castle. The hotel room was quite large and had nice views of the park accross the street. The walls were a bit thin and could hear the neighbours but it wasn't that bad. The best thing by far about this hotel was Jenny who checked us in. She talked us through a map telling us which way we should walk, where to stop.off and recommending places we should visit. Jenny even wrote down the bus numbers we might need and the fare info. I think this allowed us to get to all the best places and make the most of our time there. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk us its really appreciated.

Very pleasant visit here in January 2019. The hotel had been refurbished throughout since my last visit many years ago and has been greatly improved with the upgrade. Welcome reception and most helpful and friendly staff. I had upgraded our room choice and it proved to be really excellent with an adjoining dressing room and fine view over the Meadows. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the meal was agreeable but not outstanding. Breakfast in the morning was really very good which we both enjoyed greatly. Staff were very nice and most attentive. Service excellent. Have no hesitation in recommending this as a good hotel and we look forward to returning there on our next trip to Edinburgh.

This visit was a Xmas present from my partner's family. We arrived and was warmly welcomed and shown to a fabulous 4 Poster bedroom which was very spacious and the facilities were first class. We had 2 meals in the hotel and the service and food was top quality. The only downfall was the limited parking and the location was about 2 miles from Princess Street, but we were advised by the staff to use the bus service when we went to Leith to see the Royal Yacht Brittania. There are many buses going to the centre Edinburgh and you can get a Day Rider for £4 per day which gives you multi-travel until 2330hrs. The staff were very helpful and we would not hesitate in returning to the hotel in the future.

Hotel was easy to find and had free parking. No complaints about the hotel, our room was lovely with a view over the park. We thought it might be noisy due to being on the main road but it was fine. Breakfast area was really nice, good value and plenty of choice. We'd definitely use this hotel if we come back to the city.

Stayed for 4 nights in mid March. Hotel is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Good location to explore the city. Bus service just outside the entrance which is cheap and regular or a fairly short walk to the city centre. Staff on reception, in Restaurant and bar were lovely, especially lady on reception (Jenny I think?) who spent lots of time giving us advice on the sights to see and transport links etc. The evening manager was also very welcoming and full of good suggestions. The room was spacious and the bed was large and comfortable. Food in the restaurant was good and reasonable value, especially the breakfast which was well prepared. Only slight complaint was that the pizza on the evening menu was not great, but other dishes were very well prepped and tasty. Lots of other food options in the surrounding streets. A lovely stay, we enjoyed it very much.

User 20/03/2019

Just outside of the city center, but less than 5-7 minutes via one of the best bus networks in the nation, this hotel provided great value for money and exactly the sort of functional and comfortable stay for overnight business. The room was small but I only needed it for a night's sleep. There was a large, powerful standing fan in the room that I was pleasantly surprised to see since I find the noise of the fan drowns out any of the typical hotel noise, which is great for alight sleeper like myself.

Location is great and parking is free at the hotel (which doesn't happen everywhere). Rooms are well laid out, breakfast is plentiful though not the cheapest. We had a problem with water supply as did a few room but they fixed it. No complaints. Service was smooth and efficient and there's free shortbread in the lobby - what's not to like about that! The bar is relaxed and the staff there are knowledgeable and friendly.

The Bistro, bar and restaurant were very good, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants and independent shops in the Bruntsfield area. Would certainly stay there again on my next visit to Edinburgh.

Stayed here for 2 nights and overall a positive experience. Check in and out very easy and the staff are friendly. We brought the car and was able to park up on site and leave it there for the duration of our stay with no extra charge, it was easy to locate for our first visit to Edinburgh. Rooms are quite old fashioned decor and did not have a fridge which we would have preferred probably something more modern with a few more facilities. No iron or ironing board so we had to call reception but they did bring one up straight away. Tv worked fine and had enough channels, plus the room and bathroom both clean. We didn't find the bed very comfy but that's just personal opinion, however we did like the thick curtains which blocked out light nicely. Hotel is about 10 minute walk from the main city centre bit.

TunaStubbs, Timbuktu, Mali 28/01/2019

I decided to overnight in Edinburgh rather than getup at 5am and drive three hours for a seminar. This hotel had a single room for £50 including breakfast so I thought I'd give it a go. I must confess to being a wee bit nervous as the room was described as ‘cosy' and any seasoned traveler knows that's a euphemism for ‘tiny'. The room was great. Despite being sold as a single it had a double bed, views over the links, and all mod cons. The breakfast was amazing with tatty scones, veggie haggis and quorn sausages. Special mention must go to the receptionist Jenny who was funny, friendly and welcoming. Only downside was I didn't see local author Ian Rankin. Great place. Recommended.

Stayed for a long weekend with a number of other friends and family in connection with a family wedding in the area (not in the hotel itself but just down the road). Staff were very helpful, a couple of the rooms were upgraded and the big ones were ideal (plenty of room) for the the bride and bridesmaids to get ready in one and the boys to get ready in another. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The only problem with our room was that it was at the front of the hotel and so subject to noise from Morningside Road, but on the other hand the size and space were just ideal for what we needed - can't have it both ways. The Bistro normally closed at 7pm but the hotel kept it open especially for our party of 20 and the food was good.

We stayed in the Brunstfield Hotel for a few days over the New Year and from the moment we stepped into the reception we knew we had made the right choice. We were met by the lovely, smiley receptionist Nicola who soon had us checked in and car parking sorted. As mentioned the car park is pretty small but there is lots of parking around the hotel. We had two rooms which we sparking clean with a fabulous comfy bed and lots of storage space. On our first evening we had booked a restaurant in the city which was a short walk although there was a bus stop outside which was easily accessible. We all slept like logs on our return although the room was quite warm, however as we was in such a quiet area we could open the window without being disturbed. We ate breakfast in the downstairs dining room which also extended into the lovely airy breakfast room. The staff were very polite and attentive and we was served teas and coffee and the hot breakfast, the cereals and fruits were buffet. There was lots of choice and we really enjoyed our breakfasts. We had a fabulous time in Edinburgh and were out and about most of the time, the highlight being New Years Eve. We would definitely like to return to Edinburgh and the Bruntsfield would be our hotel of choice.

Value for money is fantastic for this standard of hotel. The breakfast was excellent with a full array of everything you could think off cooked breakfasts,Continental and also Gluten free options. Something for everyone. Our room was just perfect, nice and quiet and had everything we required. The bed was so comfortable following our Christmas shopping and we weren't long in zonking out! The hotel is also very close to some wonderful eateries and the small individual shops nearby are lovely. Most importantly though,the staff are a credit to the hotel as they are so accommodating and couldnt do enough for you! Can't wait till our next visit! Well Done Bruntsfield Hotel! See you soon!

Stayed here for 2 nights for a work trip. The room was comfortable (if not a little hot!) and hotel is well located for the city centre. The hotel could probably do with a little updating, but all in all a good stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We requested and obtained a quiet room and we were pleased not to be in a room overlooking the main road. Everything was first rate. We had a good meal in the main dining room and our room was extremely comfortable with lots of space and a first class bathroom. The staff were very attentive.and friendly.

My husband and I came to Edinburgh for two nights to do a spot of Christmas shopping. We arrived on Thursday to be greeted by a lovely gentleman on reception (I'm afraid I didn't get catch any names) who was so friendly and attentive. We were given a free upgrade for no reason beyond the upgraded room being available, which was a nice surprise. The room was a mission to find as the first floor was a bit of a maze (the place is deceptively big!) but once we found it we were very impressed. Everything was immaculate and clean, with every amenity I would expect and more. The tea and coffee facilities were particularly good, and the bathroom was lovely. The bed was huge and comfortable, with a tv in the bedroom area and another in the lounge area. The decor was lovely and everything just felt so comfortable and well thought out. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated with stunning interior decor that is elegant yet homely. The staff were all so attentive and friendly, smiling warmly and making us feel very welcome. The bar was comfortable with table service and a good menu. We only ate breakfast and one light lunch there but everything was fabulous. The choice at breakfast was impressive and the service very good. The only two criticisms I could make are: 1) the parking is very limited and very tight. However, this is to be expected in a city hotel and there is nothing they can do about it. Not ideal but certainly not enough of an issue to put us off staying again. And 2) the Christmas tree in the bar beside the lift was terrible! Lol. It isn't a serious critique but it was a little confusing why, when the rest of the decor including the Christmas decorations, was so well done, there was a lame looking wonky tree too tall for the low ceiling sat looking so forlorn! In all seriousness, I cannot find anything negative enough about the hotel, it's friendly staff or the amazing service we received to reward anything less than 5/5. This will certainly be our hotel of choice anytime we find ourselves in Edinburgh.

Used to stay here when our son was at Uni in Edinburgh but hadn't been back for 5 years. It's still a great hotel s bit out of the centre in a lovely area with plenty if small shops and quality eateries. Walkable to the centre, on bus route or plenty of taxis. Without a doubt one of the best hotel breakfasts anywhere, no buffet here, everything freshly and perfectly cooked to order. King sized beds are very comfortable. There have been many improvements which appear to be on going. No complaints and would be happy to return.

Nice hotel in a good area within Edinburgh. Easy access to city centre because local buses are plentiful. If travelling to the hotel by car, parking spaces are very limited and also small. Overall, the comfort, service and food quality is very good value for price paid. Well worth consideration -

Acuarioangel, Ilkley, United Kingdom 03/12/2018

An excellent hotel in both position and quality. We decided to stay in Edinburgh for a few days of sightseeing and searched for a hotel with parking and up popped The Bruntsfield Hotel. Situated a reasonable walking distance from the main areas of Edinburgh with an alternative of a nearby bus stop and a frequent bus service it is an ideal place to stay. Location good and the welcoming and friendly staff together with the quality interior certainly ticks all the boxes. Spotlessly clean and spacious. The breakfast was top quality and freshly prepared and again the surroundings lovely. As the weather wasn't the best on our second evening we decided to eat in the bistro one and we were impressed by the quality of the food and the very reasonable price. On the first evening we wandered a short distance up the road and ate at an exceptional Italian restaurant.We enjoyed our stay and would recommend unreservedly. Thank you for the happy memories!

nickb1232015, Scarborough, United Kingdom 30/11/2018

This hotel rates very near the top on our list of hotels we have stayed in. With friendly and knowledgeable staff, clean and comfortable rooms and a breakfast to set you nicely up for the day we could find no faults. With a bus stop just up the road, one could make use of the many frequent buses to travel into the centre as well as to other parts of the city (hint - buy a day ticket for £4 per person if you are planning on using the bus more than twice in a day otherwise it is £1.70 pp for any journey regardless of length - ask the reception for bus details). Our room was facing the main road but we surprisingly heard very little traffic noise and enjoyed three restful nights sleep. Just one tiny thing - a choice of gluten-free sausages at breakfast would have been nice (my wife is gluten intolerant).

Nigeljameson, Whitchurch, United Kingdom 19/11/2018

Much enjoyed stay at this not-so-far from city centre hotel. Lovely superior room overlooking the park - one small comment, would have been helpful to have had a small table between the comfy chairs to rest mugs of tea/coffee on. Apart from that - oh, and the strange experience of switching the main TV off and somehow at the same time switching the other TV that was back-toback to the other TV on! - the room was fantastic with all that you would need in the bathroom. There was a hiccup at the start of our stay when a gift of flowers from our family was wrongly attributed, via a gift card, to the hotel - however, this was quickly and expertly resolved (by the Deputy Manager) and we were more than pleased with the outcome (a free bottle of wine!). We would certainly return here - and I haven't even mentioned the food yet, very good standard and reasonable prices.

We stayed one night this week in one of the recently refurbished rooms in the Best Western Bruntsfield and it was excellent!

Also love the smart new reception area and as usual, breakfast was excellent.

Front desk staff were very helpful. Housekeeping kept my room really clean. The bar/lounge on the ground floor has wonderful food. Never disappointed. Would stay there again.

The room was excellent. Everything about it was 1st class. However, the noise from the street was loud. Even through the hotel is situation across the street from a lovely park, the road is a busy thoroughfare with lots of buses, trucks and cars constantly in route at a breakneck speed. The windows were double pane but still not enough to stop the noise.

Foodie k, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 29/10/2018

We attend an event in their private function suite to the right of the main entrance. I would highly recommend this place for multiple reasons: 1. The staff - they were so friendly, attentive and professional. The bar staff were friendly, the catering staff were extremely efficient and the manager was welcoming and professional. We had children running around and playing - which I sure was slightly disruptive to the waiters - but not at one moment did they appear to be bothered. 2. The food - the food was perfect. Lovely fresh sandwiches, accompanied by salmon, potatoes and vegetables. Very fresh, tasty and enough to go around. 3. The presentation - the room was beautifully presented, very clean, modern and lots of lovely finishing touches. I would look no further if you are looking for a private dining/event in Edinburgh - the Bruntsfield Hotel will not fail to deliver everything you expect and more. Thank you for ensuring such a lovely day was had by all.

We have stayed many times and have always found this hotel to be comfortable and clean. We noticed a complete overhaul of the entrance and foyer area of the hotel which made this more inviting. There were still complimentary short bread and water available. Travelling as 3 adults, the hotel can accommodate sharing the one room, a family room, so this makes staying more enjoyable. There are also some car park spaces (on a first come first serve basis) and when bringing a car, we have always been able to utilize this for at least part of the stay. We had breakfast and found this to be the usual good standard, with many choices and friendly staff. We will stay again and recommend this to others wanting a good hotel with friendly staff.

Lovely hotel. Room was a good size and very clean. No noise. Good area facing a park with some nice shops in the surrounding area. About a 20 minute walk to Princes street but plenty of buses to jump on to get you there if you don't fancy walking. Breakfast was really good with a great choice. We sat by the window for breakfast and were treated to a view onto the courtyard with some squirrels hopping about. Couldn't ask for more!

"Average hotel."

Per D, Oslo, Norway 13/10/2018

This is neither more or less, it's just average. I stayed here for 3 nights last weekend and found it to be O.K. It says City centre but it's rather a bit of centre to be correct. It's only a 10 minutes walk from Grassmarket but it will take you 20 to get to the Golden mile. One of the nice thing about the room is the bed. Really comfortable. But that's the only thing. Don't get me wrong. It's clean and the staff is courteous, but it's a bit warned down. Sometimes the breakfast can repair some faults the other facilities lack, but not this time. Unfortunately. The breakfast was actually one of the worst I have had in a long time. There's so many other Hotels closer to the city with better standard. Go for these instead.

Ross R, Stafford, United Kingdom 11/10/2018

Well were do you start, this Best Western at Bruntsfield is just a great Hotel to stay in as its realy handy to get to the centre of Edinburgh from here with bus stops 100metres away and the bus transport system so good that I always use it and leave my car or Motorcycle at the hotel. Well we had booked in last Saturday for a few nights as we had booked the Hotels Cardoon suite for our sons wedding on Monday. From the time we arrived until we checked out we were treated like family we just love staying here when in Edinburgh. The staff are so helpful and knowledgeble its just great. The wedding arrangement and the day was just perfect,and was arranged through Fiona Brown who booked the Cardoon suitefor us. It was beautifully decorated and set up perfect for the wedding along with the Dj we all had a great time. I was constantly told by guests that the venue was beautiful and that the staff were so nice to them which all makes for a great day. Even when we were supposed to be seated at around 5-30pm for the meal to begin the staff were patient as we were an hour behind as the photographer was still taking photographs of the couple and guests in the gardens. When we did finaly get around to sitting down the meal was exellent the food was delicious and all the guests complimented on the food etc. The night finaly finished of about 1-30am with the staff still behind the bar and still with big smiles on there faces and lovely compliments of how the wedding had gone. I would like to compliment them all for there hard work and pleasant demeaner throughout the whole stay at the Bruntsfield. Thank you all so very much for all your hard work and for the way you looked after all our guests at the wedding and those staying in the Hotel. We shall return soon again for the Xmas Market and look forward to seening you all again. Kind regards Ross & Gail Robinson

I spent my final night in Scotland at this hotel. It was great. Check in was a breeze. They offer free parking. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is within walking distance to attractions, restaurants, shops and pubs. There is also an amazing park across the street. I was able to go for my power walk without worrying about traffic. This hotel was 10 times better than the Airbnb I booked in Edinburgh for the beginning of my trip. It was also less expensive than the Airbnb. Breakfast in the morning was very good and you can custom order your breakfast and take advantage of the buffet. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Edinburgh.

"Pleasant hotel, but facilities are outdated."

Ernst G, Princeton, New Jersey 07/10/2018

Upon arrival on Sunday morning our room was not yet available but there was tea&coffee and cookies in the lobby and friendly staff. The hotel has pleasant feel of a boutique establishment. We were disappointed with breakfast (not a good value), considering that there are nice choices just outside on street. And it's a bit odd that you have to let me know night before. But this is not big deal considering that you have an option to go for it or skip it. However, the frugality of operation is a bit irritating. One bar of soap for 2 people.. only replenished every other night! What's worse, the plumbing was unacceptably uncomfortable. The faucet did not have mixer. So we had to choose between scolding hot or cold water, which made even washing hands a challenging procedure. This is faucet from 19th century. We traveled in August and weather was very cool, so absence of AC was not an issue. The room decor is quite dated and lacking any frills, bed was on a smaller side which is a shame considering room was quite large and spacious. Instead of closet, there is a wardrobe. The room catalog says bathrobes are available upon request. When I asked receptionist about it, I was told there is no such thing. I think this option only apply to their other property. Location is ok. It's in a quiet neighborhood. 15-20 minutes walk to Old Town area and a bus stop nearby. The misalignment of the elevator with actual floors was strange and inconvenient when you bring in luggage. Overall this hotel requires updating to make it adequate for 21st century. If you travel from North America, keep in mind to bring your outlet converter or you can loan from the reception. The staff at the reception was always friendly and helpful.

The hotel was very accommodating our early arrival around 8:30 a.m. We were able to buy breakfast at the hotel even though we hadn't stayed there the night before. It was easy to get to and from by public transportation and cabs. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was updated. The facility is an older building with uneven floors that squeak. But, the accommodations were nice and clean. The food was good and adequate and it was convenient to eat dinner there. Drinks were excellent and the help very helpful. I would consider staying there again.

I don't think you could do better than the Bruntsfield Hotel when staying in Edinburgh. I met people who had stayed elsewhere and wished they hadn't, particularly when I told them how good this was. Clean, well organised, friendly, helpful - really, what more could one want? The breakfast is excellent, whether you have buffet or cooked. There is a very reasonably priced dinner, especially if you can order before 7pm. It is on a bus route (no.11), so if you come by train, find the right bus stop, as taxis are expensive.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Best Western Bruntsfield. This hotel has a great breakfast (which was included in our booking) and they will cook eggs, bacon, haggis, sausage and a few other things to order. There is a cold buffet as well. This hotel is in a quieter area about 20 minutes walk to Princes Street. There are a couple of good restaurants close by - Montpeliers and Papilio. We had very good meals at both of them and they were reasonable. We took the 48 hour Hop On Hop Off tour (bought tickets at the Waverley Bridge information centre first) which included the 3 tour lines and admission to Hollyrood Palace, Edinburgh Castle and the Britannia for around 55 pounds. It was a great value and I would highly recommend if you're a first time visitor to Edinburgh. There was no fridge in the room but the staff brought up an ice bucket on request.

Hotel was clean , and this is the most important thing Morning receptionist and the other lady ( who seems to be supervisor ) were very friendly and helpful I'm sorry dont know the names . but I think the receptionist was Italian .and in fact they the only 2 members of the F.O I saw them wearing the smile Visit from 4th - 7th Sep Breakfast was not so good . Bed was very comfortable . and the size of the room was good enough . in general good place to stay for short period of time

"Once again, a fabulous two week stay"

JannaCanada, Nanaimo, Canada 26/08/2018

My husband and I spent two weeks at the Bruntsfield Hotel during Festival Fringe. We were up early each day, and fortified by the scrumptious hot breakfast, were able to "do the Fringe" until late at night. Because it is only a 20-35 minute walk to most Fringe venues, we were able to get some exercise whilst admiring the beautiful architecture of Edinburgh. The room was spacious, quiet, and the bathroom had lots of hot water for both baths and showers. The bed was a nice comfy king and the bedding was always fresh during our two week stay. An unexpected bonus was a view of the fireworks at the Castle during Tattoo. We found the front desk staff to be very helpful and the morning breakfast staff attentive to our needs. There are many things to like about the Bruntsfield Hotel, but the homemade shortbread, which was a post-Fringe snack, has to be among our favorites!

"Lovely Rooms, Quieter Location"

NhLulu, nh 23/08/2018

Edinburgh has so many options for places to stay, that it was difficult choosing one. Originally I wanted to stay right on "The Royal Mile" for convenience as I was traveling with family, one of which was elderly. However, I was happy that I selected this location because it wasn't as busy or as loud as staying on the Royal Mile would have been, and it was very pleasant being located right across the street from an extended park system ideal for my morning runs. We stayed in 3 rooms. All were lovely, spacious, immaculate and had comfortable beds and pillows. The only negative to the rooms was the water pressure when showering. It just about trickled out, enough for bathing, but less that ideal for washing hair. The food in the adjoining restaurant was ok, and mediocre. The service at the restaurant, was poor. Long waits, waiters in training. But, there were some delicious restaurants nearby on the main road that were fun to experience. Overall a good choice and I would stay here again.

"First wedding anniversary disappointment"

Ez87, London, United Kingdom 23/08/2018

I booked this hotel for our first wedding anniversary but left absolutely disappointed. I stated that it was our anniversary when I booked it and sent a follow up email to remind them. When we got to the hotel I mentioned it again and all the guy at the reception could say was "you should have told us" I was angered. They made no effort to make our experience here romantic and memorable. The room was basic and the hot tap water actually burns your skin! So dangerous. Throughout our whole stay we had bad reception so we couldn't even use their wifi! We should be compensated for this poor service. Why put us in a room that does not allow us to use your wifi that you claim we would receive???!

User 15/08/2018

I was in Edinburgh for 2 weeks for both a vacation and doing research on family history. I wanted someplace quiet but not to far from the Royal mile. I was a 15-20 min walk from all the action. I was on the second floor overlooking the park. The front desk staff was great. Housekeeping was great. Eat a lot at the Bisque Bar/Lounge in the hotel. Great food and service. I also would recommend getting a bus pass. Great bus system over there.

patm0634, Altrincham, United Kingdom 14/08/2018

We are regular guests at The Bruntsfield Hotel in Edinburgh, where we have always found the staff to be very professional and helpful with a smile. We always receive a very friendly welcome on arrival. There are sufficient parking facilities in the grounds of, or very near to the hotel. On our last visit at the beginning of August, we were delighted to be allocated one of the newly refurbished rooms. The room and bathroom were ultra-modern, stylish, very comfortable and quiet. The room itself was spacious, very clean and with a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were excellent, as were the evening meals, which we ate either in the restaurant, or bar area – both attended by very attentive staff. The hotel is situated in a very favourable location facing The Meadows, a large green expanse with a pleasant twenty minute walk to the Old Town and very convenient for the many interesting tourist attractions in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. We look forward to our next stay and a huge “Thank you” to all at The Bruntsfield for the usual excellent hospitality.

Excellent distance from the city center. Nice, clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Decent breakfast. Quaint architecture. Quiet stay for sleeping in. Right off of The Meadows so you can putt around on the putting greens, walk down to where some of the Edinburgh Festival shows are playing, or get to the Royal Mile within 20 minutes of walking.

"Good location and pleasant; can be a bit noisy and hot in summer."

Fuzby, Iowa 06/08/2018

The location is the best feature of this hotel; directly across from the 'Links', which are quite pleasant to stroll through, and within a walk from many major attractions, shopping, restaurants. Rooms are pleasant and comfortable, food is very good and staff are friendly. In summer, windows open just a few inches and rooms can be stuffy on hot days. There is also quite a bit of traffic noise, so bring ear plugs if you aren't a heavy sleeper (wedding parties at the hotel can also bring quite a bit of noise). Overall, a nice place.

If you don't mind a bit of traffic noise, this Hotel was it!. I loved looking out the window to see a park across the street. We had the first floor room. Very convenient to the Lobby & Restaurant. There is no air-conditioning in this Hotel, but Edinburgh's weather is always pleasant and they provide a Fan, which helps cut down on the traffic noise. Comfortable bed, nice damask sheets and down feather pillows made for a well rested good nights sleep.

User 21/07/2018

I have been staying at The Bruntsfield for some 17 plus years and after all this time the staff still epitomise the friendliness, genuine hospitality and service that attracted me to the hotel years ago. The recent refreshment of the decor has bought more light and space and a certain contemporary feel that makes a real change for the better to the ambiance. The bar and restaurant offer great choice and quality. The rooms are not modern identical boxes but well thought out spaces making the most of the space available. Really comfortable beds and linen. If only all hotels were like this for a single visit but when it is your 200th, it is really somewhere special.

We had a great room here with windows that opened to a leafy courtyard. Lots of room, very clean and well located. Staff are friendly and helpful. There's a lovely park across the road. The hotel has lots of character. It was a walk of about 15 minutes to the town centre and 30 to the castle. Cabs are cheap and plentiful. We walked all day but generally caught a cab back at no fit when we were tired. The restaurant is great with good food and friendly service. I recommend staying here !!

Alex H, Milan, Italy 12/07/2018

The short distance walk to the center was very pleasant through the park. Instead of the taxi we preferred to enjoy walking through the free golf green and people having barbecue on the grass. Our room had a very high ceiling and 3 windows looking on the park. The mattress was very comfortable and the bathroom super clean. The staff is very friendly and smiling especially Sabrina. Breakfast is special with gluten free choices , fresh fruit and warm eggs cooked at the moment following our personal tastes. Scrambled with smoked salmon was our favorite. Yogurt with seeds, raisins, cranberry and nuts was superb. The restaurant in the green courtyard is a relaxing bonus after a long walk and the menu was varied and not expensive. Definitively an excellent experience

Sassisnipper, Scotland 05/07/2018

Just returned home from a two night stay at the Bruntsfield,I found it on Tripadvisor when looking for somewhere for my Mum and I as we'd been invited to The Royal Garden Party. I booked a twin room which was very conveniently situated just through the door from the reception.It was airy and spacious with two super comfy beds.It had everything we needed and more including a bath and shower. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food and service was excellent.The bar/bistro area is cozy and modern with a lovely courtyard,garden area leading off the main dining room. The breakfast both mornings were also very good,something for everyone.The staff are very friendly and professional.The manager even took time to stop and ask how our stay was etc,not often you get that in a hotel as they are usually too busy. I'm so glad we found this little gem as I'd highly recommend it if you plan a trip to the city,Bruntsfield area has some lovely designer shops, cafes and eateries and a beautiful park across from the hotel. I for sure would definitely stay here again.

Tstylistic78, Nottingham, United Kingdom 27/06/2018

I stayed for 3 nights over the weekend. I paid £165 per night which was a bit pricy but hotel was nice. Good variety for breakfast and parking was good. Limited spaces but I got a space every day apart from the first night when there was a wedding reception (perhaps up to 20 spaces). There is also free parking across the road in the evenings and sundays. 20 minute walk from the castle and royal mile if you know the best route. I would recommend as location is good. I think further central would make parking difficult. Creaky floorboards though.

This hotel is a short distance from the city centre, which is easily accessible by a frequent bus service. There is a wide range of shops and bistros nearby, so you don't have to go far if you don't want to eat in the hotel. The hotel is housed in linked Victorian properties so the rooms have more character than the more modern alternatives. Having been recently refurbished, the decor is really nice. My room was more spacious than I expected and was spotless as well as comfortable. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly.

jwinowiecki17, Kingsley, Michigan 20/06/2018

I stayed here 2-14 May while visiting my son who is a university student. I needed a hotel close to his apartment. However there were many issues. I was put in the wrong room,a shabby"family room" with bunk beds instead of the Executive room I paid for. The housekeeping was sloppy (bottle cap under night stand) and the restocking of coffee making supplies hit or miss. There was endless construction in the Lobby leading to almost daily power outage s. No signs were posted on elevators or electric doors. I had to find my way to my room by the backstairs in a dark corridor, no emergency lighting. There is no ice machine and mini fridges are unheard of. I felt like I was camping in a construction site. The GM, Jason Doga,was difficult to meet with and by the end of my stay had actually done nothing to improve my opinion of his hotel. I had asked for a reduction in my (paid in full) bill at our meeting. By Checkout I had heard nothing from him and staff informed me no changes were made to my bill but they would be glad to have me stay with them in future at a 20 percent discount!

First, a huge thank to Janis who helped me print our boarding passes. Indeed all of the staff were excellent in this hotel. This hotel is a series of townhouses put together. Our room was beautifully appointed. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The breakfasts were included and were excellent. This is a fabulous bar and restaurant at this Best Western. We were also so very close to some major attractions -- museums, art galleries, and great shopping. The Bruntsfield community is a delight -- great restaurants and shops nearby. There is even a wonderful local Church of Scotland congregation within walking distance -- Barclay Viewforth. But the staff are the ones who excelled in offering great service. Thank you. (One thing to note. This is an old hotel. No airconditioning. It got quite hot some nights. There was a fan).

GaryW14, London 04/06/2018

We had a large comfortable bed in a spacious room, a reasonably sized bathroom with a bath, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits, and the buffet breakfast was good, and the staff we met were friendly and helpful, and the hotel is located opposite urban parkland in the affluent Edinburgh suburb of Bruntsfield, quite close to the city centre, with some free parking available to guests, which is helpful as the roads around the hotel are controlled parking zones. But...if you're going to badge your own brand as "plus" and charge as much as this hotel does, then there are quite a few things that you should be doing, and not doing. When we arrived the entrance hall was covered on both sides with pieces of paper billowing in the wind, to indicate perhaps half-finished decorations; we had to wait for the one receptionist to be available, as she had several things to contend with (so there needed to be a second receptionist) and whilst we waited we thought we would have a cup of the free coffee in the reception area - but the flask was empty. The door to our room (No.146) didn't fit tightly, so vibrated every time someone opened the fire door in the corridor (we wedged it tight with some paper), there was no air conditioning (just an electric fire for when it was cold and a fan for when it was hot) and no bottled water nor a mini fridge/bar. The TV had the usual bog-standard Freeview channels, rather than some kind of subscription package or even just BBC iplayer and ITV Hub. Our bath towels went missing after the first day and we had to request replacements, and our pyjamas were just tossed on to furniture when our bed was made, rather than folded and put on the bed. It was possible to order breakfast in bed, but not a cooked breakfast. Some of these things I don't mind and are unimportant compared to world hunger for example, and we had a perfectly comfortable time, but if you're charging that much for a room then you should be providing more. The Great Western bean counters need to be investing more in this hotel to make it good value, both in terms of room attributes and also more staff. At the moment they're trading on their location and that's not good enough.

While self parking was a bit of a nightmare, this hotel was a nice surprise at the end of a long travel day. After checking into our nice centrally located room we relied on the staff's recommendation and ventured out for an afternoon of sightseeing. The front desk again was most helpful making us dinner reservations. Breakfast is served in a very nice newly remodeled area that spills out onto a quaint cobbled courtyard. This is a comfortable well appointed hotel that I would gladly return to during future travel. My only criticism was the lack of help to carry heavy suitcases up and down the steep front entry staircase.

We stayed recently for a long weekend, and i have to say we were very pleased with the hotel, staff were all very helpful and friendly, our room was on ground floor facing the park opposite, spacious room with a large bathroom well fitted out, i was very surprised being on the front we never heard a sound from outside and slept very well,Breakfast was good with a large choice of hot and cold food although we had to pay an extra £10 EACH for breakfast, there is parking on the front of the hotel but limited, i would stay here again on our next visit to this lovely city.

J M, Newark-on-Trent, United Kingdom 27/04/2018

We stayed here for 3 nights this week. The hotel is well located outside the city centre but directly opposite some lovely green space and just on the edge of Morningside. Bus stops are only 100 m either side with very frequent service into the city and beyond, including directly to Ocean Terminal where the Royal Yacht Britannia is now berthed. The hotel is coming towards the end of a major refurbishment with the Reception/Foyer being finished this week. Some of the rooms are still under wraps but this did not impact on our stay. Our room was large and well appointed, overlooking the courtyard, very quiet and comfortable. The bathroom was also large and bright with sufficient toiletries for our needs. Breakfast comprised a good selection of cold and hot items, the latter freshly cooked to order and service was pleasant. Dinner was good, although we did have an issue with undercooking of one vegetable (swiftly amended). It was somewhat disappointing that a lady was allowed to carry on a loud mobile phone conversation for almost an hour - business related but nonetheless not conducive to conducting our own conversation. She even talked all the way through eating a roast dinner! The bar is a little 'diner-ish', with large tables and would be enhanced with a more intimate setting of lower tables in at least one part. It was noted that the bucket seats, although comfortable, are fraying badly at the bottom; however, it is possible that this area has yet to be refurbished. It was also surprising that, having ordered drinks at the bar, they were not delivered to the table; there would appear to be sufficient staff for this to happen. There are plenty of good bistros, coffee shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. All things considered, the overwhelming thought was we would definitely stay here again.

I would recommend this hotel, there were just some minor niggles for our stay which included the cooked breakfast, which was OK but the poached eggs were closer to hard-boiled on the second day I opted for the porridge which was much better and my husband took the scrambled eggs rather than the poached which were also much better. There were some renovations going on in the reception area but that was more disruptive to the staff than the guests and I am sure will look lovely when it is complete. The steps to the entrance are very steep and I didn't see a disabled access ramp which would have been helpful with the suitcases. The bathroom door in our room had a lock that would stick every now and again which was a little worrying. The bed was great and we had the best nights sleep of our trip so far. Recommended improvements, a fridge and air conditioning, the heating works very well but the room can get very warm and I wouldn't want to stay there in the hight of summer. Overall this is a nice hotel and the staff were fantastic and they did have car parking which is a premium in Edinburgh.

Our stay at the Bruntsfield was a very pleasant one for the two nights we had there. Our room was on the first floor at the rear with a view towards the city. It was clean, quite spacious and had a lovely bathroom with toiletries and a comfortable bed. The Brasserie and Bar was in the basement and breakfast was hot and served to order although a little slow in coming. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful with a smile when spoken to. The hotel is certainly very conveniently positioned with the city centre reached in a gentle 20min walk or alternatively there is a bus stop just down from the hotel. Car parking is a problem at the moment as there are refurbishments being carried out in some rooms. However this did not prevent us parking our car for the duration of our stay. We have to add that there was no noise from the work being carried out in some of the rooms which is to the credit of the hotel. Overall we could recommend this hotel as an ideal out of city stay avoiding the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh. The city has so much to offer for all tastes and has many sites to see with endless fine restaurants and shops galore with so much friendly Scottish hospitality in the many pubs and bars in the city.

Our stay here did not start well. When we arrived in the late morning after a transatlantic flight, the foyer of the hotel was completely ripped up, in the middle of a complete redecoration/reconstruction, and therefore we could not wait there in comfort while we waited for the room to become available. We could wait in the brasserie downstairs, but that was a bit cramped, and awkward, as we were just hanging out, not ordering anything but a cup of tea. Also, our room did not become available until exactly at 3pm, which is unusually rigid, even for rule-abiding Scots. From then on, however, our stay was excellent. The room for which we had waited so long was a lovely suite, with more than enough room for the two of us, and with a great deal of charm and character (and a very nice bathroom). And the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Even the breakfast that we had on our last day was good, and in the light and airy part of the brasserie that had been closed when we first arrived. Indeed the foyer area was already beginning to resume some form of order and comfort, with chairs brought back in. Overall this was an excellent stay, despite first impressions.

My husband and I have just come back after spending four nights at this hotel. What can I say ,after a not so good start , which was rectified very quickly by Ian who is a credit to this hotel we had a wonderful stay . All members of staff are friendly and polite , no matter where in the hotel you were. Breakfast was plentiful hot and cold choices. It was our first time having a traditional Scottish breakfast , it certainly didn't disappoint. Imogen on reception was first class . I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Try it you will not be disappointed.

Having stayed at this hotel several times a year for a number of years I will not be returning. Principally because my complaint received an irrelevant corporate speak reply and my follow up, merely trying to get a yes or no response was ignored. On arrival my wife (I was away on business unexpectedly) was given a "dirty room"; including coffee or cosmetic stains on surfaces. This was fairly quickly rectified after she complained - but no apology from the receptionist who booked her in when she returned the key for this room - a little thing but annoying none the less. My second point related to the upgrading works which the hotel was doing that resulted in much reduced onsite parking - a real pain/expense to find alternate parking in Edinburgh. I merely asked them to confirm they would inform me of similar works when booking in the future - question ignored. When I responded to the automated "how did we do?" email with the same question, once again ignored. Being a busy Edinburgh hotel they can obviously afford to do this.

Dear jdf111111, I appreciate your candid feedback following your recent stay with us.

We value your business and would welcome the opportunity to show you that your experience was a “one-off” and not our usual standards. Our upgrading work will be complete by end of a May and I am sure you will be impressed. Our car parking is indeed restricted during these building works however we are happy for guests to double park in our car park and we will contact guests just as soon as a space becomes available.

At a wedding at the hotel and stayed overnight. Hotel is very central - just 5 mins to Princess Street. Not many parking spaces but you can park on the road outside although it's £2 for each hour, max stay 4 hours. We had to park on the road but managed to get a space in the hotel car park after an hour or so after watching for 10 mins for a space to come available in the car park. The hotel has a lot stairs to get to the bar/restaurant - however they do have lifts to each area. The bar was small but nice, although it was a bit like a cellar, the dining room is next to the bar. The wedding we attended was superb with a great private area. We had a family room and this was really big king bed with separate room with bunk beds, each area had its own TV and shared a nice, big, bathroom with shower, which was very clean. Breakfast was good too, with help yourself coals meats, cheeses and breads. Our order for hot food was taken quickly from a great selection, we don't eat pork, and we had a lot of options. Would definitely return and recommend

We stayed over Easter weekend for a night. Primarily was looking for a reasonable priced hotel with free parking. Staff were friendly and they even a complimentary shortbread and water upon arrival at check in - bonus! The twin room was decent size and comfortable - look like the bathroom had just been remodelled as it looked quite new. The only downfall was that our wall between our neighbours was a bit thin and they seemed to be enjoying each others company during the night.....three times. We headed out to dinner in Old Town which was about a 15minute walk down the road. We splashed out and purchased breakfast which didn't disappoint. We didn't realise that there was a hot option included and after tucking into the cereals and toast we were greeted the hot menu which we also made full advantage of so well worth it! Overall we had a pleasant stay minus a bit of an interrupted sleep

We visited this hotel over Easter and can not speak highly enough of it. From being checked in by a very polite and helpful young lady to the staff at breakfast everyone was happy helpful and obliging. The hotel is spotlessly clean and fresh there was some work being undertaken in the hotel but the workmen were polite and this did not in any way spoil our stay. The rooms are well equipped beds very comfy. Fluffy white towels and bathrobes plenty of tea and coffee with biscuits replenished daily. Breakfast choice was excellent and served piping hot, fresh pastries and juices real coffee and very attentive service. We would definitely highly recommend this superb hotel - thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

Kirstie W, Shotley Bridge, United Kingdom 25/03/2018

Quite easy to find, we got the number 11 bus from near Waverley station and got off not far from the hotel. When we arrived it was undergoing some revamp work in the foyer, the receptionist apologised for the work but to be honest it was nothing that would interfere with the stay, although I was a bit worried when we realised our room was above where the guys were cutting wood outside, I need not have worried as nothing disturbed us. We were early for the room but the hotel were happy for us to leave our cases and go out exploring. It took about 30 minutes to walk into the old town, a very pleasant walk although could be challenging for people with small children or those poor walking, but there are plenty of buses and taxis that don't cost a lot of money. When we got back we went to check in, and my husband seemed a little puzzled at the price on the invoice, when we got to the room he looked up his invoice and noticed he was being charged £80 more than he thought, he then advised he had booked champagne for the following day for our wedding anniversary, when he queried the bill they found he had been charged twice, they were very apologetic, but I had asked my husband to cancel the champagne as we were going out anyway, it was a nice gesture on his part though. The room was amazing! A large suite. I am quite picky when it comes to hotel rooms and there were a few a things I thought could be better, but that did not detract from the overall experience so not worth mentioning, a good size bathroom with anti slip mats for bath and shower (a very good touch), towels were lovely. There was also a hairdryer (that I couldn't find but my husband did), a safe, a well stocked tea tray, a tv with good channel selection, room service was also available although we did not take it up. Breakfast is available which you can book after you check in through the reception, again not something we did as we wanted to try a couple of local places. I would definitely be back, the staff were lovely and accommodating, well worth a stay!

Again this hotel more than matched our anticipation. Although renovation work was going on we were still greeted by happy smiling reception staff. Our room had obviously been renovated and it was lovely. Only down comment is why do you not replace the biscuits on the tea tray? Breakfast up to its usual high standard and nice to see a bit of renovation had been done here as well. My only criticism of the hotel is their website. We had to use the balance of a voucher my wife had received as a present, there is no facility on the booking page to input the voucher number. When I contacted the hotel they were quoting the normal price not the website special price. After some discussion we were eventually able to book over the phone at the website price. Small suggestion to the hotel is put a voucher box on your website for bookings. However that did not detract form an enjoyable 2 night stay.

François M, Reims, France 27/02/2018

When arriving at 13:00 at the hotel, we have disturbed a lot of workers doing works inside the hotel. The receptionist told us "Don't be afraid there is noise, but only between 9:00 and 17:00" !!! Our room was available at 15:00, so we have decided to begin the visit of Edinburgh. At 17:00, we came back to the hotel. I told the receptionist : "You should mention the works in progress on your website". Rather than apologize, she answered "You forgot to sign this paragraph where you accept to pay 200 £ if you smoke in your room". Fortunately for us, we had planed a lot of visits, more the match at Murrayfield Stadium. But it is a shame for this hotel and a pity for the Best Western company...

Stayed at the Bruntsfield hotel for a night at the weekend, car park is small and is on a first come basis but there is plenty of parking on the road outside which you have to pay for.

Stayed round the corner from here but decided to treat ourselves on our last evening by having a meal wish we hadn't bothered. Ordered crispy lemon chicken to start which was just a soggy mess. Egg mayo on white cake as egg mayo on brown. At no point were we asked if everything was ok. When they finally came to take away the half eaten food and I complained all I got was an “o”. After waiting 15 mins for the option of dessert we gave up and asked for the bill where a grand total of £2 was deducted. Sent an email to them on Monday morning and still no apology by Thursday.

We had another fabulous stay at the Bruntsfield. Lovely room - good-sized, clean and all the usual complementaries. Breakfast was very good as was the meal in the Brasserie. Perfectly located for a weekend trip to the capital. Will certainly be back.

Excellent service, spacious room, pleasantly decorated. Great choices for breakfast with many healthy options, including vegetarian haggis, as well as the usual meaty cooked type. All in a nice part of town. Home made short bread biscuits an added bonus. Thoroughly recommended and will planning to stay there again.

We stayed here for my husband's 50th birthday weekend in Edinburgh and I couldn't be more pleased with the value for money the Bruntsfield provided. I had made them aware of our celebration and we were greeted with a birthday card and petit fours in our room. A very nice touch, thank you! The room (111) was spacious and featured a large bed, separate seating area and a huge bathroom with separate bath and shower. I would like to congratulate the unsung heros/heroines of the hotel trade (the cleaners) who obviously take care and a great deal of pride in their work. No smeary mirrors, cobwebs or dusty skirting boards here! Breakfast was included in our room rate but is charged at £14.50 pp if you book room only. It is worth it! Fresh fruit, cheeses, pastries which taste delicious, yoghurt, cereals, toast....and a cooked breakfast which is cooked to order. I would highly recommend the Bruntsfield. It ticked all of our boxes: location; car park; room size; reception staff; waitresses; beautifully clean and a fabulous breakfast. Definitely one to return to! Tip: Book direct with the hotel - you may get additional perks.

Glenn K, Morpeth, United Kingdom 21/01/2018

I visited the hotel with my wife as a surprise for my birthday. On arrival we found that the room we had booked had been upgraded which was a very nice touch. When we got into the room, we had been left some nice little cakes and I received a birthday card. How lovely is that? All the staff were fantastic throughout our visit and special mention must go to the cleaners of our room (111). The room was immaculate during our stay and we could not find anything to complain about. Reception staff were very helpful and always available. Breakfast was lovely and gave us a really good start to the day. Only drawback is the parking. We were lucky to find a spot but you may struggle if you don't arrive early. All in all though, an excellent visit, an excellent hotel, excellent staff and I will not hesitate to stay at this hotel again when I am next in Edinburgh.

Ann H, Aberdeen, United Kingdom 15/01/2018

The hotel was well situated with regards to the city centre. The room was large and the bed comfortable. The temperature in the room was perfect. The road outside the hotel was very busy, but by keeping the windows closed and the curtains closed we had a good night sleep. The breakfast was excellent. My only complaint with this hotel and the reason I scored average was because of the staff. We both felt, the staff (not all, I hasten to add) were not very friendly or indeed helpful. They were a little "stand offish" and this made our stay less than perfect. I would not return to this hotel, there are other hotels in Edinburgh with more accomodating staff.

Good hotel, very comfortable stay, room large, well appointed and v.clean, great night's sleep and friendly welcome. Only thing I was a bit disappointed with was size of bath, which wasn't full size. I'd booked by phone, partly to help the hotel avoid an agency fee and specifically to check if the bathroom actually had a proper bath, and was reassured it did. I was really looking forward to a morning soak, but couldn't have it in such a small tub. Oh the first world problems we grumble about, eh?

Stayed for 2 nights between xmas and new year. This hotel is excellent and very high standard. I paid 95 quid and felt it was great value considering the location to the city centre. I parked smack outside of the front door, the lobby area is lovely, the room was lovely and couldn't fault it. It is a good 20 minutes walk to Princes street. I would recommend and will return again. Final thing is that there is a great bar downstairs which serves food - we ait here twice and it was stunning.

Arrived at The Best Western Bruntsfield just after midnight and hadn't booked, (delayed flight into Edinburgh). We were still accommodated and got to bed soon after arriving. Nice enough room, bed quite squashy for myself but horses for courses etc. Clean and fresh apart from the two body hairs in the shower, one on shower curtain, one in bath. There were 5 pieces of furniture in this room and 2 chairs and a table which almost cramped the room, but I guess if you were staying for a week they would come in handy. Checkout at 11am, but before that we had breakfast and all I can say is Wow. Lovely continental breakfast, the fruit salad looked amazing and so fresh, the ham was a tasty delight and the cooked breakfast (table ordered, not buffet) was an absolute winner. Very attentive staff and Lewis our waiter was polite, professional and very accommodating. Front of house was smart and welcoming, great to see the Manager (I presume he was) walking around and inspecting everything. Fresh lilies in the foyer made the lounge smell lovely and brought a smile to one's face. I would definitely stay here again.

jeffsmith177, Bury St. Edmunds, United Kingdom 03/01/2018

We went to edinburgh for a short three day break. This hotel is absolutely lovely. We checked in and the girl on reception had a few people in front of us and called for some help. Check in took literally mins which after a 10 hr drive was very welcome. The young lady was very helpfull. The hotel is a grand old place with a nice charm. We had breakfast included for one morning which was superb. We would have loved it for the three days but at £15 per head thats £30 for what we had was a poached egg on toast and a coffee. There is a large selection and a lovely breakfast menu and fresh items but you can really only east so much. If it was £8 you would go there everyday. The stand out thing for us was the room was lovely and warm and the best bed ive ever slept in. We had an upgraded room and it was fab 14 i think it was. I stay in hotels for work and am away mon-fri nearly all year so have stayed in countless hotels and this one is well recommended. Parking can be tight but once we parked we never moved the car. Book this its great and my wife said the homemade short read in reception was the best she had ever had. Will definately return

jasonaP7894NU, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 28/12/2017

I booked the Bruntsfield BW at a tough time for me, with my girlfriend having left the country and feeling a bit alone in the city. One of her parting gifts to me was the money for a hotel room with a bathtub, as I have really missed having one in my new flat (which only has a tiny shower). I mentioned this in the comments when booking the hotel and the room I was given was beyond my wildest dreams - I presume they must have upgraded me without saying, as there's no way this was purely a "standard" double. It had a massive bathroom with a huge free-standing tub in the middle. It made my day and I couldn't have been happier. I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone, and I'm hopefully going to make this a semi-regular thing now whenever I need a good soak!

This is the second time we've visited Edinburgh and we chose to return to this hotel. It is a little out of the centre but not too far. Easy to get the bus into town or grab a taxi for about a £5 or if you've got the energy and it's not too cold or wet about a 20min walk. It's a really cosy, welcoming, just lovely hotel. The staff are so friendly and will do everything they can to help you. The room was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Has all you need, toiletries, tea & coffee station, Tv, Hairdryer, plenty of room and plug sockets by sides of the bed, cleaned and fresh towels every day. The bed was so comfortable, I'm pregnant and not comfortable at night but I slept so well here. I loved the little touches of complimentary lemon water and shortbreads in the lobby. I will definitely return to this hotel next time we visit.

A massive, stone building in traditional, Scottish style but tastefully modernised, the Bruntsfield Hotel provides spacious, comfortable rooms and a friendly service. Fabulous breakfast in very modern dining area overlooking patio. Only downside were some rude, grumpy guests complaining about the lack of taxis! Well done to the staff for keeping their cool.

"Short Break in Edinburgh"

Ross R, Stafford, United Kingdom 29/11/2017

My wife and I decided to visit the Edinburgh Xmas Market we chose the Best Western Plus in Brunts field for two reasons. The first was that it was close to our sons flat as he's in Edinburgh doing his Masters Degree. The second reason is that we have used Best Western Hotels lots of times all over Europe and the UK when Holidaying as the quality of the hotels are always good, the staff always pleasant helpful and nothing seems to much trouble for them if you need something doing or just a bit of help or advice. This hotel is on the main bus route into Edinburgh main streets like Princess Street or if you want to get to the Royal Mile and Edinbugh Castle. We chequed into the hotel and were made to feel at home straight away by the reception staff and Rod the Manager. We had traveled up on our Motorcycle which we use for most of our holidays all over the UK and Europe when we arrived Rod let us park our bike under cover in a safe gated area which was great. We tend to look at hotels with onsite parking or underground parking anyway just for extra security and lots of the Best Western Hotels have under ground car parks or secure area parking. The room we had booked was on the first floor and was an executive room which is slightly larger than average with that bit more room which we like. The breakfast is served in the bisque Resturant in the basement, its light airy nicely decorated as is all the rest of the Hotel and there is a Garden area which would be great to sit in in the summer months on a night or in the day if your just relaxing and having a drink from the bar. There is a lot of food choice for breakfast Continental or cooked so there is something for everyone. The staff are great and very pleasant always chatty and smiling and very professional and all seem to realy enjoy there jobs its just a great atmosphere. As per usual the Best Western was top notch in staff decor and quality we have never yet been to a bad one which says it all for this Hotel Chain. Once again the next time we visit Edinburgh we will book in here if there not full and we can get a room well done and special thanks to Rod, chees mate.

After our unfortunate event last year, see previous years post, we decided to head back as we loved the location and the room overlooking the park. We booked eary in the year to ensure we got a room. Once again the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had something for everyone, with a nice range of cereals, toppings and breads as well as a fully cooked breakfast. The location is great for walking into town, if reasonably fit, passing some nice eating places and pubs on the way. It overlooks a nice park, Sadly we were let down by the room, which although spotless, was on the ground floor next to the bins and where the staff went for a smoke. Needless to say we were woken at night by noise and on Monday and Tuesday morning at 7am by the binmen and delivery drivers. When discussed with staff the helpfully said they would see if they could relocate us, but on checking were unable to do so. Do not let this small point put you off boking here just try and avoid room 34.

UkOma, UK 15/11/2017

The hotel is generally quite old fashioned in its decor but comfortable. Our large room on the ground floor was clearly for disabled guests, with ramp, rails etc but that wasn't a problem, as it was very spacious with a huge bed and large bathroom. It is a short walk of twenty minutes or so into the centre and on a bus route and we managed to park our car, but that was lucky as parking space is limited. Breakfast was especially nice as apart from the usual buffet they offer freshly cooked items to order, which is a nice change- we had delicious scrambled eggs. The only let down was the bar where we went for a night cap and had the smallest Bailey's I was ever offered for £4. Little four person diner style bays with plastic seats did nothing to cheer us up and we left pretty quickly.

Third hotel this week, on a bit of a trip, and this is the one hotel I don't want to leave! Lovely room. Warm, comfortable, quiet, tastefully decorated. Superb bathroom - great shower pressure and temperature, luxury toiletries. Lovely lounges with plenty of comfy sofas. Superb breakfast - comprehensive cold buffet to start, then a great hot breakfast cooked to order (with plenty of options to choose from). A bit outside the city - but busses run every 10mins or so (£1.60 each way, or £4 for a day ticket which covers all the city busses and the tram). The attention to detail really shows. The friendly staff at breakfast and in the bar ask your name, not your room number, and then remember and use your name. And another simple but lovely touch - a table in the reception area with chilled water and home-made shortbread, and in the morning there's coffee and tea to which you can help yourself. Don't want to leave. Hope to come back soon!

itripney, edinburgh 06/11/2017

We had a family reception in the Cardoon Suite for my son and his wife who were married abroad a few weeks previously. It was easy to set up, with Fiona being friendly and flexible in tailoring arrangements to our needs .We also had harpist Sarah Macneil who played beautifully and added a touch of refinement to proceedings before it was time for the disco to start On the evening itself, the suite looked lovely - beautifully decorated with white tablecloths and elegant furnishings. The evening ran smoothly, and we lost count of the number of guests who remarked positively on the atmosphere and facilities. The bar staff looked after us well and couldn't have been more helpful, with the catering being well laid out and tasty.The final touch was a lovely room for the bride and groom with a four poster bed. I have to say that the cost of the evening was surprisingly reasonable, and well worth considering for family events of less than 90 people.

"We thoroughly recommend The Bruntsfield Hotel"

Janme57, Surrey, United Kingdom 04/11/2017

We chose the Bruntsfield hotel as it was a short distance from the centre of Edinburgh. I can thoroughly recommend staying here as from the greeting on arrival to when we left the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. We were upgraded from an executive room so we had a lovely view of the park at the front of the hotel and the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. We had a long journey before arriving so decided to eat in the Brassiere and we were not disappointed. The food is all freshly cooked and the steak my husband had was one of the best he had tasted and my salmon kebabs were delicious too. Breakfast was served until 10am so plenty of time for a lay-in and gosh what a selection and again the hot food was freshly cooked. If we ever come to Edinburgh again we would certainly stay here and would recommend everyone else to too!

We had our wedding on October 21st 2017 at the Bruntsfield hotel and we couldn't have wished for a better weekend! All our guest we made to feel welcome and relaxed by the helpful friendly staff. Our wedding day was everything we wanted and nothing was to much trouble. The rooms were fantastic and the food was delicious! We would thoroughly recommend having a wedding here or just to stay for a few days. All our friends and family said it was the best wedding venue they ever had been to.

User 01/11/2017

Absolutely fantastic stay. My husband and I have just got home from a 2 night stay here. We'd booked an executive room as it was a treat for our wedding anniversary. When we arrived we were told we'd been given an upgrade to a superior room. Brilliant!! The room itself was fabulous. Huge room, huge comfy bed, big bath in the middle of the bathroom, his and hers sinks. Who wouldn't love a little bit of luxury on a child free weekend!!!! The staff were very friendly and helpful. We came back to the room at one point to find a selection of complimentary cakes and an anniversary card from the hotel staff. Lots of selection available for breakfast. It was just a perfect stay with lots of added extras. Would most definitely stay here again. Thank you!!

Stayed here taking advantage of the triple the face value of Tesco club card vouchers. Excellent staff on reception who were all welcoming and very helpful. Prepared to take the time to chat and offer their opinions on things to do in Edinburgh. Free WiFi so always able to connect. Room was spacious, comfortable and clean with ample storage space. Breakfast was everything you would expect and the portions were plentiful and quality was high. Restaurant staff too were only too pleased to be of service. A number of buses available nearby for a 15 minute ride to Princes Street. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Derek B, Faversham, United Kingdom 30/10/2017

This is a lovely hotel just 20 mins walk, or a 10 minute bus ride, from the city centre. The nicely decorated room had all you'd need (no air-con but there was a fan - sufficient for Edinburgh weather) and the kingsize bed was very comfortable. Staff were attentive and very helpful. A minor drawback was at breakfast (which was excellent) as the waiting staff seemed a little disorganised and we had to ask for someone to take our breakfast order at every other meal.

A first class hotel in which every element of their service is quality and professional. The room was very quiet and spacious and was maintained to a consistent high standard by their housekeeping team, thank you. The bistro restaurant produced fine food, quality ingredients and served by a great team who were very friendly with out being intrusive. The breakfast offered a wide choice and the cooked Scottish breakfast certainly set us up for the day. Great Chefs.

Alan M, Runcorn, United Kingdom 17/10/2017

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and are platinum card members and on arrival you may be offered a room upgrade ,sadly on this occasion there wasn't one available. welcome gift for platinum card holders wasn't forth coming either. I had previously payed for our accommodation online, so when I was asked to swipe my card that I payed with the young man on the front desk debited my card by £30. I questioned this and he said it is just to cover any room service or purchases from the bar and restaurant and that it won't be debited if don't use the facilities mentioned. How wrong was I . Mentioned this at checkout and they said they will refund my money. The room : 212 the pillows are flat and I was going to use the spare pillows on top of the wardrobe but they smelt musty. Oh the shampoo in the room wasn't replaced on the second day. Overall not a great experience, stayed at this hotel in total about 17 nights over several years. What a shame, I used to recommend this hotel to family and friends. I would recommend a gold elite card by IHG group..... more often than not, room upgrades for showing loyalty and two free water bottles for each night of your stay., not one bottle between both guests for the whole duration of your stay. Hope this was helpful to any one considering this hotel

Arthur P, Chicago, Illinois 14/10/2017

We chose this hotel to be closer to the airport on our return to Edinburgh from the countryside. But it might have been chosen for its crafty rehabbing of a period building, lending charm to the rooms; its classy touches in comfort, decor, and service; pleasant dining bistro with patio, and wonderful location by an old Links park,(in season) par 3 golf lawn, and a huge stretch of meadows with walking paths and every kind of activity on its commons. Some smart bistros popping up in the neighborhood--we liked The Apartment. As a comfortable last-night indulgence before flying home, couldn't have been better for us.

The accommodations are very nice. The staff is excellent, helpful and knowledgeable ! We had the bed and breakfast plan. The Traditional Scottish breakfast with many other additions was marvelous. The food was delicious and plentiful. We also had several other meals in the restaurant which were also delicious. The only suggestion I would make would be grab bars in the tub/shower and maybe more charging areas- but possibly we carry too many electronics with us. This was our third stay - just a wonderful hotel

Extremely good hotel, all the staff are very friendly, helpful and cheerful. Location of the hotel is very good only a 20 minute walk to Princess Street and very peaceful through the night. Spotlessly clean, our room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. Thank you to all the staff especially Iain the deputy manager who dealt with our only one little complaint very professionally. Look forward to our return.

"Comfortable, excellent value for money"

Donald F, Dingwall, United Kingdom 05/10/2017

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. My room 209 was large, comfortable and very quiet; it looks over gardens at the back of the hotel. My room was lived in. It didn't feel like a four star hotel room. It was very good value for money - much better value than the nearby Novotel, Doubletree or Sheraton. I paid £250 (£100 for the Monday and £150 for the Tuesday) including breakfast. I had breakfast in the restaurant on the first morning - the service was OK, the waiting staff didn't strike me as having been trained. The food was OK - fine but nothing special. I had breakfast in my room on the second morning. Despite putting my order card on the door before the cut-off time it was not collected. I had to call reception in the morning - they then collected the card and delivered my breakfast within the timescale I'd requested. I appreciated this. Again the food was unremarkable- although my breakfast included toast, I wasn't given anything to put on it other than butter. It wasn't presented with any flair (unlike The Sheraton) but given the price difference, it was fine. This is not a good place to stay if you have mobility issues - there are lots of steps, the steps at the front of the hotel are very steep. The location of the hotel is excellent for a business or a leisure. Although I didn't eat in the restaurant or bar on this visit I have eaten in both in the past. The food is fine - unimaginative but fine. Given the value this hotel provides it is going to be my hotel of choice when staying in Edinburgh on future business trips.

The Best Western Bruntsfield Hotel provides plenty of space in their rooms and an excellent breakfast. The staff is very good.

There are some very good restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel, so there are plenty of choices.

The BW+ Bruntsfield is close enough to everything, yet comfortably spaced away from the madding crowds. The room was spacious+clean+comfortable, the hotel staff pleasant and helpful, great breakfast buffet and to-order cooking, cozy bar...everything was great. But let me get back to location. The entire town is within a 30-minute walk of the place and you WILL want to walk...because it's what people do in Edinburgh and the walking is so pleasant. Going along the fringes of a series of greens and parks that start right across the street from the Bruntsfield will get you most of the way to the castle, Holyrood Park, or Dynamic Earth. Great dining choices are within 10-minutes walk or, if you want to venture farther, the University area or the Royal Mile.

Staff are all very warm and friendly and looked after us all so well. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was very good and it is nice to be able to order hot food from the table rather then have a buffet. Feedback from the group was also positive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel as it is excellent in so many ways. Thank you.

We stayed in October 2016 and place has his own charm. 1. Central location 2. Quieter place 3. Market is in walking distance 4. Parking is small but accommodating 5. Public transport is available as bus stop is in front 6. Places to visit within Edinburgh are not too far 7. Most of the restaurants are nearby within walking distance with all kind of cuisine 8. Quite few Indian restaurants are there but managed by people from Bangladesh so bit of different taste 9. Just opp to park 10. Go for rooms on ground floor 11. People are nice, they prepared a small cake for our anniversary Nice place to stay and not too costly.

My husband and I arrived late but the customer service was still excellent. We unfortunately only stayed for one night but it was a lovely experience. The room was beautiful and overlooked the park across the road. It was very quiet and comfortable. We also used the restaurant and the service and staff were exceptional. The room would have been perfect for a family as it had two bedrooms, which offered bunk beds in one room and a king sized bed in the main room. The bed was comfortable, room and it had a kettle with all the services you need. We also asked if we could extend our departure time and they accommodated us without charging extra.

Colm C, Edinburgh 22/09/2017

I lived locally for many years but on a recent trip from my home in Sydney had cause to need accommodation. This hotel was not my first pick, but due to high prices in early September it caught my attention. How wrong was I not to have it as first pick and will do in future. From the welcome at reception to the genuine ‘good morning and how are you?' I received each day at breakfast, it was a great no hassle stay. Breakfast is great because unlike most places the hot breakfast is cooked to order from a great Scottish menu, rather than the usual decaying breakfast in heated buffet style. Yes the corridors to rooms are a slight challenge to navigate, but that is my only downside. Internet was fast and free. It's also located in walking distance of most things and walking through The Meadows which is always a treat. If you are a coffee snob there are few great places nearby like Artizan Roast. Love it and will be back.

buckscookie, Buckinghamshire 16/09/2017

Stayed here 4 nights with a group. My room (15) overlooking the rear garden was quiet and whilst a little small if a double was perfect for my single occupancy. Very comfortable bed, soft linens, bathroom ammenities and tea/coffee tray restocked daily. Staff are helpful, cheerful and willing, particularly the reception, bar and Bisque Bistro staff who organised at the last minute, a 3 course dinner for 28 of us. Great breakfast especially the hot cooked choice - loved the haggis!! Brill too to have a complementary apple or shortbread biscuit from the reception area. I'd have perhaps liked a fridge in my room to keep water or fresh milk cool, but perhaps it would've then been noisy. Quiet ground floor lounge areas much appreciated for those who like to read or simply chat, away from th bar. Very well positioned for easy walking downhill to Princes Street or catch a bus right outside. Several local restaurants close by.

BeaBC, Toronto, Canada 13/09/2017

This one is a nice surprise! Sometimes when you book something ya just have to go "ugh" at the doorway. Not here. It's got some gracious old-town stone styling and nice rooms equipped with everything. The staff is friendly, and it's not in the middle of the crazy hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile area. But it's close enough to walk and also have other cool attractions nearby. There are lots of stairs and I was on a floor in between elevator floors. So you do have to be prepared to lug your stuff. There is a ramp in the basement where the dining area is, if you'd like to avoid the stairs at the front entrance. Don't forget about the charming Morningside area, which is in the direction away from the Edinburgh Castle, where most tourists go. I recommend a pub called The Canny Man, and I think it dates back to the 1700's! Lots of charm!

My partner and I stayed here during a trip to take my son to Edinburgh Uni this weekend and had a lovely experience. I thought the reception staff and service were very good; loved the ambience of the place which was spacious, high ceilinged and whisper quiet; the long, deep bath; the very comfy bed and feather pillows; the breakfast fresh fruit and berry compote and a highlight was the music played at breakfast: Lorde's Writer in the Dark which was somehow perfect for the setting! Two minor points: my partner found the shower erratic; I asked if berry tea was available at breakfast and was told that it wasn't, only to then find it on the table in the lobby! We will definitely return.

rybblevalley, Yorkshire, England 04/09/2017

Had a lovely weekend up in Edinburgh at the end of the Fringe. This is nicely located in a pleasant neighbourhood with good bars and restaurants, with a pretty easy 15-20-minute walk to the Royal Mile. I'd suggest it's a great area to aim for if you're not so keen on being right in the main drag with the crowds and the noise. For me, the hotel is rather dated, particularly in the rooms and corridors. There's plenty of plastering and recarpeting to do, but clearly the maintenance budget isn't stretching to this just yet. The bed was very comfy, and the room size ok, but the bathroom was tired with mould starting to creep into the grouting. One bug-bear I have is with hotels which claim to be 4-star, and the level of amenities they offer. There's no gym or pool here, and I know they're not requirements for 4-star status, but in order to justify the rating, they should provide basics such as fridges in each room, and certainly free bottles of drinking water in the rooms (not the single help-yourself jug of water hanging around all day in the lobby - that doesn't count). Breakfast was good, particularly the cooked-to-order food, though the continental options are rather limited, and the bread rolls are very poor. Again, not good enough for a 4-star property. The details are important. I'd probably stay here again, but I'd first like to see whether they'd updated the rooms first. There are, after all, so many options in Edinburgh.

I'm a regular visitor to Edinburgh as my daughter lives in this beautiful city. I've stayed in several places and the Bruntsfield is by far my favourite. I always recommend when friends ask me where to stay. This hotel is consistently excellent; it's very comfortable and clean (homely), with friendly staff (nothing is too much trouble). Thank you Team Jean for a relaxing and efficient breakfast service - there was plenty of choice and everything was fresh and well presented. Five of us had dinner in the restaurant and everything was cooked to perfection - we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The menu has recently been updated and offers a good selection of dishes. The hotel is in a great location approx. 20 minute walk to the castle. There's a lovely park across the road and it's quieter than hotels right in the centre. There's a bus stop 2 minutes away which takes you straight into the city centre. (If you get on a Lothian bus, you can ask for a £4 day ticket which gives you unlimited travel on Lothian buses for the day, it also includes the tram (excluding the airport). Thanks everyone for another great stay and hope to see you in December.

"Stayed here for the third time"

Obderver, London 28/08/2017

Stayed here for the third time, which is I suppose a recommendation in itself. I was in an Executive Double room on the ground floor, bed and breakfast. The room was fine, and there were no problems at all. Breakfast was good and served promptly (you order anything cooked from your table). It is about a twenty minute brisk walk to the Royal Mile across Bruntsfield Links and the Meadows, which provides a bit of exercise and gets you away from the crowds during the Festival.

Kath C, Dunstable, United Kingdom 24/08/2017

Comfortable room with good facilities and a great buffet breakfast offering a good range of choices - the scrambled egg and smoked salmon went down pretty well. A warm welcome from reception and friendly service from the restaurant staff made this a very pleasant stay. Within walking distance of city centre but well-served by local buses, too.

"Short break to see the Military Tattoo"

roy_briscoe, Chichester, United Kingdom 21/08/2017

Nice Clean hotel in good proximity to the City Centre, 10-15 min walk away or good public transport links bus stop 100m from hotel. The staff are all friendly and make you very welcome. Soul, James and Kira in the restaurant were fantastic, good service with a smile and joke, but at the same time very polite, a hard balancing trick but they get it right---very appropriate for the group we were with. The food was of a good standard, we ate in the hotel each night so must have been good as there are plenty of other places to eat out. All rooms cleaned daily, new towels etc can't fault them reception staff very helpful, booked taxis to airport,etc nothing to much trouble for them. 2 managers again very friendly and approachable, can't fault the service in any way Plan your trip when the Tattoo is on you won't regret going its a fabulous show, we were lucky the fringe festival was on also, some of the street entertainment on the Royal Mile was fantastic. If you've got tickets to the Tattoo go early as you still have to queue to get in, security taken seriously, so we felt safe throughout. The Massed bands of pipes and drummers were brilliant, but our favourite was the Royal Marine band----best in the world. Awesome trip Made all the better by the stay in the hotel. Thanks to all the staff especially, Soul, James and Kira.

Retiredrewired, Portugal 18/08/2017

We stayed 4 nights during hectic Fringe/Tattoo August. This hotel is well run, with a comfy quiet room, an easy 30 min walk to the city center and an incredible restaurant, called Bisque. We were blown away by the quality of food, a pleasant surprise at a hotel. I would stay here again easily, with cabs readily available for a few £ when we were too tired to walk back, it was a nice respite from the craziness. The park directly across the street is lovely and the staff helpful. No place is cheap in Edinburgh during August, but the Bruntsfield Hotel is a good value.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bruntsfield. Can't believe I forgot to write it up on TripAdvisor, but better late than never. I was in Edinburgh August 2016 with my mom and four siblings for the tattoo and some sightseeing. We had our own car, we walked and we took taxis, we were ok with the distances. The service at the desk was magnificent, you did everything to make us feel welcomed! The rooms were great adn we slept well, no street noise except the tattoo fireworks! The pub and restaurant were great; once again super service, and the food was really nice. Yes, it's pricey, but I felt we got that luxury feeling with that price. I would love to stay here again!

Lovely room overlooking the park with very comfortable beds. Staff very helpful and friendly . Loved the walk into the heart of Edinburgh and the Castle. Not far from Edinburgh museum and a good choice of cafes , restuarants on the doorstep if you dont want to walk or ride into the centre. Food at the hotel was good too.

Myra J, Evanston, United States 06/08/2017

We highly recommend this hotel. It is not fancy, but comfortable, clean and in a less congested area of Edinburgh near The Meadows. The breakfast offers a variety of choices. We've stayed here a number of times in the past couple years while visiting our children and grandchildren. It is close to some local shops and you can walk or catch a bus to Princess Street. I recommend asking for a room that is not overlooking the street, since it's an area where a lot of students live.

magicmags99, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 06/08/2017

I live near the Bruntsfield Hotel in the 3rd floor apartment. At the end of June I was hosting a large family gathering but as my mother was disabled she could not manage the stairs. So I booked a room for her in the Bruntsfield Hotel. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful - they really looked out for her and made her stay so comfortable and pleasant. The following morning we wanted to use the residents lounge so all 13 of us could all be together with my mother. We also wanted to have a surprise birthday cake for one of my nieces. The hotel made a member of staff available to us for the whole morning, brought in the birthday cake, provided plates and cutlery all at no extra charge. Really we could not have had better service - and all done with a smile. Also at breakfast, the waiter noticed my mother had difficulty walking and immediately got everything she wanted for her so she did not need to get things from the buffet herself. The staff at this hotel truly were wonderful. And, the room was nicely appointed and the beds were very comfortable.

"Bold but boring Bruntsfield"

Thomas D, Ipswich, United Kingdom 05/08/2017

I booked this venue for business through a hotel comparison website and I must say for the price I was a little taken back by the venue. It's a very bold and vast building located in a very pleasant part of the city of Edinburgh, however the hotel lacked so much. I've become more and more disheartened with Best Western's of recent years and this was exception. For a very striking and impressive building BW have done nothing with it. The entrance is far from inviting and the carpet looks like it's been down somewhere near on 30 years. The room was spacious and clean however slightly tired. Whilst I appreciate they appeared to have tried to keep the venue in the old style of the building this isn't working too well in my opinion and definitely needs a make over. The reception more than ever is tired and not inviting and for the price this venue is not worth it. I'm often lead to believe that if a venue is vast in size it will offer a lot however on this occasion I was mistaken.

"Hotel is nice, front desk not so much"

revuer8, Virginia 27/07/2017

We had no problems with the hotel facilities: the location was convenient, the rooms were large, the beds were comfortable, our bathroom was huge and bright with double sinks, a clawfoot tub, shower and lots of space. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. If that had been our only experience I would have ranked this hotel much higher. Unfortunately our check-in experience with the front desk was far from pleasant. We had booked our trip with a tour company and had prepaid for three rooms for two nights each. At check-in when we were presented with a bill for the full amount we explained that the rooms had been prepaid. The clerk had no record of that and went into a back office to check with the powers that be. Soon an irate woman came out yelling that "its not the way it works" and that we would have to pay upfront. She was literally yelling and angry, telling us that's not how our tour company works. They made us give them a credit card and our passport. We tried to calmly explain again that we had prepaid for everything and a simple phone call to our tour director would straighten all this out. After several frustrating minutes of her lecturing us, another woman finally came out and said it was a mix up and that they had the wrong party. Ours was prepaid. We received a simple "oops, sorry" from the yelling woman. Can't imagine that's how they intended to treat this "other party" whoever they were. Anyway, not a great start to what could have been a nice welcome to Edinburgh.

This is not the standard we strive to achieve and we have investigated the events you explained in your review and agree that this should have been handled more professionally.

I stayed in a single room on the first floor and although it was at the front of the hotel overlooking the main road it was very quiet. The room was small but perfectly adequate with high ceilings and big windows. The ensuite could probably do with a bit of updating particularly the shower but it was fit for purpose and clean.Didn't need the trouser press ! but would have found a hairdryer useful ( I'm sure one would have been provided if I had asked). Staff friendly and helpful- giving directions and bus details. Location useful for the city centre and immediate locality had nice shops and cafes.

Before we even arrived for our second stay at this great hotel, I was given wonderfully efficient and friendly service from Angela on the telephone as she answered my queries. She remembered me from our first stay (where she had made my big birthday special ) and she could not have been more helpful! Then when we arrived, the desk staff were also polite and gave us a warm welcome. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The dining room was airy and we enjoyed the view onto the garden as well as the superb breakfast. We especially enjoyed the lovely fresh fruit and the excellent cooked breakfast. The lounge where we had tea one afternoon and drinks one evening was quiet and relaxing. We told one of the Managers, Ian Henderson, who had some good advice on restaurants in the area, that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be back again very soon!

Originally booked a double room but as the date got closer I needed a twin and we got one without any hassle. I was up early 04:30 before breakfast, and I needed to get my nutrition sorted as I was racing in a half ironman that day. All I needed was a microwave as I brought breakfast with me, not a problem said the night porter I'll even make you up a breakfast bag for the two of us. Room was spot on, parking was limited but free, and the full Scottish breakfast the following day was worth the wait. Staff in the bar were more than helpful and very good at making me feel welcome. All in all a great stay, I'll return here soon. Thanks to all the staff.

We stayed two lovely nights at the Bruntsfield. The location is fantastic! We walked to the castle, to Arthur's Seat and all over the city from the hotel. We ate dinner here as well as the breakfast buffet and both were adequate. Nothing super fancy, but good food and a reasonable selection. The room was big and quite pretty. The bed was large and really comfortable. The building is on a busy street but it was quiet through the night. The staff are friendly and helpful. Overall a nice hotel with a good location and comfortable rooms.

"Boutique hotel that fills the bill"

User 30/06/2017

Situated about 15-20 minutes walk from central Edinburgh, this rambling place appears to have been converted from a row of dwellings. It is just a little isolated from this lovely city's good life. That said, there is a pleasant park across the road, and there are plenty of buses and taxis. Our room was spacious and although not exactly luxurious was well appointed including a four-poster bed, armchairs, and, through generous windows, a pleasant outlook over leafy inner city back yards marred slightly by some scaffolding. A large dove resident nearby cooed regularly. The bathroom was a good size and up to date in design. The hotel has a basement bar-bistro with rather average fare. This doubles as a breakfast room which opens out onto a pretty courtyard. Breakfast includes a tasty buffet as well as a range of cooked Caledonian specialties to order. Staff are efficient and friendly - pretty quick check-in and check-out. All in all a very Scottish experience and a good deal

We stayed at Bruntsfield Hotel (Best Western) for three nights...it was clean, tidy and quiet. The rooms were adequate and without fridge and air-condition. However, there is a fan in the room and a member of staff provided us with ice. There's a kettle to make your own morning cuppa. The hotel is easy access into town either by bus or taxi (ten minutes to Waverley Station). Nice hotel and pleasant staff - it served the purpose - we were there to explore the sights of beautiful Edinburgh...

Only gripe would possibly be the lack of parking; you've got to get their at a decent time to guarantee a space in the hotel car park, but there's loads of on-street parking so it's not that much of an issue.

Hotel is on a main road into Edinburgh and has parking out front.. First come, first served. Some steps up into the hotel and some stairs throughout the hotel so a little tricky with luggage (no assistance), but lifts in the hotel to the main floors. Our room was a lovely back room with a view across to Edinburgh castle and of the back garden.bed was very comfortable, there was a desk, tv, tea and coffee. No fridge. You need to drive or catch the bus into the city (10 mins) as too far to walk. Dinner was lovely in the restaurant and breakfast was very nice. Good continental buffet and then cooked to order breakfast. Free wifi throughout.

Booked via an online booking site. Arrived earlier than check in time but was able to leave the car and go for a wander. Car parking is limited and on a first come first served basis. Opposite a lovely park which we sat in after dinner. Walked into the city centre, a good half mile but on a sunny day it didn't matter as we weren't in a rush. Checked in to a lovely room on the ground floor, huge, comfy bed, lovely bathroom with nice decent sized freebies of shampoo etc bath and shower. Ate dinner in the basement brasserie which was nice, not the best meal of our week long trip but OK. Lovely lady on reception called ANGELA, great sense of humour and very helpful, thank you Angela.

I was here on business as attending a two day meeting at EICC (15 mins walk or jump a bus). Staff were helpful and informed. I went for a run as Bruntsfield Links are opposite and contiguous to The Meadows (road between); a nice place. This hotel would be brilliant with a gym. Breakfast excellent, staff were excellent and breakfast was punctual given we were attending a meeting at 9 am.

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff at reception, bar and restaurant. Decor in room could do with some modernising and has no AC, but bathroom looks very modern with separate bath and shower units. Some scaffolding around the outside, but this did not cause any issues.

Stayed three nights here and was very pleased with our accommodations. This is NOT a cookie cutter, sterile, mass produced hotel. It may be affiliated with Best Western, but it is decidedly unique. The room we had, Nr 144, was extremely comfortable and a great value. Clean, quaint, quiet, well maintained, this hotel is a couple mile walk to Edinburgh Castle and Royal Mile, and is priced accordingly, meaning not hugely expensive. We stayed on recommendation of our niece, and we were not disappointed. We'll definitely be back!!

I reviewed this hotel in 2013. Stayed again in 2014 & 2015. My opinions not changed. Still very good. Won't give many places 5 out of 5. Great room this time. Bigger than normal I'm sure. Nice in side street. So not overlooking park, but away from traffic, so could open windows. Rooms can get hot in summer. Afraid we are light sleepers, so room fan not great for us. We don't need a disabled room, but do wish hotels would give bath c/w showers more hand grips. It would ease access for more senior guests. BW Bruntsfield not alone here. But rooms still clean. Staff still helpful. Breakfasts and dinners still very good. So no real big complaints.

Stayed for one night, on my way to friends. Lovely hotel, amenities great, excellent breakfast,with lots of choice and good service. Had a walk in the park opposite. The room was spacious,clean. Comfortable bed and choice of pillows. Bathroom was super clean, plus a tray with tea pot, kettle, cups and cookies Down side, temperature too warm. I suggest ceiling fans might be helpful. Quiet, apart from the crossing alarm on the street outside.

Staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Nothing was a chore. Breakfast was excellent value for money. We had our young son with us, the waiters and waitresses were excellent accommodating us and assisting us. We had considered upgrading however we continued with a standard room, it was great in size (I've stayed in executive rooms smaller) it was spotless and we were provided a cot with mattress. I often find hotel cot mattresses poor quality and we bring our own however the mattress provided was great. Very large double bed but we were given the choice to have it set up as twin beds. Plenty of room for kids to play on the floor regardless of the room being set up with a cot, large double, chest of drawers, dresser and table with Chairs. If I was to be picky I think the dark wood furniture is out of date and darkens the room. Would highly recommend. Free parking outside. Lovely park across the road for walking. Close to city centre. Within walking distance if necessary. Thank you for having us.

hockeychick87, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 16/05/2017

We stayed here just a few short days ago. The hotel was lovely. The staff at the front desk was very helpful in getting us around by foot as well as making suggestions on places to see and eat. The restaurant/bar at the hotel was very nice. I loved our room on the third floor, it was large with a view of the park and course. We had a towel warmer which was wonderful when getting out of the shower in the morning. We were a little outside of the main part but that was fine, it was a short walk to many places of interest. We really lucked out with the weather...sunny everyday!

Julie C, Leicestershire 13/05/2017

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights. The room was spacious & comfortable, the bed was huge - 2 singles pushed together with a thick mattress topper over them so you were hardly aware of the join in the middle. There is also a small safe in the room which is very useful for iPads etc. We arrived well before the book-in time asked if we could check our car in to the carpark so that we could explore the city leaving the car & luggage safe. The gentleman on reception checked with housekeeping who confirmed that our room wouldn't be ready for at least an hour, but yes we could book the car in. While we were completing the forms housekeeping phoned down to say that they were just finishing an identical room so if we wanted to wait 5 minutes we could have that room straight away. Having been driving for 6 hours we can only thank housekeeping & reception for their very kind consideration!! It's service like this that changes a good stay into a great stay! The hotel is only a 15 minute walk to the castle & Princes Street and there are some nice restaurants within a short walk. We will definitely return to the Best Western Plus Bruntsfield when we visit Edinburgh again.

You know when a hotel gets it just right? When you slow down, relax, and one-by-one spot all the little things that make your stay special? Friendly staff, spotless rooms, no maintenance required, wide choice of tea in the rooms, best shower ever (clean, powerful, efficient door seal!!), great breakfast... it all adds up to a memorable stay. And just to round it all off nicely, the taxi driver they frequently use was the friendliest, most helpful driver ever! Thank you!

I stayed the week of Easter. The room and bed was very comfortable and clean. This is an area close to the center of things but far enough away to enjoy the open spaces near Edinburgh College. It is about a 20 minute walk to area attractions. I generally took a taxi or Uber into town in the morning and walked back at the end of the day. My room was located at the bottom of a couple of sets of stairs- not sure about the rest of the hotel. I did breakfast one morning and wished I had stuck to the continental breakfast portion. The food was good but having my eggs come out after I had almost finished eating was a little awkward. Nice assortment of food, juices, and coffees. I also got an Easter egg under my coffee cup! I ordered soup to be sent up to my room at the end of a long day- it was very good and came with bread & butter. The staff was very attentive and helpful. I even got an Easter goodie at the front desk! I would stay there again.

From the moment we entered the hotel, we were greeted with welcoming, professional service with each staff member we met greeting us warmly. The hotel is in a great location, approx 20 minutes walk to Princess Street or slightly longer through the Grassmarket or Meadows to the Royal Mile. The hotel does have parking but this is limited so don't rely on getting a space. Our room was comfortable, looking like it had been recently refurbished had adequate clothes hanging space for a couple of nights. Breakfast was good with a varied choice of continental and cooked to order options. Special thanks to the team for the lovely anniversary card and petit fours that were awaiting us when we returned to our room. As we had already arranged to eat out, we did not try the restaurant or the bar but they looked to have a good selection of craft gin.

It was my turn to organise our annual ex-employees reunion, so as my friends came from all over the UK, a convenient and central place was a must. This place served us well and the hotel staff did themslves proud, not only in welcome and cordial manner because we all vacated with experiencing excellent Scottish hospitality which will be expressed by us to others if they decide to visit Edinburgh From reception staff, especially Angela, to bar staff, restaurant and all others, professionalism and courtesy was abundant. Excellent rooms and really comfy large bed all with the usual extras. To sum up, excellent value for your money.

Ellieilb, Washington DC, District of Columbia 26/04/2017

We stayed one night at this place as part of our road trip through Scotland. This location offers free parking, which is a gem, as you have to pay a fortune to park in the city center parkings. As we walked, we were acknowledged by a cold hello. The receptionist quickly looked up our booking and quickly said that he could not check us in because we arrived earlier (10:30) than the hotel's check-in time (14:00). No arguments there but how about "welcome to Best Western, or welcome to Edinburgh or sorry your room is not ready or would you like us to keep your luggages?" But that was alright. We left everything in the car and went for a stroll in the city center. By the time we came back it was 9p.m. and another receptionist was there with the same exact attitude...so unenthusiastic! The room was nothing fancy but it was very clean. I realize that we're talking about Best Western not Ritz. For staying one night, the hotel did the job for us especially since it was conveniently located nearby most attractions in the city (walking distance) and the parking was free. But looked like the receptionists didn't quite enjoy their jobs.

Ed B, Bournemouth, United Kingdom 23/04/2017

I had booked The Bruntsfield for long weekend break over Easter, for myself and a friend. I had been attracted by the combination of price, location and reviews. Based upon the price I had arrived with reasonable expectations. I was very pleasantly suprised to say that they were exceeded on numerous occasions throughout the stay. We had arrived on an early flight so weren't expecting to be able to book in, however, the staff of reception were very friendly and helpful about leaving luggage and completing check in so when room was ready later could simply collect the key. Although the room was a single it was fairly well sized and with pleasant outlook. The bathroom although a bit dated and in need of some updating did the job it was supposed to so the small flaws were nor serious enough to mark it down. The bed although softer than I an used to proved very comfortable, as did the pillows. Pillows are something I am very fussy about and I often find hotel ones uncomfortable. These were so good I had to take the covers off to find out the make, and have now ordered some. One small criticism of the room was that as I like to sleep with the window open, if people from the bar in basement stood outside smoking you could occasionaly smell it. The staff in the bar and restaurant were all very friendly and welcoming, especially the charming James, who all made us feel very welcome. Had planned to eat out whilst in Edinburgh but ended up enjoying meals in the hotel. There is a comfy lounge at the front of the hotel, ideal for relaxing and enjoying a brandy after the meal. This is where my other criticism comes in. The background music was at times rather annoying, whilst it was I think intended to be fairly non descripte it did get a little annoyingly repetitive. However, based upon experience of staff am sure if I had asked they would have turned it down. As I often stay away with work I am used to the bland corporate boxes of modern business hotels. That is why I so fell for the Bruntsfield, a lovely hotel with lots of character, a few small flaws here and there, but nothing that spoilt my enjoyment. But with the added bonus of a brilliant team of staff. Will certainly be back.

I stayed over the Easter 2017 Bank Holiday weekend, and I had a superb time! A lovely room, modern fixtures and fittings with a great bathroom. My Friend and I had a meal in Bisque on the Saturday evening, just wonderful! A full on roast beef dinner with all the trimmings on a Saturday evening...Heaven! Lovely, friendly Staff in both the Hotel and restaurant, they showed a real interest in sights we'd seen and places we'd visited, adding in handy tips on places to go and things to do and see. Special thanks to Ian, one of the Managers, who marked out a route for us to walk from the Hotel to the Castle. Such a superb route through some beautiful parks and gardens I cannot, and have no need to find fault; I'm looking forward to returning!! Well done to all of the Staff at the Hotel!

Great hotel, lovely staff but if you are in room 136 expect a very early wake up call. The laundry truck arrives at 04:50am to collect and deliver directly below your room. Staff don't see this as an issue but then I guess they sleep else ware. Shame as it spoilt our stay......

It's just 15-20 minutes walk to Princes Street, and about 40 to the base of Arthur's Seat across Bruntsfield Links. The hotel restaurant is capable, but for longer stays there are many restaurants within an easy walk. The front of the hotel faces the links, and so has a green view. At least one room also has a view of the castle. The main room of our suit had enormous windows letting in a lot of light. The bathroom was large, very well designed, fully tiled, and with both a shower and bath. While there was no air con (this is Edinburgh after all) there was a good set of radiators and a large floor-standing fan. We were very happy with the room, and with the whole hotel.

This is without doubt one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at, and although it is a 4 star hotel, the staff give you 5 star treatment. The staff are the most professional, friendly, and wonderful team of people I have ever come across in my travels. The rooms are so comfortable with amazing views over Edinburgh. The breakfast is superb, and the breakfast manager, Miss Jean Dobie, will always look after her guests to the highest of standards. I would like to thank them all for such a most relaxed and lovely stay; Ian Henderson and Angela. Alex and all the reception staff. Dougie and all the bar and restaurant staff. The house keeping manager, and the maintenance man. Ronnie and Charles the night staff. Thank You.

It has a warren of rooms in an older building, but with updated amenities. Nice mix of old and new.

We stayed here on a get away from it all 1 night break in Edinburgh. Booked direct and got a fantastic rate, inclusive if breakfast. Excellent value for money. We arrived just after 1pm, got a space in the hotel's private car park and although early we were able to check in and head to our room straight away. Our room faced the front of the hotel overlooking the links and was of a good size with an amazing king bed. The room was clean, fresh fit for purpose. We headed to the hotel bar after settling in and it was a nice spring day so asked if there was outdoor seating. We were taken by a member of staff and it was in a secluded sun trap at the rear of the hotel. Ample tables and a peaceful spot for a drink. As we were having dinner out we didn't sample the restaurant however the menu looked delish and a great deal of choice at reasonable prices. A return to the hotel bar later for a night cap. I must say what stood out at this hotel was the staff. The bar was busy but we were served quickly and professionally. Smiley happy staff all of them we came across really from check in to check out took time to say greetings of the day and this makes all the difference. After an amazing slew we went for breakfast. Great choice of continental and cooked food the latter cooked to order and table served. Highly recommend this hotel. It's a stones throw from the city centre yet far enough out to be quiet and a peaceful venue for a good nights rest. Thank you team and we will be back.

Yorkshirebred, England 01/04/2017

A very well presented hotel only within walking distance of Edinburgh centre. The welcome was efficient and friendly. Our room was a good size and had an enormous and comfortable bed. It had all the facilities were would have expected of a hotel in this grading. All the staff we met were pleasant and helpful. Our bedroom, the public areas,bar, restaurant and lounge that we used or visited were all well kept and spotlessly clean. Breakfast (included) had a good selection and of good quality. Staff were happy to consider choices that were not on the menu. We were able to park our car easily and for free in the hotels car park which is unusual so close to the centre of Edinburgh. At busier times though this might be more difficult. Our only gripe was the Laundry van that collected and delivered laundry at around 4.30 - 5 am in the morning directly underneath our window and similar comments relate to waste disposal lorries. Overall a lovely hotel which we would happily use again on visits to Edinburgh

Dear Yorkshirebred, Thank you for your kind review and I am so sorry you were disturbed by a delivery to the hotel, this is something we are working on to ensure none of our guests are ever disturbed by our deliveries, and we have already managed to change the waste disposal uplift time and just waiting on confirmation from the laundry of their new time. I appreciate this didn't help enhance your stay but also wanted you to know we have acted on it as we take all guest feedback seriously. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay otherwise and I will pass you lovely comments on to the staff and kitchen. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

For: Near restaurants and pubs and opposite a park. Just 1 1/2 miles from Princes Street. Quiet, clean, warm, with helpful staff and lovely rooms (at least the ones I've stayed in) Against: Set your mobile phone alarm, the alarm calls don't always happen, but nothing else I can think of. Breakfast was probably good, but I didn't get to find out (see above).

Hotel was slightly out of town but this is not a problem as bus runs past hotel and you can travel all day for £4. There was a great breakfast cooked freshly. We ate in hotel in evening and found meals to be good value. Staff at reception were very helpful. I would stay at this hotel again and would recommend it for a stay

Spent 2 nights here so we could attend a conference at the nearby Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Really convenient - only 10-12 minutes walk away. Room was a good size, comfortable and quiet with a nice bathroom. Plenty of tea making materials plus biscuits replenished each day. Breakfast was fantastic - try the Full Scottish!

I look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

"Dire WiFi....great breakfast"

Richard J, Manchester, United Kingdom 10/11/2016

I'm 50/50 about this place ( I usually stay at the Caley off Princess St ). The parking is very hit and miss, no pun intended. The breakfast with haggis and black pudding is top notch but the WiFi is just dreadful. I couldn't actually connect to my VPN for more than a minute or so and then it was so slow I just gave up, despite the staff trying their best. The result was that I had to work on my day off just to input data that I usually input in the evenings. It's a compromise .... a good breakfast vs losing a day off because you can't finalise work? You decide...

Russell_Imrie, Managing Director at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Richard Thank you for staying with us during your visit to Edinburgh and for your review of your stay. I am pleased that your stay was generally enjoyable but regret that our WiFi was not performing as you should have expected. We did indeed have an issue with guests making a VPN connection at the time of your visit. General internet access was operating perfectly however access over a VPN was not. We became aware of the issue and the problem was solved the next day after some reconfiguration of our system. My apologies that this prevented you from working remotely. I hope that this isolated incident will not prevent you from choosing to stay with us again. Thank you for your business. Your sincerely Russell Imrie Managing Director

Spent a long (3-night) weekend in this lovely hotel while visiting my daughter, who's studying at Edinburgh university. Was allocated a spacious twin room, which allowed my daughter to stay with me for a couple of the nights. Everyone at the hotel - from the receptionists, the lovely ladies at breakfast, the cleaning staff and maintenance staff up to Susie, the GM were very kind and helpful.Had a problem with the TV, which was fixed in 5 minutes; didn't understand how to work the (free) wifi: that, too, was sorted in under 5 minutes. Had room service on the last night (soup & sandwiches), which was promptly delivered, tasty & good value. I will definitely be staying here again when I/we next visit our daughter and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Hello Mr George, Thank you for your lovely review and it was an absolute pleasure looking after your daughter and yourself. The staff are very pleased to receive such a nice review and I am glad the room service didn't disappoint - was my first! I hope your daughter has a fantastic time at University and she is always welcome to pop in, we look forward to seeing you and Mrs George back very soon. Kind regards Susie

"An excellent hotel"

SebastianWestCountry, West Country 08/11/2016

The Bruntsfield is excellent. It is away from the very centre of Edinburgh, but within easy walking distance of the Royal Mile and Princes Street. Since there is on-site parking we were able to leave the car and explore the city on foot. The immediate surroundings of the hotel are reminiscent of a thriving village with a very good mix of shops and restauarants and across the road there is a park that allows access by foot to the city centre almost exclusively by parkland. We had a beautiful room that was spacious and had two comfortable chairs and a table that rendered the excellent hotel lounges redundant from our point of view. Everything in the room lent itself to guest convenience and there were no irritating omissions. The ladies who cleaned the room were friendly, helpful and very thorough. The breakfast buffet was first class enabling the guest to have a very pleasant continental breakfast. A cooked breakfast was also available that covered the normal range of UK-style breakfasts. The dinner menu was a little unimaginative (especially if you dined on a day when the daily special was unappealing) but the food was carefully prepared and presented. We had a minor problem with our booking because, apparently, the booking codes of the hotel differed from the codes of Best Western with whom we booked. But the matter was settled with efficiency and great courtesy by the hotel manager. We would always consider this hotel whenever we visited Edinburgh.

"Wonderful weekend in Edinburgh and BW+ Bruntsfield"

User 03/11/2016

We had a great autumn weekend in fantastic Edinburgh, enjoying sunny weather and an amazing city. The stay at BW+ City Centre Bruntsfield was really good. Reasonable distance to city centre, old and new town (just a couple of minutes walk). It's a cozy and friendly hotel with really nice and modern rooms. The service offered at the hotel was really good, served by an always positive staff. I could really recommend this hotel for a nice stay in Edinburgh. /Jorgen

McClairieFairy, Perth and Kinross, United Kingdom 31/10/2016

Lovely staff and a nice quick check in. Clean room and perfectly sufficient for what we needed. The bed was incredibly comfy. Our room was at the back (37) and was very quiet. Loads of hot water and plenty of power in the shower. Excellent breakfast with a massive choice. the Bircher Mueseli was fab! There wasn't much parking at the hotel but plenty on street, however only two hours at a time. Free after 6 on a Saturday night though and all day Sunday which is handy.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear McClairieFairy, Thank you taking the time to post your review and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay, in particular our tasty breakfast. Occasionally we have limited parking particularly over the weekend when the hotel is busy with both guests and patrons of our bar & restaurant, but as you rightly said there is on street parking available and we try to advise guests when a spot becomes free if they have had to temporarily park out front. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

Pennfriends, Penn,UK 28/10/2016

We always stay at this hotel as it is very well located if you are travelling to Edinburgh with a car! Very good room, excellent bar and breakfast always efficiently served! Slight issue with a towel rail and a chilly bathroom but having been told it didn't work, mysteriously it was on next time we went back to our room! Very nice staff and a friendly welcome always.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Penfriends, Thank you for your review and your continued patronage. I apologise for the towel rail being cold resulting in a chilly bathroom, on further investigation the previous guests had complained the room was too hot! so it had been switched off but happy this didn't detract from your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

"Well located and comfortable, but restaurant was disappointing"

Chris M, Nanaimo, Canada 27/10/2016

This hotel is located about 20 minutes walk from the main attractions in Edinburgh, in an area with a reasonable choice of restaurants. The hotel itself was fine, the room was clean and spacious enough, and the bed was comfortable. One disappointment, however, was the restaurant - which was okay for breakfast but our dinner there the first night was poor.

"Would definitely return"

4
User 26/10/2016

Loved the location, perfect for a short walk to the city centre but some great bars and shops nearby too. A lovely park across the road (bigger than you think) The hotel is spotless and our room was good too. The facilities (when we found our way around) were great. Shame we weren't told much on arrival by a very professional and polite gentleman on reception. We had to ask where to go for breakfast as it was tucked out of the way and it appeared that coffee and biscuits were free in the reception eaiting area??? The WiFi is rubbish though. Very frustrating as you constantly have to sign in. But the lovely lady on reception as we checked out was very concerned about it! A minor issue in a lovely hotel that we would definitely return to and recommend.

"Good value for money"

WeeJimmyG, Bangor 25/10/2016

Our family room was spacious, split into two rooms with a large bathroom which had both a bath and a shower- useful for the wee ones. Room was clean and warm. Staff were very pleasant, and breakfast was great with lots of choice. There are shops and restaurants nearby, the Meadows are across the road with a playground about 5 mins walk away. The Royal Mile is about 25 mins walk, but there are plenty of buses to the city from the stop 100m up the road.

"A holiday to remember"

We had a really lovely stay in Edinburgh and would readily return on another trip to stay at this hotel. Staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. Facilities are good and and the breakfast excellent. Thank you to all concerned for your efforts.

"Spacious room located a short walk from several theatres"

5
User 23/10/2016

We booked here as we were looking for a nice place to stay after a night out at the theatre. (Kings theatre is walking distance away). Often when staying in capital city hotels space is at a premium but the room we booked (superior) was huge with a very comfy four poster bed. There's free parking for hotel guests so we could ditch the car and explore Edinburgh by foot. The neighbourhood is very artisinal with craft coffee, chocolate and cheesecake within 100 yards of the hotel as well as a wealth of bars and eateries close by. Would definitely stay here again next time we're in Edinburgh.

"QUIRKY LAYOUT"

jintyjan2, Inverness, Scotland 22/10/2016

We stayed here for two nights on a trip to Edinburgh. The hotel has parking though it is limited. The welcome was very friendly but we did have problems finding our room. The hotel is quirky in its layout with corridors and steps all over the place. We found the right room eventually. It was quite quirky as well with the main bedroom which was quite small and then down three steps to the wardrobe and bathroom. It was clean and comfortable though. We were overlooking the dining room and terrace and it was very quiet. We did eat in the restaurant on the first night and I had the best beefburger I have ever had. All in all it was a very comfortable stay.

"Fabulous attention in The Scottish Capital City Hotel!"

fiona d, Bearsden, United Kingdom 18/10/2016

From the minute I booked this hotel to the minute I sadly left I felt confident and contented that everything would be taken care of! I stayed two nights and all the staff without exception were very helpful,friendly and smiley faced! When dealing with the public it is not always easy to achieve this standard so very well done to the Management in this hotel for training the fabulous staff. The food was excellent and we had my grandson to please! His food arrived very quickly and was freshly cooked and delicious! I also attended an evening buffet function and the food was delicious,beautifully served piping hot with excellent quality! The breakfast was also fabulous with a vast selection to choose. There was certainly no need to go hungry!!! The next time I require to stay in Edinburgh I shall not hesitate to stay at the Brilliant Bruntsfield Hotel. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

Stupotran, Immingham, United Kingdom 18/10/2016

Always the same , I love this hotel I try to visit Edinburgh as often as I can & always try to stay here , Such a friendly hotel, the staff are wonderful, the rooms are always well serviced & the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic & is always freshly cooked to order. A great location too , just far enough away from the city centre , it only takes around 25 minutes to walk to Princess Street or if like me your a fan of the Grass Market & the old town it's even nearer, on a good bus route too , especially handy if raining ..

"Great choice of breakfast"

4
RedMacca, Liverpool 17/10/2016

Clean spacious rooms. complimentary coffee and shortbread biscuits in reception - a great touch. Friendly staff, led from the front by the Manager. Great choice of breakfast - the usual suspects: cereal, toast, meats, cheese, fruit, yoghurts. A big plus was the full Scottish cooked breakfast (cooked to order, not from the buffet), porridge (Unfortunately I'm from the ready brek generation so I can't cope with real porridge!) and star of the show scrambled egg with salmon which was a big hit. The Bisque Bar was very good, we had a nightcap there and the prices were comparable to other places we frequented in the city centre. The only drawback we found about the hotel was the distance from the centre - about 20/25 minutes walk. Because of the size of our party we needed 2 taxis each journey if an 8 seater was unavailable.

"Pleasant stay at elegant hotel"

Peggy1129, Bourbonnais, Illinois 14/10/2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Edinburgh Bruntsfield Hotel. The old hotel was well refurbished, clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. The lobby was elegant. The rooms were pretty and comfortable, clean and spacious. We enjoyed the great breakfast buffet that included a cooked breakfast. Good value for money too. Would certainly book again.

Staggz_2012, Biggleswade 08/10/2016

Pros: - Friendly and helpful staff - Comfortable beds - Good room sizes - Clean rooms - Plenty of warm water for showers - Fantastic turndown service - A 10 minute taxi journey to the centre of Edinburgh Cons: - Thin walls meaning you can hear a lot of the busy traffic between 5am and 9pm, especially when the emergency services travel by. This also means you can often hear the television in the adjacent rooms. - Wifi cuts out every 15 minutes and not a one-day problem as I stayed there for 5 nights For a semi-budget hotel this one rates very well!

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Staggz_2012, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your kind comments which I will pass on to all the staff. Can you let me know which room you stayed in and the email address you used to log in so I can look into the WiFi issue. As far as I am aware we had no other reports during the time of your stay so it would be helpful to ask our IT provider to investigate. As an old building unfortunately noise does travel and we have all our TVs set to a certain level so apologies if this still disturbed you. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future. Kind regards Susie

KATHRINE R, FAIRFAX 08/10/2016

The walk to the Royal Mile takes about 30 minutes or a cab for 5pounds. Our room was quite large (124) with an even larger bathroom. We faced the park across the street - no street noise at all. Because the hotel is comprised of three row houses, there are a lot of twists, turns and steps to get around the hallways but nothing that cannot be easily navigated and steps are just two or three at a time. Nice breakfast options consisting of continental and hot options. Front desk staff was gracious and welcoming. Good location, safe neighbor and would stay again.

Jane E, Bromsgrove, England, United Kingdom 07/10/2016

Nice place but room very basic lots of street and corridors noise and bed the softest most uncomfortable I have ever tried to sleep in. Was awake literally every 5 minutes and am now exhausted. £140 for a really bad night. Thanks a lot. Oh and then have to pay another tenner each for breakfast! There must be better rooms/hotels to stay in Edinburgh for that price. Will not be staying here again

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Jane E, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and I am glad you thought the hotel was a nice place, however I was horrified to read the rest of your review and apologise that we did not meet your expectations or you felt we were not value for money. Being relatively new to the business and having read all the previous reviews, historically we are praised for our comfortable beds and pillows, on investigating the matter further there is no record either at reception or with duty manager of you being unhappy either during your stay or on check out?. I was actually in the hotel over the weekend and had I known of your dissatisfaction I could have tried to rectify the matter immediately either by moving you to another room or refunding you something towards the poor nights sleep? you had booked a room only rate and our breakfast charge to guests on arrival who is indeed 10.00 which all our room only guests happily pay. It is very difficult for any manager to keep customer service levels and quality control to a maximum when the guest says nothing at the time, then goes straight to trip advisor to voice their concerns. I am so sorry you had such a poor nights sleep and for any inconvenience caused and hope to be able to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

948Bruno31, Boat of Garten, United Kingdom 03/10/2016

Loved our stay here...very friendly staff, felt welcome and at home! Even moreso on being presented with a glass of bubbly on hearing it was our anniversary..Scottish hospitality at it's best! Lovely park across from hotel leading into city centre. The walk itself taking in the history and amazing architecture of Edinburgh was mesmerising. There is also a varied selection of shops more or less the minute you leave the hotel with Princes Street not too far away, within walking distance. Our room was warm, but I'd rather that than cold.. huge fan in room but didn't want to fall asleep with it on..I had to open the window and didn't sleep much because of the city traffic, however I put that down to coming from the countryside. My husband however was 'out' like a log, too much retail therapy no doubt! Looking forward to returning!

Graeme S, Alderley Edge, United Kingdom 03/10/2016

Ring the hotel direct, the booking staff could not be more helpful. The rooms are very clean, spacious and well appointed. The food is excellent, even though the menu does not change there is sufficient choice for anyone and almost too much at breakfast. The wine list is varied with prices below what you would expect of an hotel of this star rating. The situation is ideal - close to the Castle, Princes Street and Holyrood. All of this is very good, but what matters most is he courteousness and efficiency of the staff.

I booked a "wee single" for a night and was greatly surprised to find I had plenty of space and a double bed!

Larkins2014, Derby, United Kingdom 01/10/2016

Not right in the centre of Edinburgh but close enough. I found this to be a really good hotel, made better by waiting till the last minute to book to get a really good deal. As I have said before BW give you a standard and this does not disappoint. Nice room (very big in fact), very clean and lovely breakfast. If I have a frown it is the wifi link. I don't know if this is becoming a wide problem but the link was weak and caused connection problems on my laptop.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Larkins2014, Apologies for the delay in my response, however I was looking into your WiFi issues during your stay, and further to a report from our IT department using your email address at the time of stay there were no obvious problems with our connection or strength and no other record of anyone else having problems during this time so we apologise for any inconvenience caused and can only think maybe there was a connection problem with your provider? I am so glad you had an otherwise enjoyable stay and that you continually enjoy the Best Western Brand and standards. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel.

"Ideal Theatre Visit Retreat."

Catriona C, Darvel, United Kingdom 28/09/2016

Set across the road from Brunstfield Links, this hotel proved to be the ideal place to stay for our theatre visit to Edinburgh. The bus stops just outside the hotel, and for £1.40, we were dropped right outside the Playhouse Theatre. The hotel itself is a beautiful old building, immaculately kept and served by very helpful and friendly staff. It also has free parking, a novelty in Edinburgh. Brunstfield Links is an immense meadow right in the heart of the city which even offers free golf! Food at the hotel is served in a modern styled Bistro and was of a very good quality, reasonably priced. We made an excellent choice using this hotel and would definitely return, however we would not choose room 31 again. Although the bed was extremely comfortable and the room clean with all the provisions you would need, it was extremely warm. The window only opened a few inches and there was an large, noisy extraction fan outside it. Other rooms, facing the park looked much better.

Dear Catriona C, Thank you for your lovely comments about the hotel, staff and setting in the beautiful Bruntsfield area of the city. I am delighted you feel we are value for money and that you made a good choice, we hope all our guests feel this way and are always looking for ways to improve the service and ambience in the hotel.

Kerry-Ann-Scotland, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 26/09/2016

Short one night stay. Chose the hotel as close to meetings. The pros - 1. The staff are fabulous 2. The location is fantastic and cannot be faulted. 3. Room service is speedy and the food absolutely fine. 4. The room was as quiet as a city centre room can be. 5. The beds are very comfy The cons - 1. The wifi is terrible. It is free but so slow you cannot send even short emails. No option to upgrade. 2. The room is very tired and is showing its age. The room really needs redecorating. 3. There was no dressing gown in the room. I thought this was standard by now. Overall great if you don't mind tired rooms as a trade off for location. Not good for business travellers.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Kerry-Ann-Scotland, Thank you for your review and I am pleased to see the plus points outweigh the cons and you enjoyed your stay for the main part, apologies for the delay in this response but I was investigating your complaint re the wifi with our provider and they have assured me we have ample speed for the property 10MB/2MB and during the time of your stay there were no other issues, however your review has prompted us to put better log in instructions both at reception and in the guest information folders as sometimes people log on not realising they need to log in via their email within a certain time period, so I apologise for this shortfall in our services. We provide dressing gowns in our Executive/Superior rooms only however a call to reception to request one would happily have been met. I hope we get the chance to welcome you back to the hotel very soon. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

David J, Tauranga, New Zealand 21/09/2016

We stayed here for 6 days to attend a conference at EICC and for a short family holiday afterwards. The hotel is excellent. We had one of the superior rooms which was quiet. The room was presented and equipped to a high standard. Friendly and helpful staff. The breakfasts were wonderful and a great way to start the day. We also ate at the restaurant several times in the evening which we would also recommend. The hotel is nicely situated on the Links with easy access into town by bus or walking through the Meadows. It was a pleasant 15 minute walk to the EICC along the canal. The hotel has a traditional feel to it and character. Highly recommended. We would definitely stay again.

Michelle H, Waterdown, Ontario, Canada 21/09/2016

We arrived at the hotel at 7:30 am after an over night flight from Toronto, Canada. Our designated rooms were not ready, which was not the end of the world but they offered no options. I had to inquire if there were other rooms available, low and behold there was. Why could they not have offered that themselves. I guess if we (4 people) were willing to hang around the lobby it was easier for them! Some of the front desk staff were not overly pleasant. Our room was good, courtyard, the other room not so much, small and noisy. If I return to Edinburugh, this will not be my first choice.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Michelle H, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and I would like to personally apologise for this oversight in our service levels on this occasion. You are correct in pointing out we should have offered the alternative rooms without prompting from yourselves and appreciate after a long journey getting checked in as quickly and efficiently as possible is of the utmost importance. as we are a busy hotel and generally full at this time of the year it is not always possible to offer guests such an early check in but as luck would have it we were able to accommodate you. I sincerely hope if you do return to Edinburgh you will give us another visit and contact me personally prior to your arrival, we pride ourselves on our warm friendly staff and service as you can see from many of our other reviews what happened on this particular morning is not the norm, and I have passed your comments on to the reception manager.

bably80, Jarrow, United Kingdom 14/09/2016

Stayed in room 17(executive room) for 3 nights from 5 to 8 Sept. We were checked in and checked out by Alex, always smiling, knowledgeable and approachable. In fact all of the staff working there were friendly. The room we got was a little dark and warm, despite having a powerful stand fan in the room. The bathroom had a walk in shower, bath tub and toilet. It was quite nice. The bed was big and comfortable and the TV was right in front of the bed. We didn't have the breakfast but we did try a meal in the bistro. Wasn't impressed with the meal. I had fish and chips(probably the most expensive fish and chips I've ever had) and it didn't taste good. Anyways, there are place to eat in Edinburgh. Overall, it was a good experience throughout the 3 nights. Free WiFi but I didn't use it as the 4g network was fantastic. Husband did try the WiFi on his iPad and it was ok.

A lovely stay in a very friendly hotel. Staff were very helpful and friendly and gave an excellent service. Breakfast choice was excellent as was cleanliness of the hotel. Wifi could be a bit hit and miss and our room was a little dark, but I bed was comfy and we would certainly recommend this hotel.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Annette G, Thank you for your lovely review and recommendation, so glad you enjoyed your stay and our hospitality, sorry the room was a little dark, as we are an old building with surrounding gardens/trees these can sometimes obscure the natural light. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Susie Farley General Manager

"Nice Townhouse hotel"

Stephenpereira, Porto 12/09/2016

Visited the hotel as it was recommended by the Edinburgh Napier University, being in close proximity to drop our son to his first year in college. The hotel is situated in what's seems a renovated town house location giving it a nice quaint look. The maze of rooms inside is a bit confusing. Stayed there for 3 nights. Friendly staff with a zealous housekeeper unintentionally waking us up at around 8 am daily to clean the room. Advisable to put the Do not Disturb sign on my next visit here :-) The room was comfortable with a nice townhouse setting. It would be nice if the hotel had an integral mixer tap instead of separate hot and cold water taps. Also a good idea if the management can install Universal sockets for plugging in phones and computers for charging. Right now the rooms are only fitted in with 3 pin square sockets unlike the rest of Europe. Fortunately I had carried an adaptor. Overall a good experience. Dinner at the hotel was very good. I would have loved to extend my last stay here but the hotel was fully booked. But will visit again

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear stephenpereira, Thank you for taking the time to write a review after your recent stay with us and for your lovely comments which I will pass on to the staff, sorry the housekeeper woke you this is why we have the DND signs to hang out or a request to reception to save the daily intrusion. We always have all types of adaptors available at reception. Finally we hope your son enjoys University and our beautiful city and hope to welcome you back in the near future, sorry you couldn't stay longer. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

spe03, Harrow, United Kingdom 12/09/2016

Perfectly decent hotel, well located in Bruntsfield close to a good range of shops and restaurants (and with a decent restaurant of its own), near the university and old town, with good transport links etc. and free (although not very plentiful) parking. My room was newly refurbished, very clean and quite well equipped, and bigger than I expected (I booked 'small single' and was expecting something the size of a broom cupboard, but actually more like a small double). Overall a pleasant experience. I will be back for sure

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear spe03, Thank you for your review and so delighted your stay exceeded your expectations, this is always nice to hear.

Sheila R, Pembroke, United Kingdom 12/09/2016

Our standard room far out passed our previous Best Western hotel in Moffat. We were at the back of the hotel which was quiet and ensured a good nights sleep. The room was large and a big bathroom. Staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious and varied with obliging waiters to answer all needs. We did think the hotel was more central to the main attractions but there was a good bus service, £ 1.60 per person to wherever you were going. Would recommend it.

"Charming hotel."

Jo P, Liverpool, United Kingdom 08/09/2016

My 14 year old daughter and I booked the Bruntsfield hotel as my eldest daughter lives near by - as she is studying at the University of Edinburgh. There were no problems checking in and our room was situated on the first floor. The room was immaculate, not a thing out of place and decorated to an exceptionally high standard, the bed was absolutely gigantic, so comfortable and I lost count of how many pillows were supplied! Bathroom was large, clean and stocked with necessary toiletries, our hotel package did not include breakfast or dinner but there aren't a shortage of cafes and restaurants in the area so that wasn't a problem, however the prices at the hotel bar and restaurant seemed reasonable enough anyway. It's not a long walk to city centre, possibly 20 minutes if you stroll at your leisure. I would definitely book the Bruntsfield again -although not what you'd consider cheap at £120 per night midweek when we visited, I've stayed in a Premier Inn down the road for virtually the same price and know where I'd prefer! I look forward to returning, the Bruntsfield is a truly charming hotel.

Dear Jo P, Thank you for your lovely review of the hotel and we are glad both you and your daughter enjoyed our hospitality.

"Good choice"

Jayne W, Tasmania, Australia 07/09/2016

Our first night in Edinburgh so decided on a hotel instead of our usual guest house. Reception staff were helpful and our ground floor room was ideal. Good size and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely and the wait staff were attentive. A special mention must go to the bar man who was very knowledgeable when it came to beer and was very friendly. Wish I could remember his name but he was the older of the two that served us. Only issue was the wifi which we found to be extremely hit and miss despite the ridiculously involved connection instructions.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Jayne W, we are delighted you made the right choice of hotel during your recent visit to Edinburgh and I will pass your kind comments on to all the staff with a special mention to Dougie who has been with the hotel for several years and is loved by guests old and new, sorry about the wifi but occasionally our provider virgin media carries out work in the area which does affect our quality of wifi from time to time. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

Christopher D, Royal Wootton Bassett, United Kingdom 05/09/2016

This is a very nice hotel about 10 minutes away from Princess street and very close to a number of nice restaurants and pubs/bars etc. Bruntsfield is a great place to eat and drink and the hotel is in striking distance of central Edinburgh. We were glad we chose this very good hotel.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review

"Decent Choice if You're in the Area"

hpfl, Boulder 29/08/2016

This was a first stay for us and it worked well for our needs. We typically stay in smaller places and you may need to leave bread crumbs to find your way back to your room but that's hardly a criticism; it is a bigger place. We had an Executive Room and it was quite large with a separate seating area and a bathroom larger than some of the single rooms I've had in other hotels. The furniture didn't all match but I didn't really notice until my wife pointed it out. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful; the breakfast staff a bit less so but not a real problem. I was concerned about road noise but that turned out not to be a problem with the room we had. We'd stay here again if we decide we want to be just a wee bit away from the Royal Mile or New Town (our usual hotel's location). The price provides a real good value.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and thought we were good value for money. The reception team will be delighted with your comments. Our executive rooms are individually designed which is part of the hotels charm. The breakfast staff are normally very well known for their friendly and efficient service as commented on in many other reviews, however apologies if we fell short of expectations on this occasion and your comments will be passed on to the restaurant manager. We look forward to welcoming you back Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

Richard D, Melbourne, Australia 29/08/2016

A very comfortable hotel with good facilities located close enough to the centre of Edinburgh to allow walking to most of the main tourist spots. Our room was a very good size and very well furnished. We ate evening meals at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed the relatively wide selection, and the daily specials. There is parking available on site, but it can be limited.

I am very impressed with my room at the Best Western Plus. My single room is skinny but fairly spacious for just me. The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, the bathroom is good and the room is equipped with a kettle and some coffee/hot chocolate. The only issue was the slight noise from the street coming through the window. Staff are helpful and kind. Baggage storage was excellent.

HJMoore, Glasgow 28/08/2016

We were going to a wedding at Prestonfield House, they were fully booked and found the Brunstfield using google. It was a great find. Very friendly and accommodating staff. We needed access to the room a little early to get ready for the wedding and we were a little late down to breakfast the following day. The receptionist made sure we had access to the room early and the breakfast staff made sure we had a good breakfast. The room was very comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. Would highly recommend.

Obderver, London 27/08/2016

Have stayed here before and the hotel did not disappoint on a return visit. Very comfortable and very pleasant. Everything went smoothly during the stay (although the free wifi can be a little temperamental). The location means that you are away from the hustle and bustle of the old town but can walk to it through the Meadows in little more than twenty minutes.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest, Thank you for your lovely review and your repeat custom. As the new General Manger it is very encouraging to know you enjoyed your stay this time as much as the last. Apologies for the slow wifi which unfortunately when the hotel is full and all the guests are using various devices at the same time can slow the system down. We look forward to seeing you a third time. Kind regards Susie Farley General Manager

"Edinburgh Fringe Festival"

suzienewt, Leicester, United Kingdom 26/08/2016

This hotel is the best we have ever stayed in. The room was large, we booked into one of the four poster rooms, with a decent sized bathroom. Plenty of space to relax. The staff were very friendly and as for the breakfasts, well we didn't need to refuel until much later in the day. The room was clean and tidy, the toiletries were a nice treat and very much needed after going to watch so many shows. Far enough away from the crowds and an excellent place to stay, park just over the road, which means you can walk into town to avoid the crowds. Will def be going back again next year.

karen c, Lincolnshire UK 25/08/2016

stayed here with my husband for 3 nights. easy to find. lovely hotel. very friendly helpful staff. easy check in. we stayed in room 33. room itself was very nice, comfortable large bed and plenty of space for 2. very clean and serviced daily. facilities to make tea/coffee. safe available for belongings. the only down side to this room was the view. looks out over a flat roof and the windows of another part of the building. one bonus from here we could see the fire works from the tattoo. would have like a better view but by no means spoiled our stay in any way. breakfast was excellent. good choice of cereals, cold meats cheeses, toast and pastries and of course cooked breakfast too. tea and coffee flowing. we also had an evening meal in the restaurant on the night we arrived. it was superb. well cooked. good choice of starters, mains and desserts. very attentive bar staff. nothing was too much trouble. staff provided directions to attractions on request. 15 minute walk into Edinburgh.

John H, Romford 23/08/2016

This was our second visit to Edinburgh and each time was stayed at the Best Western in Bruntsfield. It is a lovely hotel, if a little old fashioned. The previous visit was in March 2014. The corridors of the hotel, make it appear as a bit of a rabbit warren. We were welcomed by two very professional receptionists upon arrival and given room 120, a lovely room on the first floor with a view over the park in front of the hotel. The bar and the breakfast room is on the lower ground floor, with a view over a small garden. Breakfast was once again excellent, with a great team of staff to look after the guests. The hotel is within walking distance of the city through the park, it is a fairly long walk though.

SusieFarleyGM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your lovely review and as you pointed out it is a lovely old building, which we try to maintain in a traditional and modern manner and the layout of the old and new buildings adjoining makes for lots of corridors!

Nicely presented room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Breakfast was fine, too. Located down a short flight of stairs so moving luggage wasn't convenient. Also, too near the delivery trucks in the morning. Suggest asking for another room if it bothers you.

"A good hotel for the Fringe"

NovaScotian1979, Nova Scotia 19/08/2016

This hotel was considerably less expensive than other options in Old Town & New Town, the centre of Fringe action, but in reality it was a very easy (and very picturesque) 20 to 25 minute walk away. It's also directly across the street from a beautiful park area, which I found very safe to navigate even very late at night. I definitely do not regret my decision to stay in Bruntsfield! The staff were very friendly and the room suited my needs. My only complaint, if I had to name one, was the fact that the room had no mini-fridge.

michael a, Guildford, United Kingdom 19/08/2016

This hotel is in a superb location and less than a 15 minute walk to the centre of the city. The staff are delightful. However,one of the staff,Jean Dobbie,is a superb ambassador for the hotel.She has been there 26 years and seems as enthusiastic,warm and engaging as she must have been in her first year.Nothing better than being greeted at breakfast with a beaming smile and knowing your name.I have highlighted one person but all staff that I met were professional,warm and eager to please.We will return again.

The breakfast was excellent with an extensive continental buffet and the traditional 'full Scottish'. The staff were welcoming (despite our arrival in muddy cycling gear), friendly and very helpful. An honourable mention and thanks to Iain H who even helped to clean our bikes on arrival. Excellent all round for service and accommodation.

Lovely hotel in a perfect location with lovely walks to the city, just the right distance. Staff were very friendly and helpfull. Couldn't do enough to help. Very clean and the room we had was extremely comfortable with a fabulous bed so good nights sleep. The resturant - breakfast everything you could wish for and loads of it. The resturant was busy every night we ate there so that says it all, the food was delicious. All in all a lovely hotel in a perfect location for the fringe and tattoo and taxi fares were not to steep either. There was a car park, but we traveled by train so can't really comment on that. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Used to live in Edinburgh so knew it well. Room was quite small, right at the front overlooking the busy road. The real issue was that the room was far too hot - no aircon - and if you opened the window it was too noisy. Just unlucky with room I guess as the rest was fine.

This is a very old fashioned style of hotel. Could maybe do with a little updating, but we found it charming. Rooms aren't huge, but we didn't spend long in ours. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. This hotel isn't in the very centre of Edinburgh.... it`s about a 15-20 min stroll to Princes Street, but there are some bars & restaurants in the area. Breakfast was very good. The hot breakfast was cooked to order. Free parking is available but is limited. .

"Average hotel"

3
Vicki G, Melbourne, Australia 12/08/2016

When travelling I check TripAdvisor reviews before booking, 95% of the time the reviews are right on the money. However this time it was not the case. Firstly the hotel is old and in need of refurbishment. We had room 212 and although it was a little noisy, it did not bother us. What was worse were the dirty curtains, floor was sloping to the centre, bed was not very comfortable, leak in the hallway and to top all this off, one the second morning whilst showering, the metal cover from the downlight fell and hit me on the head and the light was hanging by the wire. I Reported the incident to the lady on reception, she referred me to the manager, he said he would have maintenance look at it. Neither staff member asked weather I was hurt but gave a half hearted apology and said it should not have happened. Most of the bathroom was reasonable clean, except for the mould on the tiles around the shower. Toiletries provided were shower gel, shampoo and body lotion. Buffet Breakfast was adequate, good selection of cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit salad, breads and croissants. Cold foods included cheese, two types of cold meats, tomatoes, olives, boiled eggs and pickles. Hot breakfast was made to order. First morning we had a cheese, ham and mushroom omelet, it was ok, not the best I have had, second morning I had the porridge served with fruit compote, the porridge was watery and tasteless and the fruit compote on the sour side. Decided that the buffet breakfast might be a safer option on the third day. On our last day we had the bacon and poached eggs, the eggs were over poached, almost like hard boiled eggs. Service was average, one morning we asked for a pot of green tea a pot of English breakfast was brought out instead, when we asked the asian waiter if we could have a green tea, he removed the pot of English breakfast tea and returned with a pot of hot water and two green tea bags and plonked them on the table and said he didn't know how we wanted our tea. Really, not that hard, open the tea bag sachets and put the tea bags in the pot. On another morning some of our order was not brought out, figured it was not worth saying anything as most of the wait staff clearly did not want to be there, with the exception of an elder gentleman with a moustache who was only there on one morning. This gentleman was polite and very efficient, he went from table to table ensuring that everyone's orders had been taken and when not serving he was busy ensuring that plates were been cleared and that everyone was happy with their breakfast. Hotel was in a good location, it was around 20 to 25 min walk from the city centre, short walk to the bus stop, restaurants, cafés and shops. In many cases one can overlook the short comings of the hotel if there is good customer service, unfortunately this was not the case.

We have been visiting the Fringe in Edinburgh for the past 20 years and have to say this was the best place we have stayed in! The position of the hotel is perfect as you are only a short walk through the parks to the City Centre. The room was just lovely, comfortable and spacious with excellent facilities. Breakfast had all you could want from a great selection of fresh fruit, yogurts and breads through to a varied selection of cooked food. We really would recommend this Hotel and will definitely be returning for another stay.

"Honest review"

User 06/08/2016

Stayed there for 3 nights in August. The hotel is a good 20min walk from the city centre but there is a bus stop at the bottom of the hill that will take you in to. Bus no 11 or 16. The hotel itself is very tired indeed and is badly in need of a refurbishment. The first room we were given 212 faced onto the road which was quite noisy when you had to leave the windows open as it was so hot. So no sleep that night. We asked to be moved and we were given room 209 the next day. This room was to the side of the hotel and a lot quieter but still so hot and stuffy. They do supply fans in the room which is something. Upon check in we were told breakfast was 7-9am which I thought was early but the second morning we found out it was 7-10am. The bar and restaurant is more modern and they have a nice patio area just outside the restaurant doors. Food was good and staff very friendly. The biggest issue for me was using a visa debit card. They ask for a copy of the card which is fair enough but what they did not tell me was that they pre approved the full stay * 510 an extra 25 pounds in the card. When we checked out we split the bill between us and I asked about the pre approved amount and was told that they would be immediately deleted and funds available on my card. Not so 2 days home and I am still waiting. They gave assured me that they have sorted this in their side and that they have discontinued this practice!! Overall it's not a bad hotel could not say that people should not stay there but it is in a poor state and really needs a new lease of life. Reasons to stay- friendly staff, good breakfast, on bus route. Reasons not to stay- run down, rooms so hot, a good 20 minute walk to the city.

"Good stay"

User 04/08/2016

Just back from a 3 day stay at the Best Western in Bluntsfield, Edinburgh. This hotel is a good 20 mins walk from the city centre and that is if you are a strong walker. You also have the choice of getting the bus no 11 or 16 into town. The bus stop is about 5 min walk after you turn left leaving the hotel down the hill on the same side. The hotel is graded as a 3 star and if that is based on the building itself then this is correct. It's tired, scruffy and the bedrooms really needs a make over. The bar and restaurant are more modern. The food is also quite good with a really good breakfast buffet. The rooms were quite stuffy as no air.con. We were first given room 212 but this room is facing the front and with single glaze Windows you just could not sleep there. However we asked to be moved and that was done the next day. Bathrooms small but very clean but no shower hats supplied so bring your own. Staff all around the hotel very professional and very helpful although we were told on check in breakfast was 7-9 but it was actually 7-10. Overall we enjoined our stay and would recommend it if you are ok with the walk into the city.

We stopped at the Bruntsfield for 2 nights on our way home , we were impressed with the room and the comfort.

We will be stopping at this hotel next time we visit Edinburgh.

My first time to Scotland/Edinburgh and I wanted to stay in a hotel that I knew would have standards, not been disappointed with my stay. If your happy to walk 15-20mins to the main touristy parts of Edinburgh i.e. the castle then this hotel is fine. I stayed in a basic double room, my view wasn't much but I only wanted the room for a bed & bath, to which was good; comfortable & clean. The staff are friendly and always happy to help, if they don't know something they will find the answer for you. As a solo traveler I would definitely recommend and be back.

Once again I stayed at the Bruntsfield Hotel, never have a problem when I stay at this hotel. always friendly, great staff , clean fresh rooms, great breakfast & just far enough away from the city centre , a good 20 min walk or a bus ride will take you into the city .Never hesitate to stay here, going back soon for a long weekend ...

We enjoyed our 2 nights in #105, as part of our Nat Hab trip. Room was very comfortable, and the food was good too. Not right in downtown, but close enough to walk. *Yummy lunch down the street at the Khartoum Cafe.

Dear rollingstone Thank you for the recent review. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Our location as you mention is perfect for those that want to be close enough to the city centre but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. We hope to welcome you back in the near future.

JohnMacSeville, Seville 23/07/2016

Used this hotel for one night stay. Situated in a very nice part of Edinburgh. Smallish but comfortable room with very comfortable bed so got a good nights sleep. Breakfast which was included in the price was excellent. Staff were great, especially as I left a camera behind after I left - I was able to retrieve it later with the help of the front desk. The hotel is a little way out of the city centre but its not difficult to get into town.

Warm, clean and comfortable room. Beautiful old hotel. Close to all amenities and perfect for my stay and onward journey to the airport. Don't know how busy the roads would be at rush hour as I left early in the morning. Would definitely stay again in the future.

Gary C, Rapid City, South Dakota 20/07/2016

The Bruntsfeld is within easy walking distance of the busier parts of Edinburgh. We had a room facing the road in front of the hotel and it was very quiet. The rooms are simple but comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant were excellent

User 20/07/2016

The Bruntsfield offered us a twin room at short notice after a flood in my flat. They upgraded us to an Executive room at no extra charge. it was at the back and had beautiful views. it was very clean with a lovely bathroom and toiletries. Breakfast was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. Highly recommended, and very good value.

Very nice hotel a bit from town center, but still in walking distance. Everything was fine, the wifi was little fuzzy to use though. One must register for 72 hours use, but when you reconnect within 72 hours, you need to run the registration process through E-mail agian, this was a little anoing. And If i should wish for more it should be a fitnes room.

Fiona Brown and her team worked tirelessly to ensure our family was well catered to and would definitely book again. A lovely area and walks across The Meadows a delight, Bruntsfield has many fine shops and restaurants

User 18/07/2016

My husband booked the hotel as a surprise over night stay as we were going to see Stereophonics at the castle. Long walk from train station, took about 40 minutes. Hotel appeared really nice as you walked up the bank. Check in was great & room was ready early. Reception staff friendly. Room was on 2nd floor over looking little terrace & we could see the castle. Room was a decent size with a large bed that was 2 singles pushed together. Once we checked in reception told us a quicker way to get to The Royal Mile which was over 2 large grass areas. Pleasant weak &I only took bout 15 minutes which was a lot better. Breakfast was really nice with a nice variety or fruits, cereals & pastries. Overall we had a lovely stay at the hotel my only fault would be the distance from the train station & main areas to the hotel.

Excellent hotel with very kind and helpful staff The room was large and comfortable and kept to a very high standard of cleanliness.

Code2, Zug, Switzerland 10/07/2016

We stopped here for two nights on our weeklong trip through Scotland. The hotel has a charme to it, coming from dated (in the best sense) architecture. The first floor is a bit of a maze, but the signs lead you to your room. Our room was decently sized, with a generous bathroom a half floor downstairs. The neighbours TV was easy to hear (but cannot tell how loudly they were listenijg). Breakfast buffet was rather average.

marklambson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Bruntsfield Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Code2 Thank you for your recent review. We are sorry to hear that you found our continental breakfast buffet average, as we have spent a great deal of time and effort on creating a buffet that caters to all tastes. As we can see from previous reviews, breakfast is certainly a highlight for most, and am sorry that it was not the same for you. If there was something in particular that we could look at please contact me via email on gm@thebruntsfield.co.uk I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Mark Lambson General Manager

Carolanneking, Bury St. Edmunds, United Kingdom 10/07/2016

Have just returned from lovely 4 night stay at this hotel. Good location - approx 20 minute walk to city centre. Staff all very polite and helpful. Breakfast was fabulous and the one dinner we ate in restaurant was also very good. (Edinburgh is absolutely full of places to eat so you don't have to eat in hotel). Lovely and clean throughout hotel and our room and bed were very comfy. Only negative was that we were at front of hotel and as it is situated on a very busy main road, there was a lot of noise from traffic - buses and lorries until very late at night. Don't stay at the front if you are after peace and quiet!

Dear Carolanneking Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. The team will be delighted that they made such a positive impression on you.

The room that i shared with a buddy was spacious and with wide window opennings fronting the main road leading to the city center and facing a big park suitable for early morning walk. The room as well the bathroom amenities were ample. The breakfast menu can be from the kitchen as a choice or from the set. Various choice of coffee from the coffee maker.

Lovely hotel on the edge of the city. Just a 5 minute bus ride away. Rooms clean and well equipped. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Staff also let us use their car park on the day we checked out til mid afternoon which saved us a fortune on city centre parking!

entraveler59, Saint Louis, Missouri 04/07/2016

Food and accommodations were excellent. Location does require about a 10minute walk to main area of Edinburgh, but reasonable price and the food/accommodations make up for the nominal distance. Staff all friendly and interesting in being helpful. Would recommend if you don't mind not being right in center of main tourism (I prefer, less crowded/noisy).

We stayed in the Bruntsfield for four nights whilst accompanying a group of choristers staying locally. Hotel was spotlessly clean, decor tasteful. The two rooms we booked were next door to each other, perfect when there's a boy who visits from room to room!! My room was beautiful- loved the boutique still decor. Room was cleaned perfectly. Staff friendly, lovely to go away and people speak. It makes all the difference. Breakfast was excellent.. Great choice of cereals, fruit, breads and hot food couldn't be faulted. Would certainly return here again!

Angus D, Morpeth, United Kingdom 29/06/2016

Attractive period building located in pleasant Bruntsfield area. Nice choice of nearby restaurants shops coffee bars & wine bars in walking distance to hotel, also close to Tolcross & on 5min bus ride to Princess Street. Hotel itself is smart inviting & clean with customer focused staff. Bedrooms I understand vary in size although mine - facing onto the pleasent aspect of Bruntsfield green - was spacious & comfortable, bathroom too was a decent size & a bath in which you could actually stretch out, bed was comfy too. Quite a bit a of traffic noise so if you're a light sleeper could consider a less attractive bedroom at rear of hotel. Cannot comment on restaurant meal as preferring to eat out but did have breakfast which was fairly standard & unremarkable. Free car parking in hotel car park - that's a bonus for Edinburgh.

David M, Arroyo Grande 28/06/2016

If you want a cold shower curtain on your bottom during your shower just take a room with a shower in the bath tub. It was not pleasant. Otherwise, the hotel is pretty typical...breakfast is OK. We won't stay there again, but once was OK.

Rockboffin, Swindon 28/06/2016

As a four star hotel the reception and approach is impressive, it is a well established hotel. I arrived late at night and had booked a standard room. The bed was comfortable , the room clean, fresh towels and a clean bathroom. The room was however in need of some refurbishment and a little tired, and the shower in the bathroom had a slightly dodgy thermostat but otherwise ok. The breakfast was included in the booking and was standard fare for what you pay. Overall a very good hotel and well placed for getting out and about. It is about a 20 minute walk to the Royal Mile and the visitor attractions.

"Nice staff but far too hot to be comfortable"

guy h, Redditch, United Kingdom 23/06/2016

The hotel look gorgeous from the outside and is welcoming. After a small hiccup with the reception staff not reserving the wheelchair accessible room as requested, I was given a very nice family room with the option to move the following day. The room was pleasant and plenty big enough. I could get in the bathroom but the bath proved a challenge too far. However the biggest problem was the temperature of the room, it was boiling. The heating wasn't on and the window was open but it was far too hot to be comfortable. There was a huge floor fan in the room so I had the feeling it wasn't a new issue. We ate in the bar that evening and the food and service was very good and reasonable priced. Despite leaving the window open and the fan on all night, I hardly got a winks sleep and woke sweating many times with no quilt in sight. Would I stop there again, well I would definitely eat there, but my two colleagues suffered the same issue with heat In their rooms, so I would have to say, not, but if you like a hot room, then this will be perfect for you.

Jane S, Cheltenham, United Kingdom 20/06/2016

Hotel is a 20 minute brisk walk from the centre or catch a bus from just outside the hotel. We had a very comfortable room of a generous size with bath and separate shower. Great beds so a good nights sleep. The hotel was quiet at night one of the benefits of being slightly away from central Edinburgh. Parking on site. We ate in the restaurant one night the food was better than the average offering for this chain and the surroundings modern bistro style. Breakfasts were good and portions generous. I requested gluten and lacto free food prior to my visit and this was provided. ??

I stayed two nights in business. The room was clean and comfortable. Although the hallway outside the room was dated decor-wise, the room was furnished in a contemporary style. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I asked to borrow an iron and one was brought up to the room in minutes, along with an ironing board. As I was busy and tired I ate in the restaurant the first evening of my stay. The food was excellent - easily the best meal out I had had in a very long time. It was so good that I ate in the hotel again on the second night - again another perfect meal. The breakfast was of a very high quality. Two waiting staff stood out in terms of customer service: Jean at breakfast and Rasa at breakfast and dinner - thank you. I would be very happy to stay here again either for business or leisure

Kingstonj75, Leominster, United Kingdom 15/06/2016

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the location in a very upmarket area of Edinburgh. For the price paid the hotel was slightly disappointing - the decor was a bit dull, furniture in the room not very comfortable.We were in room 202 which was a rather irregular shape and thus not greatly spacious or attractive. The lighting was not good. The worst feature was the noise from the next room - the TV was surely on the other side of what must have been a very thin wall as one could easily follow what film or whatever the occupants were watching late into the night! This was a feature of all 4 nights of our stay so unlikely to be caused by just one aurally challenged guest, but rather evidence of poor soundproofing.

Noni314, Saint Louis, Missouri 15/06/2016

In the US, Best Western is a mid-range motel experience--and sometimes worse! But this is a quality property, very elegant, great service and it a perfect location for exploring as it is walking distance from the Royal Mile and just across the street from the Meadows and environs. We had a very nice room, complete with coffee/tea, etc. We didn't sample the restaurant, but there is a full-service bar and dining area, too.

Stayed here on business. Great location. My room was at the front of the hotel so it is on the main road so a little noisy. Rooms were lovely though, very comfortable bed, plenty of room. Handy for city and surrounding areas. Breakfast was first class, they cook you a cooked breakfast fresh. Much better than buffet style that other places do. Overall a very nice stay. City prices, alcohol quite expensive.

My wife and I celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary and first trip to Scotland and had a wonderful stay at the bruntsfield Hotel, all staff were amazing, being friendly and courteous at all times. The hotel is clean and tidy throughout, with coffee and shortbread available in the foyer, the food and service is fantastic, and probably the best breakfast we have had on any of our travels, cooked fresh, with a wide selection available. We also ate in the restaurant and can recommend the gourmet burgers. Wonderful waiters and bar staff, we cannot praise them enough. Our room was a beautiful four poster superior double, beautiful quality bed linen and fluffy towels and robes etc. We will defiantly return to this fantastic hotel, a great location and everything you desire for a memorable trip to Scotland's capital

shaunmb1, UK 23/05/2016

Just returned from 2 nights at the Bruntsfield, I had read some good reviews on the place so hope were high and we weren't disappointed. We pulled up about 3.00pm on Thursday and got a parking space right at the front of the hotel, staff on reception really helpful and a speedy check in. we had room 122, right at the front on the 1st floor, a good sized room, enormous bed, décor was tasteful and really quiet. We decided to walk into Edinburgh and the staff on reception kindly gave us a local map with the walk highlighted, a mere 10 mins later we were stood on Princess Street so positioning of the hotel is ideal. After a good stroll round the shops and Golden Mile, we headed to Rose Street to sample a few bars and headed back to a gorgeous Thai Restaurant close to the hotel Thai Lemon Grass (see separate review). Breakfast is a buffet starter with masses of choice followed by various hot options, the food was hot, tasty and plentiful, so a good way to start the day with loads of staff on hand so no waiting for food or tea/coffee. Fast and efficient check out as we left on the Sat morning with all staff helpful and pleasant. If we do return to Edinburgh we will definitely return to the Bruntsfield and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Very nice hotel at a good price. About 15-20 minute walk to the Royal Mile if you take the walking path through the park. Plenty of restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel. Free parking but very few places to park. We parked and left the car there, walked everywhere. On premise restaurant with good food although there are better options for breakfast.

RossOrpington, Orpington 20/05/2016

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights whilst attending a conference at the EICC. I arrived about 1400 and was able to check in immediately. I was very politely greeted by the receptionists. Overall the staff were great, friendly and helpful. My room was on the first floor. It was a lovely room with big windows that acted like a greenhouse, trapping all the warmth from the sun. The room had a wardrobe, safe, two easy chairs, two bedside tables, large bed, desk and TV. Coffee and tea were supplied. Wifi in the hotel was good, reliable and reasonably fast for emails, accessing websites and downloading my daily newspaper. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate. However, it always took a minute or two for hot water to come out of the shower. Toiletries were very pleasant though tended to be changed daily even if only a small amount had been used. My room was at the front of the hotel and had a pleasant view towards a park. There was no noise from traffic on the road outside - the curtains were thick and reduced any noise and light. Buffet breakfasts were excellent with plenty of variety. Although the hotel information stated breakfast opened at 0700, I found they were always ready earlier and did not mind people starting their breakfast before 0700. I had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on the first morning which was good. On subsequent days I had a ham and cheese omelette which was lovely. The hotel is well located for visiting the main sites of Edinburgh, being 30 minutes walk from the castle, and 15 minutes from the EICC. There are plenty of restaurants nearby such as the Thai Lemongrass which is only a 100m walk. The hotel restaurant itself is good. I had no problems during my stay except on Sunday when my coffee was not replenished. I would certainly stay at this hotel again if I was in the area.

This hotel is ideal for walking into Edinburgh, across the Meadows, or up to Morningside. Great location and generally well placed...good views of Castle from some rooms. Food good especially breakfasts...probably best we have ever had. Lounges and bar very comfortable. Dining room good but sometimes a wee bit busy with breakfasts, however very good service.

LMW0610, Wales, United Kingdom 17/05/2016

Great location if you like to stay a little way outside of the city centre and walk in - about 15 mins through The Meadows (a lovely green, communal area). Bus routes are great and the hotel is happy to organise taxis. We walked the 10/15 minutes to Haymarket to pick up the tram service direct to the airport. Hotel room was very spacious. Slightly noisy in the morning - woken by a delivery lorry unloading in the side street next to us...but these things happen in a city. :-) Lovely atmosphere in the hotel with friendly, yet efficient and professional staff.

Check in took a lot of time. But after checking in it was a good experience. Room was clean and good prepared (soft towels, all kind of soaps, and coffee/tee on the hotelroom). Service is ok. Don't forget your that your electric stuff needs a special plug. I had to ask at the helpdesk for one and got it Immediately. Breakfast is okay!!! A very friendly lady served a very well scrambled egg with bacon and sausage. I'll come back when I go again to Edinburgh.

"Absolutely wonderful!"
