What a pleasure staying at the Braid Hil Hotel, we have stayed many times, but since it was taken over it now has the WOW factor. We are awaiting our best Western card, so you even get points towards future stays, how great is that.

The staff were welcoming. The hotel was all I had hoped for. The food was very good and excellent value. Getting into the centre of Edinburgh was quick and easy and going to Queensferry and over to Fife could hardly have been easier. I will use this hotel the next time I visit Scotland's capital.

The service and comfort provided was above par and after spending the day at some of the many attractions that Edinburgh has on offer it was great to return to the hotel to relax and plan the next day.

The staff are so welcoming and very helpful. A bright smile is a great introduction to any hotel stay. Nothing seemed to be a problem as they wanted to help with any questions asked. I would certainly visit them again.

“All rooms have been nicely renovated but some are better than others with regards to quietness - the best ones we have stayed in are those overlooking the top end of the car park - not the prettiest of sights but more peaceful.”
