Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights during April 2017. The hotel is a leisurely 20 minute walk from the city centre with various coffee shops and bars on route. The hotel did the job in regards to somewhere to sleep, however did not offer anything more. The ladies at reception barely mumbled 2-3 words to us during...

Stayed last year and going again in May. Lovely relaxed hotel..Love the lounge with the roaring fire. Honesty bar which I'm happy to say everyone was honest. Staff really nice and helpful. Only downside is that pillows on beds are if poor quality so my own will be travelling with me. Brilliant location as castle is very near and great...

Very nice hotel to stay in, not incredible but not bad either. Rooms were a nice size, breakfasts were pretty good, nice facilities, comfy beds and a lovely lounge area with an honesty bar (good touch). We had afternoon tea on our first day, which was good but wasn't worth £20 (3 sandwich quarters each, a piece of lemon slice,...

Visited Edinburgh for a long weekend and booked this hotel through Groupon deal, which included afternoon tea, a bottle of prosecco and late check-out. The hotel is located fairly centrally, near Haymarket station. If you're travelling from the airport much like we were, its about a 20 minute bus ride away from the airport. If you are happy to walk...

Unfortunately I would not describe this as "boutique bed & breakfast" We called to advise that our flight had been delayed and did not arrive 22:45. Check in friendly. Room on 2nd floor small but ok. Unpacked quickly to find only 2 hangers between 2 of us for a 4 night stay. Decided to sort out in the morning. Went...

Have stayed at Brooks several times and always found the staff helpful, the accommodation comfortable and the food good. Highly recommended as a stop for Edinburgh particularly. The rates are reasonable (this time we didn't get breakfast included for some reason ...) and I particularly like the honesty bar for a night-cap! Always our first choice for a quick stopover...

Loved the brooks hotel, location was perfect for me and event though I booked a small double it was plenty big enough and could even do my room workouts! (Sorry neighbours). The whole hotel is decorated beautifully and there's a lovely lounge and outside area. The honesty bar is a great idea and is very well priced. In room extras...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
