Excellent hotel close to city centre. Room was well appointed with very big bed. Guest lounge very comfortable with an honesty bar. Delicious Scottish breakfast. Our only slight issue was the noise from the reception desk (as we were in room 100 just by the front door) and heavy footed guests above us. Will consider staying again when we next...

Pleasant hotel and unpretentious. 20 minutes walk to Princes Street and City Centre. Room was clean and tidy but lacking in attention to detail i.e. when we arrived no loo roll and unbelievably no loo roll holder in bathroom. We had to ask staff for loo paper. One half of wardrobe door hanging off and no instructions for operating radiators...

Welcomed by the young reception who went out of her way to be of assistance .We feel she deserves special mention. The room was comfortable and clean with excellent shower. The bed for me was a bit soft but we slept well. Breakfast variety good but porridge a bit too milky. Not centrally situated but easy enough to get to...

The hotel advertised off street parking, but they didn't say that this was only a few places and we ended up in the multis storey. Cost £37. We paid for an upgrade to a superior room.What we got was a joke. The king size bed was two singles pushed together. The wardrobe was actually a pole on the wall. This...

Had a great wee overnight stay at Brooks Hotel. Staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a delight and made to order so all very fresh on your plate. Room was spacious and bed was very comfy. Hotel itself was a beautiful building with lots of original features and the stairs had lots of old mirrors hanging which flashed...

We arrived later in the afternoon but we were still offered the afternoon tea and Prosecco as it is normally only available from 2-4 pm. , we never took the afternoon tea but...

Nice hotel, friendly staff and very helpful. Accommodation and hotel good. Quiet location accessible to all public transport, 20 minutes walk to the grass market. Good base to explore the city. Hotel will store your bags before checking and after checkout giving you the freedom to make the most of your short break.

Did the Wowcher deal - train from Durham-Waverley-Haymarket. Short walk arrived just after 12.00am no problem leaving cases until check in. Given map of area- short walk to Grassmarket. Buses 1 and 34 run from just around corner from Hotel. Will get passes next time £1.60 to Princess St or £4.00 for day pass- worth getting. The Hotel retains a...

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.
