My husband and I spent two nights at the South Braid Best Western. We didn't spend a terrible amount of time in the room, as it's location was close enough to all the "attractions" Edinburgh has to offer. Granted, it is about a 2 mile walk to Old Town, but very much worth it, especially if you're lucky enough to...

I stayed at the South Braid Hills hotel twice during my vacation to Scotland at the end of April (2 nights on my own and two nights with a tour group). On my first stay, I was so blown away by my room that I was tempted to ask if there had been a mistake and I'd just been given...

Returned to hotel as I was training at Royal Edinburgh hospital and this hotel is close and comfortable. The food is good and well prepared and the staff are attentive. The rooms are very comfortable and I got an upgrade room this time which was a surprise as it was for the same prise as I booked. The menue has...

As a Glaswegian I regretfully admit that I have rarely visited the capital, I decided that this had to change. I used a third party website to book an overnight stay on Tuesday 2nd May 2017 with my partner, not knowing what to expect we just jumped in the car and headed towards Edinburgh. On arrival it's apparent how much...

Great room, friendly staff, nice general atmosphere. Unfortunately tries a little bit too hard to be 'posh' which I think it probably once was. A lot of the clientele seem to be the older generation enjoying a bit of 'class'. In all honesty, it's a good hotel for the money, but for me, a little more homeliness, rather than the...

As a regular visitor, I was pleased to be staying at my favourite hotel. Staff friendly as ever. Atmosphere, warm and welcoming. The menu has been slightly changed from earlier in the year, although no real revelations. I still think a better offering of bar food plus the return of daily specials in the restaurant would be an improvement. Sorry...

We booked a family room for ourselves and two children. A girl of 13 and boy of 11. The one sofa bed provided for the two of them to sleep in together was not adequate. They didn't want to squash together and sleep on the same bed and I couldn't blame them. I telephoned reception to see if there was...

We were here overnight, the room was modern & clean, quite spacious too. Staff were welcoming and helpful. We had a light lunch when we arrived, it was ok, but bit overpriced. We didn't eat in restaurant at night. The breakfast was ok.

We had booked 7 nights at this hotel but checked out after one night. We had never been to Edinburgh before and when we arrived at hotel after flying from Dublin we were almost laughed at because we had arrived too early to book in. It was 11.30am.
