We enjoyed our stay in the Edinburgh Bruntsfield Best Western Plus the first week of June, 2013. My dear wife and I last stayed in the hotel almost ten years ago. Of that visit we have pleasant memories, and of this latest visit we were impressed as well with the accommodations, the staff, the restaurant, and other amenities. The Bruntsfield staff members who served us were helpful, friendly, and professional.
Our room, 102, was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The wi-fi is dependable and relatively fast. The restaurant is a plus, and serves a memorable full Scottish breakfast.
The hotel is across the street from the historic Edinburgh Meadows park and golf courses. It is within a half block of Lothian Bus stops, and the hotel is within walking distance of Princess Street and the Royal Mile--although the walks are long ones, perhaps 20 to 30 minutes or so.
The Brunsfield is, of course, a bit more expensive than many bed and breakfast establishments. We’ve had good experiences too with an Edinburgh B&B, but for the difference in costs, the increased services provided by the Bruntsfield make it a competitive option. For some travelers, the increased services might be a consideration as one makes a decision about lodging during a visit to one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.More
