Best Western Plus Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel

Reviewed 9 December 2013

We stayed here following a wedding reception at the same hotel. Everything was lovely, from start to finish. When we drove into the car park we couldn't find a parking space, so I popped into reception to ask for advice on where to leave the car. The manager immediately came out and moved his car so that we could get in. Once we were there we didn't need to use the car, though, as the hotel is on a very good bus route to the city centre, about ten to fifteeen minutes away. Our room was great - cosy and clean, and very spacious, as were the bed and the en-suite. Staff were really helpful, breakfast was good. All in all it made an ideal venue for a wedding reception.

I recently crashed on the floor of the room where one of my work colleagues was staying in as I was meant to get the last train back to Glasgow after a work night out.

I'd had a few drinks beforehand and fell asleep on the carpet and woke up not long after. In my state I thought I was in my own room when I awoke and walked outside and the door closed behind me before I realised what had happened. I ended up disorientated and lost track of which room I was in so fell asleep in a chair. I was freezing and only had a t-shirt on and trousers (good job I had something on!).

I was woken up by one of the staff asking nicely what room I was from...At the time I couldn't remember and couldn't remember the name of my colleague...by this point, I'm sure most places would have thoght I was just some random drunk and thrown me out...the chap that I was talking to came back with a blanket (bless him) and let me stay on the chair and I went back to sleep until not long after he came back with a key to a spare room and let me stay there without asking me for any money for a deposit or anything!!!

I was too emabarresed in the morning to say anything and just quietly went back to Waverly and caught a train back home.

I can't thank the Bruntsfield and their staff enough and can only say that if anyone was considering staying there then they'd be in amazingly good hands.

Thanks Bruntsfield from the bottom of my heart.

Graeme.

I have to say what a please it was to stay here. For less than the price of a well known group of travel hotels/inns you can stay here. Fantastic staff, my particular thanks to Robert the barman for making me feel welcome, appreciated and special. He truly is a credit to the hotel. The rooms are of a generous size, well appointed, clean and comfortable. The food in the Bisque restaurant was very good. It was nice to see a different range of beers on offer in the bar as well. Made such a change from the usual run of the mill stuff. Breakfast was a pleasure, good selection of both hot and cold choices.

Will I stay here again? I most certainly will!!!!!!!

I am a regular visitor to Edinburgh (at least once a month) and have stayed in several hotels. the Bruntsfield fits the bill for convenience, cost, comfort and the staff are charming and I have now stayed there several times. The Bistro serves good food and the staff looked after my 96 year old mother so well. couldn't have been more helpful.

We always stay here when we decide to pay Edinburgh a visit. It is clean, warm and comfortable with friendly and helpful staff, good food, convenient for going into town, to visit friends, to go to the theatre or cinema and good transport right on the doorstep.

I stayed at bwp bruntsfield in october and decided then i would have to return! The staff were attentive, friendly and polite.

For that reason i changed an existing booking so i could stay here again. As a regular business traveller it is one of tge best decisions ive made in regards to hotels.

Check-in was seamless. Room was comfortable and spacious (116) as was my room on a previous stay (112) and very comfortable. As per many other reviewers i cant fault the comfort of the beds. At the end of a long working day, to sink into such a comfortable bed, tv in the right position and a cuppa in hand, it is just what is needed.

The bisque brasserie... brilliant as always... food quality, service and knowledge of the staff. It is clear that they work as a team and not just people on the payroll. A sign of a hotel that either a) knows how to provide good service, b) truly looks after its staff and therefore its natural or c) both!

In summary; i changed a reservation with another hotel to stay here again. I was very pleased by doing so, although not surprised. 'Staff' are brilliant and its one of the most hassle free comfortable hotels ive stayed in for a long time. I just wish i travelled to Edinburgh more often!! Keep it up and go for your 5*, you deserve it.
