Best Western Plus Edinburgh City Centre Bruntsfield Hotel
Ranked #23 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This was the first hotel we stayed in while on a tour of Scotland and northern England. It was by far the best in every way. The location was an easy walk through a park across the street to the Edinburgh Castle. The room was comfortable, the bed was perfect and the towel warming rack was a new experience. The dining experience was delicious. Breakfast had more choices than I could graze through in the five nights we stayed. I especially enjoyed the self-serve espresso machine. Every dinner entree was delicious but especially the steak. I especially appreciated the attentive staff who made our introduction to Scotland a joy and our stay most comfortable. We will come back again for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and this is where we will stay.

Stayed one night to see the Tattoo. Hotel in within easy walking distance of the centre of Edinburgh. Room was large clean and very comfy. Staff were friendly. Would have no hesitation in staying again

We had three nights here, but as this was partly for visiting friends we did not take full advantage of this hotel. What we had, and saw, was superb. The staff cannot do enough for you, and our impressions were entirely excellent.

Parking can be an issue, but there is one space that no-one wants, and my husband is brilliant with his parking and can reverse into any space that is a foot longer than the car, so we had it for two of the three days, having been lucky on arrival !

Our room was on the front of the building, so traffic noise might be a problem for some (but not us !).

There is a superb Indian restaurant five minutes up the road (Himalaya - see separate review).

We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Probably quieter at the back.

We stayed here as a family of 4 (kids aged 10 and 16) in the same room. Sometimes hotels stuff as much furniture in as possible and you can move for beds. Not here!! The room was MASSIVE! The staff were all brilliant too, especially the guys in the bar. Food was great and not overpriced. Really relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were expertly cleaned everyday. The only downside was that the room was roasting but this was due to unuasually hot weather and no air con. There were 2 fans that were supplied with the room which helped a little. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Fab stay, great location, 15 min stroll to castle, princes street. Although bruntsfield itself is a lovely little part of town and a 20 minute walk to Morninside which is great too. Happy family!!

Booking our trip to Edinburgh we found few available rooms during the festival. We ended up further from the center of town, and I was very anxious about choosing The Bruntsfield. Upon arrival, I realized my fears were not needed. Equipped with a lift, nice front desk attendants, the room was spacious and comfortable. Excellent insulation from noise, we were surprised to see neighbors exiting rooms the following morning after hearing nothing from the hall. During a surprise summer heatwave, they had two fans for our room which made a huge difference.
Lastly, nice breakfast we purchased in advance with the room (I highly suggest you do this) is well worth your time and money. I'd absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side will get plenty of sun- very warm in both the summer and winter. Be advised...
