Brooks Hotel Edinburgh
Ranked #86 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I stayed 2 nights while attending future son in law's stag do, the rabble were in the serviced apartments opposite.
Excellent value and a really nice pleasant hotel. I would happily stay there again when next in Edinburgh.
Breakfast couldn't be faulted with a huge variety, and nice friendly staff.
The room was a little small but as it was a place to sleep and not lounge around in it didn't matter.
All clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: Ask if they have larger rooms!

This really was a fantastic place to stay and it will be our hotel of choice now in Edinburgh. Service was first class (one poor guy trawled 3 other hotels for an iron for me as other guests were using the ones they had). The bedrooms, dining and sitting rooms were all really tasteful and comfortable. Lovey extras in the room like feature pillows, good quality beds, White Company smellies, thick, sumptuous towels etc. The breakfast was arguably one of the best we have ever had in any hotel - everything was homemade (muffins, granola etc) plus the hot selection and quality of ingredients was five star. You are a fantastic place Brooks Edinburgh - keep on doing what you are doing.

This is a great value and very close to the action of Edinburgh. All the staff were very friendly, especially Paul, the night deskman. This place is minimalist in many ways but exceptional in cool ways, such as in the "Honesty Bar" on the ground floor where you can pour yourself a drink and relax. The cook is a nice guy and appreciates compliments on his cooking. The breakfast serving staff are often too busy to do the job well so it can take some initiative on your own to get your food.

Room Tip: We got a room facing the courtyard and it was nice and quiet.

This is one of the best hotel experiences I have had. We stayed to visit the Highland Show. A warm welcome, all staff excellent. Stylish design, spotless rooms, great shower. Great location 10 minute walk to City centre. Highlight of stay is breakfast, fresh local produce, fresh berries on pancakes, best bacon I have tasted. Overall this hotel delivers an authentic 5 star experience should be graded much higher than 3 stars. My new hotel of choice in Edinburgh.

we were staying at the Brooks for the first time whilst on business for 2 nights in Edinburgh.
after our first night ,we came down and we asked if there was a fan available to put in the room as we were very warm in the night. we were told that they did not have one as it was unusual to be warm in Edinburgh! when we returned that evening and collected our key we were informed there was now a fan in the room. and lo and behold there was ! they had gone and bought a fan that day.
we have stayed in top class hotels throughout the world and none have responded to guest request so quickly and without fuss. this small detail earned our 5 star rating and our return custom.
the staff are excellent and are happy to go the extra mile.
incidentally , the breakfast is very good .

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the street

The hotel and the location are ok for the price, if you're looking for something not very fancy I'd recomend it. The breakfast is amazing, besides the normal breakfast they have this special options that are just delicious. I'd stay there again no problem and would recomend it. The staff is great as well!
