Stayed here with my boyfriend whilst visiting my sister. Really could not fault the hotel at all. Staff were extremely helpful and the room was just right. The lounge area with the Honesty Bar had an extremely homely feel to it. Hotel in general was very welcoming. Beautiful building. We had a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and this really was delicious. Safe to say we will be back.

The room had been recently refurbished and was lovely. The reception staff were very professional and helpful. I didn't have breakfast, so can't comment on food, but overall it was a great stay, and location was good too.

Comfortable room with very comfortable bed with loads of room. Next time I will seek out the lounge and the garden as I was so busy attending a conference I didn't get to see the rest of the hotel. Everyone was very friendly - I will return on my next visit.

Room Tip: I was on the third floor overlooking the street. There were heavy curtains which cut out most of th...

The staff and the local management were more than friendly: really devoted to the guests' wellbeing. The breakfast was excellent.

Here's the rub: on the website the hotel appears to be completely refurbished, and the insides of rooms have in fact been redone, aesthetically. But structurally, the windows are not double-glazed. While in bed, I heard the footsteps, yeah simply the footsteps of people walking in front of the hotel on the street!

The doors, walls and ceilings also let in all kinds of noise: footsteps of guests in the hotel, talking...

The fire-doors don't shut silently, they end up slamming and when people come back at 3 in the morning you get to hear it.

Room Tip: If you happen to be sensitive, better ask for a silent room in the back far from the street and fire...

Although I only stayed for 2 days, I will certainly come back to the Brooks Hotel in Edinburgh. The Hotel has recently been re-decorated in a charming and individual way. I enjoyed the living room in particular. The breakfast was delicious (even though I might have liked to have more vegetarian options). The Hotel is in the City Center, easy to walk. Staff was more than pleasant and attentive.
