Reviewed 27 September 2012

Very nice B&B. A little worn but a great location. Freddie & his wife go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable & see everything in Edinburgh. The breakfasts are SUPER! Plenty of places to eat nearby. A little far to walk to the Royal Mile but taxis are cheap.

We spent four nights at The Broughton Hotel recently, so we could go to the Edinburgh Tattoo. The Broughton Hotel is in a great location to explore the town. We were able to survive walking around Edinburgh all day on Freddies breakfasts, which were fantastic. Fiona and Freddie are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. When we go back to Edinburgh, the Broughton Hotel will be our first option. Thank you Freddie and Fiona

We only spent one night at the Broughton. It is situated in a good place for the Playhouse or for getting into the city centre. Freddie and Fiona were the very best of hosts. We were made very welcome. The room was very clean and quite modern.The bathroom was more than adequate and the breakfast was one of the very best that we have had in a B&B.

We recently spent a very pleasant 4 nights at the Broughton. It was ideally located for walking around the city. The rooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean. They are a little small, but more than adequate for a comfortable place to use as your "home base" while in Edinburgh. Freddie and Fiona made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts are delicious...they give you some very nice selections, too! Ask Fiona about the art work on the walls in the breakfast room. The story is very interesting. They will also give you good recommendations for dining. This establishment provides excellent value for the price paid. Thank you Freddie and Fiona!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. This is a very quiet neighborhood yet an easy walk to the center of the city.

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting Edinburg. We were 6 adults in total and all of us were more than pleased with the stay. Its familiar, warm and friendly and you feel welcomed from the first second. The help and service was at its best and so where every meal. When we are going back to Edinburgh we know exactly were we gonna stay, and thats with Freddie and Fiona at Broughton......

Stayed here for 4 nights on our visit to the Edinburgh festival. Only 10 minutes walf from Princes St, so very good location, being far enough away so that you could get away from the crowds if you wanted. Fiona the main host was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were superb.

Room was very clean, and restocked everyday with tea&coffee etc, Only small complaint was that we had the top floor attic room, so banged my head a few times!!

Room Tip: Avoid if possible the back attic room
