We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. Location was excellent. Host was very helpful and welcoming. Room was comfortable, clean and very quiet. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of choice.

Excellent position, Free parking, Warm welcome, Lovely Breakfast. Rooms were nice and warm on a wet cold November day.
Slightly difficult to find as my tom tom could only find numbers up to 20 for Broughton Place.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 3. Large bathroom. Room quite spacious and looks out over the back of the property s...

Apart from the size of Room 1 and the bed - both small - we really enjoyed our visit. A great and informative welcome, ideal location and very good breakfast. Despite the tram disruption an easy walk to the Royal Mile and other sights.

A friendly welcoming clean B & B. The best breakfast I have had in a long time. Would stay there again and recommend it to any one. The Hotel is in walking distance of all the main attractions, but is in a quiet area so sleeping was not a problem.

We chose to stay at the Broughton because of its convenient location, reasonable rates, and having a free place to park (quite a rarity so close to the city center). Though the property was rather difficult to find in the dark (mostly due to detours, as the city streets were being torn up for a new tram system), our room seemed quite smaller than it appeared in some online photos, and the bed was hard as a brick, the hospitality and charm of the owners, Fiona and Freddie, more than made up for it. Knowing that we would have to depart quite early for our return flight, Fiona assembled a breakfast "care package" and left it in our room the night before. Our hosts were especially helpful in recommending best ways to get around town. The name has been changed to a townhouse or guesthouse -- much more fitting than a hotel -- so with the right expectations and proper frame of mind, the Broughton would be a most enjoyable place to stay.

Hi Sorry you found the bed a bit hard they are orthopaedic mattress's that we use through out this establishment and are chosen for there quality and firmess so they are beneficial for backs and muscle complaints/ problems I can only assume you are one of the lucky persons who can enjoy a good nights sleep on a big fluffy mattress (unlike the vast majority of us) I do hope it did not spoil your stay and we really appreciate your kind words and hope to see you again sometime.

Regards Freddie

This is the second time we have stayed at this Hotel. Owners are like 'old' friends and we enjoyed our chats with them. Great walking location into Edinburgh with car parking at the back which is a bonus. Accommodation is older but is good value for the price. Breakfast is always lovely. Would recommended.

Hard to say a bad word about this place. Excellent location. Reasonable prices. Friendly and helpful staff (Fiona is a gem!). Rooms a little small, but to be expected for price and type of building. Beds were super comfy, and most amazing of all - so quiet you would have sworn no one else was staying there. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: No elevator, so if stair climbing is an issue, ask for a room on a lower floor.
