“Can't Wait To Come Back”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We stay in Edinburgh annually but our usual hotel was unavailable, so we decided to visit the Broughton Hotel. I am so glad we did. The location is brilliant, handy to walk into town, catch the bus or the tram. The area around the hotel is full of little cafés and bars. The breakfast is delicious and the hosts are extremely helpful. The hotel is small and old which means the rooms and particularly the ensuites are odd shapes but we thought this added to the charm. There is no lift which could be an issue for some visitors but Freddie helped my daughters with their bags when we arrived. The fact that we could leave our car for the duration of our stay was a huge bonus.

Room Tip: There is no lift so guests who may have difficulty with stairs should consider this.

The both of us really enjoyed staying at the Broughton hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. She told us the best places to go for a drink. Breakfast was lovely. They could maybe add more variety of cereal as there was very little choice. A lot more choice of hot food. Location was fine. It's a 10minute walk into the centre of Edinburgh, where the station is and the high street. The room was cosy and the bed was very comfortable. Excellent facilities are given in the room. Would definitely stay here again.

The positive things about the Broughton - Fiona and Freddie were wonderfully helpful, the parking was a bonus, breakfasts were good and cooked to order, the location was perfect, away from the crowds but walkable to everything we wanted to see. Lots of character in the townhouse and the neighborhood with many little cafes, bars, and shops.
The only negatives were that our room was very small and since we were staying 4 nights, it was difficult to unpack and find places to put everything. There was a nice shelf in the bathroom for items which was helpful. Also, being on the top floor proved to be quite hot as the temperatures in Edinburgh were unusually warm. There were no fans but we did get a light sheet to use instead of the heavy comforter which certainly helped. The pluses certainly outweighed any negatives and we were pleased that we had made the choice to stay there. The personal touch and attention given surpasses that of large hotels, and by the end of our stay the Broughton felt like home.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor tend to be quite warm if the weather is hot. Make sure the room size fits...

Just a few lines to say how impressed i and my party of 5 visitors were with the Broughton Hotel.
We stayed for 2 nights in this central and very comfortable Hotel.
There was plenty of places to eat and drink in the local area and only 5 minutes from the main Princess Street attractions.

The rooms were spacious and airy and very comfortable.
The Breakfast were excellent with plenty of choice and plenty to eat and set our self up fr the day exploring.

Freddie was a very pleasent host who could not have done any more to make all of us feel welcome and in explaining Edinbrugh to us. We will stay in the Broughton on our next trip to the Capital of Scotland

We stayed one night at the Broughton Hotel. The hosts were very friendly and helpful during our stay. Fiona informed us to park our car on the backside of the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. For the break first Freddie & Fiona offer a variety of different break first.
We would certainly stay there again and / or recommend to friends.

My stay at the Broughton Hotel was very enjoyable. The room was very clean and bright. The bed was very comfortable. The manager and his was were very nice and friendly. They were very informative about the different sites to go to in Edinburgh. The Hotel is in easy walking distance of the major sites in town.
