Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Bruntsfield Edinburgh
We just returned from a two day visit in Edinburgh. The hotel is not what we thought it to be. The receptionist gave us false information regarding breakfast times. Said until 10.00 but it was indeed only until 09.30. She did know know what Wi Fi was! She gave me a modem cable instead...... The room we got was on the top floor, with a very small window. The shower did not work! The bath had no hot water. Called the manager, he said the boiler was down. Next day we were moved to a larger superior room which was very cold, so we were supplied with a very old portable electric heater. The hot water arrived only after 6 minutes of running the water. The manager was kind to offer a free bottle of wine for all our troubles. Was rather disappointed.
Excellent hotel, great location
Stayed at the Bruntsfield for 3 nights, weekend prior to Christmas the hotel was fantastic, breakfast was very good with a large choice tried eveything which was all good, I can recommend giving the Haddock a go. The hotel facilities were very good, nice cosy area in the room adjacent to reception to sit and have a drink before or after dinner. The King's Bar downstairs was very good, great atmosphere and popular with locals which was very nice. All the staff we encountered were polite, friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. We hired a car so it was great to have on the doorstep parking, we walked into town most days and it took no more that 20 minutes, walking leisurely, through a very pleasant area. We took cabs in and out of town in the evening at a cost of approx £5 each way (with tip). Would recommend the hotel without hessitation and would definately stay there again myself.
We had booked regular double room, but in the early hours on our first night were woken by our neighbours having an almightly row. In the morning I inquired at the front desk how long they were booked in for, it turned out only one more night, I explained jokingly what had happened and we'd been hoping they'd be leaving that morning. The chap at reception immediately (no questions asked, no complaints made!) insisted that we be moved room to a fourposter suite. On our return from a day in the city we found all our bags had been moved and we had a fabulous hugh new room, which was lovely, with the most enormous four poster canopied bed, very high detailed ceiling, large bathroom and excellent choice of quality furniture. However the room we had occupied previously was very spacious and of a very good standard with a large bed and nice furnishings and we had been more than happy with it. It was a extremly nice gesture, much appreciated, particular as it was through no fault of the hotel.
wonderful hotel, we stayed 2 nights in a huge room wonderful breakfast and dinner. Excellent for access to main shopping area and theatre district.
Will definetley be staying here again.
The staff was wonderful. My friend and I had originally booked two nights in a hostel over a very busy weekend, but due to a "booking malfunction" were left stranded. We then tried the Best Western which was also full, but the receptionist was nice enough to call several other hotels - all booked. She then arranged for us to stay in the room that they usually reserve for the night manager. All of the staff were extremely kind and helpful. The room was nice and spacious, the hotel was very clean, and breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great Hotel, Big Rooms, Big Breakfast
We stayed here for two nights over the weekend. Room was huge by anyone's standards, certainly the biggest that I have stayed in Europe. Very clean, quiet and the staff were friendly. Breakfasts were excellent. Location is great, easy walking distance to all the main tourist magnets. Would strongly recommend and will definetly stay here again.
On a side note, there is no air-conditioning in the rooms so may not be too good on a really hot day.
We had a wonderful two night break staying at the Bruntsfield. Room was lovely, staff were friendly, location was excellent, bar was nice serving really good food and we would definately stay there again.
Brief one night stay at the hotel, very reasonable prices, hotel room was large and very spacious and had views of the park to the front, the decor on the other hand was a bit dated and could do with an overhaul, the bed was king size and was one of the most comfortablle beds we have ever slept in. Not a bad bet for a brief visit just dont expect anything too fancy.
Very nice room and the breakfast was awesome.
A very pleasant stay and I would certainaly stay again.
The access to the city centre is good too and in walking distance if you feel fit for a 20 minute walk.
Plenty of buses from the town or A Taxi for just over £4
Traditional Edinburgh Hotel
Very comfortable rooms and friendly staff. We had a rental car so enjoyed having a car park at a hotel so close to the city centre. The breakfasts were superb and we dined in the restaurant one night and enjoyed Scottish beef.
Comfortable and good location
We had a very comfortable short break in this hotel in April 2002. It has a lovely location looking over a park which you can walk through to the Castle and all local buses stop at the hotel. Bedrooms were spacious and well equipped (ask for one of their new wing rooms) and the restaurant served great food. The Kings Bar was very stylish and got very busy on Saturday night. All in all we couldn't really fault the hotel - the staff were great too.

... temp today only reached low 50's and at times we could see our breath. We will be so appreciative of the hot sunny weather which awaits us in Spain a few days from now. After we finished our lunch, we made our way over to the Royal Mile. We were still early for our tour, so took advantage of the spare time to check out some of the shops. Lots of the same things in all the shops, with pretty consistent prices....those being extremely expensive. We didn't really buy anything except for ...
This morning was a catch up morning especially for washing. Tomorrow we are off again so a bag full of clean clothes was necessary. After breakfast we went 'just down the street' to the laundromat. 20 minutes and several miles later we found it. Cheryl and I got a taxi to Edinburgh Castle, way too far up the hill to walk, though we probably would have got there quicker than the taxi. Massive castle ...
... again a masterful display of architecture and stone carving. Having no pounds left on us I unfortunately wasn't able to make the trek up to the top of the monument to look out but that's okay. We'd get a great view of the city from the top of Calton Hill. On our way to Calton Hill, Kara needed to go to the bathroom and this is still a point of great contention for her as we went into a mall and you literally had to pay 20 pence to get into the bathroom! ...
... most amazing sound ever. It could have easily been recorded, as the acoustics and sound that was omitted was absolutely stunning. I wandered around the nave, with the choir singing in the center, and wherever I went, their were people sitting in the pews listening. I even saw people with tears in their eyes, because they were so moved by the voices and music. There was a large bronze statue to John Knox, who preached here in 1559. Knox was called the great ...
