The Best Western Braid Hills Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Edinburgh, which enjoys a delightful, elevated vantage point overlooking the city. Just 2.5 miles from the city center itself, you’ll be in the enviable position of having its many attractions nearby, whilst being away from all the hustle and bustle. This traditional Edinburgh hotel also has ample free parking and sits on a main bus route to the city center. In addition to the breathtaking views of Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and the Firth of Forth, you’ll be within easy reach of the city’s other beauty spots. Just a short trip away, you can find iconic attractions like Holyrood Palace and the Royal Yacht Britannia. You’ll also be able to take in Princes Street Gardens, top class museums and plenty of shops at the heart of Edinburgh. It’s also a city where there is always a festival happening – and not just the world-renowned comedy festival in late summer. This is just one of the reasons why Edinburgh is the cultural jewel in Scotland’s crown. The capital is a great place to explore other parts of Scotland, with its excellent road and rail links. From the hilltop position of the Best Western Braid Hills Hotel, you can see all it has to offer. Please note: Hotel ground floor rooms are only accessible by stairs.
Pros: Love the location. Just out of the city but still conveniently located. Car access easy but not sure about bus/mass transit to and from the city
Cons: No lifts (but what can one expect with a 130+ year old hotel).
Pros: We payed to have breakfast included in our stay and it was well worth it. All the staff were friendly and help full. We brought our own bed for our 1 year old and the cleaning staff even made that bed too.
