The hotel sits in a commanding position on the south-side of Edinburgh, with great views over the city. There is a lovely terrace outside the restaurant and lounge bar, which makes the most of the view, and in the lobby there is comfortable and ample seating. A frequent bus service to the city centre is just a couple of minutes...

We have visited the Braids on a number of occasions, and it just keeps getting better. They looked after us splendidly when my sister hosted her birthday party here in January 2016. The service they gave us was wonderful and the attention to detail was exemplary which made for a wonderful evening and a very happy memory for my sister,...

Very good staff but the hotel is looking a bit shabby and needs a bit of refurbishment. Food in the restaurant was reasonable value but is very basic and not the place to order a salad unless you like plenty of onion in it! Certainly not worth close to £100.00 for B & B, plenty of better places for similar...

The room was large and well appointed; bathroom nice design and fixtures. However, there were other rooms which were much smaller. Building was a large home at some point, Best Western bought it recently and remodeled, so all the rooms are different. They could have placed the furniture a bit differently, for TV viewing. Very quiet residential neighborhood, which is...
