Why We Love It

  • City centre location, close to Princes Street and the Old Town
  • One of Edinburgh's period buildings with plenty of vintage features
  • The courtyard is a lovely oasis away from the buzz of the city
  • Breakfasts are typically hearty and include award-winning local produce

Map & Directions

The hotel is a five-minute walk from Haymarket railway station, where you'll also find the stop for the Airlink shuttle bus to Edinburgh Airport (the journey costs 7 pounds, or about CA$12). Alternatively, it's a 20-minute taxi journey to the airport. You can also take the tram from the railway station to Edinburgh Airport which costs 8.50 pounds (CA$15) roundtrip.

There is an underground parking lot with limited spaces behind the hotel. The cost is 12 pounds (CA$20) per day -- it's advisable to book in advance. Street parking is available just off Grove Street and is chargeable from 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday, but is free overnight and all day on Sundays.

The Brooks Hotel is housed in a 19th-century Gothic stone building in the buzzing West End of Edinburgh. It's "littered with sleek boutiquey touches," according to the Sunday Times, including faded tan leather armchairs, retro side tables, black chandeliers and stag antlers.

Edinburgh Castle is 1.6 kilometres from the hotel, while the Royal Mile, historic Grassmarket and the labyrinthine streets of the Old Town, with its vintage boutiques and cafes, are all a 10-minute walk away. Princes Street, Edinburgh's main shopping road, is even closer -- a five-minute walk from the hotel.

There's a pretty courtyard -- ideal for al fresco summer drinks -- as well as an honesty bar stocked with local whiskies. In the winter, enjoy afternoon tea in front of the log fire in the lounge. Breakfast, which includes award-winning haggis from a local butcher, is served in the stylish dining room.

Compact Doubles are snug, but perfectly big enough for an overnight stay, while Double rooms are larger and feature designer wallpaper, and a blend of modern and vintage furniture collected from Edinburgh's independent shops. The bathrooms are decorated with Victorian crackle glaze tiles and have de-misting mirrors and an eco shower. Rooms also offer free Wi-Fi, Hungarian goose down duvets, an iPod docking station and a flat-screen TV.

The lounge area
Other Comments
We enjoyed sitting in the lounge. This was very relaxing area to sit after a day of sightseeing. The breakfast was enjoyable with a fair selection. My partner found the mattresses abut soft for his liking. I myself had a good nights sleep. We would definitely look at staying at this hotel again in the future. Staff very helpful. Good location to Haymarket train Station.

It is value for money but wish we'd paid more to stay somewhere with lounge areas that were a bit less "tired"
