Why We Love It

  • It's in the city centre, close to Princes Street & the Old Town
  • Stay in 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 & include award-winning local produce

Map & Directions

The hotel is a 5-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). 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, return.

There is an underground car park with limited spaces behind the hotel. The cost is £12 per day -- it's advisable to book in advance. On-street parking is available just off Grove Street and is chargeable from 8.30am-6.30pm 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 one mile from the hotel, while the Royal Mile, historic Grassmarket and the labyrinthine streets of the Old Town, with its vintage boutiques and cafés, are all a 10-minute walk away. Princes Street, Edinburgh's main shopping road, is even closer -- a 5-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. There are three family rooms that sleep up to four people.

The hotel is a good walk from the city centre but is well served by buses - a day ticket costs £4 (£2.50 with a train ticket)

Location was a little out of the central area, but if enjoy walking it was fine. Buses ran past the end of the street, convenient if it was raining. Food was nice although the breakfast buffet table became short during the last hour of service. Hot breakfast was cooked to order so required a wait which was rather long when it got busy, plus the 2 boiled eggs we ordered then arrived very raw, but they happily replaced them. Our afternoon tea was very nice & the lounge setting with a fire was very comfortable. The bedroom was also comfortable but had no heat on at all when we arrived & we were unable to turn on the radiator or towel rail in the bathroom. It seems these were programmed & locked, but they had activated them and the room was warm on our return. We only had one bath towel & asked for another & 2 hand towels, housekeeping seemed rather reticent to provide these, one more bath towel arrived & then we asked again for the hand towels, which did then arrive. The following day we were back to 2 bath towels. Overall as we had a voucher for this hotel we felt we did get a good deal and would consider staying there again if a similar deal was available.
