"Littered with sleek boutiquey touches" -- The Sunday Times


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.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.
