Why We Love This Hotel

  • Brooks Hotel is less than a 20-minute walk from Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town
  • There are plenty of vintage features in this period building, including antique fireplaces
  • The courtyard is a lovely oasis away from the buzz of the city
  • Hearty breakfasts include lots of local produce

"The relaxing, laid back atmosphere."

Brooks Hotel Edinburgh 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 Old Town, where you'll find the Royal Mile, historic Grassmarket and a labyrinth of cobbled streets, narrow alleys and steep staircases, is a 15-minute walk away. Princes Street, Edinburgh's main shopping road, is around a 20-minute walk from the hotel.

The hotel has a pretty courtyard as well as an honesty bar stocked with local whiskies. The hotel has a log fire in its lounge, which is ideal for a cosy afternoon tea. Breakfast, which includes award-winning haggis from a local butcher, is served in the stylish dining room.

Compact Double Rooms are snug, while Standard 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 goosedown duvets, an iPod docking station and a flat-screen TV. There are three family rooms that each sleep up to four people.

Wrong on very many levels the owners should send 'secret' guests to stay as it promises much and delivers little. One example Breakfast is a farce the specials are lack lustre (when available) a spring onion pancake was one days 'special' and it was undercooked! I Could go on but there were too many mistakes here to mention.

We liked the different rooms available for sitting and eating in. Very good that we were able to leave our luggage and return to the hotel on the last day and still feel welcomed.
