8/10 Very good

Good hotel but with shortcomings
A good hotel but needs to sort out leaky shower difficult to use toilet flush buttons. Not air conditioned, provided a noisy fan without a control knob. If your room is not near the lift then navigating steps with luggage is cumbersome.

8/10 Very good

Bed is too soft. No phone in room. Intermittent WiFi. Poor ergonomics: no luggage rack, toilet paper behind the toilet- should be in front of toilet. Toilet paper falls on the floor. Shower soap bottles fall out of soap holder continuously. Eco friendly is good. Staff is nice. WiFi program has white type on light grey background so impossible to read terms of agreement and very difficult to find the ‘I agree’ button. Should have black type to be able to read. Good location, fan available. Thank you.

Good place to stay in central Edinburgh
Had a nice stay at Bruntsfield. Central location. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again. The breakfast option was great with a la carte options.

10/10 Edinburgh Hotel Accomodation
The Bruntsfield Hotel was a pleasant suprise to say the least. The room we had was more spacious than any room I've stayed in in europe and for a very reasonable value. All amenities and shared spaces around the hotel were clean and organized. Washrrom and accomodations were also very clean and well maintained. The hotel is also a very accessbile to the main city center and the royal mile - maybe a 20-25 minute walk. It is also nearby the city siteseeing bus stops as well as Edinburgh's public transportation stops. I woul;d say this hotel is certainly a great accomodation for the cost and worth the extra steps from the city for a very comfortable and relaxing stay.

2/10 Poor

Never again!
Boiling hot room and only just over 20 degrees outside. No ventilation. Not nice to be in. Obviously housekeeping felt the same as they hadn't bothered to vacuum and generally surfaces were dusty or grubby. Room design leaves a lot to be desired too. Massive room but you can't see the TV from the bed and have to close the door to the tiny bathroom before you can stand at the sink. Only a queen-size bed too - plenty of room for a king. Last time I stayed, their excuse for lack of housekeeping was Covid. Now there is no excuse for charging £500 for two nights without breakfast or parking and offering a hot, less then clean room. F&B: We ate in the hotel one night. Less then two years ago this was a buzzy, pleasant place. Now, lacking in customers and atmosphere. Reason: Very average food - a lot less appealing then on my last visit. Service also haphazard. For breakfast: probably the worst 'Scottish' cooked breakfast I have ever had! Swimming in grease and most items deep-fried, tasteless and inedible. Grubby plates and silverware. Disorganised wait staff who didn't even ask if everything was OK when they took away what was essentially an untouched meal. (They must see it all the time ...) The only reason this hotel can get away with charging such a ridiculous room rate is because of the scarcity of hotel rooms in Edinburgh city centre in the summer. Very sad to see a place like this degenerate in such a short period of time. Never again!
