Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Bruntsfield Hotel
Average city hotelfrom charidot
Restaurant has contemporary styling and the food was fine. Service, however, was erratic: At dinner people were being seated in a single area of the restaurant (the conservatory section) which made it feel cramped and lacking in privacy. When a partyy of 8 arrived the staff seemed to forget that I existed and I was left waiting ages for dessert (but they did give a complimentary whisky as recompense). At breakfast the staff were almost too efficient and my coffee and toast were cleared away whilst I was at the buffet getting a yoghurt!
There is a bar in the basement which was full (including non-residents) and was not relaxing - better to have a drink in the lounge or restaurant.

Opinion on Bruntsfieldfrom Mazrich
Pleasant stay and great breakfastfrom cuddlyelephant
The hotel is in a pleasant area overlooking a park about a 10 minute bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh. Buses come along every few minutes and stop just a short walk from the hotel so getting into the centre of Edinburgh is really easy and convenient. Its situated on a main road, so there is some noise, but its not as noisy as staying in the centre probably.
Breakfasts at the hotel are really good. A very good continental and hot breakfast is available, really nicely served and presented with lots of choice. You can have just about anything you want- even Haggis! A very full and generous breakfast that will keep you going well up to lunchtime.
We had one evening meal in the Cardoon restaruant in the hotel. The dinner menu is quite expensive(about £15-£20 for a main course), however, the food is great so we didn't mind paying for the convenience of eating at the hotel for this price as we really enjoyed our meal.
We were a little dissapointed with the Kings Bar- We were hoping to eat our evening meals here and were hoping for a more 'country pub' atmosphere, but its quite a smoky, busy and lively bar and is not that big. However to be fair to the hotel, is it advertised as a 'lively' bar, and its lively rather than rowdy.
There didn't seem to be a great choice of restaruants in the immediate area, but you are on a frequent and short bus route into the town centre so this isn't really too much of a problem.
Staff were polite and helpful
Would recommend this hotel, and stay here again- no major complaints.
Excellent - loved every minute!from cathm80
I would highly recommend the hotel for service, price and location. Just shop around as prices vary from website to website.
Friendly, efficient and convenientfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is a short walk from the centre of the city - probably about 15 minutes to the bottom of Princes Street (House of Fraser end) if you stick to the main roads. There are a few pubs en route if you feel like breaking the journey up! We also found another route to the centre which was more leafy and scenic and ended up by Waverley.
The breakfast at the hotel is very comprehensive - fruits, yoghurts, cereals, pastries and the traditional Scottish Grill (including Haggis if you're brave enough!).
The staff were fantastic throughout our stay - very friendly and efficient and there is secure storage for luggage if your room is not ready when you arrive. The portering service was as good as that at 5* hotels I have stayed at. I highly recommend this hotel and will certainly be booking again next time we visit Edinburgh.
No complaints at all 18/2/05from A TripAdvisor Member

Top Local Tips for Edinburgh
shuttle bus There is a shuttle bus from the airport to town. It does not go to all hotels, including the Best Western Brunstfield. I'd suggest a taxi from one of the shuttle stops to your hotel if you have heavy luggage. I had 2 piece of luggage AND hand baggage and had to manage all up 2 stairs onto the bus and then off again. In my view the taxi cost (used going back to the shuttle stop) was worth the cost!!
Castle gun Time your trip to the castle so you see them firing the big gun, I think it's at 1 o'clock every day
airport transfers when you arrive at the airport take the airport bus which is cheap return into the town centre neat the main train station however if you do have alot of luggage and do have limited mobility i would recomend with a great taxi company we went with called Thistle Executive who were more than helpful with us all.
