How to Get There
The squeeze wanted to visit Edinburgh by train, but the ticket prices were prohibitive to say the least. So, I suggested we went by car, and booked via Wowcher. Glad we did, as I don't think we would have found The Brooks Hotel. The location for the centre of the city and all amenities is excellent. There is secure parking, at a small cost, and what is around and about is amazing. Although we did get the Scottish sunshine for our stay, we did enjoy ourselves.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was very good and afternoon tea with Prosecco excellent. The room was a little tight, the bed too soft and squeaky and smaller than we are used too, but we slept reasonably well. For cleanliness we cannot fault it. The shower was great but you could hear next door doing their thing. There was a hairdryer, and a small TV, coffee makings too. A little short on hanging space, but we were only here for 2 nights, so not a big problem.
This hotel is not far from Princes Street or the Castle. There are pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance or you can catch the bus from a nearby stop. All in all an excellent choice of place to stay. Would gladly revisit.
The staff were outstanding and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. The ground floor room was ideal for my wife who has mobility difficulties, although being at the front means some street noise was inevitable. The lounge was great with a well stocked honesty bar. Breakfasts were excellent with a huge selection. This hotel may not have the bells and whistles of a 5 star hotel but what it lacks in quality it makes up for in service and character.
I travel all over the world for work and often I am put up in brand named 5 star hotels. This time, I got to chose where I stay and I chose Brooks given it's reviews. It turned out to be a pleasant experience. Sure, not all the same amenities as you would get in a brand named 5star, but then they had this adorable, inviting and warm lounge where you could spend time reading next to a fireplace, and where I spent time after check out while I waited for my journey back to London to begin. They also have an honesty bar, where you take things as you please and write down what you got in a tab. So if you're looking for a comfortable and quaint local experience, this is a lovely place.
Also, I had a bit of a conundrum. After I departed, I realized I left my phone behind while I was waiting for my cab in the lobby. I called them up at the reception where they immediately found my phone and put it on a taxi to the station where I was waiting! Saved the day. Very kind and helpful staff.
