How to Get There
Very small room for 2 people on a one week stay. Three hangers in closet. Very difficult to move around. Maid service was spotty, had to call for towels almost daily. Room heater didn't work. Towel bar heater didn't work, even though staff fixed it after we called. We were awakened every night to the sound of loud voices outside. It sounded like glass was being thrown in a dumpster. Not a relaxing stay. While we were close to shopping and public transportation, the neighborhood was a bit sketchy.
The most disturbing thing was the use of my daughter's credit card. She paid for our food at checkout. I was under the impression the room charges were on my card. My daughter's card was charged after the fact for the room upgrade. It seems deceptive her that her entire card number was kept on file after checking out. A week later, a charge was made on her card at at Electronics store in Edinburgh. A coincidence, maybe, but still upsetting that her card number was captured and kept at the Brooks.
Checked in yesterday and staff were very friendly although check in was 2pm they checked us in at 11pm as a room was free and upgraded us from double to king. Breakfast this morning was served fast and was delicious. I would definitely recommend a stay here. Overall a good hotel.
I was excited to be staying somewhat close to the action in Edinburgh and chose to ignore the poor reviews of the Brooks Hotel. Sadly, I should have booked elsewhere! Our room was dingy and the shower was terrible (no water pressure). The floor was completely uneven and on a slant (and so dirty).
The receptionist we spoke with in the morning when we dropped our luggage (room was not yet ready) was helpful and pleasant. He even mentioned that they would make a "to go" boxed breakfast since we had an early morning flight the next day (and had breakfast included in our rate). When we returned later in the day the front door was locked. It was only 7:30pm, so not especially late. We tried calling the number on the note left on the door, but no answer. Another family had been ringing for 10 minutes. Eventually someone came to let us in - he was not pleasant. He was very annoyed that we had to get our bags out of storage and made it clear that we were inconveniencing him. He also said there was no way to get a to-go breakfast in the morning. Between the dingy room and the hit or miss service I would not recommend staying here.
Lovely hotel, clean and smart with a cosy lounge area, and friendly, helpful staff. I didn't have breakfast or dinner here so I can't really comment on this, but when you go direct you can get breakfast with your stay. Room was lovely, and I got a good deal. I arrived a few hours before I was supposed to check in and they took my suitcase and stored it for me so I could look around the city and said I'm welcome to use the lounge. When I got back after getting quite lost, I was happy to hear they had upgraded my room to a king-size.
Lovely service! Would definitely stay here again if I decide to come back, but I know my parents would be looking at visiting Edinburgh Castle in particular so I will recommend the hotel!
Thank you all :)
We stayed here overnight after a concert at the Usher Hall. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Usher Hall and there were plenty of eateries/pubs on our route. We’ve stayed at the Brooks Hotel previously and have enjoyed the afternoon tea/prosecco/breakfast deal both times. We paid a little extra for a four poster room this time and it was great with a good wet room/bathroom, the food was good and we found the staff polite, the only negative would be that our room was next to the front door on the ground floor and from around 7.30am on we could hear it banging repeatedly as people started to come and go. We would stay here again but request a different room.
