South Braids Hills Hotel
Our stay at the South Braids Hotel was okay. The hotel pictures on the booking site looked a lot more glamorous then the hotel itself when we checked in. We had requested for 2 double beds and ended up getting 1 double bed and a pull out which was not comfortable for my partner throughout our stay there. The wifi service did not work majority of the time we were there and we ended up going to different parts of the hotel to get a better signal. Our access cards for our room didn’t work most of the time and we had to go back twice to the reception for them to restart our cards. The location is not so bad to get into the city centre. Taking 1 transit bus for about 15 min should get you into city quickly. Overall, we weren’t too impressed by this hotel and don’t see ourselves coming back to stay here if we return to Edinburgh.

Frustrating
Comfortable, clean, convenient, it was my second stay at the Hotel however!, not being able to purchase a pint of beer due to issues in the store room as a result of “heat”, or order a meal from the kitchen at 20:15, as it was closed was extremely frustrating. Now I know why the hotel was so quiet.
