Only when you book with Chic
Whether you’re in town for a game at Murrayfield, a show at the Fringe or a leisurely stroll around the Castle, Brooks is a great choice for your visit to Scotland's capital. This boutique B&B is all about comfort; from its inviting sofas and goose-down duvets to its warm and friendly staff.
Despite renovations, the 19th-century hotel has not lost its character, with modern décor that blends seamlessly with the original Victorian period features. The sweet courtyard is perfect for sipping on an ice cold drink in the summer, while the lounge’s fireplace is an excellent spot to warm up in during the winter months.
Fuel your day with a full Scottish breakfast in the mornings, which includes all the local favourites including smoked salmon and haggis. A lovely afternoon tea is also served, and snacks are available throughout the day.
For lunch and dinner, head into town; Edinburgh is chock-a-block with independent cafés, gourmet haunts and unassuming pubs. There is also an honesty bar, so you can help yourself to that all important dram just when you fancy it.
There are a variety of room types available, from the Compact Double (which does what it says on the tin and is probably best suited to one person rather than two) to the Family Room that offers two extra single beds – perfect if you're travelling with the little ones. Original Victorian features are dotted throughout, and some rooms feature bold wallpaper and antique furnishings.
Located in Edinburgh's Haymarket area in the West End of the city, you’re within walking distance of all the key sites at Brooks. Edinburgh Castle is just a 10-minute walk away, while Murrayfield Stadium is a 25-minute walk.
