                Speed of breakfast and checkout

                Poor parking, no bath, room furnishings and bathroom in need of upgrade. Bathroom grubby.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was lovely.

                Room was above party room and bar. Parties both nights we were there and the music entered our room as if we were at the party. When we called the desk (reception) to seek a remedy we discovered that it is closed after 11 pm. Music ceased at midnight.

              • Older travelers
                5.8

                Location. Easy access to the City.

                The whole place needs refurbishment. Everything looks 20 yrs old. Room decor was tired. Breakfast was tinned fruit, cereals and cooked breakfast. Not much fresh fruit. No fresh bread or fresh juice.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Nice food in the resturant and friendly staff who could not do enough for you. The cooked breakfast was excellent,

                It was nearly all excellent

                No lift and plates at breakfast weren't hot

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Comfortable, clean, well priced and staff very helpful.

                No lift.

                Enjoyed everything about my stay at BHH. Would reccommend.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                room was ready early and we were able to check in earlier than expected.the hotel has a bit of character/charm about it.reception and bar staff were the only staff we had any contact with and they were all pleasant,helpful and attentive.

                the only slight negative is,if you want to be right in the heart of things,its quite far out from the city centre, about £10 in a taxi.but like i said only slight,we knew that before we booked.

              • Single
                9.6

                The location is excellent. I like the cosy atmosphere and the decor. The dining room is beautifully situated. The bar actually serves crisps FREE with the drinks.

                The rooms are looking a bit shabby now and need a bit of TLC .. not to be modernized ... simply to be refreshed. This time my bathroom was a bit dusty and there were stains on the floor which were removable.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                Very pleasant staff, room comfortable and clean, good service. Easy access to Edinburgh either via excellent bus service or pleasant walk via Morningside taking in the small eclectic shops and cafes on the way

              • Family with children
                5.4

                Staff was friendly and nice. Bar was nice and the staff there was good.

                The rooms are in serious need of updating. The beds were not comfortable-- could feel the springs/coils through the mattresses. Bathrooms are sparse and the shower is very small--not good for anyone that is very tall. No elevator--and I don't believe that is mentioned in info for the motel. First time to Edinburgh-so had nothing to compare when we arrived, but stayed in 2 other hotels that were a much better value for the money--this motel is actually quite expensive in comparison considering all aspects. Good location for our needs (wedding reception nearby) but there are much better locations if you are doing all attractions in Edinburgh

              • Couple
                10.0

                I love the Decor, so many hotels are trying to be modern whereas this had class and style. Hotels are rarely classic these days and the portrait and chandelier lined hallways are fabulous.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Really enjoyed our stay there. The staff were helpful and friendly, room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. It was also on a very convenient bus route to Edinburgh.

                Although the bistro was convenient and reasonably priced, the menu was very limited and unimaginative.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                Receptionists were both very friendly when I arrived, chatting and laughing with me, very relaxed atmosphere in the Hotel. Hotel is charming and very comfortable. We will definetely stay here again. Easy to find, easy to get into the city centre. Highly recommended this hotel.
