What’s Included

Victorian landmark hotel

Pentland Hills and city views

Voucher for tea and mini-scones

Prosecco and chocolates on arrival

We love the Edinburgh Festival as much as any culture vulture, but there’s something to be said for the capital when it’s not on. The elegant architectural splendour of one of Europe’s great cities is so much easier to appreciate when unobstructed by a clown from Cambridge shoving a flyer at you.

Part of the appeal of an Edinburgh break is exploring the less obvious parts of the city. Today’s Big Deal offers a comfortable break in the Braid Hills Hotel situated loftily on the southern edge of the centre, where refined Morningside makes its leafy approach to the Pentlands.

The Braid Hills Hotel is a local landmark, noted for its distinctive towers, stained glass, original Victorian cornicing, and for its vantage point overlooking the city and the hills.

It makes a comfortable and elegant base for a break in the capital, with the centre just 15 minutes by bus, and the delightful shops, cafes and bars of Morningside just a short walk away.

Victorian grace

Available Sunday to Thursday, today’s Big Deal offers a two night stay for two people in a classic twin or double room with full Scottish breakfast and a welcome gift of two mini bottles of premier Prosecco and chocolates on arrival.

Classic rooms are furnished and decorated in a simple, traditional style, and feature free wifi, flat screen TV and en suite bathroom.

Dining options

The offer includes a voucher for tea and scones at the Buckstone pub and kitchen, adjacent to the hotel, which is also a popular choice for Sunday lunches with walkers fresh from the Pentlands.

The hotel’s 1886 restaurant offers traditional Scottish gastropub fare, while the Edinburgh bar is a relaxed place for snacks, sandwiches and sampling some fine malts.

Relaxing location

If you want a break from exploring the city, there are enjoyable scenic walks from the hotel around the Hermitage of Braid, with woodland and burnside trails, surprisingly close to the city. For more ambitious hikers, the Pentlands are very close.

Contented guests

The Braid Hills Hotel has plenty of positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Recent contributions include the following:

‘Our room was gorgeous with a great view, one of the nicest hotels we’ve stayed in and only 10 minutes from the city centre! Staff were lovely and always had a smile on passing.’

‘Such a beautiful hotel with lovely well kept grounds and stunning views, meals were all great, the room was beautifully decorated. Receptionists, bar staff and waiters were very friendly and helpful, I couldn’t praise them high enough.’

Capital comfort

For an Edinburgh break with a difference, today’s Big Deal at the Braid Hills Hotel offers the best of both worlds. You are a short bus ride away from the sights and cultural buzz of the capital, while enjoying the tranquillity and views of the leafy setting.

It’s a great way to enjoy Edinburgh in the relative sanity of winter, before those culture-loving hordes descend once more.
