Located in the West end of the city close to Haymarket Station and the International Conference Centre, Brooks Edinburgh is just as stylish as its slightly longer established sister guest houses in Bath and Bristol.
Andrew and Carla Brooks, who own and run all three properties, are skilled at bringing together the ingredients needed to create a relaxed yet luxurious, contemporary guest house experience.
During 2012, the entire property was completely refurbished to an extremely high standard and it now has the elegant look that has become Carla and Andrew’s trademark.
Brooks Edinburgh is a ten-minute walk from Princes Street, the city’s main shopping thoroughfare, and iconic attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, the Scottish Parliament, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and a host of galleries and museums. This makes it a popular destination for discerning hen parties.
With a private dining room that’s perfect for intimate meals and gatherings, Brooks is also a stylish venue for a wedding reception or celebration.
Brooks Edinburgh is located in a gothic-style Victorian building oozing with period character. There’s a cosy, welcoming lounge for guests to relax in, which has an honesty bar offering a great selection of drinks, including whisky.
Brooks is one of the few places to stay in Edinburgh with a spacious courtyard garden, where guests can soak up the summer sunshine surrounded by Scottish flora and fauna. There are two computers for guests to access the internet should they wish, and there’s free wireless internet throughout the building. Car parking is available at a discounted rate at the NCP car park on nearby Morrison Street, and Brooks is a five-minute walk from the express airport bus at Haymarket. There’s a lift service to all floors.
The guest bedrooms are papered in beautiful Cole and Son wallpapers, and feature wood panelling painted in soft, Farrow and Ball shades. They all have flat-screen televisions with built-in DVD players; large, comfortable beds with pocket sprung mattresses and new, duck down bedding and pillows; iPod docking stations and clock radios; and a hospitality tray with tea and coffee-making facilities.
The bathrooms have sleek, new fittings and fixtures, including the largest possible Hans Grohe Eco shower cubicles, as well as fluffy Egyptian cotton towels.
Carla describes the interior decor at Brooks Edinburgh as ‘shabby chic’, but the emphasis is most definitely on chic and there are some quirky, retro touches in the beautifully decorated and furnished rooms.
Prices for the 45 double rooms range from £50 to £130 per night, and a single room is available from £45 to £100.
Breakfast is served until 10am in the light and airy breakfast room, which overlooks the kitchen so you can watch the chefs at work. All of the dishes on the menu are made with locally-sourced ingredients and there are a range of tempting options to choose from, including haggis for those keen to sample a traditional Scottish delicacy.
