Three visits in three years - and Brae Lodge is still my first choice!

5 on December 29, 2016

I first discovered this little gem of a guest house in April 2014, when I stayed at Brae Lodge for 4 nights. It was such a friendly yet professionally run family business, I had no hesitation in returning to Brae Lodge for a 2-night stay in October 2015. The accommodation was outstanding once more: same excellent standard of room cleanliness, sleep quality, cooked breakfast and overall customer service, and the homemade toasted bread was a great addition to the menu. Last month, the pre Christmas get-togethers with family and friends brought me back to Edinburgh. I contacted Brae Lodge straight away and booked in for 3 nights. The small double room facing the rear was described on the website as 'cosy' but the room offered all the standard traveller essentials, plus enough homely extras to upgrade this lovely guest house from basic single-night stopover to comfortable multi-night accommodation. And it's absolutely true to say, the "standard traveller essentials plus homely extras" were not just apparent in my double room and on my breakfast plate (the veggie cooked breakfast was to die for, I ordered it twice - and I'm not even vegetarian!). The strong desire to achieve the perfect home-from-home environment was also apparent in the amazing customer service provided by my charming hosts. With excellent public transport (and free car parking) on the doorstep, you can enjoy the delights of the bustling city centre before returning to a comfy bed and a great night's sleep. As an honorary 'sassenach' for the last 30 years, it's a joy to cross the border and still find the traditional Scottish hospitality that I grew up with all those years ago. I've been a guest of Neil and Lesley three times over: this time around, I can't help feeling that I checked in as a visitor, but I checked out as a friend. Will I be back in 2017? - you bet!
