Positive Reviews

Getting to the heart of things is easy

Best Western Braid Hills is in a great location Even though it's a reasonable distance to the city centre, there is a bus-stop almost directly outside the hotel, which makes it very easy to travel in Because it is slightly away from the middle of town, the area is nicely quiet.

It's a room with more than just a great view

The guestrooms are spacious and house a really comfortable bed Not only that, but most of them have a beautiful outlook And if your room doesn't have a view, then you can check it out from the dining room or the outdoor deck.

The food will suit your taste

There is a great choice across the different menus and the meals are served piping hot There's bound to be plenty to satisfy your hunger.

Nothing is too much trouble

The staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating They are always ready to assist you and nothing is an inconvenience for them.

Negative Reviews

Get ready for a leg workout

Apparently, because of the age of the building, it's not possible to install a lift, so be prepared to climb quite a few stairs to get to your room Not ideal if you are carrying lots of heavy luggage Ask a staff member to help you if this is the case.

Time for refurbishment?

Some of the hotel looks a little dated The bedroom carpets are threadbare in places and, generally, furnishing at Best Western Braid Hills could do with updating.

The shower isn't the best

The water pressure in your shower might not be the most powerful thing you've ever experienced However, the lack of power doesn't stop the pipes from being quite noisy, which might affect your sleep.
