The Links Hotel is set in a charming corner of central Edinburgh, with views over the Bruntsfield Links Park (a large park area in Edinburgh, just next to the even larger Meadows area). The Links Hotel had a lot of money spent on it before it reopened in 2011. The new management team also have a wealth of experience in running hotels, and it shows. The Links Hotel is spotless and immaculately designed with cool furniture, enticing textiles and warm colours.
