From the moment of arriving very wet on a Friday night, we were made to feel like family. Kenny is the most wonderful host, he has time for everyone, is very caring and knowledgeable. The location is convenient, we walked every day to the Fringe stopping at the various shops on the way. Parking is plenty, free and outside the... More

Great location and Leith Waterfront is excellent for eating out. Room was nice but shower was a bit weak. The cleanliness was excellent and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast really let the place down, the cooked breakfast was OK but the sausages were cheap. The continental breakfast looked really bad, kraft cheese slices and nothing fresh available. The...

We stayed here one night on the way to the airport. Only half a hours drive and not too far from the city so the location is good. We had two family rooms - both spacious with good beds, plenty of hot water but it was a warm night and the noise from the road outside with the windows open... More

The staff were very kind and friendly, but our room was just not what we expected from a 4 star guest house hotel. We stayed in the family room at the rear of the hotel, in the attic. It was cramped for three people. The large bathroom blind didn't work very well, so it was either closed or open ...... More

My husband, 4 month old baby and I began our first trip to Scotland with a stay at Culane. Prior to our arrival we had a terrible incident with a rental car (it caught on fire, luckily a Scottish police officer was behind us), therefore when we arrived to Culane we were exhausted and stressed. The check in representative was... More

We had a great 2 night stay at this hotel. We had very good accommodation and excellent breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely couple who run it. The location is very central with the bus stop at the door which takes 10 minutes into the city centre and 5 minutes to the ocean terminal. Highly recommend and... More

I have been on June. It is a nice small family hotel, very clean with very nice people. They are very gentle and helpful. The room is spacious with grate view, very clean and luxurious in a very quiet area, even though is far away from the city center. Unfortunately the breakfast is too poor.

In a nice location opposite Leith Links, previously an old golf course now a park and general recreational area. There is a city bus stop right outside. The free parking advertised is on street parking, which, while we were there, was readily available. A very good hot breakfast, cooked to order, is available along with cereals and bakery items. We... More

We booked this hotel due to its location and the offered 24-hour reception as our flight came in to EDI shortly before midnight. In addition we informed the hotel about our estimated arrival time. But despite this we were welcome with "...10 minutes later and I would have gone to bed...? Great start! Our room was located in the basement... More
