I stayed in Edinburgh for a short trip and found the Inverleith online. Despite mispronouncing it to the taxi driver, he knew where I meant and dropped me off at a well-presented building on the outskirts of the city centre. The service was fantastic - really friendly, welcoming staff with great local knowledge. They recommended a nearby restaurant which was... More

We stayed for 3 night over the Easter weekend ,we didn't want a purpose built hotel like the travelodge or premium inn so the Inverleith was perfect. Situated 20min walk from the Royal mile , we found great restaurants that we would of missed if we had stayed in the Center. If you like clinical spacious rooms , it may... More

Hotel and staff were very good and made for an enjoyable stay .The gentleman who booked us in,served breakfast, gave us information and travel tips could not have been more helpful .Edinburgh itself is a lovely city , we did the castle , the zoo [ well worth a visit ) and the botanical gardens .

Be careful a "small" double room at the Inverleith Hotel, is very wee indeed! - and the ensuite shower room is MINISCULE! - and it would have been good to have had some sort of heater in the shower room (perhaps just not enough space?) - and also a bath mat too! But, having said that - .... I slept... More

The hotel staff were as friendly and welcoming as you can hope for. Even at breakfast, when they were very busy with a full restaurant, the service didn't falter. I arrived to the hotel late for my check-in, and the hotelier still kindly took the time to talk me through the local guide and recommend a running route after I'd... More

This was our first trip to Edinburgh and found the Inverleith through tripadvisor. Absolutely would stay again! Really lovely little hotel - the rooms (or at least the one we were in) were quite small, but had everything you could want in it, the small space was well utilised. The staff we met were absolutely lovely and incredibly helpful. My... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighborhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighborhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
