I stayed here on a business trip mid-week. I was generally happy with my stay - the customer service was very good, staff being very polite and helpful. The room was quite small but for my purposes was absolutely fine - the bed was very comfortable and the shower nice and powerful. Breakfast was nicely cooked. My only reservation was... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Inverleith Hotel and it was great. Located just enough off the beaten track to be affordable but close enough on foot or any of the 3 buses which run past its doors to be a convenient location. There is a Tesco around the corner (our room had a kitchen) and there are plenty of... More

We have stayed in this hotel three times now. The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly and the rooms spotlessly clean and comfortable, despite being on the small side. The breakfasts are delicious and there's more of whatever you want. The hotel manager is particularly pleasant and helpful and a mine of information regarding what's going on locally. It's... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at this hotel during the Edinburgh Festival. We probably had the best room which was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. The service was good. Quiet. Efficient. One really valuable feature is its proximity to 3 bus routes with frequent buses which go straight to the Castle and main areas of interest.... More

I stayed in the twin-bedded room with my cousin. We felt it was expensive for what we got (though it was during the Edinburgh Fringe). Our room was tiny, one of the beds was under the eaves, and there was no wardrobe or chest of drawers, just a selection of 7 or 8 hangers attached to a strange contraption behind... More

Hi, Thank you for you feedback regarding your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that you felt your stay with us did not prove good value for money, though August in Edinburgh is the festival and therefore high season and compared to other small hotels and guest houses we are competitively priced. Similarly this means that breakfasts will be... More

Very friendly staff who made sure our stay was very pleasant. Excellent breakfast and the room was well appointed. Close to town which is one the bus route and about a 15 min walk. The hotel is also close to the Botanic Gardens.

We chose this hotel because of its price and inclusive of breakfast was far more competetively priced than more central hotels. It was quite a walk from the city centre but well serviced by public transport. It was ideally situated for the Botanical Gardens attraction and in the evening was very quiet. We were very disappointed by the room given,... More

stayed here for five nights with my partner and have no complaints. The decor is a little dated, but the hotel was clean, comfortable, and staffed with friendly people. The breakfast was good and offered enough choice to keep us happy for the five days. The hotel is located in a quiet area of Edinburgh about a 15 minute walk... More

Booked for one night, nice location near botanic gardens and 15-20 minute uphill walk to George street or princes street. Comfortable accommodation, if a little small, but clean and functional. Fine breakfast and no real complaints

Romantic one night stay in Edinburgh. Facilities excellent with great 4 poster. Lovely breakfast in the morning. Best of all for me however is the location - close enough to the centre but beautifully relaxing surroundings. (We went for a walk in the Botanic Gardens in the morning). Would be a great base for a few days exploring Edinburgh and... More
