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

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

I recently booked into Inverleith Hotel under the impression I had booked one night with Booking.com. I arrived in the afternoon and filled in the hotel registration and asked if I should pay now. The receptionist said I had already paid and gave me the key to my room. All seemed correct. Later I settled down to sleep at 10.30pm... More

This hotel was clean and friendly and reasonably priced, but had a few downsides. It is not disabled friendly as you have to climb stairs to front door and being an old building there is no lift inside. Our room was up two flights of stairs which were quite a climb. The room was comfortable and very clean if not... More

Enjoyed my stay here, great value and lovely room. Shower was a little small even for me but lots of hot water. Delicious breakfasts and very friendly staff. Would stay again. Perfect location next to The Botanic gardens. Very quiet and leafy.
