Really good place, more hotel like I think than the usual B+B standard especially in decor. Friendly helpful service, quiet street, good parking. Very comfortable bed and great linen, amazing shower. Decent continental breakfast offered. I stayed in Room 2.

I was disappointed when i got my room, the room looks nothing like what the pics on the website show. The room has old fashioned deco and smells of damp. The room had cobwebs everywhere and the carpet was dirty. The housekeeping was very poor, as they did not change bed covers and clean the bathroom. I do not recommend... More

LEITH HOUSE. Stayed her 2 nights. First impressions were that it had no Character or Street Appeal at all, nor any real indication that it was a Bed and Breakfast/ accommodation provider. Once inside the room although quite small was clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was so small, I wondered how bigger people would manage. We are both... More

Ideally located. Just enough to save you the unreasonably high prices in Edinburgh. The Royal Mile is just a 30 mins walk fro the hotel. We chose not to opt for the breakfast. The rooms were small but very clean. A very economical hotel.

One thing what I didn't like that the price is not included the breakfast,it was extra £5,and you got cereal,bakery and slices of cold... More

I didn't read reviews but made a last-minute booking based on price and position (it is a bit of a step from the city centre, but close to a main road with umpteen bus services and actually not too arduous a walk to the centre in fine weather). The road concerned is quiet, by the way (almost a cul-de-sac). The... More

Booked through Booking.com. Photos can be deceiving! Thought continental breakfast was included, but wanted £5/person extra. Rooms small, old furniture and dark. Very thin walls and could hear the pipes for the water and flushing toilets from every room! Was clean but felt rather rough! Location good but a bit of a walk to town centre, not a problem for...
