Checked in , via a very dreary dining room. Our room on the ground floor was decorated in mainly brown colours, with an en-suite ,which took up a large part of the space in the room. No drawers,mirror, and uncomfortable bed.Sheets and towels clean.No lock on bathroom door.

Sorry to say we were very disappointed at this accomodation, shoebox room with double bed, drab, tired layout poorly screened window, curtain had to be shut for any privacy! Shower disgusting!!! Sheets did look clean, but couldn't bring ourselves to stay. Lasted 20 minutes, yes it's cheap but quality very poor.

We stayed in the basement room (no.6 I think) for 2 nights. Clean room with a clean en-suite washroom. Bed was made by house-keeping everyday. Free parking outside. Strong wifi for 2 days for 3pounds. Great value for money and great location overall! Very very satisfied! :D

Plus - Good bed Good shower Cheap Minus- Staunch smell Noise could be heard from other rooms Out of shine. Rooms looks old and dark. Definitely... More

Just back from three nights at Leith House. Basic room but comfortable and cosy. Twenty minute walk from Princes Street but plenty choice of restaurants, pubs etc. Would certainly return. Quiet street and no bother getting parked.

I'm writing this review from my room in Leith House on my third stay. I've needed the accommodation for work trips and it has been perfect for me. A warm welcome, clean and comfortable rooms with a nice traditional/modern style, modern bathrooms with powerful showers and all very warm and cozy. A good continental breakfast is an additional cost along... More

Booked this last minute and was so glad I did! So much nicer than other places I've stayed in Edinburgh, the room was very clean, a decent size for the price with a comfy bed, decent tv but the jewel in the crown was the bathroom! Nice big bath, the best shower I've ever taken (I'm 6ft 4 and am... More

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
