We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of the Fringe Festival. It was a lot cheaper than almost anywhere else in Edinburgh, so we had reservations but it turned out to be absolutely fine. The hotel is situated around Leith Links which is about 2.5 miles away from the centre. We walked in one day and it took... More

I have stay through my life in a lot of B & B. This was by far the worst I've come across. To call the room I booked a family room is a crime. The room is a good size with plenty of beds. That's not the problem. Its damp not ventilated at all. The window opens but you can’t... More

When we booked here, we thought it was overpriced but we thought we should be close to where we needed to return our rental car. Well Leith is not a good part of Edinburgh! The neighborhood is run down and seedy. We were told before booking that there was off street parking (the main reason we chose this place!) but... More

Average sized bathroom, with good shower. Very clean. Small shop within 100 meters on corner. Tesco was within 5 minute walk. Lots of restaurants along riverside approx.... More

This was a very small room but a high price, possibly because of the events taking place that weekend. It was very noisy with thin walls and noisy plumbing. The shower was very small and I struggled to get into it. The one member of staff I met was friendly and helpful. There was very little off street parking and... More

I would recommend this hotel for anyone hen, stag or friends group stay! Big spacious room where we could all stay together. Clean, tidy and comfy beds (although we didn't do much sleeping!!!!) Not far from the city centre which was great as we were on a hen weekend and wanted the nightlife. A save, secure hotel which was nice... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is far from centre of city, definitely not within walking distance. Even with public transport e.g. bus, you still have to walk for a distance to reach the hotel. It is quite noisy even though it is in residential area. Can still hear people talking outside the room/ window even in the middle... More

Booked in here for 2 nights with a girl-friend I had not seen for 2 years and we were looking forward to some r&r. Having been promised private parking there was none so, parking on the street we walked through the gate and a sea of overgrown weeds and litter that was the garden. Greeted by the owner/manager who was... More
