Rooms are small and cluttered. Extremely noisy window A/C. Breakfast was consistent…. Terrible every day. Miss leading advertising - rude host, limited onsite parking most guests were made to walk 4 -5 long blocks. Ocean view turned out to be a restaurant parking lot. Advertised to contain sink, refrigerator – not in our room.

This was our third stay at Leith Hall and we enjoyed Elan and Susan's hospitality and historically accurate furnishings and decorations as we had on our previous visits. They serve lovely breakfasts and tea time treats. We especially enjoyed visiting with our hosts and other guests, as Elan has a talent for chatting with everyone on their large wrap around... More

I found the Leith Hall B&B on Trivago which offered a discount of $49 off a regular night's stay. My wife and I spent a few days in OCMD, then took the Lewes-Cape May Ferry to Cape May. Upon arrival at 2PM, we were greeted by the B&B manager. She checked us in in no time and was very gracious... More

We booked this B&B last minute and were thankful to get a two bedroom suite as there were four of us traveling together. We had a late arrival, and the hosts were excellent in communicating what to expect. We booked the Audubon suite and it was very charming. Loved the high ceilings in the main room. There was only one... More

We spent the night at Leith Hall. While we have been to Cape May many times, this was are first visit here. Elan is a wonderful host and shares many interesting facts about his and Susan's travels in Europe. Afternoon tea was tasty -especially the Key Lime Cheesecake. Would definitely recommend Leith Hall.

The location (a block from the ocean and two blocks from town centre), the ocean view (from our third floor bedroom AND bathroom!), the delicious homemade breakfasts, the hosts (friendly and attentive but not "in your face"), the housekeeper cleaned the room while we were at breakfast (her timing was perfect!),the authenticity of the B&B Victorian style.

I have to say, Elan and Susan, the owners were very nice and helpful, especially with directions. We got a cold response with rudeness with a staff member VIOLET!

What a wonderful experience. This was our first time in a B&B in Cape May and it set the tone for what I hope was only my first stay at Leith Hall.
