This was a lovely surprise. More than a B & B but not like a proper hotel, there was a homely, friendly atmosphere. The room we had was at the back overlooking the car park and was quiet although the house is situated on two main roads. The breakfast room was lovely, very elegant and yet welcoming. Situation was perfect... More

Always a pleasure to stay at the A-Haven Townhouse Hotel - stayed for 5 nights this time. Wonderful food, clean rooms, comfy beds. Great value with a bus service every 10 minutes. Have stayed before and will stay again.

This hotel is a little outdated, but we would still stay again. Great value for the cost and easy access to the city center. The staff are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay, although breakfast service starting at 8:30am was not very convenient.

We stayed here for two nights and found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Our room was a little cramped, but had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The decor, although appropriate for a Victorian house, is somewhat tired and the skirting boards could definitely do with a good clean. There was also rather a stale... More

Ian A, Manager at A-Haven Townhouse Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your nice comments. Breakfast is served on a first come first served basis. We always cook food to the required temperature of 75 degrees. This must be done slowly otherwise the surface of the food would become overcooked. We would never take chances by serving food quickly just to meet customers time requests. This would be dangerous... More

We are just home for a weekendish (Sat - Mon) break. I had done some homework on decent places to stay in Edinburgh/Leith that were reasonably priced and was not disappointed. When we first arrived we walked through the stunning little garden, that was very fragrant and welcomed us to the Hotel. If only there had been seating there it... More

Well maintained Hotel with private parking. The guys were really welcoming and helped us with sorting out buses and directions. Advised us about eating out with excellent results (Fishers on old docks). Excellent breakfast with lots of choice, well cooked and served. Lots of little extras in room. We had a very small room in the roof but it was... More

Having looked on Google earth to pinpoint the location after I had booked did alarm me slightly as it is clearly on a bus route and a main road into Edinburgh. How wrong I was. The hotel is so peaceful and there was absolutely no traffic noise whatsoever. David and his staff are outstanding and all went above and beyond... More

We stayed for nearly a week, food was excellent and our host was very welcoming and helpful, its easy traveling in to the town by bus and plenty of them running. The room was ideal and very clean and comfortable. Would recommend here for a stay and if we came back up we would book in again
