Leith Hall is well maintained and rooms are clean and tidy. Elan and Susan are gracious and welcoming hosts. Breakfasts are served on the front porch, hearty and delicious. Each day at 4PM, Elan takes pride in preparing scrumptious cakes and serving with ice tea and lemonade; along with engaging conversation. The days at the Leith Hall are relaxing and... More

A great find of a bread and breakfast! Start with welcoming smiles of Violet; followed by Susan and Elan who are the gracious and hospitable owners, who prepared varied scrumptious breakfast, delectable afternoon tea; comfortable, spacious, well appointed, individually themed rooms, topped by ocean views, with beach just a few steps away! Loved our stay and will recommend highly to... More

My research into this B&B paid off. I knew the owners brought a wealth of travel experience with them and were into history. Our owners were very gracious and friendly and so knowledgeable about so many things! This made for entertaining and informative conversation while enjoying the delicious breakfasts and afternoon cakes and cookies done by our host, Elan. Our... More

I loved staying at Leith Hall because I'm into history and having fun at the same time. This Victorian B&B haven was restored by preservationists; You can't get more accurate than that! I loved my old-fashioned canopy bed with the lovely quilt, the Victorian bureau with the authentic bowler hat hidden inside, and of course my terrific views of the... More

I stayed one night in this lovely, quaint B & B on a last minute getaway. Our room was the Celebrity room located on the third floor (no elevator though there are rooms on the first floor if that is a concern). The room is on the small side as it is a Victorian home but more makes up for... More

On our first trip to Cape May, we were surprised at the number of B&Bs to choose from, so we went primarily with location. We weren't disappointed as the Leith Hall is just a half block from the beach. The room was nice, although walking up 3 floors made us think twice before coming and going. The breakfast was great...

I lovely place to stay. Less than a block from the beach road and two to three blocks from the Washington Street Mall, Leith Hall is in a great location. We loved our room, our view, our breakfast, and sitting on the porch late at night enjoying the breeze. I am sure that tea was great as well, but we... More

Leith Hall is owned by Elan and Susan. They are most accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. We loved the location of this quaint Bed and Breakfast (easy walk to the lovely beach and shops). The food was outstanding, and Elan is an excellent cook (wonderful frittatas) and baker (homemade pastries at tea every day). They even made special gluten free items... More

The place was lovely but our room was super small and on the third floor. Owners were very nice and the house was the usual Cape May Victorian. I felt we got overcharged for such a small room on the third floor off season.

leithhall, Manager at Leith Hall Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

Thank you for your nice comments! It is good advice to ask what floor the room is on if you don't want to climb stairs - unfortunately Victorian houses don't have elevators! We're sorry you weren't pleased with the size of your room - we hope you'll consider coming back and trying a bigger room on the 2nd floor. To... More
