Premier Inn Edinburgh Leith Waterfront Hotel
Ranked #43 of 150 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Standard Premier Inn proposition on outskirts of Edinburgh.
Bus stop outside hotel drops you directly on Princes Street.
Loch Fyne restaurant 200 meters walk is a better proposition for breakfast (weekends only)/dinner than the adjacent Brewers Fayre.
Very good value for money given the location.

Room Tip: Ask for a waterfront room

Thank you for the 5 star review Incubator62! The bus stop at the top of the car park is very convenient for access into town and we are lucky to be in such a wonderful location. The team and I are delighted to know we were very good value for money, and exceeded expectations! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay with us.

Great location helpful staff family friendly! A great place to stay with family or even friends. The food is great here and breakfasts are ace as well. There is also a big asda near the hotel which comes in handy for bits and bobs. The staff are also very helpful and cheery

excellent well appointed Premier Inn. Liked their electronic check-in. Hotel is set in the rebuilt Leith docks area with an excellent view up the Forth with bridges in the distance. With fantastic public transport links to the centre of Edinburgh. Great value for money.

Like all Premier Inns the one in Leith is not glamorous but it is efficient, great value (especially during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival) and convenient. The Leith hotel is in a great location right on the waterfront and our room had a view of the Firth of Forth, the Forth Bridge and the lighthouse. Short distance from the Royal Yacht Britannia, walks along the waterfront and near some good restaurants. The staff were very helpful and our visit went very well - at a time when hotel rooms in and around Edinburgh were stupidly expensive and hard to find.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the sea/Firth of Forth

Booked 3 weeks in advance so got a good price. Comfortable room but would have appreciated a few toiletries as there was just the liquid soap in a dispenser.
Healthy breakfast option could have been cheaper - it was the same price as the "all you can eat" option

Dear Jean,

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with Trip Advisor and us.
At Premier Inn our brand standard is to provide Imperial Leather shower gel and Carex hand soaps in our bathrooms. This is what you had with us, and for consistency is provided in every Premier Inn bathroom. I will pass your comments onto our Brand Standards team for them to review.

We do have different price options for our Premier Breakfast. I am sorry that these were not explained clearly to you and will re-address this with the team to ensure they are explaining our breakfast offerings to our guests clearly and concisely.

I am glad that you found our rooms comfortable and good value for money.

Having stayed in a number of hotels in Edinburgh and being sorely disappointed - Premier Inn in Leith was a revelation. The Inn was immaculately clean and the staff at reception were polite courteous and very helpful. The bus stop is just across from the premier Inn, and whether it be shopping or eating out its a great location. At only £40 for a double room - Brilliant pricing, comfortable bed - what more could you want. Did exactly as it said on the tin!
