“mature couple - theatre break”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Excellent service, friendly staff who were very helpful . Room was in excellent order, clean, modern and excellent value for money. Ate dinner and breakfast in the adjoining restaurant where the staff and service was equally good. Will definitely consider staying in this premier inn again. Number 10 bus into the city centre stops just outside the hotel

Just back from a magic wknd in Edinburgh, stayed at the premier inn leith, as usual spotless clean and very efficient and helpful staff, only thing was location, we got the room for £68 for two nights , so bargain and more than worth it, however spent about £70 on taxis to town and back in 4 journeys.
So I would advise anyone looking at this to factor in for cost v the city centre hotels.
Even for staying around the leith area, it's a good 15min walk to the restaurants and bars, so great hotel, location though not so good

Thank you Kenny M for taking the time to review your stay with us. The team are disappointed to hear you did not find our location convenient for the city centre. Taxis into the city centre can be expensive, and the team are always happy to provide timetables for the local bus service. Our hotel is on the number 10 bus route that goes directly into the city centre every 10-15 minutes. This will take you into town for as little as £1.50 each way, and take approximately 20-30 minutes. It is an inexpensive method of travel that the majority of our guests find very convenient. We are delighted that you found our rooms spotlessly clean and the team were efficient and helpful. We are pleased you found the hotel great value for money and we look forward to welcoming you back to Premier Inn in the future.

Stayed here for two nights, brilliant hotel, just nicely refurbished, the room was modern, spacious and clean, the staff at reception were very helpful and always gave us a friendly greeting when we walked past. The 2 for £10 meal deal at the Brewer's Fayre next door was also a bargain, despite the fact that me, being stupid, sat down with my girlfriend for about 5 minutes before realising you had to order at the bar, haha :)
Only problem was that we had to move to Haymarket after the second night as there was some scheduled maintenance on this hotel, but we were well informed of this a week beforehand and transferred smoothly, closer to Edinburgh Waverley which actually helped us, all's well that ends well! Also, if you're not in a car, this hotel can be a bit out of the way for some, but we managed fine with the buses. :)
This is an example of a Premier Inn that nails it everytime and I'd love to return here again, hopefully we'll be able to stay longer next time! :D

We have been using this hotel regularly over the past 8 months. Its situation is stunning, with wonderful views, it's very clean, and the staff are helpful. The breakfast is excellent and dinner is tasty with good service. But recently we have run into a problem; the rooms are not warm.

The first time we encountered this was after a 9pm checkin. The room was cold and simply did not warm up before bed time. We complained about this in the morning and were given a refund. We have stayed at the hotel since then and encountered exactly the same problem. The reason appears to be that the heating only works when the key card is inserted in a slot at the door. No keycard, no heat. So at a 9pm checkin the room has had no heat on at all since morning. The heating seems to be switched off completely in the late evening. The checkin staff don't explain any of this. We like the hotel, so have not complained again, and solve the problem by taking a small fan heater with us.

Apart from this, the hotel is excellent and good value - except during the Scottish Open, when the price shoots up to just under £190.

My wife and I with our 2 kids aged 5 and 3 stayed at the Premier Inn Edinburgh Leith Waterfront for 2 Nights over the weekend, this was the first time we stayed here and we thought it was excellent. We had a family room which had a double bed and 2 x single beds, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable. The use of the restaurant attached was excellent, food was great with plenty on offer. Just across the road there is Prezo (pizza pasta) restaurant and a fresh fish restaurant. Highly recommend staying here.

We enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable nights stay at the Edinburgh leith waterfront premier inn. This hotel is superbly well located for Edinburgh city centre (with ample free parking!) and enjoys lovely waterfront views. the room was extremely comfortable and quiet, the staff warm, friendly and helpful... you just cannot go wrong with a stay here. Well done yet again premier inn...hard to beat at these prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a waterfront view.
