                  the room was spotless,very warm and cosy.the location is ideal for exploring edinburgh,very good value for money and you are not bothered by staff and can come and go as you please any time of the day or night.

                  Good location for the price, room was presented well. Has the feel of a B&B but you're left to yourself. Free parking on the street

                  Bed was very short!

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Location isn't right in the middle of edinburgh, so it's nice and quiet at night but its quite a trek into town if you don't like walking.

                  The area around the hotel reminded me of Camden in London, lots of little independent shops but with a run down look but was pleasant enough. Also you can hear everything everyone in the hotel is doing at all hours, my last night at leith house was very restless as the couple in the next room decided having sex for hours on end would be nice.

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  It is a tiny hotel but it is as perfect as a hotel in almost every aspect as the big ones, it was cleaned and maintained very well.

                  You have to pay for the internet. I do not think that it would be a big problem to get the hotel connected for free in such a big hotel, it is not bigger than my own house where i live.

                  Good value for money! The location is very good, close to bus stops that can take you to Edinburgh centre (if you drive, even closer to the centre), and there are many restaurants close to it. Size of the room was very good, good size of the bathroom, hot water and heater was working properly. Bed was comfortable too. Good for one night! Good value for money!

                  The only thing, there is no Wifi in the rooms.

                  Was not very clean and is quite expensive (60 pounds) for the location outside of the city centre.

                  It's a family-owned hotel and it felt as if we were staying at our firend's house. We could use not just our room, but also other facilities in the commonly accessible area (books, microwave, etc). I've ordered a room with just a shower (no bath tube) and that's exactly what I've got.

                  The room was located in the basement (but had a window/door facing the backyard, where the room was on the ground level. A single rather small window was causing "I miss the sun" feeling. Otherwise the room was great.

                  Locality would be about the best thing about it, and the hosts were very nice.

                  The noise when using the wash basin taps.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. For example, a) it was unusally hot during our stay so we requested a fan. As there was none available they went out and bought one for us. B) I was unable to pick up the wifi on my laptop for some reason, and was able to pick up my e- mails by using their laptop in the dining-room. C )They put my ice-packs and the fish we caught in their freezer until we needed them. We were lucky to be given a ground floor room when we stated we were registered disabled, and this was a good size, as other rooms are smaller and involve stairs. The room was very clean annd well appointed. Our bed linen was changed after 2 days of our 4 day stay. The continental breakfast was good value for £5, but I feel breakfast should be included in the price of the room, as the room cost is quite high and many Guest Houses in Leith included a full English breakfast with-in their price.

                  6.6

                  Welcoming,friendly staff,private,easy walking distance from center and public transport

                  Breakfast was in too small a room Not enough tables Should be organised better;Don't offer breakfast for more quests than tables!! No fresh coffee!!! Not good value for money. We did stay in Edinburgh festival time,mabe the prices were bumped up a bit....The main thing it was clean and private but not worth £109.- p.n.
