Leith House Hotel
The stay was fine, Finding the location as there is no sign was a little more tricky, Shame they do not offer breakfast, I would stay there again.
James, gbOther trip
Poor 2.0
Horrific weekend experience
Horrific hotel - door didn't lock, bed was small and uncomfortable and management were unhelpful. We ended up going and paying to stay at another hotel at extra cost due to the low quality of this hotel. NOT RECOMMENDED

Exceptional 10.0
Very comfortable and staff were very accommodating. Good shower too.
Clare, gb2 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Nor awful but not good
Room was clean and tidy but very dated and creepy. We had the front room by the door and the windows were only tinted to around chest height, meaning we had to keep the curtains shut at all times so people outside couldn't see straight in to us. The lighting in the room was very dim and yellow. We knew it was further out from Edinburgh City centre but it was definitely further than we expected, and the '20' minute walk is more of a 40/45 min walk. The bed wasn't comfy and the duvet wasn't warm - there was also no option to not have someone make the bed (we don't like people being around our things and usually leave out a do not disturb sign when we visit other hotels). We had booked for 2 nights but ended up booking onto an earlier train home so we only had to stay 1 night.

Very good 8.0
Very pleased.
Everything we needed from a hotel. Was able to park the car just. Easy access to local buses.
