Profile: Leith

Profile: Leith

Leith, located at the mouth of the Water of Leith, is rich in history, with its original harbor dating back to the 14th century and famed for such august visitors as Mary Queen of Scots. Today, Leith is well known as the residence of the ultra-luxe Royal Yacht Britannia berthed alongside the modern Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre.

Bustling and vibrant, Leith is packed with delis, bars, chic cafés, and world-class restaurants. Local flavor abounds with festivals, galleries, cultural diversity, and an eclectic potpourri of peoples and cultures. A leisurely stroll along the mile-long Leith Walk is guaranteed to charm.

    Weekend Away

    Great hotel and staff very friendly. We had our dog and she also got a wee doggy bag gift. Excellent service will definitely stay again. Room was spacious and clean and very central for everything and bus stop just outside for city centre if you don't feel like rhe walk but easily done.

    Lovely stay at the Holiday inn. Very clean and rooms are very comfy. Food is nice and good location to visit Edinburgh. Parked on site for a small charge. Plenty of bus routes into the city centre and lots to do near by too.

    Hoots mon

    Good hotel for the price. Small rooms but all you want is a good shower and a decent bed when visiting. Well located for buses into Edinburgh or 10 minute walk to pubs/restaurants. Breakfast has good choice, cooked side of it has stereotypical rubber scrambled egg. Juices seem watered down and coffee machine could be a bit hit and miss. Lots of rubbish/skips in hotel car park so I presume there’s an upgrade going on somewhere in the hotel but didn’t see or hear anything. Overall, I would definitely come back here.

    Hotel needing some TLC

    carpeting in communal areas including corridors and stairs worn and marked.Room comfortable enough but could do with refurbishment.Bathroon could have been cleaner and needed refresh.Overall a room showing age and useage.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    No problems with hotel, staff great, rooms fine. Only issue is with the parking. If you don't get to the hotel incredibly early, it's all full up, meaning a bit of a pain to go park in the multi storey which after a long day of work is a little frustrating.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointed

    Initially thought the place was spotless until using the shower. There was mould in the corners and tiles. First night had a nice meal and all tables were cleared promptly. Second night I had macaroni. It was straight from the tin and not properly heated. Dirty dishes were on the table for more than an hour after the customer left. Having used this hotel before these are not standards I expect.
