Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris kath great hotel, beds need improvement
loved our stay in Leith, we have been to this hotel many times over the years and will continue to use it as a base when visiting Edinburgh.
One fault, the bed was soft and lumpy. Low cost rivals are upgrading their beds both in quality and in size. HIE need to keep up with the competition.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 convenient location, free parking, friendly reception staff, good value fo
We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and allowed to check in 2 hours early which was perfect as it enabled us to freshen up after the 3 hr journey before going to the booked lunch at the Kitchin retaurant just a few minutes around the corner. The room was very clean and comfortable and although compact, the addition of a sofa bed for seating in the room was a bonus. The shower room and toilet were very clean but we did not like the cramped triangular space which made it easy to knock against the bathroom furniture and get hands caught in the door.
The location is perfect for a city break as the very frequent buses stop just outside the hotel. Also the fact that the Ocean Terminus with its shops, cinema and entrance to the Royal Yaught Brittanica is just over the road, was excellent as we did not want to go to far afield on our first night after all the travelling. The lounge and breakfast room has, as you might expect, a slighly bland and corporate feel . but it is clean and comfortable. We booked in advance online and got a very good deal pricewise so could not fault this hotel for value for money . The friendly reception staff and flexibility of arrival, departure and free parking together with the good location for the city break were the main feature which would make us wish to return and recommend to others.
