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.

8.2.Very Good.
  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel was central and convenient. The room was clean and comfortable. The toilet ran and when I mentioned this they said it would be fixed that day but it wasn’t. The stopper in the sink didn’t work so the sink didn’t hold water. The glass shower door on the bath tub wasn’t adequate so when I showered, the water went everywhere and I had to mop the floor with the floor mat. There was no table or desk in the room - just a silly little six-inch wide shelf - so there was nowhere to put anything. I had to ask for a water glass. When I asked for a box of Kleenex, I was told abruptly “We don’t do Kleenex. You’ll have to use toilet paper.”

    Customer service was amazing! They helped me book a one day tour through the Scottish Highlands. The condition of our room could have been better. The sink seemed like it was clogged.

    Location was ideal. Staff were very attentive and friendly. At an extra cost, we stayed at the hotel's house. It was grand, very spacious, however needing some upgrading and attention to details such as furniture and painting in two of the rooms in particular.

    A Disappointment

    When we checked in, we found our room was in the basement, and that the window was open to anyone wishing to break in. The room was quite small, and certainly was not what was advertised online. We decided to look elsewhere, and were told that we would have to forfeit the cost of two of the four nights of our reservation.

    We were upgraded to the 2 story 2 bedroom apartment and it was beautiful. Only downfall was there is no air conditioning and it was unusually hot for Scotland that day. They did provide us with a fan which helped.

    Room was clean and cute and a good size! Location is about 5-10 minutes away from the main strip which is a nice easy walk. Staff was very accommodating with early check in. The only trouble we had was we had preordered champagne to the room and it was not there. We told the desk and they still never brought it. Overall a great place for the price!

    Ok.

    We stayed for two nights and I woke up on the first morning covered in hives. I have never been allergic to anything in my life but something in they’re detergent did not agree with me. The room was ok otherwise. The tv was small and the shower has no door and you get water everywhere. They cleanliness of the room could definitely be improved as there was long black hair all over our floor that definitely was not ours ( both my husband and I have short hair).
