Slumber by the sea at the Premier Inn Hotel Edinburgh Leith Waterfront. In a prime harbour location, you're still within easy reach of all the attractions of the historic city centre. And if you're here to work, we're close to key business destinations like the Scottish Parliament, too. Get regal with a visit to Royal Yacht Britannia or Holyrood Palace. Head for the city and storm the walls at Edinburgh Castle. Then indulge in some world-class retail therapy on Princes Street, or enjoy a relaxing stroll around the Royal Botanic Gardens. After a busy day, kick back and relax in our tasty restaurant, spacious rooms and extra-comfy beds.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great location, very quiet & friendly employees. Visiting Britannia (fabulous yacht) and stayed two nights. Both evenings very peaceful. Had dinner at La Castilla (excellent) then at in hotel Brewers Fayre (also excellent). Yaza on reception gave us Forth view rooms (much appreciated) and despite the hotel appearing full it was very quiet in the rooms. Thanks very much.

Chosen for its location near my family but could not fault it. Sea facing room on request was super, enjoyed a perfect sunset. Had everything I required. Quiet, clean, excellent value. Could not fault it for what I wanted.

Used as a base for couple of days trip to discover Edinburgh, Nice location overlooking the Firth of Forth, very close to the Tram Station allowing easy access to Edinburgh City Center. Found a great Cafe for breakfast called "The Haven" right next to the Newhaven Tram Station.

Premier Inn Leith Waterfront Newhaven Complaints 1. Not being told Wi-Fi in rooms is faulty/ only told reception had issues with Wi-Fi 2. House keeping mixing up the type of room that was booked/ was told when trying to do an early check in room number and member of staff wrote on a piece of paper room number and type for house keeping 3. Ridiculous noise that guests were making at night 02/02/2024 between 10:45pm and 11:00pm. When launched a formal complaint with reception we had been told it would be passed on to a manager and they said they would see what they could do for us (07:00am), went out for the day and when returned back to hotel at 12:45am we went down to the reception at 01:00pm to ask about the status of our complaint we had been told they knew nothing about it so had to explain it all over again 4. No water in the kettle on arrival Recommendations for improvement 1. Better decor in rooms i.e. nautical theme 2. Easily accessible HDMI ports 3. DVD players for in the rooms 4. Better WI-FI i.e. speak to Netomnia for better broadband 5. Safes in the bedrooms 6. Better tea and coffee making facilities i.e. include hot chocolate and diluting juice 7. Better wardrobe space

The room at best was ok, view of car park and usual premier inn room. The breakfast was appalling. Service poor. Lots of tables with dirty plates etc so struggled to find a table we could sit at. The food was poor quality and poorly cooked. Limited choice as most of items were empty or morsels left. We ate at 9am so not late. We left hungry and annoyed.

Location and view fantastic, plenty to see and do in the area (visitor attractions, local restaurants) planning to come back to see the sights we couldn’t see Lothian bus transport were excellent and so close to Edinburgh city centre. Service and selection of food and drinks to suit all, a good but quick trip.

Great hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. This one is next to the quay and close to the bus stops and city center. Rooms are en-suite, spacious, well-equipoed and clean. Beds are comfy. There is a restaurant next to it but very average food. So I recommend going to the city centre.

Tatty net curtain with hole in it didn't set this off for being a great review. Then bed lights had similar issue. Small things but when you add I'll fitting carpets throughout the hotel and in our room and to add insult to injury the lift wasn't working so we were pointed to a hurriedly organised accessable room.
