“Fab short break...”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

Having already stayed in the Premier Inn Southwark I was not disappointed with Premier Inn Leith. We received a friendly welcome. The room was very clean and freshly decorated. As we were travelling with children the big, good quality TV was used during our time in the room. Breakfast for the 4 of us (the children eating free) was great value and with it being help yourself buffet we were not hungry til very late on in the day, thus saving money on buying lunches. The choice of breakfast was fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend it. Some might think £8.25 is pricey but when 4 of us ate all we could eat breakfast, for £16.50 inlc tea/coffee etc I dont think you could beat it...you might get a 4 or 5 item breakfast cheaper but it will not fill you the same as this. I had a 3 course (cereal, hot breakfast then fruit and yog) each day and know that a 4 or 5 item breakfast elsewhere would not have kept me full for as long as the Premier Inn's buffet. This Premier Inn is situated near Ocean Terminal shopping centre and Royal Yacht Britannia. There is a No 10 bus which runs every 10mins into Edinburgh centre. We bought day passes (£3.50 adult; £2 child) but single and return tickets can also be purchased if not using buses within Edinburgh. The bus stop is just outside the hotel so very safe for anyone travelling alone. I have already booked another stay for us in September as we didnt get to see the Pandas at the zoo. There is free parking available which is not the case for every hotel in Edinburgh. We had a sea view and the location of this Premier Inn is next to a small harbour with lighthouse, quite pretty. Would highly recommend this Premier Inn.

Room Tip: Sea views are available.

Great location, close to the britannia and Botanical Gardens. There is a 24hr Asda near by plus the Ocean terminal shopping centre which has a good selection of restaurants. The staff where very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Free parking, breakfast was good. The hotel was on the harbour is at the back of the hotel, which we had a lovely walk along in the evening and watched a wonderful sunset. There is a bus stop outside, with a bus that goes to the city centre.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view when booking

Easy access above all very friendly staff! We had asked the staff for some information and about the city etc, she was very helpful and also, provided some printed instructions to what to visit and how to get there.

Room Tip: No lifts, so travel light

After staying at Premier Inn, Edinburgh [Leith] which was recommended by our English friends, we chose to stay in Premier Inns whenever they were available, throughout our 4 week tour of U.K. Very good value for money. Always ask for a fan in your room, even when it's cold, as the rooms are short on fresh air and get quite stuffy. We found this in all Premier Inns as the security windows can't be opened enough
