“A short but sweet stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Stayed here for two nights, brilliant hotel, just nicely refurbished, the room was modern, spacious and clean, the staff at reception were very helpful and always gave us a friendly greeting when we walked past. The 2 for £10 meal deal at the Brewer's Fayre next door was also a bargain, despite the fact that me, being stupid, sat down with my girlfriend for about 5 minutes before realising you had to order at the bar, haha :)
Only problem was that we had to move to Haymarket after the second night as there was some scheduled maintenance on this hotel, but we were well informed of this a week beforehand and transferred smoothly, closer to Edinburgh Waverley which actually helped us, all's well that ends well! Also, if you're not in a car, this hotel can be a bit out of the way for some, but we managed fine with the buses. :)
This is an example of a Premier Inn that nails it everytime and I'd love to return here again, hopefully we'll be able to stay longer next time! :D

This hotel is lovely indeed. Very clean and a friendly welcome on arrival. The room was lovely indeed. Nice and large, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Attached to a brewers fayre pub where you can have a drink and food.

We have been using this hotel regularly over the past 8 months. Its situation is stunning, with wonderful views, it's very clean, and the staff are helpful. The breakfast is excellent and dinner is tasty with good service. But recently we have run into a problem; the rooms are not warm.

The first time we encountered this was after a 9pm checkin. The room was cold and simply did not warm up before bed time. We complained about this in the morning and were given a refund. We have stayed at the hotel since then and encountered exactly the same problem. The reason appears to be that the heating only works when the key card is inserted in a slot at the door. No keycard, no heat. So at a 9pm checkin the room has had no heat on at all since morning. The heating seems to be switched off completely in the late evening. The checkin staff don't explain any of this. We like the hotel, so have not complained again, and solve the problem by taking a small fan heater with us.

Apart from this, the hotel is excellent and good value - except during the Scottish Open, when the price shoots up to just under £190.

My wife and I with our 2 kids aged 5 and 3 stayed at the Premier Inn Edinburgh Leith Waterfront for 2 Nights over the weekend, this was the first time we stayed here and we thought it was excellent. We had a family room which had a double bed and 2 x single beds, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable. The use of the restaurant attached was excellent, food was great with plenty on offer. Just across the road there is Prezo (pizza pasta) restaurant and a fresh fish restaurant. Highly recommend staying here.

We enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable nights stay at the Edinburgh leith waterfront premier inn. This hotel is superbly well located for Edinburgh city centre (with ample free parking!) and enjoys lovely waterfront views. the room was extremely comfortable and quiet, the staff warm, friendly and helpful... you just cannot go wrong with a stay here. Well done yet again premier inn...hard to beat at these prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a waterfront view.

Stayed overnight at hotel on a recent trip to theatre. Car parking facilities make this hotel very attractive, only 10mins away from theatre and centre of city. Excellent value for money and advantage of having Brewere Fayre attached.

Efficient check in, friendly staff, comfortable room. Had a good nights sleep, great shower in morning. Breakfast hot and tasty. Good value stay.
Close to ocean terminal which has good range of shops , pure spa, vue cinema and excellent restaurants overlooking the water. Cheaper than staying in city center which is only a short bus journey away. Would recommend
