Good free parking. Good bus services into Edinburgh City centre. Good breakfast. Being off the main road it was very quiet. Being beside Newhaven harbour and the Firth of Forth it was pleasant outside.

Had 2 rooms booked for 1 night - quite close to Edinburgh Waverley station (10 GBP for a 1 way journey by taxi). Rooms were very basic - in fact the bath tub looked old & tired. The exhaust made a loud noise - in 1 room the temperature control worked fine in the other it would not go above 23deg. I did not have the time to explore the surroundings since we landed at night but guess it was nice. The person at the reception had no smile on her face. I was asked to check in at a Kiosk - the first i have ever seen at the 10+ Premier Inns I've stayed at in the UK. Not sure if it reduced the check in time?
I was able to get the rooms at the base minimum price & hence it was vakue for money - would not have been the case otherwise!

Thank you floyd_g23 for reviewing your stay at Edinburgh Leith Waterfront Premier Inn. As a budget hotel chain our rooms focus on providing the basic requirements a guest may need when staying away from home. All our product and furnishings are, however, of an extremely high quality and standard. I apologise that the heating in one of your rooms was not working to your satisfaction. If you let me know your room numbers I will investigate the issues you mentioned. Our kiosks are a new check in facility, installed in new hotels or hotels that have recently been refurbished. Leith Waterfront was fully refurbished in 2012, with the new reception installed at the same time. If you are not happy using the kiosk please do let a member of the team know – they will be happy to check you in via conventional check in method. If you have pre-paid for your booking it can shorten the check in process, however, we do realise that this method is not for everyone. Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted you found the hotel good value for money and hope you enjoyed your visit to Edinburgh. Should you wish to contact me directly to discuss your feedback in more detail I can be reached on opsmgr.edinburghleith@premierinn.com. I would be happy to hear from you. Thank you again for your review.

Nothing different than every other Premier Inn. Good value, clean, comfortable & a great waterfront location. Reception staff provided excellent friendly service & really went out of their way to welcome us on arrival.

No facility to cool (just heat) the rooms meant a rather stuffy sleep.

Great wee hotel in a quiet spot (bar the seagulls) with easy access to roads/bus routes; Ocean Terminal shopping centre in walking distance. Simple parking and felt safe. Nice to hear the waves lapping even though in the city - peaceful location, great staff, spotless room - highly recommended and will use again

Typical Premier Inn. Room was clean, bed super comfy, great power shower. Nice and quiet. Had a problem at check in as company we used to book rooms had the card declined (not Premier Inn's fault)....but the 2 lads on reception were so friendly and helpful and did everything they could to resolve the issue.
Ate at Prezzo Restaurant a few minutes walk away overlooking harbour. Really nice food and good service.

This hotel is quiet, comfortable and well sited for tourist and visitors. We enjoyed the friendly staff.
The site near the River Forth is scenically stunning with a view of Fife and the river. A gem of an hotel.

Thank you Colin S for your lovely 5 star review of Edinburgh Leith Waterfront Premier Inn. The team are delighted you found our hotel very comfortable and great value for money. We think our beds are particularly comfortable and glad you thought so too! As you noted, we are conveniently located on the outskirts of the city, where it can be a bit quieter, but also still close enough to walk or catch local transport links into the city centre. The free car parking is an added bonus, and we are pleased you appreciated it. We look forward to welcoming you back to Premier Inn again soon.
