We stayed at Pillars House during the last week of June 2013 and I can only highly recommend it to anyone who would like to visit or stay in Leith or Edinburgh. The rooms were comfy and clean and the Full Scottish breakfast, served at the common dining table by the host, hearty Edna and her friendly staff, is certainly ballast enough to keep you running around Edinburgh's attractions all day. Prices for 2 adults and 2 young kids were entirely reasonable considering just how expensive Edinburgh can get during the summer season.
There is more than enough parking out back and there is also a well appointed municipal park with a great kids play area a very short walk away.
I'd happily return there any time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pillars house was originally built and owned by Crawford which were offices and a spirit store in the late 18th century. Most of the building still has a lot of its character left as you can see as you walk in through the main entrance. The courtyard where our free parking is situated was traditionally used as the delivery entrance where the horse and carts brought the whiskey from the highlands to be blended. ... more less
