Leith is a lively community and Ardmor House is in a peaceful part of it, though there is a great local pub for a quick pint if you so desire. There are lots of bars and restaurants just around the corner on Leith Walk which runs from the end of Princes Street, Edinburgh's main street, to Leith docks and the waterfront - a thriving community in itself. Buses and taxis are readily available no matter which way you want to go. Or of course you could do a 15/20 minute walk in either direction and get there on foot.
There are five rooms in all. All first floor rooms are large and have king size beds. Rooms 3 and 4 are at the back with garden views and Room 2 faces the front with a super kingsize bed, chaise longue and bay window. Large beds, statement headboards, light warm colours on the walls and space to move around. All with great power showers.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast only but it is lovely. Continental or cooked with good veggie choices. Robin is an enthusiastic host and will look after you.
The hotel has a deal whereby guests can use a Virgin Active Health club (10 minute walk) with great facilities from pool and gym to chill out treatments.
Informed, helpful, enthusiastic, personal, friendly – yes, I love them.
Who stays there
Men, women, children and dog lovers (as Lola is a star). Those who love a smaller friendlier vibe than offered by a large hotel.
Prices include breakfast otherwise it would just be called a B not a B&B.
