Old fashioned charm - Rating 4/5

Affordable, clean and comfortable accommodation. We enjoyed the spacious top floor room accessed by a beautiful spiral staircase. Good selection for breakfast and very good coffee. Within easy walking distance, on the flat, to eating places for an evening meal and nice to be over the road from a large park.

Basic but immaculate, clean and comfortable - Rating 4/5

This hotel is ideal for one or two nights for a traveller. The rooms are quite small, but immaculately clean, beautiful white sheets and towels. Good supply of tea / coffee / milk. Good range of continental breakfast. Only drawback was a tiny washbasin that was only of use to wash your hands, but this was outweighed by the friendly staff and price.

Good for a nights sleep - Rating 3/5

The room was very compact with little space for luggage. However what was lacking in space or facilities was made up by a very clean room and comfortable bed. The continental breakfast was not expansive but what was provided was good value for mone.y

Amazing stay at the Merith House Hotel - Rating 4/5

We had two amazing days and nights at the Merith House Hotel. The bathroom and the bedroom have everything you need. The beds are very comfortable and it is quiet in the night so that it is easy to sleep. The view from the hotel (onto a park) was amazing and it is easy to get there by bus no. 25. The continental breakfast was delicious and, even during the day, black tea was provided in the bedroom. Most important:the staff is very friendly and helpful!It was a pleasure to stay at Merith House Hotel!

night in the burgh - Rating 5/5

I was travelling to Edinburgh for one night with a friend and was just looking for a basic reasonably priced hotel not too far from the city centre.I found this hotel just by chance and I'm very glad we did the hotel was spotless and the staff very friendly.I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough and will definitely be booking again if I'm ever in Edinburgh for the night again.

Loved it! - Rating 4/5

We were greeted by the very friendly staff as soon as we arrived which was excellent. Very nice location, with shops and takeways nearby. Our room was lovely, nice and clean. It was quite a small room, but we didn't have much luggage so it didn't bother us. Breakfast was really early, finished at about 8;30am I believe, so we missed that as we didn't get up in time. Other than that, we had a great stay and would come again.

2-star hotel 5-star management - Rating 5/5

Having tried most of the rooms in the last week (they keep shifting me a about in my search for the cheapest rates) I can report that this is the best bargain in Edinburgh.From £19 for a very comfortable ensuite - but beware football weekends when the rates can treble.I love the Merith and the lovely management.The second B in B and B is also tops, with excellent tea and toast with optional eggs and bacon etc. for a few £ extra.

room for 3 adults a little 'small with suitcases, however, cleanliness and friendliness of the staff were not lacking. far from the center but served by bus, in front of leith links. not entirely economic, but edinburgh is not much better

Good Alternative for a stay in Edinburgh - Rating 4/5

The hotel is clean, with nice people, a good ratio quality/price during the festival.Buses are just right on the street leaving the hotel, and at a few hundred meters after midnight.

Nice Stay- Rating 4/5

We had a great long weekend in Edinbourgh during the festivals. The Merith is a great place about 10 min by buss (3.50 punds for a day pass) or by taxi (10 pounds one way) that is priceworthy. I would come back to do some more shopping. We also liked the staff as they were helpfull and kind.

POLSKA - Rating 4/5

Obsługa miła sympatyczna i pomocna, pokoje schludne i czyste. Jedyny minus to bardzo małe pokoje... jednak na weekendowy pobyt wystarczający. Godne polecenia i swojej ceny. z hotelu łatwo dojechać do centrum i zabytków oraz na lotnisko.P.S.autobusy 25, 12 spod hotelu do centrum, a 35 zza rogu (koło tesko) na i z lotniska.

A Fantastic Hotel - Rating 5/5

I am extremely happy spending my moments with Merith House Hotel. I did not at all think that I would get so much cordiality as I received. Roberts and Sandra were simply awesome. I wish both of them a happy and prosperous life. I am really thankful to both of them for the sweet memories of my stay in Edinburgh. If I ever get a chance to come to this city, I would always prefer to be with them. Thanks Roberts and Sandra for your warmth. Thank you again.


We would like to thank you for your kind words, we enjoyed having you here at the Merith House and wish you all the best in the future...hopefully we will see you again in EdinburghRobert and Sandra
