The Inverleith Hotel is the closest bed and breakfast guest house accommodation to the The Royal Botanical Garden (known to Edinburgh residents as "the Botanics"), so if you want to stay close to the centre of Edinburgh, and also like the idea of leisurely strolls amongst refreshing green lawns and rare shrubs and trees, this is the place to stay!

Adrienne and Stephen Case the owner managers will look after you from check-in through to departure. All 12 bedrooms have either shower or bathrooms en suite, with pumped hot water and powerful showers.

Although The Inverleith Hotel does not have a restaurant there is a room service menu for light snacks - at any time. And the hotel also has a small residents' bar and lounge (with a good selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks and many of Stephen's favourite Scottish malt whiskies). Close by the hotel there is an excellent variety of places to eat out catering for all tastes.
