Conveniently located close to the Ocean Terminal shopping centre and restaurants. Also, more quaint selection of restaurant and shops nearby along Leith Water Walk. Staff super friendly. Everything clean and felt safe during COVID. Take-away breakfast a little sparse, but probably partly due to COVID.
