The Inverleith Hotel is a boutique, family run hotel, situated within an attractive C Listed, Victorian townhouse, arranged over lower ground, raised ground and two upper floors. Located on the south side of the street, close to its junction with Inverleith Row, 5 Inverleith Terrace forms part of a terrace of similar properties, some of which have been split into flats. The raised ground floor has a wide entrance hall, leading to the two principal public rooms, which include a stunning dining room and an interconnected bar and kitchen area to the rear. The well-proportioned rooms are flooded by light thanks to large sash windows, with the dining room benefitting from views across to the Royal Botanic Gardens. There are 10 well appointed ensuite bedrooms, the majority of which are doubles, spread across the lower ground, first and second floors. The rooms to the rear on the first and second floors have panoramic views across the city to Calton Hill and Edinburgh Castle. Internally the building has a wealth of period features including an elegant central stairwell, intricate cornicing, decorative ceiling roses, original doorways and period fireplaces. Two bedrooms at the rear of the lower ground floor provide access onto a south facing private garden. Included with the sale are two under-pavement cellars, providing ample storage space.


Inverleith Terrace is regarded as one of the most sought after residential locations in the city. For those who enjoy the great outdoors the property is ideally situated, overlooking The Royal Botanic Garden and only a couple of minutes walk from Inverleith Park. A wide selection of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and bars are available in Stockbridge and Comely Bank, whilst there are Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets close by. The city centre is a short walk away, providing access to many of Edinburgh’s most popular entertainment venues, including the National Portrait Gallery, Playhouse Theatre and Omni Cinema. In addition, there are several golf courses, tennis clubs and bowling greens nearby. Inverleith benefits from a wealth of exceptional schooling options with Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College and St. George’s School for Girls offering private education, whilst the state catchment includes Drummond Community High School and St Thomas of Aquin’s.
