Elan and Susan are wonderful hosts. We loved our room. Staying at Leith Hall made our anniversary special.This was our second time here,and we will definitely return soon. The Sloane's

We enjoyed talking with Elan and Susan about Cape May and their home is lovely! The breakfasts were wonderful as was the room we stayed in.


Authentic B & B

4.0 on May 06, 2014

This was our 2nd visit to Leith Hall. We loved that the room was on the 1st floor and that they were spotless. The bathroom was the only problem we had with the room as it was extremely small. We also liked that it was a half block from the ocean . Susan and Elan could not have been nicer and we learned so much about the area and the homes from both. The breakfasts were good and plentiful. I would recommend Leith Hall to anyone who would enjoy a very Victorian atmosphere.


affordable, great location, convivial hosts

We have stayed at a few other B&B's, and prefer their quiet quirkiness and intimacy over standard hotel/motel decor--and having to search out one's own breakfast in the morning! Leith Hall in particular offers quite the Victorian ambience (décor, afternoon tea) that Cape May is famous for, in addition to modern amenities. and an excellent location.


Leith Hall Was Delightful!

My husband and I love to stay in Bed & Breakfast Inns, and Leith Hall was the best. The innkeepers were very friendly, the accommodations and location could not have been any better, and the homemade breakfasts and tea treats were wonderful. Anne Taylor (in Virginia)


Leith Hall

5 on September 05, 2013

This is a wonderful B&B located 1/2 block from the beach. We have stayed here 6 times and always have a great time. Elan and Susan are wonderful hosts, gregarious and interesting. Elan knows pretty much everything there is to know about Cape May and Victorian culture and architecture and is fun to talk with. The Turkish Suite on the 2nd floor has a clear view of the ocean from the bed and one can also enjoy the view from the rocking chairs on the wrap around porch. Elan does the cooking so the Breakfast is always a delight and the tea time sweets are not to be missed. We had a Jacuzzi, a flat screen TV with full cable (though we seldom watched) and WiFi. 5 of the rooms come with parking in the rear - a must have for Cape May in the summer. We will be back again next year. Pete Wells


Weekend at Cape May

4.4 on July 03, 2013

our stay at Leith Hall exceeded my expectations. This was our first try at b&b and it couldn't have been better! The accomodations were fantastic! Elan and Susan were terrific hosts,the food was terrific, 2 blocks (if u could all it that) from the beach and you felt like you were home!The short walk to where we had to park wasn't a problem and all in all, I would love to return, our long weekend went by way too fast!

Quaint and Romantic

4.4 on May 22, 2013

This was our first experience with a B&B and it exceeded our expectations. We were greeted by Violet and instantly felt welcomed. Our room was cozy and romantic with a beautiful ocean view. Both Elan and Susan were pleasant and kind, the afternoon tea was amazing and breakfast was excellent. We will not only be returning to Leith Hall but highly recommend it anyone who is lucky enough to visit Cape May.


A stellar B&B

5 on April 03, 2013

Leith Hall is an absolutely wonderful B&B! The decor is fantastic, breakfast was superb, location excellent, but the best thing that Leith Hall has going for it is Susan and Elan. They are so friendly and so knowledgeable about almost everything and such a pleasure to chat with. Afternoon tea was a great hit with Elan's homemade goodies. My particular favorite were the chocolate-blackberry crumble bars. We were particularly fortunate that one of the other guests, marvelous pianist, played during tea.


Great location, friendly innkeepers.

4.8 on January 02, 2013

This is a wonderful and reasonably priced B&B to stay at. We stay in Cape May for several days every year right after Christmas. Both Susan and Elan were easy to talk to and very gracious hosts. Can't say enough about both the breakfasts as well as the Tea time goodies. Although my wife and I stay in different B&B's every year, we are considering coming back to the Leith Hall again. The location is terrific for strolls to the beach or to the Washington Street Mall.
