Ok, if you want a clean hotel with breakfast that is reasonably central in the high season, come here. It is not all that bad, but it is certainly not perfect. I guess it depends on how you look at it. cons: Squeaky floors, Tiny showers (just a cupboard) No elevator - so you have to drag your luggage up... More

Well, what can I say?! I stayed here in March 2014 for one night as I was up with my sister,brother in law and niece,visiting family after a bereavement and it was the worst night of our lives. I booked a room for 3 adults and a child and was given a room which wasn't fit for adults to stay... More

We are accustomed to staying in highly rated bed and breakfasts. We needed lodging for one night in this location. We couldn't get into anything else at the time that we were booking, so we stayed here. We had to share a toilet which was fine with us, but we would prefer not to do this. The shower stalls were...

We stayed in order to run in the Edinburgh half marathon which starts just down the road. The host was great and very flexible in terms of our needs and check out time. The rooms were clean and quirky. Breakfast was very nice for those not racing. A good choice for next year.

We stayed here with our 5 month old baby over the bank holiday when we went to a wedding. The hotel is well located and was easy to get to from the station. A travel cot was provided for us (free of charge). There are about 10 steps up to the hotel from the street, so we had to carry... More

Visited Edinburgh with my parent's who are both in thier 80's, so had to get a central location. The Lyncliff is just down the road from the St James Shopping Centre so was ideal. The room,s are small and old furniture but bed,s were comfy and clean. Coffee, tea and shortbread in room,s., colour t.v. Sink in room with constant... More

Well after trawling the hotel sites for accommodation and finding everything booked up we came across the Lyncliff Hotel. Price was £90 per night and the location was reasonably central (about 15 minute walk to the Waverly Bridge). Although the hosts were very friendly the rooms left a lot to be desired ! Infact we think our room must have... More

I couldn't believe the prices of some of the hotels in Edinburgh, and B&B's seemed to be booked out across the city, but I had the fortune of getting a room in the Lyncliff. Although a bit pricey, the location is absolutely perfect - 5 minute walk from Princes St, the Royal Mile, the castle. I can't speak highly enough... More

The room was quite expensive considering the size, and there's no en-suite, but we quickly settled in as the hosts were so friendly and obliging. Location is within walking distance of loads of Edinburgh's best, and breakfast was great. I just don't understand why places advertise WIFI when it's not accessible. It's one of the first things I look for... More

I had to visit Edinburgh at very short notice and was shocked at the prices being asked by the hotels where I would normally have stayed. As it was a late arrival I just went for a cheaper option close by the location I had to be in the morning. I arrived and was shown my ground floor room by... More
