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

Great location near the station. Up here to see the rugby and looking for good value for money accommodation. The Lyncliff is a friendly B&B. The rooms were basic but clean and tidy and very warm. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Shared bathroom facilities may not be to everyones taste but suited us fine. Great value for... More

Booked a family room for my wife, our adult daughter and myself for the night of our son's wedding. Greg was extremely helpful when booking, no problem making the room available at 12 noon so we could change ready for a taxi to the wedding venue at 1pm. Well aware that room was not ensuite; on arrival found room clean... More

The B&B is set in a great location, not too far from Waverley station, or the town centre. The owner is very friendly and catered to all of our needs. We were staying in Edinburgh to run the half marathon, as such he asked upon arrival what we would like for breakfast, and specifically what time. Due to us running... More

I do not understand how can some place be allowed to keep the name of "Hotel" in Greta Britain. The standard on this island is abysmal ! This was not even at a par of a Hostel. Shared toilet, shared shower, cramped room, bed backing the large window letting the light through somne worn out venetian blinds. Strong yellow and... More

Good thing about the hotel is the location which is within 10 min from the Waverly Station. I stay in the hotel for 2 nights in May 2008. The hotel environment is like you're staying in the house with the bathroom and toilet outside. Room, toilet, bathroom are clean and in good condition. There is a basin inside the room... More
