Been to Edinburgh for the tattoo this weekend and had the most fantastic time. The guesthouse is only a 10 minute bus ride from the centre which was perfect for us. Pam and keith were great hosts with a great sense of humor. They were both very helpful in telling us about the area and what we would find useful.The... More

Excellent accommodation in a traditional guest house. Very large room overlooking the canal, with large en-suite shower room. Fantastic breakfasts with plenty of choice. Pam and Keith were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. A great help. A good bus service nearby takes 10-15 mins to centre of Edinburgh or take a pleasant half hour walk along the...

We were very happy to return to the Lindsay. It's a small, warm and friendly house. It's spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable and the rooms have a plentiful supply of fluffy towels and toiletries, tea and coffee, biscuits etc. The breakfasts are excellent and Keith and Pam are friendly and helpful. There's a very quick and frequent bus service... More

We just keep returning to this great place in a lovely quiet area, away from the bustle of the city but near enough to walk along the nearby canal or use the excellent bus service into the main city areas. We really appreciate the friendliness of Keith and Pam. Nothing is too much trouble for them and their knowledge of... More

A warm, friendly greeting with extremely helpful local knowledge provided that helped us make the most of our brief stay. A good location, easy to find from the bypass and only a short bus ride to the centre with the buses running regularly. We were allowed to park our motorbikes on the small paved area instead of the deep gravel... More

Stayed 3 nights. Good location, lovely room, comfortable beds, plenty of storage space. The guest house is immaculately clean and well decorated. The hosts Keith and Pam were welcoming, helpful and accommodating to any requests. Great breakfasts, and everything you need for a good stay. Though on the outskirts, there is an excellent bus service to the city centre and... More

Nice quiet location in Edinburgh. Buses run from the street outside and take you to the city centre in approximately 20 min. Lovely house. Very clean although a bit heavy on the bleach so be careful if you have allergies. Nice breakfast. We stayed here as a small family with an 8 month old boy for 4 days. We made... More

Thank you for reviewing so positively on our house and breakfast. We would seek to put forward our thoughts on the remainder of your review. 1. We do use bleach but it is not an allergen and just part of our daily cleaning. 2.You were in a double en-suite not our family en-suite and we did provide a cot. We... More
