We have stayed at the Lindsay quite a few times as our son and his family live nearby. Our favourite room is no. 4, a double which overlooks the canal but we have also had no.3, the other double which faces the road but has a lovely bay window. We once had the twin on the ground floor when our... More

This is a lovely B&B - situated in a nice quiet residential area. The house itself is pleasantly decorated with lots of interesting wall art to admire. Breakfast is plentiful with particularly nice coffee, following this we enjoyed a nice easy, gentle thirty minute walk by the canal into Edinburgh city. The hosts are happy to recommend places to visit.... More

Delighted so many guests have reviewed recently. Thank you for taking the time to do this. With LBTA we may be around for a little longer yet. Who knows maybe another festival in us or you could always pop round for a coffee anyway, as we do not plan on leaving Edinburgh. Best wishes Keith More

We stayed here during The Fringe. Great location for buses into town and super breakfast, with a good choice. We stayed in room 3 which was lovely. Keith is a good host and always willing to advise on local attractions.

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...

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.
