We stayed here 4 nights at the beginning of the festival, we were very lucky to get such a wonderful place to stay at short notice. Our room was very spacious and we were extremely comfortable. In the 4 days we stayed we felt very much at home. The location is perfect for getting into the centre of Edinburgh with... More

We stayed for 3 nights on recommendation of friends who stayed last year. The couple who run it are very helpful and keep the house immaculate. The canal walk into the city was an added bonus although the buses are frequent and the bus stop nearby. Would go again.

Great stay at a wonderful B&B. Really friendly hosts and great value for money. The location is a short bus ride into the centre of town and buses were every 10mins. Nay bother! I would definately stay there again and recommend to others. thanks

Has everything you need at a good price. Walkable into the city (although we got a bit lost on way back, phone satnav is a great thing). Would definitely recommend and stay again. Sadly up for sale, hope new owners maintain standards, friendliness and local knowledge.

My son and I had the pleasure in staying with Pamela and Keith for two nights. We had a spacious room with top notch en-suite-facilities overlooking the garden. Don't miss Keith's breakfast. Fresh fruit salad every morning and the best orange juice my son ever had in the UK. They were very helpful on what to do while in Edinburgh.... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Lindsay Guest house. Pamela and Keith are very friendly and helpful people. They know the city very well which is a big advantage. The accommodation is lovely, comfortable and clean. Breakfasts are very good. I would recommend this guest house.

The accommodations and hospitality of the owners exceeded all expectations. Close to the centre of the city with the feel of home. Breakfasts were tasty and generous. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I really enjoyed my stay with Keith and Pamela at the Lindsay. The house is stunning and the couple were ever so friendly and helpful. From the banter at the breakfast table to their knowledge of the City, they seem to know exactly the places that their guests would like to see. The standard of service and cleanliness is outstanding.... More

Stayed at this lovely welcoming guest house for 1 night. We didn't know the area at all and Keith was very knowledgeable not just about the local area but further afield which was very useful, including nice places to eat. My partner and I stayed in Room No 3 and it was absolutely lovely. Surrounded by beautiful furniture, the room... More

We stayed over the New Year period the house was really quiet and a haven around the madness of the celebrations on the city. Pamela and Keith were so accommodating and helpful, they couldn't have done enough to ensure our stay was pleasant. Keith even offered to lend us some change for the bus (Pamela had cleaned him out again!).... More
