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

Looking for a good B&B in Edinburgh, this it it. Close to public transport into Edinburgh. Good sized room with great bathroom. Breakfast was well done. Great pub just down the road, look it up "The Kilted Pig. Our host Keith was helpful with heaps of local knowledge. Off street parking so close to the city was a bonus.
