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

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 the first paragraph of your review. You did not stay in our family en-suite room, you actually stayed in a double room that we provided a cot for. We were happy to receive you arriving later than our cut-off time and welcomed you into our home. At this point I saw you had a pram and offered... More

We stayed with Keith and Pam 4 nights. This is a wonderful place to stay when touring Edinburgh. Our hosts were very personable and knowledgeable. The breakfast was great with options! The room was spacious and well appointed. The car park is limited but Lindsay is on two main bus routes making getting around town easy (Edinburgh has a great... More

Very much enjoyed my stay. Keith and Pamela were very friendly hosts and my room and breakfasts were lovely. Stunning house in an elegant, quieter part of the city but still easy for getting around. Really good value.

Very comfortable and well appointed rooms and excellent breakfasts, and convenient for the city. Great pub nearby, The Kilted Pig and interesting walks along the canal. Also an easy walk to Murrayfield.

We stayed at the Lindsay Guest House for four nights. Overall, the experience was wonderful. Friendly host, spacious room, very clean, and delicious breakfasts. The guest house is located a walk away from the center of the city, and there are also bus stops right outside the house. For such a good price and an amazing experience, I definitely recommend...
