I have spent 2 nights at the Lindsay with my son and we loved the homely feel of this guesthouse. For us the location was perfect, near a tennis centre where my son had a tournament and close to the town centre( 10 minutes bus ride). Pamela and Keith are the perfect hosts: friendly and relaxed, always with a smile... More

Thank you for writing such an excellent review and providing future guests an idea of our location and breakfast. So sorry that we could not provide you with haggis during your 2 days but we do vary this most days just to give foreign guests in particular a taster of traditional Scottish foods. Maybe I just wanted pleasant gusts to... More

The room was lovely, mine host charming and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious with a fresh fruit salad each morning. Being able to leave our car, we could either walk into Edinburgh along the canal just at the back of the guest house or catch one of the frequent buses. Many thanks for a very comfortable stay!

It was lovely! When I arrived, I even got a bigger room than I booked. Everything was clean, breakfast was delicious (+fresh fruitsalad) and Keith's storys about Scotland were entertaining and the perfect start for the day. The area is very nice, quiet at night, but not too far from the city center.

Great experience in Edinburgh. The owners of the house were extremely attentious. The room was cozy and had a good selection of amenities (good tea, coffee, biscuits). We booked near new years so we got a shared bathroom, which was always clean, always heated, good shower. It's in a quiet region and kind of far from the town centre so... More

Stayed at Lindsay with some friends for 2 nights and had a lovely welcome, rooms clean and very comfortable. Breakfast really nice with plenty of variety. The hosts were great, very friendly and knowledgeable about local attractions, they couldn't have been more accommodating. A quality b&b!
