We've just returned from our second visit to the Lindsay Guest House and can't wait to visit again in August. We discovered the Lindsay last year when we visited Edinburgh for the Tattoo. While a little bit out of the city centre it is still within walking distance (about half an hour) but there is an excellent bus service right from the end of the driveway. The longest we had to wait for a bus was 10 minutes so it is very convenient. Our room this visit was on the front (previously was a room at the back). We were a little worried about the noise from the road but the secondary double glazing took care of that and, combined with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, ensured a good night's sleep. The room itself was vast and the bathroom was immaculate. It's the little touches that help and the daily supply of sweets along with fresh biscuits and tea and coffee are a very nice thought. Breakfast was superb and set us up for the day exploring the city. Would recommend to anyone.
