Well after trawling the hotel sites for accommodation and finding everything booked up we came across the Lyncliff Hotel. Price was £90 per night and the location was reasonably central (about 15 minute walk to the Waverly Bridge). Although the hosts were very friendly the rooms left a lot to be desired ! Infact we think our room must have been a converted corridoor !! The furniture was very dated with chipped and scuffed drawers and wardrobes from the 1930's ! And the surrounding areas are very noisy at night. Cleanliness was adequate although we did not use the shared shower room (think this was a converted cupboard) The toilet wasn't overly clean and the glass door to it just had a net curtain over it so we tended to use public loo's instead (which incidently are spotless all over edinburgh). Every inch of every wall had a picture or ornament on it and this was very oppressive. The one good thing was the breakfast which although described as 'Full Scottish' was really a full english as there was no scottish elememt to it at all ! BUT it was filling and plentiful. Overall You would only stay here if every other accommodation was full and only for one night.
