Great stay at a wonderful B&B. Really friendly hosts and great value for money. The location is a short bus ride into the centre of town and buses were every 10mins. Nay bother! I would definately stay there again and recommend to others. thanks

Has everything you need at a good price. Walkable into the city (although we got a bit lost on way back, phone satnav is a great thing). Would definitely recommend and stay again.
Sadly up for sale, hope new owners maintain standards, friendliness and local knowledge.

My son and I had the pleasure in staying with Pamela and Keith for two nights. We had a spacious room with top notch en-suite-facilities overlooking the garden. Don't miss Keith's breakfast. Fresh fruit salad every morning and the best orange juice my son ever had in the UK. They were very helpful on what to do while in Edinburgh. Take a leisurely stroll from their house along the canal to the city centre.

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.
Unfortunately my visit was cut short but if ever I find myself working in the area again I will definitely be calling to see if they have room for me!
I enjoyed the walks down the tow path of the canal but didn't get to see as much of the city as I would have liked. Local buses are very regular and good value, stopping very close to the Lindsay.

Room Tip: The only reason my sleep quality was not excellent was because I was working nights so sleeping duri...

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 was extremely large with a very comfortable bed. The ensuite was very modern, clean and included everything we required.

Breakfast was very nice and would highly recommend this guest house for the above reasons as well as it is on a bus route that takes you right into the city in just a few minutes.

We will definitely stay here again when we visit next year.

Many thanks for your warmth, humour and hospitality at a very reasonable cost. We felt right at home.
