We stayed in order to run in the Edinburgh half marathon which starts just down the road. The host was great and very flexible in terms of our needs and check out time. The rooms were clean and quirky. Breakfast was very nice for those not racing. A good choice for next year.

We stayed here with our 5 month old baby over the bank holiday when we went to a wedding. The hotel is well located and was easy to get to from the station. A travel cot was provided for us (free of charge). There are about 10 steps up to the hotel from the street, so we had to carry...

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...

I couldn't believe the prices of some of the hotels in Edinburgh, and B&B's seemed to be booked out across the city, but I had the fortune of getting a room in the Lyncliff. Although a bit pricey, the location is absolutely perfect - 5 minute walk from Princes St, the Royal Mile, the castle. I can't speak highly enough...

The room was quite expensive considering the size, and there's no en-suite, but we quickly settled in as the hosts were so friendly and obliging. Location is within walking distance of loads of Edinburgh's best, and breakfast was great. I just don't understand why places advertise WIFI when it's not accessible. It's one of the first things I look for...

I had to visit Edinburgh at very short notice and was shocked at the prices being asked by the hotels where I would normally have stayed. As it was a late arrival I just went for a cheaper option close by the location I had to be in the morning. I arrived and was shown my ground floor room by...

Great location near the station. Up here to see the rugby and looking for good value for money accommodation. The Lyncliff is a friendly B&B. The rooms were basic but clean and tidy and very warm. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Shared bathroom facilities may not be to everyones taste but suited us fine. Great value for...

Booked a family room for my wife, our adult daughter and myself for the night of our son's wedding. Greg was extremely helpful when booking, no problem making the room available at 12 noon so we could change ready for a taxi to the wedding venue at 1pm.

The B&B is set in a great location, not too far from Waverley station, or the town centre. The owner is very friendly and catered to all of our needs. We were staying in Edinburgh to run the half marathon, as such he asked upon arrival what we would like for breakfast, and specifically what time. Due to us running...

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.

“My room - number two - did have a squeaky floor, but it had a good wifi connection the whole time I was there. It was a little noisy, being beside the road. It had one double and one single bed, and it was on the ground floor - meaning less stairs to get to the breakfast area.”
