I would definitely recommend Lindsays Guest House to anybody visiting Edinburgh. I stayed this past weekend arriving on Friday afternoon after booking at short notice late Thursday night and was warmly greeted. The prices are very affordable and included a breakfast each morning. The hosts were more than helpful and were readily available to provide help if necessary. Parking is...

Well run Guest House with a great location just on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Easy 10 minute bus ride into city center from just outside and in a beautiful neighborhood with walking path on the canal which is overlooked by rooms at the back. Delicious breakfast and helpful hosts. Friendly pub down the street for food and drink.

So happy with our decision to book the Lindsay Guest House. Clean spacious room, friendly hosts, lovely cooked breakfast every day. Transport was great, bus route into the centre outside, short distance for taxis and you can walk it in 25 mins! Loved Edinburgh for New Year and would choose this guest house when I come back!

We booked the twin room with ensuite relatively last minute for three nights over new year and we couldn't have been luckier. Great price, super clean, lovely hosts, comfy beds, easy bus into the city (which you can also walk) and an amazing breakfast! What more could you ask for? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Pamela and Keith (the owners) made our stay so comfortable with their friendly and welcoming attitude. Beautiful place to stay and convenient for town with a bus stop right outside. The Number 10 and 27 bus will take you directly into town in literally 10mins. Breakfast was beautiful too. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would be back myself...
