Good value and location.
This is a charming family run B&B where the hosts are really helpful and accommodating. We had an early am flight and they were happy to give us breakfast earlier than the scheduled time and arrange for a taxi for us too. It’s an old property in a great location with good restaurants, public transportation and the sights of Edinburgh at a walkable distance. The shared bathrooms can be a bit of a deterrent but no other drawbacks at all.

Greg was very kind during check in. Gave me the run down of the BNB and gave me some local tips on where to eat. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe at Lyncliff. The front doors would close and be locked at 11 and open back up around 8 or so. There was also a key to enter the building as well as your room. All in all, I would stay here again.

Shared bathrooms, not for me.
I must confess, when I first booked this hotel I did not realise that the bathroom/toilets would be shared with other guests. This is a big no-no for me, at this stage in my life! And especially when both shower rooms were so small that I could barely lift my arms, and one of them had a dodgy door which wouldn't close properly. Is it still a hotel if it has shared bathrooms, isn't that a hostel? However, the hotel is in a good area, right across the road from Calton Hill, and a 10min walk to the city centre, 30mins by bus or taxi to the airport. The room was ok, a long strip with two beds opposite each other, and because it was in a residential area and there were other gardens behind us, there was some noise from barbecues one evening. We only stayed for 3 days during Easter, which was bearable, but I wouldn't go back.
