The house is very clean. The location is very good, which is near by the bus station to go to the city center. The bed in the room is very comfortable. There is a cute dog in the house. I extremely recommend people to live here.

Lyn's place was perfect for us. The room was very comfortable, with a nice garden view and the most amazing bed. The bathroom was just next to the room with a great shower. Lyn was very helpful and easygoing. Location was perfect to climb Arthur's seat.

Road numbers in the U.K. Run from 1 ,3,5 etc or 2,4,6 etc so you have to be on the correct side of the road to find the property!

We stayed at Lyn's for two nights only but it was enough to know it was a good choice. Finding the place was easy and is only 20/25 minutes walk from the main station. The room was clean, very nice, and the beds very comfortable with nice pillows and duvet; very convenient to have our own bathroom too. Lyn was super nice, especially since we forgot the keys home on the second day and she had to let us in again. Finally Barney, the Border Collie puppy, was just adorable. Would definitely recommend to others.

I had a great stayin Lyn's place. Room is very comfortable, bathroom as well, and the house perfectly located for my needs. I wish I could had more time to chat with Lyn, but I was out most of the day. I recommend Lyn's place, and definitely I would stay again in her place!

We have a ground floor flat in the heart of Edinburgh, on excellent bus routes. Direct links to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and the City. Lots of good restarants close by.
We have a spare room that we feel would benefit travelers, or folk on business, who don't want to stay in a hotel. This is a short term let and not suitable for long lets.This offer is a room only. However if you wan to come in December or March look at the available dates for the entire apartment.
The room is a comfortable double, with your own shower room and WC.
We have a mad collie so you would have to like dogs.He is very friendly and loves all our new guests.
I have been hosting for the past 5 years and love meeting new people. Im always on hand to offer any advice you may need to enhance your trip and in the room there is a lot of information for your stay here in our beautiful city. I have spare umbrellas for the rainy days. So you wont get wet. There is a selection of books about the city past and present on hand in the room.
