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.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Massively overprized and not very welcoming
I was extremely disappointed with this place. Calling it a hotel is a stretch, it seemed more like what you would expect from a cheap hostel. The toilet and shower was shared with all the other guests, and the shower was stuffed in a tiny closet. The whole thing seemed claustrophobic and a little dirty, with sticky surfaces and furniture that you would not want to touch or put your clothes in. The room I stayed in was long and narrow, and obviously a larger room that had been split in two to fit more people on the premises. The whole thing smelled of wanting to make money and I found this place to be massively overprized compared to what I got. The owner was polite but very defensive and kind of Scrooge like with money. When we arrived the door was locked and we misunderstood a sign that led us to the basement of the premises. This was just an innocent misunderstanding, but the owner immediately let us know that is was our own fault as we could have just rung the bell. Which of course was true, but didn't feel like a nice way to be received. I would never stay at this place again and I would not recommend it to anyone else.

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.
