It's very nice little place, makes you feel like you are visiting the royal family back in centuries. It's very clean and comfortable. Hosts are very nice and cook local fresh breakfast every morning. Great location 20min walk from the old city.

First impressions lasted with our overnight stay at Garlands. Our hosts were most welcoming and offered valuable advice about city parking and where to get delicious vegetarian sausages. My cousins from Canada loved the ambience and the experience added to their whirlwind tour of the UK. More time should have been spent here and we wish we'd made the decision...

I had the most amazing stay at Garlands, and Bill was 'the hostest with the mostest'!! The full English breakfasts were delicious, and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Bill was most accommodating and made our mornings bright! I would most definitely stay again at Garlands!

Garlands Guest House is a very nice hotel, in a calm neighborhood near all the turistic atractions (20 min on foot). It has a great service and a wonderfull breakfast (you van have eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, toasts, cereals and a lot more...)!

We stayed in the Garlands for 10 days this month and were very, very happy that we had the opportunity. The owners, Bill and Ian, treated us as if we were guests in their home - not merely roomers in a bed and breakfast. Most refreshing! The house is a Georgian style built in 1820 and quite beautifully decorated. It...

What a lovely place! Stayed here 4 nights on my way to the Highlands. Beautiful room, quiet street, excellent cooked to order breakfast every morning. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and attractions. My room was spacious, meticulously clean and had strong wifi. Bill, the proprietor, is warm, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Excellent choice.

Bill and Ian are owners who clearly make every effort to ensure guests enjoy their stay at Garlands which is a very traditional and comfortable city guest house. Our room was spotless and breakfast beautifully cooked. We will definitely look to stay again on our next trip to Edinburgh.

I last visited 10 years ago and it's good to experience the same high standard of hospitality from Bill and Ian. Well appointed rooms and great breakfasts. 10 minutes walk into the city centre and on a bus route. The bus service is excellent - as is the app Lothian for the buses
