We stayed here in August 2016 and felt very lucky to find accommodations anywhere given that the Edinburgh Festival was happening, but Garfield House would be a great stay anytime. Charming and homey; good location about 20-30 minutes' walk from central attractions and right on bus line. Martin was a tremendous host, full of suggestions about where to go walking...

Great place to stay in Edinburgh, simply decorated but very cozy and everything you want from a guesthouse. Nice breakfast room and breakfast. Nice area with nice walk through the botanical gardens. Quiet and close to city center by bus (10-15 minutes).

Martin, Kirsten and Kate are the smilingest, friendliest and helpfuliest of hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. This is our second 2-3 week stay, and we have loved it both times. It's clean and efficient and soooooo easy to get to town from, with bus stops very close by. (One is outside the front door). You can walk in to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Garfield Guest House. The management was very welcoming and helped us with any questions we had. Breakfast was delicious and the location is great. There is a bus stop outside the guest house with regular buses into the centre which takes around 15 minutes. The only thing which could have been better was the...
