I really enjoyed staying at Highfield Guest house. The room was clean, nicely decorated and very quiet. The bed and bed linnen were of a very good quality. Breakfast was amazing! I would certainly stay there again! On a weaker side, the shower was a little slow and not powerful enough, but that certainly didn't spoil my stay.

An absolutely wonderful stay. Very comfortable, cosy twin room, with tip-top decor, and nice outlook onto garden. We were made to feel most welcome from the start and breakfast was a delight, loads of choice and delicious. Parking was easy round the corner in a quiet cul-de-sac and the bus stop into the city centre was a minute's walk away....

This guest house is truly amazing value. Gordon, Maggie and Kate work so hard to provide a relaxing and spotlessly clean stay. We will certainly recommend to everyone and also stay longer next time. Great room, breakfast, loads of bus information etc. 5stars !

Stood in this guest house for 9 days. Room was excellent, hospitality tray was a most welcomed extra, staff was friendly and hospitable and always helpful. The house is located in a calm neighborhood within walking distance of a number of pubs and restaurants. Will certainly be coming back

We first met Gordon when we arrived and we've never met such a lovely, genuine gentleman. We had a wonderful surprise in our room when we arrived for which my Mum, in particular, was very happy about as we are visiting Edinburgh for the first time and celebrating her birthday. The guesthouse and it's owners are wonderful, welcoming, homely and...

Really nice building and room, with great links in to the city (there's a choice of about 20 buses running all times of day which take 10 mins into city centre). The most important part of a B&B to me are the hosts, and they were fantastic, super friendly, helped us out when we needed a super late check in,...

Absolutely wonderful stay! Room was comfortable, clean and tended to each day. The caretakers were friendly and thoughtful. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of options for fresh food that was made to order and served hot. The location is not in the heart of Edinburgh, but it is convenient to get to the Royal Mile and Holyrood Park by either...
