Spent a couple of nights in Bill's Guest House while in town for a training course. Couldn't have asked for more - comfortable and well equipped room and shower room. Good selection of teas/coffees/nibbles etc. Breakfast was also excellent and cooked to order. Would thoroughly recommend! Street parking not a problem.

What a wonderful experience. We always try to stay in B&Bs because we enjoy meeting the hosts and getting their insights. Bill is just a delightful host with a great sense of humor. He added so much to the experience. And the room was superb as well.

Following a recent family visit to Edinburgh, we were in need of some extra space to host them, and, having heard some great things about Garlands, we reserved two double rooms. The family were not disappointed, Bill was a lovely and friendly host, catering to all their needs. The rooms were very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was exceptional... More

This was the perfect place for our stopover at Edinburgh. Easy accessible locality with loads of good restaurants, take away & pubs 5-10 mins walking. The place is spotless & bedroom en-suite bathroom was impeccable. A fully loaded breakfast option and we were lucky to get some black pudding as well while we were having a chat and just mentioned...

We had a great 3 night stay here for the Festival. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and Bill and Ian could not have been more welcoming and helpful.It is only 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, or £1.50 on the bus if you need transport. A real find, we are sure to return.

I was here with my husband last month as a part of our UK trip. This B&B is great for the following reasons: 1. It is very well located. Within 10-15 mins walking distance of the city centre. 2. Bill, the owner, is an excellent host. Funny, kind, informative and thoughtful. 3. Rooms are big, bathrooms are well-equipped and cleaning... More

Actually there is nothing to complain about at Garlands Guest House. The service and employees are great. The room was large, very clean, tidy and beautifully designed and furnitured. The breakfast was made by the owner himself and we never left the table hungry. We could get some advices for the city first hand and they helped us out where... More

We stayed for the Edinburgh Marathon, I chose the B&B for close location to the start line and the porridge reviews! We were not disappointed, Bill was a wonderful host and was welcoming from the start, the room was a good size and very clean. My parents joined us and they also really enjoyed the welcome and the accommodation. (The... More
