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

Bill is a great host and I had a very comfortable week at the spotlessly clean Garlands Guest House. Can't recommend this guest house highly enough. I was a bit short of time in the morning as breakfast starts at 8am and I had to catch a bus at 8.35am. You can have a breakfast tray if you need to... More

Folks, Make sure if you're in Edinburgh, you book Garlands. A classy, period house, which is warm, cosy and spotlessly clean. Bill the host is a perfect gentleman, and the cooked breakfast is just perfect. Free parking outside the establishment is a great boon, and the city centre is a nice fifteen minute stroll away, albeit the area is well-served... More

We, two friends, stayed mid April in Garlands guest house. We truly enjoyed the stay. The accomodation is clean, nicely decorated, friendly and a large breakfast menu is available. We just had one minor point which was the reception of the wifi signal on the top floor. Reception was poor, but did work. Not a major issue as in the... More
