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

We stayed at Garlands Guest House during Easter Holidays for three days. We were given the room at the top floor. The room was clean and comfy. The two owners, Bill and Ian, were very helpful and polite, provided with maps and information about the city. The full english breakfast was a good way to start your day but generally... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Garlands Guest House. It is only a short walk (max 15 min) to the main Shopping Street. Many good Pubs and Restaurants are in that area too. Bill's breakfast was very delicious. Bill even reminded us about the time change which was happening that night, to make sure we are not going to be... More

The owner, Bill, was so friendly and really made you feel at home. Breakfast was lovely, more than I could eat, and when we needed to be up and out early on Sunday, he was happy to bring breakfast forward for us. The house is absolutely gorgeous, amazing staircase and beautiful breakfast room with curved wall. Great use of colour... More
