This was our second visit to the Garfield Guest House & I suppose that says it all. You wouldn't come back if you weren't happy. A few minutes from the City Centre but there is a regular bus service from just around the corner & the City Sightseeing tour bus stops outside the door. The owners are very pleasant &... More

Easy access to city from this fresh, comfortable B & B. Michelle was very welcoming and happy to share information about getting around and places to see. I stayed on the top floor which was quiet and had wonderful water pressure. Breakfast was very filling and great mushrooms! I'd recommend this as a great base for your stay in Edinburgh.

Nice and clean room, easy to reach with the bus, staff very friendly and welcoming. Rich breakfast as well. We brought with us a small dog and we felt like home so if you want to go to Edinburgh with your dog this is the place to stay! Hope to come back soon!

My wife and I spent 6 nights at Garfield during Fringe and the Book Festival. What a great choice! Michelle, Monica and Martin will do every thing possible to make your stay a perfect one. Bus service is immediately accessible and runs every 8 minutes for a 5-10 minute ride to the city centre. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable... More

A great find on the net, very friendly and clean, have no complaints. Will certainly stay again. A reasonable walk onto the city centre but well worth it, there are very good bus transport into city and cheap. For a stay in Edinburgh I would highly recommend this B&B.

The host Martin and staff were very welcoming throughout with nothing to much trouble! The room was bright, inviting and spotlessly clean! Breakfast excellent! We shall hopefully return. Thanks again Alan and Sarah

We had a great stay here. People make the place. Easy to move around but not as noisy as city centre. Breakfasts are excellent and when we asked for a local laundry they offered to do it for us - FREE!!! This kind of detail , the free parking just outside and the so lovely Michelle make this an easy... More

We were down for the weekend to enjoy the city and were looking for something close to the center without the George St prices! The Garfield Guest House struck the perfect balance. The rooms were clean, the service is good and the owners are very friendly. Martin (the owner) was even kind enough to provide some excellent recommendations for good... More
