Phone call from Martin before arrival to make arrangements for me getting there. Single room very small but I wasnt there to sit in my room. Bus stop at front door or round corner for town. Night bus stops about 15 mins away. Shower room up the stairs from room 2 very creaky stairs but it is an old building.... More

What everyone else here has said and more. Martin and Michelle were the friendliest, most available and accommodating hosts out of three B&Bs I stayed at during my week long trip. The breakfasts were also by far the best! I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and am sharing my experience with anyone who will listen. Room 8 has a... More

Just had our annual trip to Edinburgh for the Fringe and loved staying again at Garfield. Martin and Michelle gave their usual warm and friendly welcome. Clean, simple rooms, delicious cooked breakfast (we recommend the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs), easy access and parking at any time. Well worth every penny!

Stayed at Garfield 2 nights over weekend with group 9 running friends. Michelle was exceptionally helpful, pricing and arranging transport on arrival to a road race in Kirkcaldy without a blink. Food excellent, rooms clean and bright. Would stay again without a doubt.

When arriving I had to pick the phone up on the right hand side of the door, once answered was told the code to enter the building, when inside an envelope with my name on and a card with our room number and code to enter the room. Great idea do not have to carry a key around with you.... More

Our room was very nice and super clean. The breakfasts were delicious and we had our choice of many selections. Michelle was our host and she couldn't have been more helpful. There was a bus stop right around the corner so we were able to get to the city center in a very short time. We highly recommend the Garfield... More

I and my adult daughter spent 10 days in this lovely guest house. The main characters of it are cleanliness and friendly atmosphere. It is very close to the central streets and to the Botanical Garden. Very quiet street. Michelle and Martin help in everything. You can feel yourself like an old friend. Thank you, Michelle! Thank you, Martin!

Stayed overnight in the Garfield at the beginning of the month and would highly recommend this establishment. The room was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. There were two large radiators in the bedroom so it was nice to be able to control the temperature especially on a chilly, damp night. The staff leave a menu at the main... More

We have stayed in this lovely little guest house several times now and each time have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Michelle is always keen to help us with directions and tips on our sightseeing, and a particular thank you goes to another member of staff who told us about a lovely walk along the Water of Leith and Union Canal...

The bed and breakfast is in a great place, just a 30 min walk from the centre of Edinburgh. Michelle was a great host and couldn't do enough to make it an enjoyable stay. Breakfast itself was served a little early for my taste as I had gone away for a relaxing stay, however the traditional cooked breakfast from Martin... More
