Really enjoyed my first stay at Garfield Guest House which was the perfect location for a night in the city. As a regular runner I appreciated the nearby cycle paths that took me to Leith and beyond and gave me the appetite to enjoy the most amazing breakfast. Thank you Martin and Michelle!

We stayed four nights here while I had some treatment at the hospital. Martin and Michelle could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Lovely large room with views of the Edinburgh skyline including the castle. On the bus route for Princes street, also for the hospital. Breakfasts are amazing, locally sourced ingredients, served by Monika who is cheerful and... More

Located in a quiet upmarket area of Edinburgh with easy access to the city centre. Garfield Guest House provided a warm welcome, nice clean comfy rooms and a tasty breakfast ! A home from home that we would definitely return to.

I decided on the spur of the moment that I needed a short break to see friends in Edinburgh, and initially intended to stay in a hotel. However funds didn't match my ambitions, so with some trepidation I started researching B&B's and Guest Houses - I'm no longer much of a "people person" and was afraid there would be a... More

This guest house was clean, friendly and easy to get to from city centre Edinburgh. The 2 days we spent there were fantastic. Before posting this advert, i was surprised to read a few bad reviews. If you want to stay in 5 star for £100 - £200 per night go for it!! For the money this place was ideal.... More

I've actually stayed at the Garfield Guesthouse several times over the last few years and the development has been very impressive. Well located with respect to public transport and within walking distance of the city centre. Great staff, filling breakfasts and nice espresso! The rooms are quiet, comfortable and clean: everything you need!

I cannot fault our stay. Michelle was great with everything from checking and out. The room was clean warm and beautiful done out. Breakfast was lovely and there was plenty to eat. And there was rush to check out. Thank you Michelle for a wonderful stay

We stayed here with friends in mid-September. It took me ages to sort through all the possibilities and I chose it somewhat randomly. It was the perfect place. The lovely staff were charming and friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were wonderful. We stayed 4 days over the weekend, we walked all over the city, even walking to the core our... More

We stayed for a long weekend and Garfield was again an excellent choice. Clean with all amenities you need, great breakfast and a quiet, comfortable room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended. Even the weather was kind to us.

We were staying in Edinburgh for a few days and had pre-booked at the Garfield Guest House from Canada. I am glad we did. It was very reasonably priced, located in a quieter neighbourhood and we could walk or take the bus which we caught just around the corner. One morning we walked to the Botanic Gardens, a few blocks... More
