My daughter and I arrived to Edinburgh on bicycles. The hosts provided us a secure location for our bikes at night and all of our belongings while we toured the next day. They were helpful in directing us on the bus routes etc. Our room was clean and comfortable and a good value. We would stay there again.

Stayed at Garfield Guest House with my cousin, Jon, for 4 nights in July (we were in Room #1 which is on the first floor and did not mind the stair noise which was above us - hardly noticeable). The hosts Martin & Michelle and their staff are incredibly hospitable. They even did our laundry for us! Our beds were... More

We went up for the Edinburgh Marathon weekend. The B&B was lovely; clean, tidy and close to all facilities. There's a couple of bus stops within metres for the door and its only a 30 min pleasant walk in to the city. The owners, Michelle & Martin were friendly, welcoming and helpful. It was a perfect spot and we'll definitely... More

A group of us who were running in the Edinburgh Marathon stayed for four nights during May. I found the rooms to be clean & nicely appointed, comfortable with TV's etc. The en-suite bathrooms although small were nicely fitted out with decent showers & were again all very clean & fresh looking. The owners couldn't have been nicer & were... More

Great location for our visit to Heriot Rugby Club. Very welcoming and helpful. Room was spotless and quiet, breakfast fantastic. Ample free parking directly across the road with good bus links to all parts of the city. Highly recommended.
