Stayed for one night, very basic accommodation but dog friendly. Very helpful lady, convenient for tour bus that stops right outside. Nice breakfast...Shower left a lot to be desired but hey Ho !!...it is cheap, basic and ideal for short stay.

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

After our first visit to Edinburgh there was no reason not to re visit the Garfield for our accommodation. Friendly, helpful and serving a delicious breakfast, we were more than happy to recommend this guest house to anyone wishing to visit Edinburgh. With views of Edinburgh castle from your bed, it's just a lovely way to wake up, even when... More

Arrived 9.30 and spoke to owner via an intercom who then let us into the house. Breakfast was ordered via a sheet left in the hallway for the following morning. The staff we met at breakfast on the first morning didn't introduce themselves or welcome us to the guest house. We didn't meet the owner Michelle until the second morning,... More
