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

It is located in a quiet neighborhood with a fabulous view of Edinburgh castle and a bus stop just around the corner, making it accessible to virtually anywhere in Edinburgh. Our host Martin was extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it came to making travel plans for sites to see each... 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

I was amazed about the negative reviews, because we were really content and had no complaints. Yes, the towels were quite aged (but perfectly clean) and the shower was nothing fancy and modern (but did the job), still we were okay with that. The room was facing the backyard and therefore very quite. The rooms facing the front must deal... More

We stayed here in the end of June and used it as a base to explore Edinburgh. The family room we had was large and very nice for the three of us. The breakfasts was excellent and the coffee....very important for Americans in a Tea Culture area, was great! The Proprietor was very friendly , knowledgeable, and accommodating. We would... More

We have had a great holiday in Scotland. We booked rooms here so we could visit Edinburgh and the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The locatiion is fantastic, with very frequent and efficient bus service into the city centre. Great views of the castle from the front rooms. Michelle made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of local information.... More
