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

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

The locatiion is fantastic, with very frequent and efficient bus service into the city centre. Great views of the castle from the front rooms.

Great view of city from outside the old town.. Panorama was great. Host were very accommodating, even left us breakfast even though we left for airport at 4:30AM!! The top rooms are on the third floor, so be prepared for trip up stairs.. No problem for us.

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
