Highly recommended without a second thought. This was my first visit to Edinburgh. Maggie and Kate made sure that their efforts were obviously noticeable by making everything seem so easy. From the moment I reached the city to the time I checked-out, everything was absolutely immaculate. They helped me with mapping out directions with the public transport, fixing pre-ordered breakfasts... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Highfield Guest House for our first weekend visit to Edinburgh together as we were in town for a wedding. I really couldn’t recommend this place anymore highly! The place has recently been refurbished and not only looks immaculate throughout but what really helps this place excel is the current owners (Maggie, Gordon and... More

My nephew had stayed here a year before and couldn't speak highly enough of the warm welcome and excellent accommodation. We were not disappointed. The rooms are decorated to the highest of standards and the furnishings and furniture are clearly chosen to create a very homely feel. To top it all the breakfasts are great and the porridge is the... More

A special mention to kate who took the time giving us specific details regarding buses and routes etc... the guest house was spotless, comfortable and cosy, breakfast was lovely. Overall a lovely guest house i would not... More

This place was the best place we stayed at on our 2 week tour of Scotland. Wanted somewhere quiet and not in the centre of Edinburgh. It was only a 15 minute walk to the centre, but also a good bus service as well. The room was well set out, and we had a really good bathroom. Also all the... More

I always look for clean and well maintained hotels or guest houses and was really happy to find one with absolutely no negative reviews. Maggie was very helpful in giving directions as my SmartPhone battery was dead to navigate and was using my Mother-in-law's basic phone that just makes calls :) As we entered I was impressed by the Great...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The breakfast was excellent. The room was absolutely spotlessly clean. I stayed in the single room which has a separate (but private) bathroom. This really was no problem. The free wireless internet was also very good. A short walk to the University (Kings Buildings) or a short bus trip up the road into town.... More

I visit Edinburgh regularly & have become disillusioned with the high price of hotel accommodation in the main tourist areas. So, having recently enjoyed a fabulous tour the Highlands, staying in consistently excellent guest houses sourced entirely on TripAdvisor, I thought Highfield Guest House would be exactly what I was looking for – and I'm very pleased to report that...

Absolutely fantastic guesthouse. Exceptionally comfortable, beautifully furnished, scrupulously clean and delicious breakfast. Very friendly without being intrusive. Lots of little additional extras such as complimentary toiletries, free wifi and tea & coffee facilities in room really set this above other B&Bs. Highly recommended.

For the slight inconvenience of being a very short bus ride from the city centre, Highfield offers excellent value for money. The owners were incredibly helpful, friendly and willing. They seemed like the kind of people who really enjoyed making sure you have a good stay. The house and rooms are absolutely spotless, comfortable and pleasant-looking. It seemed as though... More
