A real class act!!, if you have a visit to Edinburgh in mind, stay here!!. Many thanks for a great stay to Maggie & Kate. (A special thanks to Kate for reminding us that breakfast was about to finish and not start, as we mistakenly thought)☺

I booked this guest house for a week whilst visiting Edinburgh. It is immaculate in décor, cleanliness and warmth of hospitality from Maggie and Kate. Helpful with directions, modes of travel, places to see etc. Bus services that quickly whisk visitors into the City pass the door. The breakfast is delightfully served from a wide range of choices and sets... More

Highfield Guest house is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. Beautifully restored home. Katie made us feel very welcome. She was so helpful and considerate. She ordered taxis for us and made dinner reservations for us. We had to leave very early on our last morning. She prepared bag lunches for us to take when we left because... More

We stayed in the Hotel Ashburn on Saturday 7th Aug for 1 night and I can honestly say it is the best B & B I have ever stayed in. I booked 2 rooms, I double & 1 twin and both were of excellent standard. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very well presented, even down to the finer detail... More

Perfect hostess, quiet and clean room, home cooked breakfast ... a very enjoyable stay. From the guest house, you can walk to Arthur's seat and climb it to enjoy the scenery of Edinburgh and its neighborhood.

I had stayed briefly at the Highfield several years ago. On this occasion, I stayed for 6 nights and had a wonderful experience. Maggie & Kate are delightful hostesses who run a first class B&B. For me, the real test of any accommodation is "will I stay here again?". In this case, the answer is an emphatic YES. Thank you... More

I chose the Highfield Guest House based on the terrific reviews here on this site, and boy, was it right. The interiors are gorgeous. It is super clean. The beds are spacious and super comfortable. Breakfast is delicious, I can recommend the Scottish breakfast with haggis. The staff is super nice, and extremely helpful. One day we had to leave... More

The Highfield was as good as on our previous stays. Beautifully clean and well furnished, the rooms have all you need.The view of Arthur's seat from room 1 is a treat. We will certainly be back even though our son has finished university. Thanks again.

My cousin and I absolutely adored this warm, charming, delightful guest house. The sisters who own it are incredibly kind and hospitable: they helped us think through our itinerary, made great restaurant recommendations and helped us research venues for live music, explained the (very easy) bus system to get into the city centre, and made us absolutely delicious breakfasts every...
