Great place! Owners make you feel like you're home. We stayed for four nights. Breakfast is really good. Great location. Quite close to King's Buildings and some minutes bus travel to city centre. The place is really care by owners and in terms of price/quality it is a great option. Definitively if I visit edinburgh again I will stay there!

On arrival we were greeted by Maggie who gave us a map and guide of Edinburgh and then proceeded to annotate it with all of the places we wanted to visit so that... More

We stayed as 3 on the Saturday of Scotland v Ireland rugby international and as 2 on the Sunday as my son travelled south back to work. It's on a busy road and we had the front family room. However traffic seems light at night so it didn't bother us. Noise does bother me generally so it's a plus that... More

We stayed over a weekend after a last minute phone call. Everything was first class, from the welcome given to the time we left after being able to leave our bags for several hours after check-out time. The whole place was stylishly furbished, the bed comfortable, the breakfasts substantial and varied, and the hosts very welcoming. It was also extremely... More

Great location and hosts incredibly welcoming and helpful. An excellent place to stay when in Edinburgh. Room was lovely with a view of Arthur's seat. Breakfast was top notch. The property was very very clean and well looked after, pride in the appearance was clear to see.

Had problems finding a city center hotel that weekend so did some research on guest houses and B&Bs and came across Highfield Guest House on booking.com. It has very good reviews so I thought I should give it a try. I was not disappointed as the service from booking to breakfast and check out was excellent! We were given Room... More
