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

I stayed here for a couple of nights in August and was very impressed. My single room wasn't ensuite but I had my own private bathroom, with key, just along the corridor. The bedroom was furnished simply, with single bed, small armchair, wardrobe and desk and wasn't huge but certainly spacious enough for a single traveller. The high ceilings made... More

Staff/owners are really kind and thoughtful. We felt very welcome. Breakfast is delicious and the room very comfortable. A very nice surprise for a special occasion also. It's warm, it's like a home away from home. Will be back someday for sure. Thank you!

We spent two nights at the Highfield for our first trip to Edinburgh. Maggie and Gordon were very welcoming and happy to give directions and advice on where to visit. Even if you are brand new to Edinburgh, they can point you the right way in terms of transport, activities, dinner options, etc. Breakfast is very good and generous--you may... More

Met Maggie & Gordon next day, hugs all round. My sisters and I shared the family room this time and it was very comfortable and well... More

We just spent 2 nights here and we weren't disappointed. The room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. We received a warm friendly welcome and were given lots of information regarding busses, places worth visiting etc. Their Scottish breakfast is a must, it's fresh, hot and very well organised. We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend... More
