Traveliing by myself it was great to land in a comfortable place with a warm welcome! Maggie and Kate were very attentive hosts (without being at all intrusive) and their attention to little things was much appreciated. Knowledge of local attractions and getting around was really handy and they made sure that this was available straight away when its most... More

If you are looking for cleanliness, friendliness, a wonderful breakfast, attention to detail, pretty rooms, all at a great price, LOOK NO FURTHER. We spent 3 night at this wonderful B & B and enjoyed every minute of it. It is only 10 minutes by bus to city center. We 100% recommend it and would definitely stay here again in... More

I absolutely recommend this lovely Bed and Breakfast! Maggie, Kate and Gordon were so welcoming to us and helpful as we navigated our way around Edinburgh. The rooms were so clean and comfortable. They paid attention to every detail that makes a B and B so charming- from flowers on the tables, tea and cookies in our room to an... More

We stayed here for one night during June 2014. The B&B is very clean, has got a great standard of facilities and serves a good selection of good quality breakfasts. The property is modern but has retained many of its original features. It is on a bus route but is about 15-20 minutes from the city centre. The owner we... More

Our room No 5, though a little small was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and well provided for, and being at the back was totally quiet. Maggie and Kate are delightful and helpful and looked after us very well. Breakfast was exactly as requested, delicious, and came quickly. 'Dropping off' is a bit of a problem because of Highfield's position,... More

This guest house is very well run, the hosts were particularly helpful and personable. Plenty of things to like - breakfast was excellent, the room (#5) was clean and comfortable and despite being on a main road, our room at the rear was very quiet. However there were a few quibbles where I differ from the vast majority of other... More

This is our third time staying at Highfield and if/when we return they don't have a vacancy, I would seriously consider changing my travel dates! This stay was especially nice as the wonderful Maggie, Gordon and Kate totally pampered me. I was in town to run the 1/2 marathon and they not only let me help myself to the breakfast... More

I have just returned from the most fabulous weekend at the Highfield Guest House, it was my first visit to Edinburgh and I enjoyed every second. The rooms are immaculate, beautifully decorated and contain lots of additional luxuries you don’t normally expect from a guest house, breakfast was delicious and the location is great for getting into town however, one...

The best hosts, awesome breakfast and a good home to stay. Look no further, just close your eyes and book this guest house. That simple and good. Through tripadviser we found this guesthouse. Great value for money too.
