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

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
