A huge thank you to Maggie, Kate & Gordon for making our stay truely memorable. From the moment we arrived it felt like home from home. The room was perfect, comfy bed and immaculate bathroom. The Scottish breakfast on offer is definitely one NOT to miss! The guest house is a 15-20 minute walk to the centre so great location... More

I've stayed at the Highfield twice, and both times I was sorry to leave! In November, I visited Edinburgh by myself to tour the university, and was nervous about staying on my own, but Maggie and Gordon made me feel quite at home. They gave me restaurant recommendations, bus routes, and maps. The room was gorgeous; clean and cozy with... More

I would like to firstly thank Maggie and her hubby for making us feel so welcome. It sure is a home away from home. The bedrooms, bathrooms and dinning area are spotless and it was an absolute pleasure using all the facilities. I would highly recommend the Highfield Guest House to any traveler. This B&B is a sure hidden gem... More

Having travelled a fair amount, one often has the misfortune of booking accommodation only to be disappointed or horrified in the difference from what is seen on the establishment’s website/brochure vs. what is… Albeit only for one night, we had a wonderful stay at Highfield. The rooms we spotlessly clean and well equipped, the service quite superb and the breakfast... More

I stayed here shortly after New Year for one night and found the warm welcome from the owners to be that of a long lost friend. I had been on a night out and my hangover was cured with an excellent full Scottish breakfast...as well as a couple of paracetamol's. The friendly atmosphere, clean rooms and excellent value for money... More

I was in Edinburgh to conduct research interviews and wanted somewhere quiet, comfortable and clean that was not too far from the city centre but also not too expensive. I found this B&B on TripAdvisor and emailed the owners, who promptly replied. My stay was very pleasant - the room was extremely clean, the amenities were just as described on... More

A very comfortable and spotlessly clean guest house, convenient for the University science area. I was in room 1, at the back of the house, where it was very quiet and with an inspiring view of Arthur's Seat. Delicious breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.
