Hello Martin, thank you for a great stay. Your breakfast was excellent and the room nice and warm and the internet nice and fast. Edinburgh is such a nice city. We very much hope to return. Thanks again.

I found this B & B from a list given to me by The Western General Hospital, when my wife had to undergo a bowel cancer operation. As it is only about 10 minutes from the hospital I thought it would be ideal. But little did I know JUST HOW IDEAL IT WOULD BE!! The owner, Martin, is the friendliest young man I've had the pleasure of meeting and Michelle, who assists in the running of the B & B is lovely too. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, the location is superb for getting in and out of Edinburgh and the breakfast really sets you up for the day! Having been on the road as a salesman for the past 40 years until my retirement last year, I can say that I've NEVER stayed in better accommodation!! So, I would recommend this fabulous B & B to anyone who appreciates the personal touch and quality in everything these guys do! FAB-U-LOUS!!!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 3 at the rear of the B & B. It's a very comfortable twin room and, although...

Had another great stay at Garfield. Cheered by the warm welcome, friendly atmosphere and excellent breakfast. My room was spotlessly clean with wonderful views over the Edinburgh skyline. Thank you Martin for your hospitality.

The two of us spent a couple of weeks at Garfield last month, visiting family and walking this fabulous city.
There's a lovely open feeling there - from the clear view of the Castle and Aurthur's Seat silhouetted against the dawn, to the friendly and helpful staff.
In the room -a great bed, hot shower and lots of tea!
For breakfast - delicious hot food cooked to order (including porridge, of course).
No wonder we walked everywhere afterwards.
Thanks Michelle and Martin - we'll see you next time we're in town.
Paul and Bernadette

Room Tip: Try a room at the back -still a good view, but away from Ferry Road traffic.

Close proximity to town, excellent value for money.

Fabulous breakfast.

Good sized rooms, nice and clean.

Good Host, 10 min walk to the Castle.

Reasonably priced, with very tasty cookies and tea in the rooms.
