Things that made our stay great - dark curtains during midsummer, getting our laundry done overnight so we were able to set off with fresh clothes and not have to waste time at a launderette, a clean comfortable bed, close to transport (bus stop nearby), local pubs and restaurants (Orchard Bar was our favorite) and a nice walking/biking trail (Goldenacre...

Just on the outside of the city but with buses sipping literally outside, this is a good place as a base for exploring the city. Nice size rooms well appointed, and an excellent choice at breakfast times.... Would try and stay again when in the area.

Stayed at the Garfield Guesthouse recently during vacation in Scotland. Unfortunately, there was an issue with our room being on the 3rd floor and I was traveling with my mother who has some mobility problems. This issue was no fault of the owners of the guesthouse and rather a glich with the booking system i used. Despite not being at... More

Excellent location with city tour bus stop just outside. 5 minute journey into city centre. Safe parking opposite hotel. Martin is a very welcoming and helpful host. Very good breakfast with plenty of choice. Clean and tidy. Highly recommended.

So much is positive about staying at Garfield House. Good location. Clean. The room we had at the back of the house was quiet. Excellent breakfast. The manager is friendly, and the staff members we met are delightful. Couldn't do enough to help us. However, it was a bit too 'basic' for us seniors. We could feel the contours of... More

This is my 3rd stay at the Garfield guest house and it has never disappointed in terms of location, cleanliness and friendliness. It is a little outside the city centre but it is walkable, or there are plenty of excellent bus routes nearby (including a bus stop on the door step!) that get you into town within 20 minutes. On...

My partner and I travelled up for the Edinburgh marathon. Garfield Guest House was just on the outskirts of Edinburgh, which was lovely, as it was quiet but had free parking and had regular buses into town. Martin the owner was very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us, which made us feel at home. The Guest House... More

I regularly stay at the Garfield Guest House when visiting Edinburgh, as it is conveniently situated for buses into the city centre as well as being handy for the Botanic Gardens. There are so many positives here that I will chose just a couple: the very comfortable spacious rooms, and the breakfasts. The smoked salmon that accompanied the scrambled eggs... More
