This is an absolute gem. Everything is clean, well maintained, and charming. We happened to be the only people in the b&b during our stay, so we had the house to ourselves. The individually prepared breakfasts were delicious. They even gave us a togo breakfast on the morning we were leaving for the airport! Overall, a great place to stay!... More

The Highfield Guest House is an ideal place to stay. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes by bus into the city centre and Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park are within walking distance. The room was rather comfortable and the bathroom had everything one needs. The water pressure in the shower was excellent. They cook a very good breakfast and... More

I was a guest for a week at the Highfield Guest House, and immensely enjoyed my stay. A home away from home, where Gordon and Maggie both anticipated and attended to my every need. The breakfast was delicious, the room immaculate and comfortable. Wifi in the room was fast and dependable. I was visiting a collaborator at the nearby University... More

A really lovely guest house. Maggie and Gordon were friendly and helpful; the room was warm, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. If we come back to Edinburgh we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.

I've stayed there for one night. Very clean, comfortable and nice place. Not far from town centre. 10 min by bus and about 30min walk. I've bean nicely surprised by Vegetarian Breakfast option! Excellent! I would recommend this place to everyone, I will definitely come back.
