Absolutely wonderful stay! Room was comfortable, clean and tended to each day. The caretakers were friendly and thoughtful. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of options for fresh food that was made to order and served hot. The location is not in the heart of Edinburgh, but it is convenient to get to the Royal Mile and Holyrood Park by either... More

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
