The guy (Martin?) is very friendly on the phone and in person. He also gave directions to some great local eateries. I didn't use them but was impressed to see numerous iron/ironing boards available for use in the lobby. The room was a nice bright room, nice and clean and well equipped with a flat screen. I don't normally eat breakfast but it was so cold outside I thought I needed the fuel. Glad I did - very nice cooked breakfast served almost instantly.

Would definitely come back to stay here next time i'm in Edinburgh.

Martin, the host made us feel very welcome. He was very helpful with advice on the local area. Good size room, very clean and nicely decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and especially the cooked breakfast.

Me and my wife went to garfield guest house from 28/09/2010 for 1 week. It was an excellent stay; room was ensuite with lcd tv, big enough for us. Breakfast was good and staff was very kindly! Only 10 minutes to go in the centre with 23 bus just near to guest house. Special thanks goes to the owner: Martin, which he was just fantastic! We will come back again! Highly recommended!!!

Martin and his staff have been more than helpful and our stays ( just booked for a third time later this year ) have been first class. Rooms have been excellent, breakfast requirements spot on and any queries regarding Edinburgh been easily resolved by the staff or free internet. If you have a front room, it can be a bit noisy from trafffic in the morning, but we come from a quiet country area so we probably noticed it a bit more.

Firstly when i booked a while ago even though it was the fringe festival Martin gave me a perfect rate and didin't bump up the price of the rooms because of festival time like everywhere else i tried.. Breakfast was locally produced and perfect - lots of it..
The girl who took your breakfast order was so so nice. As i was late arriving martin gave me the door combination and left keys in lobby so i didnt have to wait round,. got perfect view of castle from my room. my friends got luxury room at the back. We had 3 rooms in total and all of us loved the place. definately would come back . Free parking at front and back of guest house.
