5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We finished our Coast and Castles cycle trip here and spent two nights so that we could see the sights. The bikes were very secure in the back garden with a locked gate, the room was lovely and Kate could not have been more helpful. There were lots of good suggestions as to where to eat and visit and we were given useful info as to the best route to cycle to the station!
We would certainly visit again.

If you ever have a chance to go to Edinburgh, go. Like stop what you are doing and buy a ticket and go. :o) Before you go, make sure that you can stay at this B&B. Maggie, Gordon, and Kate were the most lovely people, the room was beautiful, immaculate, and just plain perfect. I can't say enough good things, truly.

Lovely 3 night stay at this guest house. Very clean rooms and lovely, plentiful breakfast. Both Maggie and Kate who are sisters run the place and are friendly helpful and informative. It is outside the main town but you can walk in about half an hour, or there are plenty of choices of buses for the £1.50 trip. Please note you do need the correct change for the buses!

Room Tip: Room no.1 overlooks Arthur's Seat

This was an absolutely gorgeous and charming BnB, with the friendliest hosts, delicious food and high quality furnishings in the room. They were elegant and respectable rooms that made you feel the value in the price. Only a half an hour walk or literally a 5 minute bus trip into the heart of Edinburgh, if I were to come back I wouldn't stay anywhere. Thankyou for our hospitality, and letting us stay in your truly beautiful home! ~ the Aussies!

Slightly away from the very busy part of town meant Highfield Guest House is in a great location - quiet at night yet easy to get into town. The rooms are warm, very well decorated, cleverly kitted out and extremely clean. The beds are new and quite firm so suited my bad back. The breakfasts are lovely but you had to make your choice the night before which you may not necessarily want in the morning. There is a good bus service from the airport as well as around the town. Kate had kindly emailed me these details prior to our visit. I would definitely recommend Highfield Guest House to anyone and should we visit Edinburgh again I would not hesitate to go back.

After a very warm welcome we had a very nice week end in this guest house. It is 25 min walk from town center in a nice residential area. The breakfast is really great and the rooms are lovely and include tea making cofee facilities. It is quite easy to park free of charge near the house even if no dedicated parking is there. It is really an address to recommand to visit Edinburgh. The price is not the cheapest but it is totally justified, it is so a very good deal to stay in this guest house.

Room Tip: first floor rooms are great !
