Reviewed July 5, 2010

was pleasantly surprised by the room - newly decorated and fabby bathroom BUT... the smell of new paint kept me awake!
The girl was very attentive and helpful and nothing was a bother.
Breakfast was just ok - sausages were disgusting and the mushrooms dried out as if they had been lying out. The tea - well i like it strong but this was stewed - i had to ask for hot water to water it down- think it was made early, put in an insulated jug where it just got stronger and stronger. But all in all a nice gueat house and would go again.

Nineof my family and friends stayed here on 19/06/2010 . What a fantastic welcome, we had from Gillian, her rooms are as high a standard as some 4* hotels, spotlessly clean. and decorated to a high standard, very modern.Excellent value considering it was only £25.00pp. The breakfast was superb and certainly kept as going on our long journey home, we even left our luggage at her suggestion , to let us explore before catching our train, will definately return. Why someone can write a review and say they didn't enjoy their stay is completely beyond me!!.

Forget any previous negitive reviews these people are completly wrong, My two friends and I arrived for a 3 day stay, on arrival we were met with a friendly greeting and a warm welcome, Our rooms were modern and clean with an excellent en suite bathroom, The food was excellent and was served promptly.

We were always given good advice on the local area on where to go for nights to eat out etc, I have stayed in many a B&B and Hotels which were much more expensive and this one ranks as the best value for money and one of the most friendy home from home experiences you will have anywhere, My name is Duncan Fraser I stayed here from 25th 26th & 27th May 2010 in room 5,

I recently booked a 3 day stay in3 star B&B in Dingwall. To my very pleasant surprise "Garfield House" was a cut above what I had expected or experienced in the past for a B&B establishment. The rooms were not only clean and presentable but of such calibre that I would have expected to have paid far more than the £25 B&B. The rooms were tastefully decorated to a high standard with coffee and tea making facilities, a lcd flat screen tv with built in DVD player. A ensuite shower and toilet beautifully tiled floor and wall. The landlady was very pleasant and cordial and the full breakfast definitely made us all full. When we landed here we landed lucky. I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to anyone.*****star

Garfield is a winderful B and B, very friendly and accommodating. Mrs O'Connor goes out of her way to welcome guests and there is a happy atmosphere where people mix and meet each other. If you want a clean room and nice people at reasonable rates, this is the place to come.

My boyfriend and I booked a double room at the Garfield Guest house. When we arrived we were informed that we had a twin room, I asked why it was a twin when we had booked a double and was told that she had given our room to a block booking of builders on Monday and this was better business!! I then asked why she hadn't called us on Monday to let us know so we could have looked for another room and she apologised and said we were welcome to go eleswhere, (this was 2pm in the afternoon) we were meeting friends at 3pm so obviously did not have time!! well after an extremely uncomfortable night, we headed down for breakfast where we were told we would be sharing our table with someone else! the only choice for breakfast was take it or leave it, although we did have a couple of choices for cereal but no menu or choice for cooked breakfast. She then proceeded to charge us £50 for our squidgy, lumpy and uncomfortable night!!!
