I have been staying on and off at Garlands on trips to edinburgh for the past 11 years. It's been 2 years since I have stayed but have thoroughly enjoyed my stays. Bill is a very hospitable host. The place is well-maintained, rooms clean, well presented and you can tell a lot of care and love is put back into...

Having just returned from another very memorable trip to Garlands. Host Bill as caring and jolly as ever and the banter still the same after many a visit there, still has the time to talk and remembers everyone . Room 2 at top of house was as welcoming as it gets and the cosy feel of the room makes relaxation...

Picked the Garlands on the internet. You never know what you'll get,but this one was everything I didn't expect. Lovely comfortable clean rooms. Breakfast.... far too much ;-). You can skip the lunch later on! A very welcoming personal touch! Walking distance to the city centre... What do you want more ...

Bill personifies the good side of "Fawlty Towers". A charming host who does not shirk from a bit of banter. The guest house is well located,the rooms well equipped (shower a bit noisy but part of the fun), public transport a minute away, and the breakfast satisfying. Although not a porridge eater, it looked good.

This was my first ever B+B experience and even though I'm not sure if I will choose these types of accommodations again, the host Bill, could likely make a convert out of anyone. Our room, on the top floor, was comfortable, clean and a good value. The location was close enough to all major attractions including the Royal Mile, the...
