David and I were greeted warmly and shown our room which was a twin room, situated on the main floor at the back. It was a very quiet room, small but had everything you needed and extremely clean. The beds were very comfortable and there was tea and coffee provided. The bathroom was small but immaculate with lovely towels and...

We've been to different guest houses and B&B's but this ones surely one of the best we had. We got a really friendly welcome and got an amazing informative talk with one of the owners. Our room was amazing and really crisp! It really is an excellent place to sleep and have breakfast, because they personalise everything for every customer...

I was far from disappointed upon staying at Highfield Guest House for the long Easter weekend. Prior to my visit in Edinburgh, I was informed via email by the hosts of the best means of transport to get to the B&B (even though I did walk from the airport - not recommended if you plan on more walking throughout the...

Me and my friend came for a last minute trip away and booked the night before for a bargain price of £70 including breakfast! The Guest House is stunning and our double room was spotless. The hosts Kate and Gordon were very attentive. Keep it guys!

I really enjoyed staying at Highfield Guest house. The room was clean, nicely decorated and very quiet. The bed and bed linnen were of a very good quality. Breakfast was amazing! I would certainly stay there again! On a weaker side, the shower was a little slow and not powerful enough, but that certainly didn't spoil my stay.

An absolutely wonderful stay. Very comfortable, cosy twin room, with tip-top decor, and nice outlook onto garden. We were made to feel most welcome from the start and breakfast was a delight, loads of choice and delicious. Parking was easy round the corner in a quiet cul-de-sac and the bus stop into the city centre was a minute's walk away....

This guest house is truly amazing value. Gordon, Maggie and Kate work so hard to provide a relaxing and spotlessly clean stay. We will certainly recommend to everyone and also stay longer next time. Great room, breakfast, loads of bus information etc. 5stars !
