Highfield Guest House lives up to its good reviews. Good location to explore Edinburgh. Clean rooms with luxurious materials. Good choices for breakfast. Great service. Hope to return! Won't be looking for any other place on our visits to Edinburgh. Martin and Donna, Elgin UK

We stayed 3 nights in this guest house and the experience was fantastic. Highly recommended. Thanks so much Maggie for your help. The Highfield Guest House is a warm and welcoming guest house, the best option to pass some nights in this wonderful city.

I'd looked at reviews online before I booked and Highfield lived up to our expectations. Our room was lovely and very clean. There was a good choice at breakfast and Maggie, Gordon and Kate were all very friendly and helpful. It's easy to get into the city centre by bus. There are a few nice places to eat nearby, if...

I stayed one night for business during the week. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very well furnished. The free wifi was very handy for working. I had to leave very early the next day and although breakfast for the rest of the guests was served at 8am, a cold breakfast package was prepared for me to take on my...

Maggie and Gordon immediately make you feel at home upon arrival in Edinburgh. The Highfield Guest House is a warm and welcoming guest house with a good price and quality. Close to the Holyrood Park and well-reachable by bus from the city centre.

I stayed for a few nights whilst at the Kings Buildings site. The location was great, and there is also easy access to the centre of town (numerous buses). B&B was excellent, really nice breakfast, lovely clean room and Maggie and Gordon were really hospitable. Plus points for free WiFi too!

I used to live in Edinburgh and deciding where to stay when I was returning for a weekend visit wasn't the easiest choice - but couldn't have chosen a better place than Highfield Guest house. I had a lovely room with a nice big windows offering a lovely view, extremely comfortable bed and a very nice breakfast in the morning....

Great hosts, Maggie is a wealth of information and Gordon is fun! Out of centre location with easy access to lots of sights and the chance to explore other neighbourhoods around the city. Lovely rooms, a peaceful and relaxing stay!

Guest house a bit further from the center of town than I expected, but I was met by gracious hostess Kate who showed me to my lovely room and then set me up with full details about how to get around by bus and what attractions not to miss. Her advice to book ahead for the Real Mary King close...

I stayed at Highfield Guest House for 3 nights and it was very enjoyable. I did not get to meet Gordon but Maggie and Kate were really friendly, helpful and made me feel at home right away. I was in the only single room of the house, very comfy bed and quiet at night despite being on the road side....
