Just back from a fantastic few days in Edinburgh. Highfields Guest House was perfect. Lovely room, very comfy and well appointed. Plenty of space for the 4 of us. The breakfasts were wonderful. Lots of choice and plenty of food. The bus journey into town was very easy and we even walked one day taking just 30 mins. We were...

This is an absolute gem. Everything is clean, well maintained, and charming. We happened to be the only people in the b&b during our stay, so we had the house to ourselves. The individually prepared breakfasts were delicious. They even gave us a togo breakfast on the morning we were leaving for the airport! Overall, a great place to stay!...

The Highfield Guest House is an ideal place to stay. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes by bus into the city centre and Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park are within walking distance. The room was rather comfortable and the bathroom had everything one needs. The water pressure in the shower was excellent. They cook a very good breakfast and...

A really lovely guest house. Maggie and Gordon were friendly and helpful; the room was warm, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. If we come back to Edinburgh we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.
