On arrival at the Garfield there was lots of free parking, we were welcomed by Michelle who was very genuine and offered to help us with our luggage to our room on the second floor and ensured that we had everything that we needed for our stay.
The room was clean, and quite spacious. The wetroom was very clean and there was plenty of hot water, although the shower drainage was a bit slow so the whole bathroom floor was wet including the bathmat.
Breakfast is very good, and plentiful with cereal, fruit, yoguart etc available for you to help yourself before a choice of cooked breakfast with as much tea/coffee as you need.
At breakfast we met the owner Martin who was very comited to us having a pleasant stay. Nothing was too much trouble and he was helpful in getting us a taxi into town, advising on bus routes, places to visit etc. We did walk into Edinburgh a couple of times, but buses are frequent and a taxi £7-8.
A good value b&b in a dood location, we would stay here again.

Garfield Guest House is special in that it is run by two born and bred Edinburghers. Martin and Michelle will orientate you in a way that only true locals can. So why go anywhere else?

The breakfast is still a hit and now they serve PIZZA DINNERS. Really tasty and generous. Do try the HAGGIS pizza! Also licenced now to serve alcohol, so a good place to stop by for dinner even if you're not staying.

Had a very comfortable 2 nights stay at the Garfield whilst attending the Open at Muirfield. We wanted to be away early each morning for the Golf and although it was the weekend, staff were brought in early to prepare our scrumptious full breakfast. Many thanks for that ! Our bed was huge so space was a bit tight but very cosy and spotless clean, the bathroom was small but a brilliant shower. We received a really warm welcome from Martin and all the staff and would not hesitate to return.Free parking outside the hotel and bus stops in many directions an added bonus.

Room Tip: Rooms at back are quiet, rooms overlooking the road have a lovely view of the Castle.

Good location, great breakfast, in a really nice quiet guest house, ideal if you want a cheap city break & perfect if you've got a family. Staff are genuinely friendly & helpful, not just working to a formula, particularly Michelle on reception, who went to some length to ensure we were happy with our room, & Martin the chef/owner who was efficient & attentive. We've stayed at this guest house many times & enjoyed this last visit very much, largely due to the quality of the staff and the value for money in one of our favourite cities!!!

Upon arrival, we were shown to our room, Room was ok, but disappointed with the bathroom, it was actually a Wet room, where everything gets wet, even when using a shower curtain, Minute TV, Hard Pillows, and was not told about the Guest House also now being a Pizza Restaurant, Breakfast first morning , did not happen as owner did not turn up, second morning I asked for a full English with no eggs, but happy for anything else as extra, I received a Chipolata sausage ,two bacon , half a tomato, two small mushrooms, and a small amount of beans, I thought Scotland was proud of there Hearty meals, Obviously not.
A selection of Hair Dryers, a Hoover and Ironing boards situated at a collection point outside our room, what else can I say.
The lovely lady Michelle was very apologetic, gave me some money back on the room rate, and a box of Chocolates for the missed breakfast, very grateful for that indeed and thank you Michelle, you made what was a very poor stay , a little better, would love to come back to Edinburgh again,

Room Tip: Rear of the property are the Quietest rooms, make sure that you are happy with a wet room , if you are expecting a proper bathroom
