“Brilliant time in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2016 via mobile

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 very well looked after.

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! My only complaint is the lack of parking, but it is a big city, and there is lots of street parking nearby.

Were just back from a 3night stay at this gem of a guest house, Highfield Guest House, is a warm and welcoming place to stay. Our room was very well equipped had everything you need, the bathroom facilities are first class, spotlessly clean, with a great shower. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and perfectly presented, yummy and plentiful.
Maggie and Kate, are both wonderful hosts, helping you with directions, bus times and prices, both ladies are knowledgeable and eager to help. We walked into the city through the Meadows Park taking us around 20mins, though the bus services are very good and plentiful. We also enjoyed a walk to Holyrood Park and going up to Arthur's seat. We ate in the "Old Bell" which we found to be very good quality at reasonable prices. Thank you, Maggie and Kate, for helping make our break chilled and comfortable. You do it very, very well. Stuart and Brenda :)

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 the portions are rather large. Maggie and Kate are nice people and quite helpful when it comes to finding your way around in Edinburgh. All told I enjoyed my stay there and hope to stay there again next time I am in Edinburgh.

We had a fantastic overnight stay at Highfield. Maggie,Gordon and Kate made us feel so welcome from start to finish. The room was so comfortable and we had all facilities we needed. The breakfast was top class and set us up for the day ahead.
The location is great and is ideal base for exploring Edinburgh.
We will definitely be back.
