Maggie and Gordon are excellent and friendly hosts at this homely and comfortable guest house. Maggie shares a wealth of information to enhance your stay. The rooms are clean and a good size. The Scottish breakfast is excellent and there are cereals, yogurts, fruit and toast too. The location is very good with regular buses to the centre of the city. We had a lovely stay and will definitely stay at Highfield again when we return to Edinburgh. Thoroughly recommended.

I enjoyed my stay at High Field Guest House very much. Kate and Maggie were very helpful and accommodating. My room was the single which was a little bit tight for the bags that I had, but only because this stay was part of a much longer trip. The location was very convenient for the bus lines running into the city almost every 3 minutes.

This was one of my best European experiences. Maggie, Gordon and Kate are terrific. They treated us as to assure our comfort as well as give us a customed drawn map as to our daily adventures in the city/beyond. The rooms were perfect with all the personal necessities; the cleaniness of the room/bathroom/dining area was absolutely perfect. Highfied Guest house is conveniently located next to several bus stops and just a short walk to Royal Mile/Princes Street. Our stay with Maggie, Gordon and Kate was the topping on the cake---cannot say enough great things about this place, location and the hosts!
