great little bed and breakfast
julie greeted us on arrival and give us great advice for leaving our car at their property and to get the no.
41 bus into princes st. right in the heart of edinburghj 10 minute bus journey. and the no. 41 back from princes st. drops you 30 second walk round the corner. i would definitely stay here again
Lovely place to stay, very friendly and helpful.
Looking forwards to going back again. Ground floor en suite room was absolutely perfect as was easy to get in and out with my wheelchair bound child. Plenty of room and very cosy and warm. Love the idea of the continental breakfast as I never eat in a morning but enjoyed a varied supper instead, Thanks again
Avoid- Miscommunication and false advertisement
We booked a double ensuite room and we were given non-ensuite room.
The room we stayed in was very small and it was an attic with low roof. There was a shared bathroom and we have to share that bathroom with a male student which was obviously not ideal if you are staying as a couple. The pictures provided on website are of ensuite room but there is only one ensuite room and other two rooms are non- ensuite. When I asked the land lady about my booking for ensuite room I was told that there is no ensuite room available and the ensuite room has already been taken by some lady. The land lady was persistent that I have not booked ensuite where as my booking says it was a booking for ensuite room.
It was not easy to find the hotel. The land lady kindly guided us and acted a guide by staying on line while i drove to hotel. I would strongly recommend ringing the hotel and checking which room you will be getting. Do not stay in that attic type room. I have contacted late rooms for refund and explained about miscommunication.
Welcoming, comfortable and great value
We received a warm welcome and Juile couldn't have been more helpful.
The room was small but had everything we needed for the night. The beds were comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. The fridge with continental breakfast (and the addition of wee folding tables to make eating more comfortable) was perfect for us as it allowed us to eat and check out early with no hassle. We did find it very warm but that is just out preference.
Overall the accommodation was perfect for our needs and excellent value for money.
Kind, friendly service
Very friendly and helpful service.
Good links via bus. Light breakfast of pre-packaged food items provided. This was good for us as it gave us greater flexibility of checkout time.
A Memorable Edinburgh Escape, For All The Right Reasons
My sister and I stayed at the Marchfield Guest House in late August 2015, while sampling the famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
While it took us a few minutes to find our destination from the main road, we were greeted warmly on arrival and given all the information we needed to help ensure we had an enjoyable stay.
Having struggled to source suitable accommodation in the city at this time of year, we were pleasantly surprised by the size and decor of our ensuite double bedroom (with an additional bed). The room was clean and very bright, with a hairdryer, towels, bathroom supplies and tea / coffee-making facilities to hand. Our beds were also perfectly comfortable.
We found the owner to be very friendly and helpful, while not being over-bearing. For example, there was no problem with us leaving our cases in the hall on our day of check-out as we were not flying until that evening and didn't fancy carrying them around the city with us for the day.
When compared to the excessive cost of some accommodation options in the city at that time of year (particularly hostels, where we may have had to share with several strangers), Marchfield Guest House was very good value for money.
It may be situated some minutes outside the city centre, however a regular bus service (day tickets just £4) meant this never became a problem for us. Even at night, we were able to get a taxi from Princes' Street for just under £10.
The owners take a novel approach to serving breakfast in that rather than the typical fry-up fare, a continental breakfast (fruit, yoghurts, cereal, croissants and juice) is instead served in the bedrooms by way of a mini-fridge. This suited us perfectly as it meant we didn't have to be up by a certain time to catch breakfast and could avail of a healthier breakfast than much of the standard fare. However, it's something to bear in mind if you love your English / Irish breakfast while away. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival was a blast - we're delighted we chose to visit and would very much recommend anyone tripping to Edinburgh for any occasion (business or leisure) stay at the Marchfield Guest House.
This accommodation was very clean, the owner friendly and helpful.
We had enjoyed having a fridge in the room as we had specific dietary requirements so we had storage for our foodstuffs. Easy access to town.
Very Pleasant Stay
The accommodation was very clean but basic.
The double bed was rather small for my tall husband but he slept well all the same. The landlady Julie was very helpful with any questions that we had. We were out all day and it was fine to come back to sleep at night.
