We stayed on the top floor family room. There was adequate room for the 3 of us. Nicely furnished with a nicely decorated bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. A nice selection of breakfast items were available every day and we enjoyed breakfast each morning. Our host, Lizzie, is very friendly and helped us get acclimated to the area where... More

I picked this bed and breakfast after reading most of the reviews and I was not disappointed. The room was a good size as well as the bathroom with a good sized shower. Especially liked that they had coffee in the room as I drink it at all hours of the day. The one difference I noticed here was that... More

During our time there we were afraid we would not be able to make it in time for check in at 6pm from our drive up to Edinburgh. Lizzie was really accommodating to call me up to make an alternate arrangement for check in. Really top notch service. Breakfast was excellent, Gary's bacon wrapped asparagus with poach eggs is amazing.... More

We stayed at the Kingsway for three nights. The room was lovely decorated and the bed very comfortable. Our private bathroom was across the stairs but that didn't bother us. Everything is spotlessly clean and well taken care of. The guest house is situated in a very nice residential area but still close enough to the city centre. A bus... More

Kingsway guest house is a lovely house, Gary and Lizzie are extremely friendly and helpful. The décor is elegant and refined, and the breakfasts are lovely, especially the Belgian waffles, (daily special). Room 6 is a lovely room, spacious and comfortable, although on top floor so if you have trouble with stairs ask for a lower floor. Lizzie kindly moved... More

Kingsway is located on a quiet street just off a main road that leads south from Royal Mile/Old City. A long walk to Royal Mile but good bus service. Lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. Owners Gary and Lizzy are great. They fixed us "to go" breakfasts twice when we had to be out early. Hot breakfast was delightful the... More

We were actually staying next door, but didn't find out until we arrived that breakfast wasn't included. The Kingsway very kindly took us in for breakfast each morning, which we were most greatful for!! Very friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Our friends stayed here, and I can add the rooms were clean and of a high standard with ensuite included,... More

Great place in central yet quiet location. The room was light, bright and spacious with a modern en-suite - with good water pressure. Breakfast was a real treat, especially the delicious daily special. I will be sure to keep on staying here whenever I visit Edinburgh.

We had a quad room at the top of the house. There were two sets of steep stairs, to reach our room. The room was adequate size for 4 people, and bathroom was small. Decor was plain and clean. One complaint. was there was a skylight in the high ceiling of our room, which did not have a blind,so in... More

I liked being about 12 blocks south of the center, it worked really well for us. Bus system is great and is less than a block from the stop. Wonderful couple running the place and were very helpful and kind. Breakfast was very good, freshly cooked to order and many options were there (including haggis). Be aware that the family... More
