I travel a lot, and this guest house felt like home. The hosts were very friendly (but not at all intruding - which is a very important advantage) and offered me all the necessary information about the area. My room was unbelievably lovely, with a large comfortable bed, lots of pillows, a TV, a wide window-sill where I could sit... More

This really is one of the most comfortable accomodations we've ever been. Location really couldn't be much better, as it takes only 5 minutes on a bus to Royal Mile. Or if you want to walk, which is nice to when the location is so nice, it takes about the same time to some quality pubs to get something to... More

We booked our stay at Kingsway Guest House at late notice. On arrival the welcome from our host was very warm and friendly. We were given information about buses, provided with maps and given ideas on what to do during our stay. Our rooms were clean and comfortable with modern and clean shower rooms. The tea and coffee facility in... More

We loved it at the Kingsway. Gary and Lizzie were very welcoming and very helpful with advice about getting around town, eating, etc. The location, as noted elsewhere, is quiet but within easy reach of central Edinburgh attractions. (What a great bus system in this town.) Comfortable, charming room. Great breakfasts with plenty of choices. Plenty of pubs and so... More

Lizzie and Gary have an outstanding B&B, cleanliness, location, breakfasts, and sites and directional info are the best. Located in a quiet neighborhood it is close to bus stops to go anywhere in Edinburgh. We stayed for three nights and loved everything. Thanks Lizzie and Gary!

Was in Edinburgh for the weekend visiting a friend. Stayed in the twin room, which has a seperate (but private) bathroom. Lizzie and Gary were brilliant hosts. The place was clean as anything and really, really comfortable. There is no noise at night and the beds are very nice. Located approximately 20 minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley station, it is...

We stayed at the Kingsway for four nights. Best of all worlds - quiet neighbourhood, but close to whatever bustle you need to get to. Arthur’s Seat practically at your doorstep and nice walk to the Royal Mile. Fantastic breakfast - a consistently good, full Scottish standard or a varied daily special. Spotless rooms attended to by an efficient cleaning... More

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Our room was spotless, very comfortable bed and en suite spotless. Breakfast was great and so well organised. It would set you up for the day. Lizzy and Gary are really welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Thanks for your hospitality and if anyone is looking for somewhere to stay you should book here.... More

Our third stay at Kingsway and it just gets better and better! Very central location with private, off street parking, easy walk to all the tourist attractions but also loads of quick and frequent buses from just outside the house. The bedrooms are great, very spacious, super comfortable beds, great nights sleep as very quiet, room has everything you need... More

Kingsway was recommended to us and we spent three nights there. The experience could not have been more pleasant. Their "green" business credentials were just icing on the cake. This is a wonderfully well maintained three story Victorian house. We stayed on the top floor, the stairs are steep so anyone uncomfortable with climbing stairs should ask about that, we... More
