Gary and Lizzie are simply stellar hosts. Every accommodation was made, they readied our room early, breakfast was delicious, and they packed us a takeaway breakfast for our early departure. The room was plenty spacious for two, with a wonderful view as well (looking out the back of the house). Plenty of great restaurants and pubs nearby, and Gary &... More

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed a great breakfast everyday. Gary & Lizzie are excellent hosts. In addition to the regular breakfast menu they also offered a daily breakfast special. They arranged for a cab for us, made change if we needed it for bus fare and packed us a take away breakfast the day we left early to... More

We stayed here for five days while vacationing in Scotland. Gary and Lizzie are the perfect hosts. The breakfasts are wonderfully prepared and vary each day. The room was a little tight but clean and tidied each day. It is easy to get to the attractions with the bus service just down the corner.

We stayed at Kingsway July 2014 for two nights. Both Lizzie and Gary were very kind and helpful. The room was lovely, looking out on the street but very quiet. Our room did not have a bathroom in it, but it was easy to walk across the short hall to our own locked one. We walked to dinner both evenings... More

The house is about 5-10 mins away from the centre of Edinburgh with plentiful bus service to and from the main road which is about 100 meters away.They have everything you could want at... More

My partner and I stayed at the Kingsway after reading some of the sparkling reviews on TripAdvisor. We stayed for two nights as a short break away following a work-related conference in Edinburgh. Initially, we were enticed by the relatively low price, in comparison to other B&B's in the area, but the lower price, did not mean a lower standard!... More

I stayed at Kingsway with a friend on our trip through the UK for three nights. We had Room 6 at the top of the house and it was charming and very comfortable. The house itself feels familiarly elegant, not too fussy but very nice. Our room was stylishly decorated and warm, with plenty of space for both of us.... More

Stayed at the KIngsway in the beginning of February with two friends. We shared a room for 3 - was quite spacious and we had our own bathroom! I really enjoyed the stay - everything nice and clean and the breakfast was really nice. The Kingsway is not in the center but we usually walked to the center nevertheless. Lizzy... More
