I stayed here for the weekend with my mum and my sister. We were checked in quickly by Lizzie and she gave us maps of all the bars and restaurants nearby and a helpful lost of buses we could get to go into the city centre which was a really nice touch. Our room was clean and spacious with a... More

We stayed here for one night with our two daughters and it was amazing. Lizzie and Gary were very welcoming and so friendly. They engaged our seven year old instantly by getting her to check us in and fill our our breakfast requests. The rooms are fresh and contemporary, with big TVs and DVD players. Such a comfy bed! I...

We visited Lizzie and Gary's Guesthouse on 19th December for two nights, our flight meant we arrived at 11am before check in time at 2pm, as I had let them know this previously they luckily managed to get our room ready for this time which i was very pleased with. We were warmly welcomed and Lizzie helped us out with... More

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!
