I had a wonderful time at Kingsway Guest House. I picked it because it was Rick Steve's recommended and they offered a single-guest discount. I'm so happy I stayed here. The room was a good size and very nicely decorated, the bathroom was pristine, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was decent; not fabulous, but satisfying. The bathroom was... More

(the easy way to get around) and for local eating places. When we visit Edinburgh again I... More

The B&B was lovely! The owners are very warm and welcoming and obviously love what they do. It's a little way out of the centre, but walkable if you want to stretch your legs, otherwise it is right on the route of several bus lines which come past regularly. Bedroom was very pretty and super comfy beds!

Our room was very nice, clean, and spacious. Gary and Lizzie were both very nice and most helpful. Breakfast was delicious and the location of Kingsway was close to bus routes & several good restaurants. Highly recommend.
