My wife and I recently returned to Canada after nearly two weeks in Scotland. During our stay in Edinburgh, we stayed at Kingsway. This B&B is excellent. The B&B offered off-street parking and kept our bags for a few hours after we arrived early from our overseas flight so we could tour the city that morning. The B&B is cozy... More

My partner and I stayed at this lovely B&B for the second time a couple weeks ago and we had to write a review regarding how satisfied we were! First of all, we surprisingly received the same room that I stayed in four years ago and noticed that the room had been tastefully refurbished. The bathroom was brand new with... More

I was there in July for 4 nights and not one complaint. Breakfast could not get better and I love to eat. Rooms were nice and clean and the house has original character with but all needed upgrades and great views. Owners and staff are very helpful with my stay and travels, biking taxis or car, local map of great... More

My partner and I stayed here in April 2015 -- the location is excellent, close to buses into the city, and also very easy for going out to Rosslyn. However, the walk to the city is not too long either, and it's very well located for Arthur's Seat. The service is excellent -- friendly and plenty of recommendations for places... More

Kingsway is in a side-street (so not noisy) about 1.5 miles south of the Royal Mile and other Edinburgh sites. So a long walk, but the buses are very frequent and cost £3 return. Gary and Lizzie are friendly and do a variety of breakfasts including pancakes with bacon and maple syrup - scrumptious ! The only negative was that... More

Chose the Kingsway as suggested by Rick Steve's and very happy we did. We had a third floor room with lots of natural light, including a skylight in the very modern bathroom. Lizzy and Gary were nice enough to let us leave our luggage since we arrived quite early...they are lovely hosts who are more than happy to answer all... More

My family of 4 stayed on the 3rd floor with bathroom in suite for I'll be there in five minutes days. Gary and Izzy were terrific hosts. We arrived before check in, tired from traveling, and they graciously welcomed us in, gave us breakfast on the spot, and expedited our room so we could check in and crash. They have... More

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
