Our room was very comfortable with plenty of space. No end to the hot water for all four of us to take showers. From the bed to the tissue paper, high quality. Very close to everything you want to see. A delicious and hearty breakfast will start your day off right every morning. Gary and Lizzy the owners go out... More

There has been lot of changes since our first visit years ago - all for the better! The rooms now has better facilities including internet radios, big TV and new shower room with a very big shower tray. We enjoyed... More

Stayed here for New Year and loved every moment!. Breakfast was fantastic and well above what we expected from a B&B. The event itself was really enjoyable. Great atmosphere and the weather held out too. We appreciated the touch of being offered a whiskey the next day, apparently a Scots tradition, which we fully embraced. Hosts were great and had...

Had a lovely Christmas trip to Edinburgh with my son, stay at the kingsway was great, Lizzie and Garry were great hosts providing a lovely breakfast. My son left a blanket and phone charger in the room which they returned promptly,thanks so much for this. Would certainly recommend for anyone visiting Edinburgh.

We enjoyed our stay at the Kingsway Guesthouse the breakfasts were good and Lizzie was very friendly. We were guaranteed a king size bed on the reservation but the bed we slept was a full size. We were in a room on the top floor which was fine but it had a slanted roof so we were not able to... More

Can not rate the Kingsway highly enough. This was our second visit to Edinburgh having already stayed with Lizzie and Gary, who are great hosts with a fantastic knowledge of the city. Have recommened to friends who enjoyed their stay. Breakfast choice is very good, rooms are kept lovely by the staff who are also very friendly and helpful.

This was our second trip to Edinburgh and based on information from Rick Steves' book, we decided to stay at the Kingsway. We had stayed in that area before so the location was perfect. It was far enough from the city center to be quiet but easy to get to by the many buses that come by. Our hosts provided... More

My partner and I lived in Edinburgh years before and this was the perfect base to visit family located nearby. We received a great welcome from the Kingsway´s lovely owners. We thought we knew the local area but the map provided a great selection of local restaurants which were well researched and we discovered a couple of new favourites! The... More

We really felt at home here during our stay. The breakfasts were the best we had during our two weeks in Scotland. They even packed a takeaway breakfast for us the night before when we left for the airport at 5 in the morning. At the end of the residential street where Kingsway is located, there are a slew of...
