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

We stayed for a fun weekend stay in Edinburgh mixing sightseeing with 6nations rugby. Run by a welcoming, helpful and friendly couple who display great pride in how they run and host guests. Great rooms with nice decor and great facilities - tv/DVD library/DAB Radio. Great location - easy to get into the city centre via several buses or alternatively... More

Kingsway guest house is a great place to stay, very clean, located in a quiet area and well equipped. The owners, Lizzie and Gary make you feel very comfortable and provide very good advice as to where eat/visit. The breakfast is excellent. A place really worth staying at!

It's run by a lovely couple, who made us feel very welcome. The double room was very clean and comfortable, with a great choice of DVDs outside the room to entertain us. Free parking at the back, which is a big bonus, and buses into the city go from the main road next to the street. They gave us a... More

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...
