We stayed at Kew House for a weekend break just before Christmas. Checking in early wasn't a problem, we were made to feel very welcome and upgraded to a superior room. The hotel is beautifully clean & peaceful, with parking as an added bonus. The owners were very friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. And the breakfast!... More

It was kind of you to review Kew House so positively and I'm glad you had an enjoyable stay. There was a really seasonal buzz about the city this December and I'm so glad we played our part in your pre-Christmas break. Hopefully we'll see you again. Ian More

Stayed at Kew House from 02/01/15 - 04/01/15. The accommodation was faultless, really clean, modern and very nicely decorated. Our room was the family room with a really comfy king size bed and a really comfy single bed (according to our daughter). The room had its own en-suite, again very clean, some nice touches in the room such as a... More

I found the Kew House on trip advisor after we realized our first guest house would be closing early for the Christmas holiday. We did a 2 day stay right before Christmas and had a lovely time. The owners were the most perfect, welcoming couple, even had some Mom tendencies, taking very good care of us. Since we were checking... More

We have spent a lot of time in Edinburgh in recent years - both on business and for pleasure - and Kew House is always our first choice. The five star quality starts with the warm welcome and helpful advice and guidance throughout the stay from Ian and Alan, continues through the immaculate and well equipped accommodation and what better...

We arrived half an hour early and one of the hosts did not seem at all pleased. The room was pleasant and clean but the bathroom was tiny, the width of a small shower.The guest lounge is a nice size. The dining room was small and lacked any warmth. We have traveled a lot and stayed in many b&bs but... More

I was somewhat surprised and upset to read the personal attack in your review, to such an extent that I wasn’t sure initially that you had actually stayed. After checking back to October I think I may have found your booking but feel there may be little I can say in way of response as it looks as though Kew... More

My wife and I visited Kew House of 2 separate occasions, both for the Hogmanay in Edinburgh (2011 and 2013). This is arguably the hotel's busiest time of year but I'm glad to say that was in no way evident. The staff are some of the nicest people I had ever met and always made time for questions, advice, or... More

We stayed for 2 nights over the last weekend in November and there is very little to add to what has already been stated on this site, Kew House is really a super place to base yourself if visiting Edinburgh. It is located about a 20 minute walk into the city or jump on the very frequent bus that stops... More

I stayed 2 nights in the single bedroom. This was quite small but with an excellent ensuite shower etc. The whole place was immaculately clean and attractive. Ian was most welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were outstanding and ideal for someone watching their weight too! You don't always get fresh fruit, fat-free yoghourt or smoked salmon but here it was... More

It was really kind of you to take the time to post a review. I also appreciate anyone who calls me a "lovely host" as I find as I get older "lovely" isn't always used much to describe me.

Title says it all. Stayed just one night( all the time I had). A real find and the hosts were attentive, courteous and obliging( qualities you dont often find these days). Would not hesitate but to recommend Kew House for a stay in Edinburgh.Other establishments could learn a lot by using Kew House as an example!!
