A great stay. Friendly owners who made me feel very welcome. The chocolate easter eggs were a lovely suprise! I would look forward to coming back here. Very clean. The breakfast was lovely as well. The accommodation is easy to get too from the airport and has good bus links into town.

What a great experience this was. Kew House is an absolute delight in every way. First thing's first, this is a guest house and there is no point comparing it to the large soulless corporate hotels. The owners run it and offer first class, personal hospitality. This combines with light, airy and spotlessly clean modern rooms filled with special small... More

Brilliant hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. We will definitely be telling anyone we know. Made our visit so great .It really was nice and refreshing having such a good hotel. The food was excellent and plentiful. Only a short distance into the city. Definitely use it again.

We came to Edinburgh to see the Ireland v Scotland 6 nations match. Due to work commitments we couldn't get an earlier flight, which meant that we would miss booking in - whoever Ian the owner was really understand and when we arrived, Alan was waiting for us and checked us in.

We had the pleasure of staying at Kew House a couple of weekends ago, Unfortunately only for one night. What a gem. From the very warm welcome from Ian to the fantastic freshly cooked breakfast from Alan, everything was perfect. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm and inviting, with the Sherry and chocolates just adding that final touch. It was... More

Kew house was a very fantastic surprise! Edinburgh is a great city for a night out or a romantic weekend away. But finding accommodation that is not miles away or super expensive is very hard. Both my wife and I could not believe the quality and the attention to detail that we experienced at Kew house!! The guest house is... More

We stayed at this location our last night in Edinburgh. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They suggested some great restaurants in the area. The rooms were clean and they provided a nice breakfast in the morning. The beds were really comfortable and I really appreciated the complementary chocolates! There is also a bus stop near by so you... More

Booked via website following a search for hotels, simple process and promptly received a confirmation email from Ian. The main reasons we initially chose Kew House was its location, 15 minute walk to the city centre and the good reviews on Trip Advisor.
