Great hospitality from Ian and his team, always ready to assist in all ways. Room very clean, comfortable and cosy, it was home away from home. Very good wifi connections in room and hotel. Well situated. The bus shuttle from the airport (Airport Link100) stops just in front of the hotel. Haymarket tram stop is just 5 mins walk to... More

I have stayed in a number of B&Bs and Hotels in Edinburgh and Kew House is by far the best. Standards are very high. The rooms are up-to-date and spotless. The wireless is excellent. The service is fantastic. Plus it's very handy for the airport bus and only about 5 mins walk from Haymarket Station. I hate recommending it, as... More

Yet another great experience at Kew House. We cannot rate this accommodation highly enough. We won't stay anywhere else in Edingburgh. This is our forth visit. Ian and Allan are the perfect hosts. Look no further than Kew House when planning your trip to Edinburgh. You will not be disappointed. Joy and Maurice.

We loved and enjoyed our stay at the Kew House - definitely recommend it! The hosts at Kew House (Ian & Allan) were very welcoming and guided us really well so we could get around the city and sightseeing areas with ease. We spent 2 nights in Kew House and absolutely loved it! The room was very comfortable, clean and... More

We have worked out that we have been coming to Kew House for 10 years and it's still our favourite place to stay; not just because Ian is a fabulous host and Alan is a wonderful cook but also the B&B is always fresh and spotlessly clean. Standards are kept very high and that is no mean feat over the... More

We spent two nights at Kew House. Our room was comfortable, breakfast was good, parking available on site and the bus near the doorstep took ran regularly into the area of town where the Castle and tourist attractions are located. There was also a bus to the airport just steps away from the house as well. The hosts, Allan and... More

We stayed in Kew house for just one night (unfortunately) during our short trip to Edinbugh to show a friend the city. We were met by Ian who welcomed us, showed us our rooms and gave us all the information that we needed to get a bus into Edinburgh. Kew House is situated very close to the bus route both... More

We just spent a wonderful 4 nights in Edinburgh and the Kew House was a perfect base. We were greeted by Allan, who made us feel welcome and orientated us to our surroundings, tips for getting about, eating recommendations and tours booked all attended to with great efficiency. A good selection of delicious breakfasts were available and served with good... More

This is a terrific place----the room was larger than expected, it is very quiet, and the cook to order breakfast was super. The airport and city buses stop almost at the door which makes getting either downtown or the airport very easy. There also a number of good places to eat within 15 minutes walking distance which is really nice... More

My wife and I visited Kew House along time ago when we first met and we loved it so much we decided to spend our 1st wedding anniversary there last week.
