Kew House is like a home-from-home, only a bit more luxurious and comfortable! The welcome is exceptionally friendly, and the landlord's tips on how to get around this beautiful and bustling festival-time city are most helpful. This was our second trip, and it won't be our last.

Very good position for public transport, few stopps to center only. Nice pub next door. Ever so friendly landlord and staff. Very clean, perfectly organised. Great breakfast freshly cooked. Quiet situation even so at main road. Car park at rearside.

Kew House is a brilliant B&B, that is more than just an other B&B, it is a home away from home. The hospitality and friendliness from Ian, one of the owners, starts right away, when you book your room in order to meet your requirements. From arrival to departure you are treated as a friend of the house and you... More

Great, friendly people, perfect location, delicious breakfast. Everything was just great! The owners could give a lot of useful information about the city and were very welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend this B&B.

Beautifully presented property could not fault it at all. The choice of breakfast covered any diet requirements and were most enjoyable. Ian was full of knowledge needed to help you get around Edinburgh whether by bus or walking. All in all a very welcoming friendly,clean establishment. I have no problems at all recommending this B&B.

ianEdinburgh, Owner at Kew House, responded to this review

It is very kind of you to take the time to review and we are really pleased you enjoyed our breakfasts. I like to think that freshly cooked food always tastes better and I'm sure you will agree. Thank you also from your commendation to others and you would be most welcome when next in Edinburgh. Ian More

We spent five nights in the self-contained two-bedroom cottage located on the lane behind Kew House and found it to be exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The owners were the perfect hosts: very helpful, knowledgable and showing great attention to detail. The cottage included a fully-equipped kitchen with a good standard of pots, pans, implements etc included, a dishwasher, full-sized oven... More

We stayed for three very comfortable nights with Ian and Alan in Kew House in May, in a room on the first floor. The welcome was friendly and our hosts unobtrusive - but somehow always there in a few seconds if you wanted anything! The whole establishment was well appointed, with a sitting room just for guests and everything was... More

This outstanding guest house offers a warm welcome and excellent accommodation in an attractive environment. Breakfast is also outstanding in choice and food quality. The house is well located with frequent buses to and from the city centre. Having visited Edinburgh for over forty years, I now can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Second time of visiting - and consistently good. About to book another week - so that probably says it all. Perfect location for the city centre and Edinburgh Festivals, and the standard of the accommodation is exceptional. The Sheppard Family.

We are so happy you enjoyed your second visit to the apartment and love the catchphrase about booking! Thank you for sharing your comments with others. I know the apartment works well for you and there is no greater compliment than a returning guest.. We'll see you next year Ian and Alan More
