We were looking for a B&B within walking distance of the city centre and somewhere safe for the car. We got far more than this. Location - this B&B is within easy walking distance of the city centre. I would say it was around a mile. There are plenty of eating and drinking places on route, to stop of if... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and even happier that you chose to share it with others. I'm sure seeing Billy Connolly was more enjoyable but we were happy to play our part. Though check-in is from 2.00pm we always try to have rooms ready earlier if we know someone is arriving before then. It's always worthwhile letting us know.... More

This was our 3rd visit to Scotland and our 3rd time at Kew House. We were welcomed like family and had a beautiful room. Breakfasts were wonderful and they made every effort to help with directions and suggestions. Immaculate rooms and lovely bedding. Perfect quiet location. Step out the door to the bus. Great suggestions for places to dine. We... More

Very nice bed and breakfast in Edinburgh Scotland. Close to all of the places one would like to visit as well being very close to Hay Market train station. Food was very well prepared and the service was excellent. Ian did a great job of answering our questions and helping us with our visit.

Ian made us very welcome, answered all our questions, figured out how to fit us in when we had messed up our scheduled visit, let us change to the (great!!) apartment in the back, where we could do our own laundry. I can't recommend this place enough. The bus is very very easy into town.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad the apartment was available for you. At least it let you catch up on your holiday laundry! I hope the rest of your vacation went well and hopefully we'll see you again some time. Ian More

Kew House is an upscale B&B with lovely rooms (incl ensuite). There are wonderful extras such as the small bottle of whiskey in the room and the takeaway bag with breakfast for an early start. It's well situated about a 20 minute walk from the city centre. The breakfast is very nice with a good assortment of individualized choices. The... More

After booking Kew House, thanking me and politely asking what time we would be arriving and asked if they could be any assistance during our stay, I emailed back timings and questions relevant to the local area and things to do, I was instantly replied to with great information that really helped assist us on our trip. When we arrived... More

I stayed with Ian and Allen after another hotel double-booked my room, and these guys were great! I ended up with a 2 bedroom house to myself- spotlessly clean, lots of attention to detail. The location was ideal as there are buses right outside and you can walk to the tram station which I used to get me to work.... More

Recently spent 5 nights at Kew House as guests of Ian and Allen. Their B&B is in a great location: quiet and residential, but only a few blocks from the train/bus station and within walking distance of the city center and good restaurants. Our room and the entire house was immaculate. Daily breakfasts were wonderful, with a wide array of... More

Kew House is just like being at home in Edinburg, even better. Great location in a residential are, near Murrayfield Stadium, bout within walking distance of the city centre and well communicated by bus and tram. Comfortable, clean rooms and common spaces, and fantastic attention from the owners. At a very reasonable prices. Ten points

Very helpful & friendly hosts. Although our room was small it was very comfortable & quiet & we were made to feel at home. The lounge room was available for our use if we needed. Originally we only booked for one night but had a change of plan & were able to add an extra night with no problems. We... More
