We were met with information and advice on what to do in Edinburgh. Our apartment was not ready since we arrived early but the owners were very helpful allowing us to use a room to change. Our serviced apartment was perfect for three people. We had everything we needed - kitchen, washing machine, everything you need in a small house... More

This was a great B&B - better than many hotels I've stayed in. Run by people who clearly love what they're doing and take a great pride in providing the best. Room was comfortable, breakfast was great and lots of nice little touches. Location convenient for both airport and city centre.

I have only had the pleasure of staying here twice so far but will definetly return. It is a treasure of a place, situated so close to Princes Street. So comfortable, high quality furnishings, amazing breakfast and fantastic hosts. A home from home :)

The B&B was a delightful place to stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The owners experience showed through in everything from breakfast to the little extras in the room. The room was very clean and comfortable and within walking distance to town or a bus right outside the door. Great job Ian and Allan, No problems recommending to stay here.

Kew House is a delight. Ian and Alan were most helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We weren't sure of restaurants within the Edinburgh Haymarket and both Ian and Alan recommended lovely places to eat. We had our evening meal in the La P'tite Folie it was lovely, this was down to their recommendation and... More

I am grateful for you kind comments and thank you for taking the time to make them. I'm also happy the restaurant choice worked for you. We try to find out what guests are looking for before making any suggestions and usually get it right but not always so I'm glad it worked for you. We would be happy to... More

We stayed in the apartment with our adult daughter and the whole experience was excellent. There is a good, efficient bus service into town with the bus stop very close by. The apartment is clean and well equipped with maid service and a daily continental breakfast provided. Ian and Alan were very welcoming and helpful. All in all a delightful... More

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
