We stayed for 2 nights in August 2014 and we were very impressed. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. Their knowledge of the city was impeccable and very helpful. The room was great, the breakfast was fantastic and we both felt very at home at Kew House. The complimentary bottle of champagne was a lovely surprise as we were... More

We stayed here in early August for three nights whilst visiting Edinburgh and the tattoo. What we liked: Ian and Alan are very likeable gentlmen who run this establishment. It is presented to the highest standards throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them and Alan's knowledge of Edinburgh and how to get around were second to none... More

Thanks for your kind review and also the comments on Alan's breakfast. He puts a lot of effort into getting it "just right" for each guest and as he cooks to order, he always appreciates it when he feels his hard work is not in vain. Hopefully we'll see you again. More

Enjoyed a great night at Kew House during a trip to the Edinburgh Fringe. Great Banter from the owner and host and probably one of the best home cooked breakfasts ever! The location is on a busy road between Haymarket and Murrayfield but the soundproofing was excellent leading to a great nights sleep. No complaints what so ever. (Also one... More

We have stayed in many good and excellent B&Bs over the years, but this is possibly the best, fully living up to expectations set by the many positive reviews we've seen here and on other sites. We were heading up from Essex largely to attend the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and as finding accommodation there had proved difficult, we opted... More

Thanks you for your detailed review of Kew House and I am so glad you found it suited your needs for the Commonwealth Games. Sometimes we take for granted just how fortunate we are with both our great local bus service and also the amazing range of train routes out of the local station. It's not until someone points it...

Would give this place 10 stars if I could. Charming with top hat service. Wonderful hot breakfasts, including black pudding, haggis, bacon, sausages, porridge, scones, eggs cooked any way you want, Scottish smoked salmon. Need I say more? The hosts made us feel very welcome and gave us much needed advice about getting around. They even have a car park!... More

If you are visiting the city of Edinburgh, you'll be lucky if you get to stay at Kew House! Ian and Andrew are considerate hosts, providing everything from spot-on directions on how to get around the city to the wonderful cooked to order breakfasts.The best way to get around Edinburgh is by bus, and there is a stop right out...

Very reluctant to tell others about this "gem" - it may become too popular. Excellent service, very high standard of accommodation and an almost perfect location to explore Edinburgh. We will be back... The Sheppards - August 2014

We stayed at kew house for 3 nights. When we arrived we had a very warm welcome off the owners and was given lots of information on getting out and about around Edinburgh. We were shown to our room, it was very nice and spotlessly clean. The little touches in the room made it feel very welcoming. The next morning... More

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
