just returned from a two night stay , everything was just as we had read. Room was lovely extremely clean and comfortable and the hosts could not do enough for you . It was a 15 min walk to the centre or there was an option to take frequent buses, so location was not a problem. Would struggle to find... More

We went to Edinburgh for a week-end and the Six Nations Scotland/France rugby game. The accommodation was perfectly located to get to Murrayfield as it is only a few minutes walk. It is also perfect to go to Haymarket, shops, restaurant and cafes (15 minutes walk?). The airport bus stops in front of the Kew Terrace and the bus to... More

We stayed there just for one night but general impression: great, cosy place. We enjoyed our breakfast and actually everything else... We do recommend the place. An excellent location with a bus stop on the other side of the road taking you in 10 min to the city centre, very clean rooms and fresh, tasty food.

I stayed for a night recently at Kew House as I was going to a Rugby Match at Murrayfield. I found this Guest House to be first class in every way. I was made very welcome when I arrived and the care and attention which I received was fantastic. I felt very much at home and the bedroom was beautiful... More

It was lovely to meet you. I think the result of the previous night's rugby match may have also contributed to your enjoyable visit!! We get used to putting a brave face on Scottish defeats. It was a pleasure looking after you and we hope to see you again soon. More

Our first time visit to Kew House was one to remember. The perfect organisation, the warm welcome we had, the kind attentions we found in our nice room, the helpful and friendly mindset of our hosts, the outstanding and varied breakfast... everything was just perfect. Thank you Alan and Ian !

We stayed in Kew House for two nights in June 2012 while our around Scotland trip and it was the best place where we stayed. The owners were so nice and polite that I am remembering them still quite often. We will be back someday!!!

This was my third visit to Kew House in Edinburgh; this time with my husband and mother-in-law. Alan and Ian are welcoming, always willing to help - and just generally excellent hosts. Rooms are spotlessly clean, smartly decorated and accessorised. The chocolates and sherry a welcome bonus! Breakfast was, again, excellent with a good menu and good quality food. We'll... More

Out of the four places my husband and I stayed on our recent trip to Europe/UK, this one easily tops the list. Ian and Alan, who run the establishment, were fantastic hosts who go above and beyond to create a wonderful environment for their guests.
