We stayed in Kew house for just one night (unfortunately) during our short trip to Edinbugh to show a friend the city. We were met by Ian who welcomed us, showed us our rooms and gave us all the information that we needed to get a bus into Edinburgh. Kew House is situated very close to the bus route both... More

We just spent a wonderful 4 nights in Edinburgh and the Kew House was a perfect base. We were greeted by Allan, who made us feel welcome and orientated us to our surroundings, tips for getting about, eating recommendations and tours booked all attended to with great efficiency. A good selection of delicious breakfasts were available and served with good... More

This is a terrific place----the room was larger than expected, it is very quiet, and the cook to order breakfast was super. The airport and city buses stop almost at the door which makes getting either downtown or the airport very easy. There also a number of good places to eat within 15 minutes walking distance which is really nice... More

My wife and I visited Kew House along time ago when we first met and we loved it so much we decided to spend our 1st wedding anniversary there last week. It's just the right distance out of the city centre for me. The bedrooms are immaculate and the breakfast is great. Ian gave us loads of advice on our... More

We spent the last two nights of our scotland trip in Kew House. We got a warm, friendly welcome and everything we needed to know was well explained by the host Ian. The breakfast was the best we had in Scotland, the beds were so comfortable and also the best we had, the rooms were well equiped, nice and clean.... More

One of the highlights of my UK trip was two nights in Scotland. Kew House was in a great location . The hosts Ian and Allan were very friendly and helpful. The bed was DIVINE.

Your kind comments are much appreciated. We certainly enjoyed chatting to you about Brisbane. So glad the beds were appreciated, I figure that a bed and breakfast that can't give a good night's sleep and a decent breakfast is missing on the two things it advertises in the title so it's good we got them right. I hope the rest... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights in Edinburgh at the end of a 6 week self drive tour of England and Scotland. Travelling with large international suitcases we booked the large family room so we had lots of room to sort ourselves (+ luggage) out and that room was perfect for us. The property is simply immaculate, with a... More

We were so happy to book Kew House. Great hosts and they even gave us a voucher for our restaurant!! Every detail is attended to and the house is scrupulously clean. The little touches made it a real treat. Freshly cooked breakfast, made to order and you can go healthy or hearty - the latter for us! We know Edinburgh... More
