Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend New Years with my girlfriend. Very warm and friendly welcome from Dorothy and a genuinely nice guest house to stay in. Will undoubtedly come back during the next trip up to Scotland!

The owners, Dorothy & Richard, make this B&B special. Parking is difficult in the area but Dorothy kept watch and shouted to me when a spot opened. Our room was a bit tight but very clean and comfortable. The dining room is beautiful and the breakfasts excellent. The neighborhood is very pleasant and there is good access for a quick... More

We spent a week here and really enjoyed it. Dorothy is friendly, helpful, and knows the area well. Kenzie House is a short bus trip or inexpensive cab ride from the Royal Mile. Breakfast was good, and the WiFi was excellent.

My husband and my aunt and uncle stayed here for two nights after traveling from York. Dorothy was very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms were surprisingly large as we had an en suite bathroom. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms very clean. Turn in your breakfast orders at night for Dorothy to cook a lovely meal in the morning! The four... More

We stayed here during our time in Edinburgh. It's in a good location, close to the bus stops to get into town, and not too far for dining. Dorothy was very friendly and served an excellent breakfast in the morning. I would stay here again

Our room was large and the bathroom was large also. The room and bathroom were very clean. We had a beautiful view of Arthur's Seat from our window. The breakfasts were very good. Dorothy went out of her way taking messages from my friend from Glasgow. We were close to bus service to travel to Edinburgh but we were close... More

We were at the Kenvie House for five days and enjoyed it very much. Dorothy couldn't have been any nicer and accommodating for us. She made sure we knew how to catch the bus and which ones would take us where we needed to go. She caught us a taxi on our last day to get to the airport and... More

This is a comfortable, pleasant, and well-maintained house. The B&B is one flight of steps up from the ground level. Some rooms are up a further flight of steps. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean, had adequate space, and were very comfortable for use. Sleeping was delightful in this quiet neighborhood. The breakfast room was pleasant and bright. The...

Kenvie is one of the best B and B's we've ever stayed in. Great room , great location with the bus stop 50m away ( make sure you get an all day ticket for 3.90GBP). The breakfast is fantastic with a varied menu and cooked to order. The Laird's breakfast is my pick! Dorothy is very helpful and full of... More

The Kenvie was absolutely spotless. We were able to choose what we would like for breakfast from a printed menu given to us the night before. There were many options to choose from. The fresh fruit bowl was both beautiful and tastey. It is a short walk to the bus to the Royal Mile and the Castle. There are good... More
