I have stayed in many guest houses and b&bs throughout the UK and I must say that I truly enjoyed my stay here. Lizzie and Gary were excellent hosts. They were very helpful and responsive to my needs. The guesthouse was very clean and welcoming and well-decorated. The room was clean and organized with much attention to detail. The bed... More

Our stay at the Kingsway Guest House was a very enjoyable experience. The gracious hosts Lizzie and Gary have created a guest house that has a lovely ambience and simple Scottish charm. Our room was comfortable, light and cozy. Breakfast was outstanding. A variety of delicious fresh foods are available to choose from and are served in a welcoming dining... More

The location is ideal. A quiet residential environment; we loved that we were a short taxi ride from historic Edinburgh and within walking distance to local pubs. The rooms are small (as expected in Europe and the UK at this price point), but very clean. The bed and pillows were comfy, there was lots of light, and all the amenities... More

We stayed 3 nights, the highlight was the breakfast and the friendly hosts! Our room and bath were quite small. It did get dark enough at night, and was quiet. Basic coffee and tea in room, no bottles of water which we would have liked. We also would have liked provided loition and kleenex. The bed was good, the pillows... More

We spent three nights here and enjoyed them all. Breakfast was superb, one of the best we found. Close to bus stops into historic Edinburgh, and we found the perfect pub just down the street, called the Old Bell. We booked a bigger room than necessary because it was the only one left, so the price was a bit high.... More

Gary and Lizzie are great hosts, always with an idea for something to do and experience. They have the best business card ever, with a map on the back that was invaluable as we explored. They sent us to a local pub the first night, and we returned several times after. It was very clean and comfortable. Excellent location. You... More

Our Ryanair flight to Edinburgh was delayed by 5 hours, so arriving at Kingsway at 5am and finding a clean and comfortable en-suite bedroom was bliss. Needless to say, we were late for breakfast, but Gary still welcomed us with his calm smile. Lizzie is very energetic in the morning :) She loves to chat with the guests and also... More

We stayed here over the weekend of the Edinburgh marathon and had a lovely stay. The B&B is approx 1.5 miles outside the city centre, but there are loads of buses that will get you into Princes Street. It is a comfy B&B, with the highlight being the cooked breakfasts. The breakfasts are individually prepared and they have daily specials... More

We thought Kingsway was a really nice place to stay. Lizzie was lovely and very helpful with local information, places to eat etc. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable and the breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. Only one small point to mention - room service is carried out while guests are at breakfast, and not once they have left... More
