We stayed here with four people (family) occupying two rooms for just one night. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. They took a genuine interest in ensuring we were pleased and our needs were met, even though we were just there for one night. We walked into town once when we arrived and they called a taxi for us... More

Kew House suited us perfectly. It is just 20 minutes from the airport with frequent buses for the short trip to the city centre. The hotel is beautifully presented, spotlessly clean with a real attention to detail. Our room had everything you could need for a stay plus a welcome tray with a decanter of sherry, chocolates and cake! The... More

I recently returned from a lovely stay at Kew House. It is well appointed, provides a very warm welcome from the proprietors and excellent breakfasts. It is well located with regular buses to central Edinburgh.

We stayed at the Kew House for the weekend while we visited the Fringe in Edinburgh. We had a family room which we shared with our 18 year old son. The room was lovely and clean with plenty of space. The beds were really comfortable. We had a fridge with complimentary water, chocolates and even a decanter of sherry. The... More

everything deserved the 5 * rating: host, room, superb breakfast, and some great extras: free wifi, sherry, chocolates and bottled water with a fridge in our room. We felt very comfortable and welcome. Hi-lites of Edinburth within walking distance (weather permitting, hahaha), bus stop just in front of Kew House. We absolutely can recommed it! Thank you, Ian and Alan

Ian and Alan are a first class duo when it comes to providing hospitality! They have thought of every detail from a delicious breakfast to lovely bath amenities to bus schedules to a spot of sherry in your room after a long day of touring. Your room is a restful haven after hours of walking Edinburgh's hills. Kudos for the... More

This place is top notch! It's a beautiful location with very modern rooms. It is right in front of the bus stops and Ian will advise you as to which buses to use to get to your spot. They also have parking and you can plan ahead with Ian if you need to get your car out at any time.... More

I am very grateful for the comments on your stay here at Kew House. It's not until you arrive in Edinburgh, you realise how valuable parking is if you have a car with you and what was once just a handy space at the rear when guests couldn't find a space on the street has now become a valuable commodity...
