This small 6 bedroomed guest house looks after its guests superbly. From the welcoming carafe of wine and chocolates on the pillow to the wide choice of breakfasts the friendly proprietors have thought of everything. Its near the Zoo and Murrayfield and there is a frequent bus service into to the city centre (10 minutes away) and to the airport...

My personal experience makes me rate Kew House as a five-star guest house. I was travelling alone, so I booked a single room. It was a small room (please notice this, just in case it's an issue for you), but truly comfortable and decorated in order to make the most of its space. Every staff member was beyond my expectations,...

We had an exceptional stay at Kew House! This is a fabulous comfortable property conveniently located on a major bus line, also easily accessible from the airport. We often chose to walk to town in twenty-five minutes or so. The room was quiet and luxurious, with a comfy bed! The best part of this experience was the friendliness and helpfulness...

Thanks Michael, it was a pleasure having you stay with us. I appreciate particularly the comments on the beds as we take a lot of time in choosing them. As someone who suffers from back problems on the wrong type of bed, we always make sure ours are of the highest standard. It is obvious to me that the two...

It was a pleasure to stay at the Kew House. The hosts are very welcoming, informative, helpful, and entertaining. Breakfast was delicious, offered many choices, and was a great way to start the day. The rooms were well appointed, including fresh flowers, chocolates, and bottled water. Great location, easy to get to city center and airport.

Thanks for your review and kind words about Kew House. I appreciate your comments on location as it is useful to be able to walk a short distance only to dine if you have spent the day doing the shops and attractions. I'll pass the breakfast compliments to Alan Ian

Kew has been in business for many years and it shows, with gracious help and find knowledge of what we, first time visitors to Scotland, needed not only for Edinburgh but the entire trip through Scotland.

Thanks for your review and we enjoyed looking after you. I suppose having been here for 23 years does give us some kind of credibility when we see how many B&B's have come and gone around us in that time. To us, the secret is to advertise honestly and provide what you advertise. We try to do both and it...
