Kew House was a fantastic find. The place is immaculate and the breakfasts are wonderful and varied.....cooked to order- delicious! Although it is on a main road and we had a room at the front, there was minimal noise, thanks to effective secondary glazing.Our room was quite small but had everything one could need, including a fridge!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We enjoyed looking after you. Thanks also for your comments. I have to say I'm the one who loves a fridge in a room and that is why we have silent running fridges in all the rooms. Hopefully we'll see you again Ian More

Stayed here for 2 nights during Edinburgh Fringe. We were in room 6 which is downstairs next to the front door. Our host assured us that the window sound proofing meant we wouldn't hear traffic on the road outside, although it did not disturb our sleep there is some traffic noise so if you are a very sensitive sleeper.

Thanks for your review of Kew House and for the helpful detail. The problem with being in an "easy location for town centre" and " convenient for local buses, the airport and station," it usually means you are on a main road. I like to think the secondary glazing effectively cuts all but a quiet background noise and this seems... More

From the mints on the pillows to the fresh flowers to the bottled water in the mini in room refrigerator - no detail was left undone. Add a caring host and a chef that makes a fantastic breakfast and you have the five star rated Kew House. Our accommodation was spotless and located in a quiet residential setting. Our room... More

We were only staying in the city for 2 nights and this was a wonderful find. The room was well maintained although small and compact it was extremely comfortable and fresh.

Thanks for your review and comments on Kew House. I'm also glad the boiled egg was of a high enough standard and would like others to know we have slightly more than boiled eggs on the menu for breakfast! We hope to see you again Ian More

My wife and I finally made it to Scotland and were lucky enough to book the last room in the Kew House. We received a very warm welcome from Ian and a wealth of recommendations for what to see and bus schedules to support. Ian even found a fishing guide so I could get out while I was there.

We receive a very warm welcome from Ian on arrival and were given information about bus details. We were most obliged to access our room and leave our luggage on arrival and likewise vacate and collect our luggage, before departing from Haymarket Station. We also appreciated all the little extras in our room, such as good quality coffee, chocolates, white... More

Great place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. It’s a pleasant walk to City Centre. If you don’t want to walk the city bus stops just a few feet from the front door. Our room was spacious and it even had a refrigerator. Everything was spotlessly clean. Lots of delicious choices for breakfast. It wasn’t a set menu, instead you could... More

Thanks Kathleen. We try to make the breakfast as bespoke as possible and we appreciate many of our guests are travelling over a few different destinations and much as the "full Scottish breakfast" is enjoyable it is easy to tire of it after having it too many times.

Warm welcome on arrival from Ian. We stayed in the family room which gave us extra space. Very comfortable king sized bed and the fridge with complimentary water was a bonus.

Just completed an enjoyable stay at the Kew House, and can recommend for the right kind of visit. Since I was on a business trip, the hotel, while nice, was not suitable for my needs. The room was quite small, and lacked a dresser and a work table. Breakfast is served only from 8:00, although they were kind enough to... More
