Stayed here for 2 nights in March and had a wonderful time. The owners were great and a wealth of knowledge. Told us about places to eat, what to see, what buses to take and were able to make a few phone calls for us. The room was the perfect size. We were in room 4. Bathroom was small, but...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I visited Edinburgh on a rather hurried conference trip, but I'm so glad I found Kew House. The room—and of course the whole B&B—was immaculately presented, and it was a real pleasure to return here at the end of a busy day. When the rain cleared, I even had a lovely view of the hills in the distance (quite a...

We were greeted warmly and our family room was perfect for the two of us plus our teenage daughter. We are walkers, and appreciated the walkability to Princes Street and the Royal Mile. The location is convenient but also quieter than right in the downtown area. We enjoyed dinner at the Indian restaurant right up the street. And, we liked...

Third time of staying here and each time the quality, comfort and care have been of an extremely high standard every single time. Love this place and the hosts. The location was perfect for us to be able to park our car and leave it for our three night stay so we could walk everywhere. Kew House is ideally located...

My friends and i were in town for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. Ian and Alan AND Kew House helped make it the best trip ever. Our rooms were comfortable, inviting, and beautiful; breakfast was tasty; the sitting room became our gathering place to share our yarn and adventures. We met two other folks in town for the EYF, and the...

Where do I start with the positives....gorgeous room with lovely high ceilings. Really comfy bed, very tasteful decor and a high attention to detail. Everything you could possibly want was provided down to the very kind welcome gift of Thorntons chocolates in your room. There was a little fridge in the room and because I had to leave very early...

A very enjoyable weekend with our hosts at Kew House. We were made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble, they certainly went the extra mile. A short walk took us to a selection of restaurants. I cannot wait to return . Thank you both for taking good care of us!

It was a great pleasure to meet you on your trip North for the Scotland versus Wales Rugby International even if the result was not what you would have wanted. We genuinely enjoyed looking after you and hope you will keep us in mind for the next trip to Murrayfield. Ian

Given Kew House is on a main road, we asked for and got a quiet room at the rear of the house. Although compact, the room was very comfortable and perfectly suited our requirements for the 3-night stay. Car parking is a little tight, especially during the week, but Ian and Alan went out of their way to ensure it...

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our wee car park can be quite tight but it has become more valuable as parking around us becomes more expensive and in our many years here we have always been able to park all guests cars. Thanks for your comments on breakfast, it is much appreciated. Ian

We were staying in Edinburgh for both Business and Pleasure, we arrived late in the evening and were made to feel very welcome. I had an early start in the morning, leaving before the breakfast sitting, but Ian insisted on preparing me a continental breakfast so I had something to start the day with. My wife was fortunate to spend...

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad we were able to offer you something to eat before your early start each day and at least your wife was able to join us in the dining room each morning. I appreciate you taking the time you did to review us and we hope to see you again Ian
