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,... More

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.

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.

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.

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.
