Ian and Allen were tremendous hosts. The accomodations were first cabin. The breakfasts were all delicious. The conversation was priceless and outstripped any other B&B ever. True gentlemen and gracious with their recommendations of travel routes, restaurants and sites to see! If ever I return to Edinburgh, I will be staying here!!!! Thanks again . Jim H.

Welcoming and extremely good accomodation in a part of the city that is easy walking distance from the city centre. Superb breakfast with a range of options that are all served to the highest of standards. In short we'll use it again and recommend it to all our family and friends.

We stayed at the Kew house for 2 days with our two sons aged 10 and 6 yrs old. Our stay was wonderful and very comfortable. Our host Ian was very helpful and accomodating. Gave us lots of good tips for things to do with the boys. Breakfast (and acommpanying conversations with Ian) was great! Highly recommend the Kew House...

We went there for a 4 days´ trip. We stayed in the same hotel and it was excellent: service, clean, delicious breakfast. 20 minutes walk to the city centre but it is near to the airport and you can take several buses in front of the door. Quiet area but near to the main attractions and restaurants. Totally recommend it.

Overall I had a fantastic stay at Kew House. I was warmly welcomed having phoned ahead after my sat nav took me the wrong way and helpfully directed to the property and shown to the private parking area. I was greeted and showed to a lovely double room complete with delicious chocolates upon arrival and a lovely selection of toiletries....

Just had another wonderful stay here. Everything is perfect with cleaniness and comfort to the fore. Breakfast is first class with plenty of choice and sets you up for the day. Ian and Allan are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Not the cheapest of establishments but well worth the cost. Excellent location 5 minutes from...

Thank you for your kind words about ourselves and Kew House. We enjoyed having you stay with us again even if the result at Murrayfield was disappointing. I would also like to thank all the recent reviewers for taking the time to comment so favourably on their stay at Kew House. I wouldn't like them to think because we don't...

This was our 2nd stay at Kew House - I doubt we would want to go to Edinburgh unless we could stay here. It is simply excellent with top quality service, spotless rooms and a calming atmosphere abounds. A great place to stay for the Rugby just a few mins walk to Murrayfield and a short bus ride into the...

We stayed here several years ago, and while traveling through England & Scotland over 19 days this was by FAR our best stopover. Parking off street for our rental car, the warm greeting from Ian & Alan made us feel instantly at home. They were generous with their meals and the advice about public transportation and must see things was...

I have been staying at Kew House for something like 14 years on and off. The accommodation is of the highest standard and I state this with vast experience and confidence.
