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. The quality of the rooms and service offered by Ian and Alan is impeccable (chocolates, sherry available in your room which is appreciated after a long drive). I have...

Just returned from a long weekend in Edinburgh, Kew House being our choice of accommodation and I have never stayed in such a fantastic place. Firstly, Ian and Alan are the most friendly, hospitable and welcoming people I have ever met; no request is too much for them no matter how big or small. You walk in and it instantly...

I've always had an image of guest houses as sad, tired and complete with lots of nick nacks and polyester sheets; populated by lots of Mrs McShoogle landladies who are overbearing and nosy (following on from a dire experience back in the late 80's). However I'm delighted to report that Kew House has altered my mindset completely. Fresh, clean, welcoming...

We stayed having booked based on tripadvisor ratings, and that Kew House has secure (gated) parking. It really is a beautiful building, only 15 mins walk from the town centre, a journey that can be broken in a number of nice pubs along the way. A short stroll from Murrayfield too. We were greeed like long lost relatives, and given...

Comfy beds, immaculate and quiet room, clean, wonderful breakfast and very hospitable hosts Ian & Alan. It takes only a 15 minute Walk to Princes Street, so location wise it's good too. I would recommend this B&B over any 5* hotel!

From the moment we arrived we had a wonderful time. Our hosts were very friendly and we were truly impressed by the service. Decoration throughout the hotel was immaculate. Our room felt warm, comfortable and welcoming and was spotlessly clean. We relaxed over a sherry and some chocolates which were a welcome find in our room. Our breakfast was excellent...

I stayed at the Kew House while traveling on business and they made our trip as easy and stress free as possible. They went the extra mile by providing wonderful restaurant suggestions, arranging pick up for a FedEx shipment, and setting up an early breakfast so we could eat before catching a morning flight.
