Kenvie Guest House
Ranked #222 of 395 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 September 2015

my room overlooked Arthur's Seat - I could lie in bed and watch the sun come up over Arthur's Seat. Can you get better than that?
Bed was really comfortable, so were pillows, hugely important to an elderly traveller.
Dorothy was very informative about local inns, bus services, and other tourist-type questions, and very pleasant and helpful.

Dorthy is delightful, helpful and always concerned about your visit in Edinburgh. The. Kenvie house is clean, well kept and a delightful place to stay. Hot water each day. A wonderful breakfast each morning, tea and coffee in the room. If you are visiting Edinburgh Dorothy steers you to the correct bus to get to the royal mile and castle.

Had a very nice stay. As other a have noted, there are a fair number of stairs. Dorothy is lovely. Her fruit bowl breakfast was incredible. One day we had to leave early for a tour so she left continental out for us which we really appreciated. Bathroom was very small and we had three people in the room so that was a bit challenging, but all in all very nice.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend New Years with my girlfriend.
Very warm and friendly welcome from Dorothy and a genuinely nice guest house to stay in. Will undoubtedly come back during the next trip up to Scotland!

The owners, Dorothy & Richard, make this B&B special. Parking is difficult in the area but Dorothy kept watch and shouted to me when a spot opened. Our room was a bit tight but very clean and comfortable. The dining room is beautiful and the breakfasts excellent. The neighborhood is very pleasant and there is good access for a quick bus ride to the Royal Mile as well as restaurants some blocks away.

Room Tip: There is a long set of stairs to get to the B&B itself so pack light.
