Per reviews on Tripadvisor and listings in the Rick Steve's travel guide, my wife and I stayed at Kingsway Guesthouse for a long weekend. The breakfast was one of the best that we've had at a B&B and the room had all the amenities that one would need. Access to the old town is about a 10 minute bus ride...

Just returned from a great long weekend in Edinburgh. My wife and I decided to book a weekend away for a post-Christmas break. This was our first trip to Edinburgh and we were not disappointed. I have stayed in plusher hotels and our room was a little on the small side however it was clean, comfortable and the breakfasts were...

We've stayed at Kingsway twice now, once in the summer of 2014 and once for New Year's/Hogmanay 2017. Both stays were great, with comfortable rooms, nice bathrooms, a great breakfast room, really nice breakfast food and wonderful hosts, Lizzie and Gary. They are great people running a great B&B. We obviously have gone back, and I wouldn't hesitate to return...

Kingsway Guest House offers excellent value for money in our opinion and we were very happy to have stayed here. You get so much more for your money than most competitors and to get anything better you would be paying significantly more. Location: 1 mile south of centre on quiet side street. So walk for 20 minutes or get a...
