Kingsway Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2010

We have stayed at Kingsway a couple of times when visiting our daughter at Uni. Very convenient, very welcoming and overall always an enjoyable stay. The breakfast is as big or small as you wish, and always well cooked with a friendly smile to greet you in the morning. Lizzie and Gary are happy to suggest places to visit and know Edinburgh well and are always interested in your destinations. All in all, a well run guest house, with comfortable rooms, very pleasant surroundings and we will return!

Very friendly hosts, made us feel at home from beginning to end. Excellent choice for breakfast. Good advice given for things to see and do which are off the beaten track. Loved the top 10 recommendations. Will definetely stay there again on our next visit to Edinburgh. All in all a perfect stay.

The management - Lizzie and Gary - were incredible! They gave us tips for touring around Edinburgh, tracked down tickets for a show for us and even set-out a quick take-away breakfast for us when we had to leave before 6am. Our only complaint is that we couldn't have stayed longer!
The room was clean, quaint and quiet.
The B&B is close enough to easily walk to the Royal Mile and their suggestion to take lunch at The Reverie was a great one.
For our next trip to Edinburgh we won't be looking to stay anywhere else.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Nice rooms and great breakfast. Gary and Lizzie were attentive to our needs and always had some good tips for us. Appreciated their flexibility when we had to change our plans slightly regarding our stay.
