Excellent value for money. Very welcoming and great breakfasts. Room was spotless and spacious. Found a great choice of restaurants within easy walk of this B&B.

Stayed here just after the snow in Dec 2010. Lovely & clean, room spacious with tv, nice breakfast with choice. Location was 20 minute walk into town, but about 1 minute from the main road with regular busses into town and Arthurs foot was about ten minutes walk. A few pubs / restaurants walking distance if you didnt want to venture into the centre. Owners were really friendly and imformative, great hosts. Would recommend people to stay here. I had looked around for ages trying to find somewhere within budget that was nice and finding this place was very lucky!

From the get go our stay at the Kingsway House was awesome! We got in quite late due to a snow storm but Gary was just as helpful as ever even given the late hour. He provided us with tips on where to go, where to eat and where to drink! The rooms are impeccably clean, and really nicely furnished. Our four person room was really spacious which was really really nice as most rooms we had visited within the U.K were quite small. Breakfast was so so good, and filling out the personalized breakfast forms at night made us feel taken care of. We all loved our stay and our gracious hosts made the trip very enjoyable, we'd visit the Kingsway again and again!

This place is amazing. The rooms, even if they are small, are very clean and quiet, the perfect place to stay in Edinburgh: the Kingsway is just a mile from Royal Mile and near to a lot of restaurants and pubs and my boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. Lizzie and Gary, the owners of the B&B, are so nice that is impossible not to love this place, they are always helpful, nice and kind. The breakfast is always abundant and very very good. I've never been better in an hotel or in a B&B and the price is absolutely competitive. I just want to say that the Kingsway is the perfect place to visit Edinburgh if you want to stay with nice people that help you for every need, from the moment you wake up 'til the moment you go to bed.

If you are looking for a comfortable room and a well serviced breakfast this is the B&B to book! Situated in a quiet street (which benefits your nights rest after a full day in Edinburgh) on a walking distance of approximately 30 minutes (bus around the corner: 10 minutes) from the city centre. We very much enjoyed the walking trips to the city centre because of the various routes you could take and see some of Edinburgh. We never took the bus.

In short: we highly recommend this B&B!
