Thank you for your review of Kew House. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments on our car park. Edinburgh, as you know, is not the best city to drive around or try to find parking so I'm glad you found the parking useful. Hopefully we'll see you again some time.

Ian

Stayed recently for two nights: great location, very quiet, convenient car park, excellent food, and helpful hosts. The rooms and the beds were very nice. Space in our well-designed bathroom was a bit tight (mind the heated towel rack) but that's understandable when solid, older buildings are converted to ensuites.

Short notice stay here on business for just one night. Very friendly welcome, super efficient and the room was extremely comfortable - I was given a double even though I had only booked (and paid for) a single
Super location - approx 5 mins walk from Edinburgh haymarket.
Delicious breakfast, cooked to order with no delay.

HIghly recommended

We stayed here for a couple of nights to explore the city. The B&B is well situated on three main bus routes into the city centre, there are several decent restaurants within 15 minutes walk from the premises.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful and we were made to feel at home straight away, they were always available should help be needed about anything to do with Edinburgh. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The house is situated on the main A8 route into the city so there is some traffic but with the secondary double glazing the noise was barely perceptible.
Breakfast was served in the small dining room and the menu was varied with the usual offerings alongside some dishes you don't normally get offered, something for everyone.
Overall a very pleasant stay and I would certainly recommend it.

We stayed at Kew House for 3 nights in early May and could not fault it. Ian went out of his way to help, the rooms had everything we needed and the choice at breakfast was outstanding. Highly recommended.

This is a great small guest house and is really well presented and cared for meticulously by it's owners. I was allowed to park to the rear of the property in a secure car park, they were kind enough to get me some hot water to clean off some bird poo of my car. They offered help with my bag to the room. Wonderful hosts who knew how and when to help.

The room itself was a little small but had everything I would need - including the nice touch of some chocolate and some sherry as well as compliamentary water. The bathroom was compact and incredibly clean. Great toileteries all oozed quality. Bed clothes of great quality and ensured a lovely nights sleep as well as the seriously comfy bed.

TV had loads of channels and WiFi was strong signal.

Breakfast was the best breakfast I've ever had in Edinburgh. The menu here for breakfast is varied and you will be spoilt for choice. Everything is cooked fresh to order the scrambled eggs are extremely good. Why would you want to eat sweaty eggs from a hotel buffet when you can have this? Will I be back..........of course..........Recomended very highly a must if you're staying in Edinburgh.

I'm so glad you enjoyed staying with us and we appreciate the comments on our breakfast. With so many hotels making breakfast an extra these days we take great pride in the quality of our ingredients and our ability to cook food to order. After all when it says "bed and breakfast" then that's exactly what you should get.

We are always looking for new things to add to the traditional and it's good to know out efforts are appreciated.
