“Toutes est impeccable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Great hospitality from Ian and his team, always ready to assist in all ways.
Room very clean, comfortable and cosy, it was home away from home. Very good wifi connections in room and hotel.
Well situated. The bus shuttle from the airport (Airport Link100) stops just in front of the hotel. Haymarket tram stop is just 5 mins walk to hotel. Quick and easy access (15-20mins) to city center (old Town and New Town). Lots of eating places in the vicinity.

This is the top of the tops of my hotel list.

I have stayed in a number of B&Bs and Hotels in Edinburgh and Kew House is by far the best.
Standards are very high. The rooms are up-to-date and spotless. The wireless is excellent.
The service is fantastic.
Plus it's very handy for the airport bus and only about 5 mins walk from Haymarket Station.
I hate recommending it, as I want to stay there next time I am back in Edinburgh and don't want to see it sold out ;-)
Thanks again... Fred

Yet another great experience at Kew House. We cannot rate this accommodation highly enough. We won't stay anywhere else in Edingburgh. This is our forth visit. Ian and Allan are the perfect hosts. Look no further than Kew House when planning your trip to Edinburgh. You will not be disappointed.
Joy and Maurice.

We loved and enjoyed our stay at the Kew House - definitely recommend it! The hosts at Kew House (Ian & Allan) were very welcoming and guided us really well so we could get around the city and sightseeing areas with ease.
We spent 2 nights in Kew House and absolutely loved it! The room was very comfortable, clean and had all the necessary amenities. The complimentary sherry and chocolates were most appreciated and enjoyed :)!
The breakfast was delicious with a good number of choices (including for vegetarians).
The hotel is conveniently located - if you enjoy walking you can reach Princes Street (main shopping area) in 15-20 minutes, or take a bus from the stand just across the road.
Wish we could have stayed for a few more nights!

We have worked out that we have been coming to Kew House for 10 years and it's still our favourite place to stay; not just because Ian is a fabulous host and Alan is a wonderful cook but also the B&B is always fresh and spotlessly clean. Standards are kept very high and that is no mean feat over the years.Kew is the ideal location as it's about a mile from Princes Street, the bus stops just seconds away, though we always choose to walk in..as the beauty of Edinburgh is best explored on foot.

As always it is a pleasure to see you on your regular visits to Edinburgh. I'm glad the city still has lots of things to keep you interested and, of course, I'm glad we still rank as your favourite! Hopefully we can do it all again next Summer!

We spent two nights at Kew House. Our room was comfortable, breakfast was good, parking available on site and the bus near the doorstep took ran regularly into the area of town where the Castle and tourist attractions are located. There was also a bus to the airport just steps away from the house as well. The hosts, Allan and Ian, were friendly and helpful. We are two mature women and don't recommend the walk into town. Hills to climb and took us 30 minutes. Save your walking for the Royal Mile!

We stayed in Kew house for just one night (unfortunately) during our short trip to Edinbugh to show a friend the city. We were met by Ian who welcomed us, showed us our rooms and gave us all the information that we needed to get a bus into Edinburgh. Kew House is situated very close to the bus route both to the airport and the city. Ian was also able to re commend places for dinner and had great knowledge of lots of different places. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and absolutely immaculate. I'm a very fussy person and this impressed me so much!! Very comfortable beds with choice of duvet or blankets, bottled water in a small fridge in the room, chocolates, toiletries and even sample sized perfume. The breakfast was amazing with so much to choose from and cooked to order. Really everything was the last word and the hosts couldn't have done any more for us. They even kept our bags after check out to save us carrying them round Edinburgh on our last morning. As they are on the bus route to the airport it was effortless to simply call back for them. All in all I couldn't recommend Kew House highly enough! It's the perfect base with perfect hosts to explore Edinburgh. Thank you so much.
