    The room was lovely, breakfast amazing and Lizzie and Gary really helpful. Next time I'll visit Edinburgh I'll definitely stay here! They provide you with details and suggestions for places to visit and restaurants/pubs where to eat, and you can't really go wrong.

    Kingway is a great place to stay, very clean and comfortable. The owners Gary and Lizzie are very welcoming and helpful. It is in a quiet location, yet close enough to the City and major attractions. The Royal Mile is just a 20 minute walk...More

    Hello, I'm coming from Canada to watch the World Cup of Rugby in 2015. I'm planning to visit Scotland for couple of days and I'll be coming from Leicester by train. My first question would be -> how close you are to a train station. Looking on line, Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh Old Town, Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castel and Inchcolm Abbey would be some items I would like to see. How easy is it by train\bus for travel and what else would be good to see. Thanks Clinton
