Wonderful stay at Kew House. The hosts, Ian and Allan, were both incredibly warm and helpful, with great tips about visiting the city and the New Years celebrations. The location is excellent - it is within walking distance from city center and there are bus stops right in front of the house itself. It's also incredibly easy to get to...

Thank you for your review and I hope you are getting re-used to the warmth of LA after 6 days in Edinburgh. It was a great pleasure looking after you and I am so glad you had a great time here over New Year. Best wishes from us both Ian and Alan

'Kew House' was an amazing house to visit. Both Ian and Allan were the most gracious hosts! Our room was very spacious, quiet and most impressive it was immaculately clean. We also loved all the little extra goodies that were left out for us each day. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Kew House is the best find and is close to...

Thanks to you both. There was a great feeling over the New Year period both around Kew House and in the city so I am glad you had a good time here. We enjoyed looking after you and your brother and his wife who have been with us before. Alan and I are humbled by the kind comments you both...

We came for the 3 nights, and thank you to the previous reviewers as they were spot on! This is a real find, and worth staying, breakfast was fabulous and even was able to park the car safely too. Book it now! Easy to get in to the City, by bus or walking and if you are going sight seeing...

Thank you for those positive comments on your Kew House stay and I am glad you appreciated the parking. Our car park has become more valuable over the years as driving and parking in Edinburgh, like many other cities, has become more difficult (and expensive). A free parking bay for those who need it, is invaluable. With so many trains...

After a "bumpy" start we arrived late at Kew House to a very warm welcome. The room was excellent as were the facilities and "extra touches" and breakfast was great. Would definitely visit again if in that part of the world.

ianEdinburgh, Owner at Kew House, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. I am glad that despite your delayed arrival you still managed to have a great time in Edinburgh. I appreciate your kind comments on Kew House. This way, it means you still have much more to see so hopefully we will see you again. Ian

We recently stayed in the apartment for three nights. I made the booking based on endless 5 star reviews of Kew House and we weren't disappointed. A warm welcome from Ian, who provided plenty of local info. The apartment was spotlessly clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you would reasonably expect to need during the course of a three night...

Thanks for sharing your experiences in our apartment. I know some guests are wary of taking an apartment but we try hard to make it feel just a welcoming as the guest accommodation at Kew House. With it being so close it means we are always on hand with help and information. I appreciate your kind comments on our service...

It was a real pleasure to have you and your mum come and stay with us. I'm glad the ground floor twin room worked well for you and we were particularly flattered that you remembered us from your last visit all those years ago. Your mum was amazingly enthusiastic about her stay and it was wonderful that you managed to...

So many 5star appreciations for Kew House. So booking this B&B should be possible with the eyes closed. And I can confirm this. Everything what has been said before me I can confirm: very friendly helpful people, spotless clean, interior nicely decorated with very good taste, good quality bed, silent at night, perfect breakfast, at walking distance from the centre,...

Thank you for your comments and we genuinely enjoyed having you stay with us and our conversations each morning during breakfast. I appreciate your kind recommendations for others to come and stay and I hope you will too in the future. Ian

Kew House was lovely. Really nice room on ground floor, modern & very tastefully furnished. Little welcome of sherry & truffles. Very comfy bed. Breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. Wonderful hosts - they really could not have been more friendly and helpful. Was spending a few days to meet my old school friend as it was 50 years ago...

Thanks to you for your comments on our apartment. After your enjoyable stay within the guest house last time I was interested in whether you would have as much pleasure from the apartment.
