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. The above views confirm that you did and I'm happy that was the case. No doubt your grand daughter will expect you to come back to Edinburgh...

My personal experience makes me rate Kew House as a five-star guest house. I was travelling alone, so I booked a single room. It was a small room (please notice this, just in case it's an issue for you), but truly comfortable and decorated in order to make the most of its space. Every staff member was beyond my expectations,...

We had an exceptional stay at Kew House! This is a fabulous comfortable property conveniently located on a major bus line, also easily accessible from the airport.

It was a pleasure to stay at the Kew House. The hosts are very welcoming, informative, helpful, and entertaining. Breakfast was delicious, offered many choices, and was a great way to start the day. The rooms were well appointed, including fresh flowers, chocolates, and bottled water. Great location, easy to get to city center and airport.

Thanks for your review and kind words about Kew House. I appreciate your comments on location as it is useful to be able to walk a short distance only to dine if you have spent the day doing the shops and attractions. I'll pass the breakfast compliments to Alan Ian
