If anyone was travelling to Edinburgh I would highly recommend Kingsway Guest house. Everything was absolutely lovely. The rooms were very nice and clean. The decoration was lovely. It is in a perfect location with excellent transport links. Breakfast was lovely, I didn't want a full breakfast but I was happily made scrambled egg on toast instead. Lizzie and Gary...

Amazing place to stay-I can't recommend Kingsway enough! We were instantly greeted by the bubbly Lizzie who gave us written info on the area and later on gave us advice about when/where to get tickets for tours and the castle etc. Beautiful place, fab breakfast, off road parking available (rare to find in a location such as this!) and wonderful...

We stayed for two nights. Very nice and helpful staff and good atmosphere. The breakfast was excellent, I really like the way you could put a checkmark on what they will cook extra for you. Would definately go here again!

The guest house itself was beautiful and our room was...

This is the second time we have stayed at Kingsway and it did not disappoint. Once again we had a beautiful, clean, comfortable and well equipped room. Lizzie made us feel most welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely breakfast each morning to set us up for the day. We can thoroughly recommend Kingsway. It is...

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.

From the minute we entered we were made to feel very welcome with Lizzie giving us a wealth of information to make the most of our visit. There is private parking and we never used the car for...
