We booked accommodation at Kew House, Edinburgh for our first six nations match on 4th February 2017 and first impressions were very positive. This 5* Gold rated B+B is ideally situated on Kew Terrace and is just a short walk, approximately 10 minutes, from Murrayfield Rugby Stadium. With bus stops literally on the doorstep public transport to this venue is...

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...

'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...

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.

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.

So many 5star appreciations for Kew House. So booking this B&B should be possible with the eyes closed. And I can confirm this.

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...
