The Royal Mile is just a 20 minute walk from here, and a regular bus service is within walking distance of the guesthouse. The...

I spent a lot of time researching this guest house before I booked it and have to say it was worth every penny (and more). Lizzie and Gary were so friendly and could not do enough for us.

Per reviews on Tripadvisor and listings in the Rick Steve's travel guide, my wife and I stayed at Kingsway Guesthouse for a long weekend. The breakfast was one of the best that we've had at a B&B and the room had all the amenities that one would need. Access to the old town is about a 10 minute bus ride...

Just returned from a great long weekend in Edinburgh. My wife and I decided to book a weekend away for a post-Christmas break. This was our first trip to Edinburgh and we were not disappointed. I have stayed in plusher hotels and our room was a little on the small side however it was clean, comfortable and the breakfasts were...

We stayed one night this summer on our trip to the highlands, the house was very nice and clean, free parking, at that time we rented a car, but we didn’t see much of Edinburgh. We decide to go back for Hogmanay and we book on their site for four days. The house is 25 minute of nice walk to...
