A wonderful guest house, which made our trip to Edinburgh a really lovely experience. Friendly, super helpful, lovely environment and the most fantastic breakfasts. Have returned twice with friends since our original stay. Hoping to be back again this year!

We've stayed at Kingsway twice now, once in the summer of 2014 and once for New Year's/Hogmanay 2017. Both stays were great, with comfortable rooms, nice bathrooms, a great breakfast room, really nice breakfast food and wonderful hosts, Lizzie and Gary. They are great people running a great B&B. We obviously have gone back, and I wouldn't hesitate to return...

Good location, town centre within walking distance or plenty of buses a short walk away. Very friendly and helpful. Lovely plentiful breakfast, with a special offered every day to choose from. Our room was clean and comfortable, very quiet. Good en suite facilities. Lots of options locally to eat in the evening.
