Overview

Your host and hostess. Ian and Heather, are local people well versed in the highlights of Edinburgh and the Lothians. They will be only to pleased to help you should you need some guidance in our fine city. The South side of the city. where we are located, is convenient for the best that our City has to provide. There are tours to the highlands on offer on a daily basis from here. We provide a non-smoking environment. In addition we have a self catering apartment.

For the golf lovers out there we are in a great place for you to spend some time relaxing on the Prestonfield Golf Course. the clubhouse is located just 650 metres / 0.4 miles to the West-South-West of here.

For the naturists we are also in a great location. Not much further is the fabulous green space the is Holyrood Park. A short walk will get you here and if feeling energetic you might want to venture a little further up the top of Arthur's Seat which is encompassed by the park. Astounding vista and photo opportunities abound up there.

We are easy to find especially for people who have made the good decision to come by train. The 2.25 kilometres or 1.4 miles distance is walked in about 30 minutes or so. To get to us, come out of the North Bridge exit of Waverly. Take a left turn and go across the bridge in a Southerly direction. Cross the Royal Mile and just keep on following the road. It will change its name many times but don't get to excited until you see this strait road being called Minto Street. Once you see this follow it along to the junction of Minto Street and East Mayfield. Just down this street on the right hand side is out front door. You are here, welcome!

Guest Reviews of Kingsway Guest House

Nicola‘s Rating: 5.0/5
Nicola travelling as: Group of adult friends

Overall: I have never been to Edinburgh before and I was really happy that I chose Kingsway Guest House. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was cooked to perfection, ideal before a walk up Arthurs Seat!!! The room was clean and airy, and with the location it was easy to get a good nights sleep. I would highly recommend staying here and if i visit Edinburgh again would definately be my first choice of accommodation! Thank you to Heather for your hospitality.

Bad Stuff: Nothing!

Good Stuff: Everything - Heather was lovely and friendly and made us all feel very welcome. The room was lovely and clean with plenty of room for 3 with a clean en-suite. The cooked breakfast was lovely as it was grilled and there was plenty of choice.

Anonymous‘s Rating: 2.9/5

Overall: Our room was very cold in the evenings although it was warm in the morning so the central heating worked but wasnt on. The main hall was very warm and inviting. The breakfast appeared to consist of a value ranges and wasn't very appetising. We were advised to visit a supposedly good shopping area but we found no shops on the road which was tiring and disappointing after the promise of sharing the host's wide experiance of the area. We did find a lovely restaurant within walking distance.

Bad Stuff: The room itself wasnt as nice as the description.

Good Stuff: The entrance hall and the welcome by the host was lovely.

Margaret‘s Rating: 4.6/5
Margaret travelling as: Group of adult friends

Overall: Our stay in a strange country and city was a marvelous experience due in large part to the fact that we had a warm and welcoming home to return to each day. Our hosts were very helpful and informative at all times. Should we find ourselves in Edinburgh again, the Kingsway Guesthouse would be our first choice for lodging.

Andrew‘s Rating: 4.0/5
Andrew travelling as: Family with older children

Overall: The hotel was easy to find and we got a lovely reception from the owner. Our room was a good size and very clean. Breakfast was good and there was parking which is essential for us. The hotel was not too far out of the city centre but far enough out to be nice and quiet in the evening.

Bad Stuff: There were CD players in the rooms and one of the guests in the room next to ours had it on quite loud.

Good Stuff: The room was lovely and clean and the owner was really friendly and made us very welcome
