Five-diamond Edinburgh B&B seeks new owners

An award-winning guesthouse in one of Edinburgh's most sought-after locations is now on the market.

Kew House is located on the A8 less than one mile (or 15 minutes' walk) from Princes Street and close to Haymarket railway stations, Murrayfield rugby stadium and the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

Built in 1860, the Grade C-listed building forms the end property in a Victorian terrace.

As well as five AA diamonds, the business has a Scottish Tourist Board four-star, small-hotel rating and has won a Sparkling Diamond award for cleanliness and a Warm Welcome award for hospitality.

Kew House has an international reputation and appears in a number of overseas guides such as Fodors, the AA Best B+B, and Michelin.

It offers six modern en-suite bedrooms to sleep 12 guests (including three doubles, one twin, one family, and one single).

Facilities include a dining room, a residents' lounge with a computer terminal and a Portuguese limestone living flame fireplace, a patio garden, and parking space.

Also for sale is an adjacent villa that comprises the two-bedroom owners' accommodation with bathroom, lounge, kitchen, front and rear gardens, and parking.

The Edinburgh office of Colliers Robert Barry is seeking offers in excess of £850,000 for the freehold on Kew House. The price tag on the house is £169,500.
