Chose the hotel dunstane due to reviews, I felt it was overpriced considering its location. I would probably have chosen something else but it was clean and tidy ad the bus stopped outside which was easy to get around Edinburgh. The breakfast was ok not as good as some I have had. On our last day we had to leave... More

Our family of 2 adults & 3 teens booked the Dunstane Hotel based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Because we needed a triple-share room for the kids, our rooms were not in the main building, but in the `City' building across the road. This was not a problem for us at all but I can imagine this could be inconvenient for... More

I booked the Dunstane after researching on tripadvisor and although it was the most expensive place I have ever stayed at for $300 a night was really looking forward to experiencing a boutique hotel. The room was nice but we stayed in the house across from the hotel on a busy road. We could hear the traffic all night which... More

Staff is extraordinarily friendly. Free parking. Lovely building, well kept. We had a double bed, which was a bit snug for the two of us. No lift and no air conditioning. However, it was such a nice place otherwise that none of the initial drawbacks really bothered us. We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. I had... More

Stayed at the Dunstane City on our recent trip to Edinburgh. Small, quiet boutique hotel with a young, friendly staff. We were on the first floor, close to registration desk & heard little noise. Added bonus....the wonderful restaurant! Excellent breakfasts & delicious dinners! Try the lamb!!!!

I thought I was booking at the partner hotel across the street, but wasn't disappointed to find myself in the city hotel. Both buildings are lovely and the decor is very nice. My room was pretty, clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. It was also very quiet and peaceful. The hotel is very well situated, not quite in the hustle and bustle... More

We booked two rooms for four nights 27th-31st July 2014 at the Dunstane City Hotel. We had high expectations and on first impressions the hotel appeared to be very nice. However it went downhill very fast, as soon as we entered the building it was extremely hot but the staff member stated this was normal and that the rooms were... More

Really nice staff, lovely hotel, lovely room and nice food! I really enjoyed our stay there and i will stay there again if i'm in Edinburgh. It's really close to Princess Street and with the day tickets from lothian buses you can get back for a quick easy shower and back to town. What more is there to say? Just... More

The rooms in this hotel are beautiful - the decor is stunning and the rooms are large as are the bathrooms. The hotel is very comfortble to the point we did not want to leave our rooms. The only gripe I had, which is minor, is that there were two of us in the room in terms of the toiletaries,... More

hello there Thank you for your feedback, especially regarding breakfast. I did think we had laid it out clearly with the left hand side priced at £10.95 for Continental and the Right hand side at £13.95 for hot food. We dont price the dishes individually so as not to confuse the issue and you are welcome to order as much... More
