We stayed at the dunstane city hotel for 2 nights. We were a bit unsure when we first booked in because we were sent across the main road from the reception but when we got to our rooms on the ground floor we found them to be very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The staff were superb, very friendly and... More

I am torn with this hotel, my partner booked this hotel as a Christmas gift to me and he had booked the Dunstane HOUSE hotel however upon arrival we were sent across the road to the Dunstane City, maybe my partner was mixed up but the booking did say Dunstane house. Anyway... The receptionist at the City hotel was friendly... More

Loved the location and value of the Dunstane - 10 minute walk to the city, perhaps 25 minutes to Edinburgh Castle. Also on bus lines. Service was perfect and the bar and restaurant were good. After some juggling with the front desk, I was assigned comfortable room. Because the Dunstane is an older hotel, made up of two very different... More

I found this hotel surfing the web, and it turned out to be perfect? It is ideally situated for all the attractions in Edinburgh? The hotel was very clean and tastefully decorated to a high standard. Our room was beautiful with lovely toiletries in our bathroom and bottles of water along with all the usual tea and coffee tray. The... More

We booked a city room at the Dunstane Hotel to find we filed in to a cramped dark room (212) in the basement of the Dunstane City across the road. Internet worked infrequently, no one answered phone calls to reception - interestingly they answered if I called from my mobile, couldn't open the wall-mounted ironing board as the bed was... More

Was very impressed with the Dunstane city hotel, very spacious twin room (202) although we were facing onto the main road, the traffic noise was not excessive even with the windows open. Lovely bathroom, nice big bath! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, we felt very welcome. The city hotel also has an honesty bar, which I think is a... More

A great hotel and highly recommended. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel itself beautiful and spotlessly clean. Its located on a main road but set back from the traffic, and public transport into the centre of Edinburgh is excellent. If you decide not to use public transport, its only around a 15 minute walk into the centre.... More

This was a great experience, the staff is most helpful and always there for guests. The restaurant was superb in our opinion and the bar area very comfortable. Our room was exactly as advertised. We highly recommend Dunstane house and will stay there again

A bijoux hotel in the West End of Edinburgh. The main building is set back from the main road, so traffic noise is not a problem. Very difficult to find fault in any department. The restaurant deserves your custom. Looking forward to my next visit.

I have been to both the main Hotel, and the City many times now. Easy to get to, parking, easy access to the town; and excellent accommodation, service & food. Would I go back? Of course! I don' t think twice about it!
