Dunedin Guest House was our first stop in the UK after a transatlantic flight and we were given a warm welcome by David and allowed to check in at 9 am. Since we were two couples he recommended a taxi to go downtown as it was less expensive than four bus fares. Our rooms on the 1st floor were well... More

...but definitely not our last! We found this place via Rick Steves, then did verification via Trip Advisor. While the house is not close to the Royal Mile, the bus system was easy to use and cost-efficient. Rooms lovely and very clean; breakfast was delicious every day. We are now back home and I miss someone bringing me a pot... More

This is a great place to visit. This was our second trip to Edinburgh and we could not think of any other place to stay. The hospitality and service are excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable. You are just a short bus ride to the Royal Mile and all of the attractions there.

We enjoyed our stay do the guesthouse. We stayed during the w-end and we're happy to park the car for free in front of the house and walk to the city or with bus on rainy day. We were happy to enjoy this place outside the noisy and some unsafe areas in the city. The room was nice, with all... More

Spent three nights here and have no complaints. The inn is located about a block from several bus lines that take you right into the middle of the Royal Mile or to the Grassmarket district. Had a twin room. It was spacious and comfortable; the bathroom had lots of handy hooks to hang towels and other items. The proprietor was... More

I can verify the comments below. We have been staying in B&B’s on Priestfield Road for 7 years. A great place to be whilst our daughter was at University here, walking distance to Pollock Halls and Arthur’s Seat. I have also walked into the city from here but there is a good bus service at the end of the road.... More

As ever we had a lovely stay at Dunedin. This was our third stay here in a year and the hospitality was as good as ever, a fabulous breakfast and a really warm welcome. We stayed for two nights in the double room at the front which has a lovely view across to Arthur's Seat. The B&B is a short... More

Perfectly located guesthouse with excellent hosts. Very welcoming and willing to help with any requests large or small. The cooked breakfasts were freshly prepared and tasty. Hearty enough to keep you going for most of the day. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling to this part of Scotland.

We stayed here for 4 nights while exploring Edinburgh and area. We had one of the family rooms as we were traveling with our infant son. Our room was large, and at the top of the stairs. It was tastefully decorated and spacious. Our bathroom was good, although there was only a shower. The owners are lovely and have a... More

We stayed at the Dunedin House for 3 nights in early August. We had a great visit to Edinburgh. The Dunedin House is in a great location. We took the bus and taxi into the center of downtown. Very easy for either. David is a great host and serves a good breakfast. Parking is challenging if you drive. But, our... More
