I stopped in overnight on a business trip, and Dunedin House was perfect. The room was warm, a nice size, tastefully furnished; the bed was very comfortable; the en suite bathroom well-stocked with fluffly towels. The room was very quiet - the house is on a quiet residential street and there was no traffic noise. David was very friendly. I... More

We stayed here for one night and had a very comfortable stay. David was very accommodating in allowing us to check in early to fit with our early train time and was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. We were provided with all information we might need such as bus numbers and locations of bus stops and recommendations for... More

We had a great stay at Dunedin House., the room was spacious, well appointed and meticulously clean. The location is good with frequent bus service just around the corner. David was a great host , somewhat shy/reserved at first; he warmed up and was quite charming and always very helpful. The breakfasts served in a bright and warm room were... More

Stayed two nights in mid-September. David was a bit dour and his wife was decidedly unfriendly, actually she was not present at all until my wife and I were leaving (we think that she was arguing with David!). Rates were quite high for the room/service provided. The upstairs room was noisy because of traffic; lots of space and very clean.... More

References to the friendliness of my wife and I, are not borne out by our numerous Excellent and Very Good Reviews, and so these remarks are both personal and incorrect - 93% of our reviewers cannot be wrong. This is much more about a couple who had the misfortune to be involved in a Road Traffic Accident, now quite traumatised,... More

Twelve of us stayed, in 6 rooms, for the weekend of my daughter's wedding down the road at Prestonfield House. We were all pleased with our rooms apart from the fact that the single room was a bit too light at night due to a street light just outside. The breakfasts were lovely - between us we must have tried... More

Enjoyed our 3 night stay here. Spotlessly clean. The WIFI is somewhat slow and needed to be rebooted at least twice over three days. David is marvelous. His wife was unnecessarily nasty. When I checked out 15 minutes late (10:15 am) she snapped at me about it. The breakfast was exceptionally good. Our room in the front with enormous bay... More

Some elements of this Review are factually incorrect. Checkout time here is 10.30am and Bill Payment is logged on our Credit Card Machine at 10.50am. The guests checked out at 11.15am, not 10.15am as stated (45 mins late, not 15 mins) The exceptionally good breakfast was cooked by my wife. More

Arrived at Dunedin Guest House and was received warmly by David, who was very helpful in carrying my heavy suitcase up to my room. The room was to the front of the house, it wasn’t a big room, but it was cozy and comfortable, and, best of all, it had an armchair. Some B&Bs I’ve been to in the past... More

Just stayed here for only one night in this beautifully decorated house. Room was lovely and spotlessly clean with a view up to Arthurs Seat. Great Scottish breakfast too. It is in a lovely area of Edinburgh and is a pleasant 15 minute walk into town and a great pub with very good food just around the corner. Highly recommended.

Every trip we make to Edinburgh includes a stay at Dunedin. David and Irene are the perfect hosts, always full of information, great tips, and go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable. The rooms are always spotless, the breakfast area clean and well appointed. We have yet to have a bad breakfast (and we've had a... More

Dunedin Guest House Edinburgh, Scotland
Address: 8 Priestfield Road, Edinburgh EH165HH, Scotland

Location: United Kingdom > Scotland > Edinburgh
Hotel Style:

Price Range (Based on Average Rates): $$
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dunedin Guest House is a semi-detached Victorian Villa located on a large sunny corner with gardens and a lovely view of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags. Built as a family home in 1882, the three-story house was divided into two homes in the 1950s and returned to a single dwelling around late 1980s. Sympathetically converted into the present accommodations, the house is a listed building and therefore retains such original features as a magnificently lit cupola that dominates the central staircase and gives the house an airy spaciousness. Other original features are the mosaic-tiled entrance and vestibule, ornate cornices and a spectacular plasterwork thistle ceiling in the breakfast room. Original woodwork prevails throughout the guestrooms, as well, with massive Canadian pine doors, paneling and dados. ... more   less
