Beautiful guest house. Tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. It seemed that even the small things had been thought of such as a bookcase on our landing with books and games for the kids to use. David was the perfect host... Knowledgable and attentive without being overbearing (he suggested we visit The Kelpies whilst in Falkirk, that were just amazing!). Our... More

The Dunedin guesthouse was recommended to me by my dad who stays with David and Irene every year for the Rugby. For this reason, I had high expectations! Well, having now returned from Edinburgh after a glorious week away, I can confirm that the Dunedin guesthouse is as lovely as expected! The room was immaculate, and breakfast was exactly the...

The room was especially nice, with a beautiful view. Good beds! Breakfasts were wonderful, with a wide range of tasty choice as well as quite healthy and environmentally conscience. The location is exceptionally quiet and very easy to get to. Bus service is fast and frequent. And the best part were our hosts. David and Irene were not only very... More

This a short bus ride from the Royal Mile. It commands an excellent view of Arthur's Seat and is a short walk to the Scottish Parliament. The rooms are very nice. The service is excellent. They can direct you to all of the nearby attractions and give you tips to make your stay worthwhile. David will go out of his... More

My wife and I stayed here, got the name from Rick Steve's travel book. It was the cleanest and nicest guest house we stayed in. David and his wife were excellent hosts, and served a very good breakfast. The place is maintained very well

Welcomed by Irene, who was very helpful and interested in my visit to Edinburgh, she put me at my ease immediately. I was staying in the only single room they had. The accommodation was very clean, the only downside was that the bathroom (exclusive use) was along the landing. A dressing gown was provided which made things easier. I had... More

Perfect stay for our family of 4 (family room on 3rd floor with 1 double + 2 twin beds). Very clean and comfortable. David was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants (had good meals at Heller's Kitchen and the Salisbury Pub), and directions for our drive to Skye. Irene makes a wonderful breakfast: your choice from a menu. Thoroughly enjoyed... More

I booked a twin room with my mother for one night - her first trip away since my father passed away a couple of weeks previously. It was going to be vital that the accommodation was quiet, comfortable and not intrusive. David and his wife were very welcoming but at the same time left us to our own devices. The... More

After snagging the one tiny parking space on a nearby street for our car, we stayed here 2 nights with friends. It's a short and inexpensive bus ride (1 block away) to downtown so no need to drive and park, which I wouldn't recommend in any case in Edinburgh. The room was spacious and the view from out room over... More

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
