We stayed five nights and were very impressed with the room, the restaurant and the staff. While the room was small, it was very comfortable and served our needs. We were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and their helpfulness. If we return to Edinburgh, the Dunstane will be our first choice to stay.

We were staying for 2 nights and were so nicley welcomed. We were shown to our Deluxe room and it was delightful with a large bathroom with 2 basins and a jacuzzzi bath. The staff were very accommodating. We stayed for the evening meal and it was fantastic. Quality food at a reasonable price. In fact we liked it so... More

I stayed for 4 night in June on a work trip to Edinburgh. The Dunstane was recommended to me through the visitScotland website. It did not disappoint. My room was a single and was VERY small. Shower and basin in the room, toilet across the hallway. We removed the chair from the room so that I had enough space to... More

My partner and I stayed here in April. We found the room clean and modern and the staff very friendly and helpful. It is quite well located for Edinburgh centre we walked into town within 20minutes after a brilliant night out we did need a taxi back! Great value for money!

We stayed at the Dunstane for 1 night to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and were blown away from the moment we arrived. A wonderful presented and charming hotel was then complimented with bright and friendly staff. The very kind girl on reception gave us some tips on visiting the city and actually made notes on a map to help... More

If you ever want to see a beautiful city, go see Edinburgh. It is an amazing city. The architecture is breathtaking! We chose the Dunstane because it was a Manor House. My brother and our spouses vacation together frequently and are very particular with choosing our lodging. Living across the ocean and accessing pictures on a website makes choosing your... More

Hello again, I am sorry you feel the need to once again comment on here. I wont repeat myself needlessly but suffice to say that I feel you were compensated more than adequately considering we did all that we 'say on the tin' as it were - and more in your case with upgrades etc while you were here.

My husband and I returned from spending 6 days at this wonderfully welcoming hotel. The house itself is quite charming and picturesque with beautiful architecture, and gorgeous flower beds in the front. I was there for a conference and enjoyed every minute of the warm hospitality extended by the staff. The room was larger than we expected, very well maintained... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a short break to Edinburgh. The hotel itself is a lovely building surrounded by nice gardens and the inside is beautifully decorated. We arrived around lunch time and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist. Although we arrived a couple of hours before the specified check-in time, the staff made our room up... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with a couple of friends during our trip to Edinburgh. The location is not bad at all considering that there is a bus stop right outside their door, the nearest restaurants are near the haymarket station which is about a 7-8 min walk. We reached mid afternoon but were told to wait till 3... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dunstane House dates all the way back to 1852 to a design of William Playfair, one of Edinburgh's most famous architects. Now a boutique hotel privately-owned and managed by Derek and Shirley Mowat, each of the sixteen bedrooms offers a fresh take on country house charm. You can look forward to restful nights in four-poster beds with subtle accents of current style. Or stretch out king-size and enjoy all the period details and in-room features. ... more   less
