Just returned from a one night stay in a luxury room and was very pleased. The four poster bed was fabulous, the room was decorated nicely with very high ceilings, the staff were very polite and helpful and the food in the restaurant was delicious (highly recommend the seafood). The prices for food and drink were very reasonable. We will... More

Stayed here last month while meeting friends in Edinburgh. The hotel location was ideal as was only a short walk into the city centre. The hotel was clean staff very attentive and the food excellent. As other reviews have said the attention to detail was second to none. Staff could not do enough for us. Well located and made for... More

I stayed with a group of friends Monday to Thursday. The rooms were clean and comfortable with good bathroom facilities. We had not appreciated that we would be in the smaller hotel across the road from the main hotel. It is very pleasant but as we were visiting during a very hot week, those of us in the front of...

We enjoyed our stay very much. Staff was friendly and the room was beautiful. Within easy walking distance to city centre, as well as being near the airport. Would definitely recommend to other travellers.

This was definitely a delightful place to stay. Glad we had three days there. It's a few miles out from Inverness near the sweet little town of Dores right on Loch Ness. The lane down to the house is narrow and in June was lined with foxglove wildflowers...big and beautiful. Cows across the road from the house and horses and... More

It was our first trip to Edinburgh and thankful to have booked Dunstane City Hotel. Hubby and I stayed 2 nights there from 21 to 23 June 2014. It's a boutique hotel with great attention given to details to ensure maximum comfort for guests - super comfy bed, quality toiletries, generous hospitality tray - the list goes on. Our room... More

This is an absolutely lovely hotel in Edinburgh. The staff was exceptional. My room was on the top floor, and was nicely furnished. The breakfast in the mornings was very good, and made even better by the surroundings of the beautiful dining room. There is a bus stop located right outside the hotel, which makes it very easy to get... More

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.

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

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
