We went to Edinburgh for my daughters 21st birthday last weekend. On arrival at the hotel we were made to feel very welcome, shown to our room which exceeded our expectations. It was immaculate and pristine with a larger than average bathroom. It also had an extra room as it was a suite. Very stylish decor. There is a bus... More

We are currently staying at Dunstane House for the fourth time, the first was for our honeymoon in 2009. The staff are very welcoming, very easy to approach and nothing is too much trouble. Some staff remembered us from our previous visits and we were welcomed like family members. We are in a deluxe double room this time (room 108)... More

The Dunstane House Hotel is everything we hoped it would be, exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished. Our room was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. The management are so lovely and helpful, the location is good for the city and we really enjoyed our short stay.

We do offer discounted upgrade rates on check in if you want to leave it last minute but all our rooms are of a lovely high standard and very comfortable... More
