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.

Dear Bichonlovers Thank you for taking the time to let everyone know about your stay. You are totally right though the deluxe and luxury rooms are well worth the upgrade! 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

I booked this hotel for a birthday weekend for my girlfriend and it was worth every penny. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a room larger than my front room and gorgeous in every way. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was delicious. You have to try the seafood chowder starter. The staff... More

Just finished a beautiful breakfast ahead of our day in Edinburgh. Hotel is exceptionally clean and well presented and staff all very helpful. The hotel is in a great location for the city centre and the bus stop right outside the hotel provides an easy way into the city centre.

I recently organised a trip for three, for my brothers 40th Birthday Present staying at The Dunstane Hotel. There's always a little pressure when you are the one responsible for the booking, however, as soon as we arrived the pressure was immediately lifted! Great hotel, great staff, superb food and the Whisky tasting ... perfect!
