Rooms are very small. Bed quality - the chipset ever! Bathroom small, shower glass broken, and the worst - the towels smelly of mould! We stayed in the building opposite the main building. To get to have breakfast you have to cross a very busy dangerous road. The room not only small, but very noisy. When people shower in one... More

The staff were lovely and helpful upon arrival as well as throughout our stay; chatty and approachable they were quick to help and get anything we asked for. The room was stunning and perfectly furnished; clean and tidy of course with plenty of space. The en-suite was adequate and also beautifully decorated; the waterfall shower was great and the water...

Hello there Thank you for that lovely review, what glowing praise. Next time please do ask for more towels if that is your personal preference, we give 2 per person but it is absolutely no problem for you to have more! Don't be worried about asking us to make your stay even better - that is why we are here.... More

My husband and I have just returned from this hotel. It is a hotel of two halves, the older part, and also where you register, is situated on one side of the road and the boutique town house is across the road. We were booked in by a delightful young lady named Caroline. She took us over to our room,... More

I booked two rooms after viewing the hotel website, when we actually got to our rooms, they bore no relation what was advertised, they were very small I presume the rooms advertised were across the road. Although being small the rooms were well appointed and clean. The staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. Breakfasts were tasty and filling. The location... 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
