The Dunstane is a charming hotel in a wonderful location, walking or easy bus/taxi distance to everywhere I wanted to go in Edinburgh. I did book last minute so I was not able to get one room for the duration. The first evening I spent in the townhouse across the street in a tiny room in the sub-basement level. It... More

Booking on line and email conversation with the Hotel was very easy and professional, when we arrived early our room wasn't ready but luggage left with them, a map given to us and friendly advise about what to see and do. Bus stop just outside the hotel, but a nice 15 min walk to the main area. The hotel was... More

I took my partner away for a long weekend in Edinburgh. The Dunstane hotel looked great online, I really didn't expect it to look as great as the photos, but it did. Beautifully styled interiors to match its overwhelming exterior beauty, great food and welcoming staff.

Reserved the "Blue Room" for my partners 40th birthday celebrations in Edinburgh, arrived on a cold, damp, dismal day ...and was greated with warmth, comfort and cosyness.( is that a word?) The room was fantastic, the hotel photos dont do it justice as it is a huge room, ideal for swinging a big cat..!! Hotel was spotless and ALL staff... More

The Dunstane is a very picturesque hotel based in two big buildings in the Haymarket area of town. We received a free upgrade to the Deluxe Double which was a beautiful room. Extra mention to the helpful staff, we dealt with three different employees on the desk and they couldn't do enough for you. Felt spoiled throughout our stay, will... More

Been here with a family for a short stay in November 2014. Loved the antique outer appearance of the hotel vs modern rooms & Victorian style dining room. The hotel has two buildings, one across the street from another. Nice bathroom and luscious toiletries made it a pleasant evening after the busy day. A bit far from the city centre... More

A girlfriend and I shared a room in this lovely hotel for two nights last weekend. The staff could not have been more helpful, we had a small problem with the lock on the bedroom door. This was expertly fixed within a short while of bringing it to the attention of the front reception staff. The shower was hot and... More

Great location for the prices. The service was beyond excellent, and they really went out of their way to make us comfortable. The cooked-to-order breakfasts were delicious and quick (we became fans of black pudding!). Our room was across the street in the City Hotel property. The room was on the small side for our U.S. tastes, but it was... More
