The good rooms are the good rooms. Please don't go for the tiny ones with the shared toilets - they are, well, exactly what you'd expect. In a refurb like this you'll get varying degrees of workmanship in the rooms - how the showers work, how the sink is placed etc and it might be a lottery in getting one... More

Hotel is perfect for exploring Edinburgh! Near haymarket train station. And 20mins quick walk into centre of Edinburgh. Our room was smallish but lovely and clean, comfy bed too. Scottish breakfast was delicious and great selection. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only tiny criticism was our poached eggs were cooked through both mornings and no one likes a hard...

Me and my girlfriend stayed for two nights at The Dunstane hotel at the end of January. Despite its slightly out of town location (about a 30 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride), the hotel was extremely clean, welcoming and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful and recommended the best places to go in town as well... More

We arrived at the Dunstane Hotel early Saturday afternoon(valentines weekend), we were greeted by very friendly staff. We knew we could not get to our room before 3.00pm but as we had arrived by train wanted to leave our bags so we could go off and explore. We had come down for the Rugby and make a nice weekend away.... More

I was extremely impressed with this hotel. Excellent food, attentive and friendly staff and great atmosphere. We booked a small double room and found it spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Looking forward to our next visit!

Traveled up from Cardiff for the Scotland V Wales game and this hotel was just perfect, a few minutes walk into Edinburgh one way and a few minutes walk to Murrayfield the other.
