We spent a lovely long weekend here, but were lucky to have an upgrade to the blue room, which had a very spacious bedroom, and a huge deluxe bathroom with a jacuzzi bath..our room was in the hotels house, which is set on the opposite side of the road, meaning you have to go to the main house for breakfast....

We wanted to stay close to Edinburgh but needed a car parking space because we had hired a car to travel on to Kirkcaldy later in the week. We wouldn't recommend hiring a car if you are just staying in Edinburgh, it is must nicer to walk, and public transport is very convenient also. Most of the hotels in central... More

Only a 15 minute walk from central Edinburgh, this hotel is conveniently located and lovely inside. We stayed there 2 out of our 4 nights in the city, but wish we had've booked all four nights there! We were shown to our room in the newer portion of the hotel, and were both very happy when we opened the door... More

I spent 4 night in this cute and charming hotel ! In a very quiet area ! The room was a boutique double room, very clean, nice it was great, a little bit smaller than expected but still very confortable. However the blanket was quite short. The bathroom was very clean and well designed. The staff was nice and helpful... More

We were welcomed by lovely staff, who advised us our room was ready at 10am which was a lovely surprise, we then enjoyed the atmosphere of all the crowds making there way to Murrayfield whilst sitting on the grass outside in the sun.We didn't eat any dinner, but did have a lovely breakfast, and a special mention must go to...

We returned home yesterday from a wonderful break at Dunstane Hotel Edinburgh. We stayed in the luxury appointed delux room in the biggest bed I've ever slept in.

On arrival we were initially put in a room across the road from the main hotel, which was unfortunately too small for a family of four - it was more like a big double than a family room. Our request to move was dealt with pleasant and efficiently and we were put in a much bigger room in the main... More

Hi there, Thank you for you lovely review, I'm glad we were able to accommodate your request of a larger family room in the Dunstane House. You are correct we do have the 2 Victorian properties, The House is more classic & traditional where as our luxury Townhouse is more contemporary with all the modern amenities.
