I stayed at the Dunstane Hotel last weekend with my husband and two children. Staff were very welcoming upon our arrival, everything was ready for us in our room upon our arrival. We wanted a quick bite to eat before retiring to our room so ate in the hotel restaurant. We only wanted a quick bite so opted for the... More

Went for a weekend away to Edinburgh on the 11th of July for my Partner's 30th birthday and decided to book the Dunstane for somewhere special to stay for it as it looked stunning. From the minute we arrived all the staff were really nice and welcoming we even got upgraded to the blue room for our special occasion which... More

I am madly in love with The Dustane. It is a charming property, exceptionally well managed, and quiet. While it's a 15-minute walk to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle and other attractions, it's a pleasant oasis away from the hustle & bustle of the tourist center. Taxis are abundant, and the Lothian bus has a stop a few steps... More

Hi there Thank you every so much for that. It really makes our day when we can see that we have made someone's holiday special. I am delighted you enjoyed your room and our restaurant.

We spent 3 nights here as part of an anniversary trip and absolutely loved it. It's right on the stop for the bus coming from the airport as well as other buses that go to the city center. We ended up walking into the center every day, and the walk wasn't too bad...maybe about 15 minutes and completely flat. The... More

Good morning What a lovely review! Thank you so much for that we really appreciate it. For future reference we have the non slip mats available on request. We find it more hygienic not to have them left in the bathrooms all the time but we have plenty available. I do hope you enjoyed your anniversary and next time why... More

I would recommend this hotel if you don't mind a bit of a walk from the main attractions. It took us about 15 minutes to walk to the Royal Mile at a brisk pace. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is separated into two buildings across the street from each other. There is a small self-service bar... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The room was big enough for both of us. Bed was comfortable, the pillows were the only thing I'd say needed changing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice enough too. It did it's job. We're likely to return.

The Dunstane is a lovely hotel just outside the City Centre in Edinburgh and is perfect for that wonderful, romantic getaway. The rooms are beautiful (Room 20), the hotel has a lot of history and the bar and Skerries Restaurant outdo themselves to make you feel fabulous!! Andrew was one of our favorite staff members and was only too happy... More

I've definitely got mixed feelings about this place. The hotel, staff, breakfast were all great, no doubts about that, but we did feel the room was way too small, definitely not worth the money, and prevented us from enjoying the hotel and city to the fullest. We specifically asked for a boutique room in the main building (after reading one... More

Facilities are very good,everything in the room was spotless!! It's a little bit of a walk from the City center but not too far. We were a little confused at finding that there's actually two parts to the hotel,one new & modern the other older & architecturally stunning. Wish we have enough notice to book on the older side.

Booked this hotel to end our week in the highlands with a bit of luxury but unfortunately this wasn't the case. The confirmed room we booked was a deluxe double but when we saw the room it was clearly not a double! When I went back to reception they said there had been a mistake but unfortunately they couldn't offer... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
