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...

Hello Rugbydamo Thanks so much for the mention - the staff especially will be so delighted when I tell them. They try so hard to make our guests stays special and they will be so chuffed to have been recognised. Rugby weekends are a busy time for us as you probably noticed and I am so pleased that this did... More

Visited here with my girlfriend for a relaxing couple of days in Edinburgh. On arrival the receptionist was really friendly and quickly showed us to our room even though we arrived before check in.

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. At first I had reservations about its position next to reception on the ground floor but it turned out not to be a problem. The room and bathroom were very smart and... More

Dear Liz N, Wow, what a great review, I am so pleased that you loved our hotel! All our bedrooms here at The Dunstane are designed individually so all very different and most of our Deluxe and Luxury Rooms have big double beds.

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. We love giving guests... More

Despite a problem with double booking the room I booked for our first night I would heartily recommend this hotel. The staff handled the error well, we were given room 2 for the first night, a lovely 4 poster room in a traditional style. Very comfortable, very welcoming room. For the second night we were in room 20,the fantastic blue... More

We stayed at the Dunstane House for just one night but wished it was for much longer. What a stunning period boutique hotel. Spotless and immaculate. Evey extra has been thought off in the room. Superb staff, outstanding food and my best stay ever in Edinburgh. I will stay here whenever I visit Edinburgh in the future.

Great service and food, rooms were lovely, very comfy and clean. The staff were brilliant and really made us welcome during our stay. The walk into the city centre takes you past lots of interesting shops and nice cafes. When we next go to Edinburgh we'll definitely stay here again.
