My husband booked a weekend break from 2-4th Jan for my birthday a much needed break for us both after working over Xmas. The Hotel was perfect a great choice. The bus stop outside is so handy but if you want to walk into the centre it's not too far either. The breakfasts were beautiful and the rooms comfortable and... More

Staff were lovely and always very polite, when we checked in we were escorted out and over the street to our room and given a quick rundown of where to find everything.... More

I found this hotel for our wedding anniversary through Trip Advisor listings and reviews. It certainly did not disappoint! I booked, and contacted the hotel requesting a room in the older building as per a suggestion from another review, as the rooms are a bit bigger. I mentioned it was for our wedding anniversary (we got married in Scotland and... More

We were lucky enough to stay in room 1 with its classic decor and 4-poster bed. The breakfast and evening meals provided were first class. The care and attention to detail the staff possess here is highly commendable, especially Caroline who went out of her way to make our stay ever so comfortable. This hotel is really one of the...

My partner and I stayed for two nights at the Dunstane. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean and tidy. We also ate at the hotel restaurant one evening and the food was great and the staff were all charming. Breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious, there was a huge selection and again it was great food and... More

I have been in many boutique hotels and prefer them over the big chains. Dunstane Hotel is really your choice when in Edinburgh. Friendly and warm welcome make you feel at home instantly. Each room is different and radiates a personal touch. Sizes of the room vary but each and every of them is well equipped. The price to quality... More

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
