Very charming old residence, which has been well mantained through the years with warm and elegant Interiors. Our room was nicely decorated but a bit too small for two people. We have slept in more comfortable beds. Breakfast was good with several choices available. The owner is very friendly and has provided us with the information we needed to see... More

Me and my missus stayed 4 nights in room nr3 which was very spacious, bathroom bit small but ok. Mr Richard was very helpful and friendly person. Very good location, just 5 minuts to bus station or 30 min walk to Edinburg castle. Breakfast was lush... Car park provided which is very useful in tiny Edinburg´s streets

We stayed at Dorstan for 4 days in april over Easter weekend. We were looking for a reasonably priced location, thus opted for this B&B as it was not right in the centre of Edinburgh. It proved to be a great base to tour around from. Local bus service is fantastic, so a 10 min ride had us at the... More
