We had already booked a Travelodge in the centre of Edinburgh, but weren't happy about the price of it or the fact that breakfast there consisted of a muffin in a bag (at an extra cost of £4 each) so we changed our mind and booked this place. What a good decision this turned out to be, This is a... More

At first we were a bit wary if the Dorstan House Hotel would be good or not. Unfortunately we couldn´t find any pictures online, but the price and the location, close enough to the centre but yet so far out to be quiet we booked a 2-bed en-suite for 6 days. On arriving at the house the owner greeted us... More

BEWARE! We had booked 5 nights here with the proviso that we may not need the 5th. night,then a week before we were due to travel we had to cancel the last night. We rang the hotel and gave them plenty of notice of our change of plans. Imagine our horror at check out, that the owner insisted that we... More

The people who run the B&B are very helpfull and cheerfull. They do their best to make you feel at home. Our room was very big, we had a digital television with dvd player on the room and a bath. For only 35 pound p.p. The breakfast was fresh and healty (they serve a vegetarian breakfast on request). This B&B... More

I was in Edinburgh without any accommodation reservations due to some last unforeseen changes in my itinerary. The Visit Scotland staff at the airport found me a single room with en-suite bathroom at Dorstan House during a period of high tourist volume to Edinburgh. Thus I really had no expectations of the place they had found with a vacancy. The... More

Clean,comfortable small hotel/guest house in Edinburgh, convenient location reasonable close to old-town city centre. Well-served by several bus routes, but also within walking distance to centre, if so inclined. Breakfasts were adequate and prepared and presented by cheerful hotel proprietor.

4 weeks ago we knocked on the door on spec and were welcomed in by Richard. He gave us keys for the front door and for our room and made us very at home. It was early afternoon, but lovely to come in and shower and rest for a couple of hours. 2 days ago we were back, having pre... More

I do not recommend this hotel. In our room, the blanket and pillow covers on the bed were visibly soiled and in need of washing. The mattress was very old, noisy, and lumpy. The towels in our bath were mismatched, thin, and frayed. In addition, they were still damp upon arrival (we hoped from having been pulled from the dryer... More
