We stayed in the Dunedin Guest House for two nights. It is a nice residential section of town. Rooms were very comfortable and had very nice small unexpected touches. We stayed on the third floor and room had a very nice view. The hosts were very helpful regarding local dining spots. We very much enjoyed one a few short blocks away and one in town. Buses to the Royal Mile were frequent and bus stop was half a block from the B&B. We walked from the B&B to the Royal Mile on day 2 and that was a reasonable 25 minute, flat walk. Breakfasts were typical Scotland fare and choice might be considered ordinary for most American travelers. Food was well prepared.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dunedin Guest House is a semi-detached Victorian Villa located on a large sunny corner with gardens and a lovely view of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags. Built as a family home in 1882, the three-story house was divided into two homes in the 1950s and returned to a single dwelling around late 1980s. Sympathetically converted into the present accommodations, the house is a listed building and therefore retains such original features as a magnificently lit cupola that dominates the central staircase and gives the house an airy spaciousness. Other original features are the mosaic-tiled entrance and vestibule, ornate cornices and a spectacular plasterwork thistle ceiling in the breakfast room. Original woodwork prevails throughout the guestrooms, as well, with massive Canadian pine doors, paneling and dados. ... more less
