Fed up of standard egg-box hotels?
The Dunstane House Hotel is a charming alternative to chain hotels. This is my favourite Edinburgh hotel. not because it has the best rooms or the best facilities, but because I have always found that the staff are friendly and accommodating (I have counted, I have stayed there six times).
On the main express bus route from the airport, the bus stop is right outside the hotel (Edinburgh bus services are really good).
Haymarket railway station is a short walk or bus ride away. Access to the city centre is similarly good.
A good bar, with many malts!
Good bathrooms, excellent toiletries.
Pleasant breakfast, cooked to order.
Most rooms very good. This is an old building, the rooms vary,
Less good points:
Well, the varied rooms! The singles and small doubles can be very small. There seems to be too much furniture in them.
Try this hotel, it is different and nice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dunstane House dates all the way back to 1852 to a design of William Playfair, one of Edinburgh's most famous architects. Now a boutique hotel privately-owned and managed by Derek and Shirley Mowat, each of the sixteen bedrooms offers a fresh take on country house charm. You can look forward to restful nights in four-poster beds with subtle accents of current style. Or stretch out king-size and enjoy all the period details and in-room features. ... more less
