The Dunstane House Hotel (not to be confused with the Dunstane City Hotel opposite) is a really nice hotel for those who are seeking an alternative to the contemporary offerings of the modern hotel chains.
1. A short and simple walk from the Haymarket train station (take a left out of the station and keep on the straight road, about 10 min walk up on the right).
2. Very good food
3. Helpful staff
4. Clean rooms and super clean bathrooms with Molton Brown toiletries and a proper haridryer
1. Smaller than average room sizes
2. No air con and very warm rooms
3. Kitchen noise in the mornings with rooms located above or alongside this facitlity
Overall it was a little pricey for my liking, although you could argue that good quality food, the traditional look and helpful staff warranted the additional expense. I would probably source accommodation within walking distance to the City if I was looking to spend a bit of time in Edinburgh.
