My wife and I recently stayed for four nights and had a great time. The proprietors are super friendly. The room was very nice; spacious, clean and quiet. Breakfasts are good here, with a full selection of the usual suspects. The Dunedin is just outside city center, in an area where there are a lot of B&Bs, but that is... More

Absolut fantastic. Very easy to find from Airpoort, short way to City by bus. Very helpful and friendly. They explained us exactly where parking the car is allowed so we won't get a ticket. The breakfast was rich. A must try when in Edinburgh.

This was our last stop in a 3-week trip and we found it to be a nice spot to wind down our travels. The location is located within 2 blocks of a busy bus stop, so we never had any challenge in finding our way to and from city center and attractions. Additionally, the walk from Holyrood back to Dunedin... More

My wife, myself, and my mother-in-law stayed here during our 2.5 week stay in Scotland. Our flight arrived in Edinburgh around 7am, and we arrived at Dunedin Guest House around 8:30am. It was too early to check in, but Tony stored our luggage for us and told us how we could get to the Royal Mile via bus as it... More

We had stayed previously and found it very comfortable and convenient. Recently under new ownership (12weeks). Breakfast a bit chaotic with mixed up orders. Breakfast timings odd- earlier on sun than through week. We arrived down in time for breakfast at 9.30( latest timing) on sun but were give 1/4 piece of toast each with breakfast.

Dunedin Guest House was our first stop in the UK after a transatlantic flight and we were given a warm welcome by David and allowed to check in at 9 am. Since we were two couples he recommended a taxi to go downtown as it was less expensive than four bus fares. Our rooms on the 1st floor were well... More

...but definitely not our last! We found this place via Rick Steves, then did verification via Trip Advisor. While the house is not close to the Royal Mile, the bus system was easy to use and cost-efficient. Rooms lovely and very clean; breakfast was delicious every day. We are now back home and I miss someone bringing me a pot... More

This is a great place to visit. This was our second trip to Edinburgh and we could not think of any other place to stay. The hospitality and service are excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable. You are just a short bus ride to the Royal Mile and all of the attractions there.

We enjoyed our stay do the guesthouse. We stayed during the w-end and we're happy to park the car for free in front of the house and walk to the city or with bus on rainy day. We were happy to enjoy this place outside the noisy and some unsafe areas in the city. The room was nice, with all... More

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
