This is the 3rd time that we have stayed here and it never fails to impress. Stunning architecture, beautiful garden, excellent service, wonderful internal decoration, food to die for and a cracking bar. Cannot fault the place. Do not hesitate to book in here.

The hotel is beautifully appointed and the staff from reception to chamber maids all friendly and communicative and ready to help. Our room was in the building on the south side of the road Next to their conservatory. Completely quiet room and although on the smaller side it was well laid out and had a decent bathroom with bath.

The exterior hides the level of luxury and the friendliness of the staff inside. Sat out the front drinkings Orkney beers on the hottest day this summer and then had a selection of Orkney dishes for dinner. Thanks to everyone at the Dunstane for a great night.

The Dunstane is a very nice, very high-tech hotel. You can walk from the Haymarket train station if you don't have too much luggage. The front desk was very friendly and upgraded my room without me asking for no additional charge. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfy. It included a desk, a small couch and... More

We stayed at this superb hotel from 10th July to the 13th July and what a fantastic experience. We had to go to Edinburgh for busines and a bit of leisure when not working. From the first moment we walked in we were greeted with a smile. The young lady was so professional, pleasant and took our bags and carried... More

At the end of a lot of travel around the British Isles I finished up in Edinburgh for two nights. I hadn't heard of Dunstane, had booked in a rush without properly reviewing and so hoped for the best. I was so pleased.

We came to Edinburgh for a long weekend. The hotel is a 25 min walk from the centre, albeit buses run outside and the tram can be caught at the Haymarket just down the road. We were also in the annex across the road and despite it being average temperature outside, the room was like a hot house! You could... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dunstane 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 our 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
