My husband and I are just back from an amazing weekend at Dunstane House Hotel. The hotel was easy to get to and just lovely - I can't praise it enough. The welcome was warm and the staff were faultless throughout our stay - helpful at every point. We stayed for 2 nights in a four poster room which was very pretty, large and incredibly comfortable - I had some of the best nights sleep I've ever had. The decoration was stylish but without being pretentious and had a very large flatscreen tv. The bathroom was stocked with Molton Brown minatures (always a plus point for me) and spotlessly clean.
We were impressed by the hotel's breakfast which was a proper Scottish breakfast made with good quality ingredients and cooked with care. There was also a good selection of cereals, juices etc. The menu for the hotel's restaurant Skerries looked good and because of the breakfast we decided to have dinner on the second night at hotel's restaurant (something we wouldn't normally do - they're usually disappointing). The dinner was delicious - the focus is on seafood and the dishes were generous. The chocolate fondant is without a doubt one of the best I've ever had.
The only criticism we had was the music in the restaurant which was a little bit cheesy for our tastes and there was a large party of women drinking in the bar - the noise carried into the restaurant.
I would highly recommend staying at the Dunstane - we intend to return and I'll be booking this for my Mum's birthday weekend as well - the spa menu looked great!
