When I couldn't get into the hotel we'd chosen I was so glad to be offered the Dunstane! It was immaculately clean, staff were warm and welcoming with a friendly check in by a young chap. We were given an upgrade to room 205 which is right at the entrance to the hotel. Did hear some coming and going but nothing to complain about. Room was spotless with very thick curtains which did a great job of keeping the very early rising sun out. The only thing I could say is I rather fitted sheets along with a top sheet but that is a personal preference. The bed was comfortable. Great big bathroom with a spa bath which looked quite new. We ate at the hotel's restaurant across the road and I had the best steak I've had in a long time. Being quite tired the next night after a big day sightseeing we ate there again and were not disappointed. A drink in the garden before dinner was very relaxing. Would I stay here again, definitely if I am lucky enough to be in beautiful Edinburgh again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a peaceful corner of Edinburgh’s West End, a short walk from Haymarket and 15 minutes’ drive from Edinburgh airport, The Dunstane Houses is an independent, 35-bedroom boutique hotel spread over two stately Victorian townhouses on opposite sides of the road: Dunstane House and Hampton House. Dating back to 1865, but inspired by the best of modern-day Scotland, the family-run hotel combines heritage good looks with warm, personal service and a fresh, contemporary outlook. The bedrooms and interiors throughout Dunstane House and public ares of Hampton House have been stylishly redesigned to pay tribute to the building’s neoclassical character and the owners’ Orcadian heritage, without compromising on modern comfort. The newly opened Ba’ Bar & Lounge specialises in food made with local, seasonal Scottish produce from small suppliers, and hosts relaxed but refined all-day dining, including daily afternoon tea. It offers a wide range of fine wines, craft beers, artisanal spirits and one of the most extensive rare-whisky selections in the city, with more than 70 varieties in its vintage wall cabinet.
