We selected Dunstane House from reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. We wanted somewhere within walking distance of the City, and this was just under a mile out. It was an easy walk in, and the bust stop was right outside the hotel (literally).
It really was a character hotel, in a lovely old stone building. Not a good pick if you have trouble with stairs or are disabled (there was no lift), but otherwise good. The rooms were very individual (though could have used a touch up in places) and quite spacious compared to other hotels I have stayed at. It was always clean, and the staff were really helpful at all times during our visit.
The food in the restaurant (for dinner & breakfast) was good quality, and we enjoyed eating here.
There is just about enough parking between this and the sister hotel over the road, and we managed to find a space at all times during our stay.
The price was reasonable given the quality of the hotel, and I would not hesitate to stay here 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. All rooms include free WiFi, large Samsung smart TVs, Egyptian cotton bedlinens and ensuites with Noble Isle products, and many Dunstane House rooms include Nespresso coffee machines, hand-made Vispring beds and Roberts digital radios. Five unique and spacious suites are located in Dunstane House, with dramatic features such as four-poster beds, freestanding copper roll-top baths in the bedroom, or sweeping views over the Edinburgh cityscape. Within easy reach of all the attractions of old-town Edinburgh, the Dunstane Houses is a stylish and welcoming city retreat with an authentic Scottish soul. ... more less
