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
