We, along with another couple, stayed at the Dunstane House for 3 nights. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the lady at reception (sorry I can't remember names). We were surprised and delighted to find out that they had upgraded our room to a "deluxe", as the "classic" room that we had booked was not available. I don't think this should be expected but were we ever happy to get it. The room was quite large and exquisitely designed, and super clean. I would highly recommend the splurge to the deluxe room if you can swing it. Location was a short walk to the city and train station with a bus stop right outside the front door if you needed it. This is a boutique hotel in the truest sense of the word. As this was the last 3 nights of our trip in Scotland I can tell you that this is a bona fide 4* hotel according to North American standards. We had stayed at several so called 4*'s prior to Dunstane House which did not always live up to their rating. In my personal opinion, they have exceeded their rating in our case. Breakfast was elegant and tasty, and the gentleman that served us was dressed in a suit each morning. Very classy and super service. I really hate to gush as I often disregard the 'overly' excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, but I cannot say enough about this hotel and our experience. Fabulous staff, super helpful, and cheerful!
