This was our second stay at the Dunstane House Hotel and I can say we will definitely be back. On both occasions we have been upgraded to four poster rooms, The first time to a large room (room 2) with the biggest bed I have ever seen and this time to a smaller room (room 1) but still lovely. The standards of cleanliness in this hotel couldn't be any better, the rooms are spotless with the bathrooms always gleaming. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and nothing seems to much trouble. The only thing I would suggest is a fridge in the room so that fresh milk can be available with the tea making facilities. This would make the room perfect.

We have always booked with breakfast included in our stay and I would certainly recommend it. A good continental selection is available together with your choice of cooked breakfast. As well as a full Scottish breakfast there is also porridge, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, boiled eggs and soldiers and others. This is all accompanied with tea or coffee and plenty of toast.

We choice to drive to the hotel on this visit however its location is very close to Haymarket station and about 1 1/2 miles to Princes Street / Royal Mile. We have always chosen to walk from the hotel to all the major sites, however there is a bus stop outside the hotel which has buses to all the tourist spots.

We also ate in the restaurant during our stay (Skerries), however we have reviewed this separately.

I booked this hotel for a birthday weekend for my girlfriend and it was worth every penny. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a room larger than my front room and gorgeous in every way. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was delicious. You have to try the seafood chowder starter. The staff are lovely and on the Saturday night we spent time talking with jamie and Urszula, 2 lovely people. All in all a fabulous stay and if im ever back in Edinburgh theres only 1 hotel I go

Just finished a beautiful breakfast ahead of our day in Edinburgh. Hotel is exceptionally clean and well presented and staff all very helpful.

The hotel is in a great location for the city centre and the bus stop right outside the hotel provides an easy way into the city centre.

Thank you so much for your review - and while you were with us too! I cannot wait to tell the Housekeeper that you were impressed with her high standards! She really is excellent and has such a caring and loyal team - we are so lucky.

I recently organised a trip for three, for my brothers 40th Birthday Present staying at The Dunstane Hotel. There's always a little pressure when you are the one responsible for the booking, however, as soon as we arrived the pressure was immediately lifted!
Great hotel, great staff, superb food and the Whisky tasting ... perfect!

Hi there

Thank you for your lovely comments - the staff will be delighted! I know Jamie enjoyed organising your whisky tasting in Edinburgh - we do like to do bespoke events and stays for our guests. You get the best value for money that way! The Dunstane was the perfect choice for your whisky tasting as you were able to start making your way through our selection of 70 malts in the Stane Bar!

Please let us know if you have any other birthdays coming up we would be delighted to help!

We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel isn't too far from the city centre - You can walk there if you like a nice stroll. Otherwise, taxis and buses are constantly on the go on the main road passing the hotel. There is a car park at the front of the hotel.

Our room was quite trendy and also very clean and comfortable. A good size too.

Unfortunately, you can only have breakfast in the hotel. Having said that, the breakfast was very good indeed with a wide array of tasty choices available. If you want other food you need to go across the main road to the sister hotel. We didn't try the food there but heard good reports from fellow guests.

We liked this well kept hotel and feel it would appeal to most.

Dear Judge_Judy

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave your review - it is so appreciated!

I'm so pleased your were comfortable and the location was great for you. Next time you stay please feel free to order room service if you would rather stay in the comfort of your room than the Skerries Restaurant. you are correct we do not unfortunately have two restaurants but we are more than happy to offer the full menu as room service during restaurant opening hours.

Hope to see you again soon to start trying the dishes!

Best Wishes
Samantha
