Fed up of standard egg-box hotels?
The Dunstane House Hotel is a charming alternative to chain hotels. This is my favourite Edinburgh hotel. not because it has the best rooms or the best facilities, but because I have always found that the staff are friendly and accommodating (I have counted, I have stayed there six times).
On the main express bus route from the airport, the bus stop is right outside the hotel (Edinburgh bus services are really good).
Haymarket railway station is a short walk or bus ride away. Access to the city centre is similarly good.
A good bar, with many malts!
Good bathrooms, excellent toiletries.
Pleasant breakfast, cooked to order.
Most rooms very good. This is an old building, the rooms vary,
Less good points:
Well, the varied rooms! The singles and small doubles can be very small. There seems to be too much furniture in them.
Try this hotel, it is different and nice.
- 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
