Dunstane House is an excellent hotel with friendly staff, well appointed bedrooms and great food.
I was travelling alone on business and needed a hotel relatively close to the centre of Edinburgh. I got a decent price for B&B on Laterooms, and the hotel had good reviews on that site so I booked a double room for single occupancy.
When I arrived the smallish car park behind the hotel was full but I was able to get my car into the car park of the Dunstane City hotel which is just across the road (and is the sister hotel of Dunstane House).
Check in was easy and efficient and the young lady on reception provided a very warm welcome.
The room was excellent. Nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, nice big double bed, desk, flat screen tv with tons of channels, small bathroom with just a shower which is fine by me.
As I was on my own I chose to eat in the bar instead of the restaurant as it was more informal. The menu is the same. I started with some excellent plump mussels and followed up with a truly superb ribeye steak. The menu is limited but interesting and I'm told that most of not all of the produce is sourced in the Orkneys as that is from where the owners hail. Well wherever it comes from the chef does it justice and my steak was cooked to perfection.
The bed was very comfortable and I had a good night's sleep with no discernible noise from either outside or inside the hotel.
Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and very good quality.
I would definitely stay at the Dunstane House hotel again and would happily recommend it to friends and colleagues staying in Edinburgh.
