My bf and I on the very last minute have decided to go to Scotland for my first ever snow experience. I am so amazed that aside from the snow experience that I had and the lovely scenery that everyone is expecting, staying in this hotel was a very nice bonus to our trip!
From the UK we took a plane to Scotland, arrived at inverness, spent an awesome day there! we rented a car so it was really an adventure. Fun and tiring and FUN FUN FUN indeed. We stayed in an ok hotel at Aviemore then the next day travelled to Edinburgh.
You can just imagine how tired we were so when we arrived at Edinburgh and found this hotel we were both shocked to find how nice it was. It was not modern at all which was what I was really hoping for. I felt like I was in those old English movies! I sooo like! It was so elegant! An added extra was the very lovely receptionist there who told us the we got upgraded for a bigger room! Oh my, we were so happy and felt that were like the luckiest travellers at that point of time. haha!
The breakfast was really fantastic. The extra stuff that they provided such as tea, coffee, chocolate, soaps, lotions etc etc etc were also great! What more can I say. This is the best hotel experience ever! I really wish I can visit Scotland again and definitely will stay here. No questions asked.
- 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.
