We stayed here for 2 nights for a short break to Edinburgh. The hotel itself is a lovely building surrounded by nice gardens and the inside is beautifully decorated. We arrived around lunch time and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist. Although we arrived a couple of hours before the specified check-in time, the staff made our room up immediately upon our arrival and gave us drinks in the bar area during the short wait. The room was stylishly decorated and very comfortable, with a nice en suite and Molton Brown toiletries. Breakfast was good. The hotel has a bus stop immediately outside and takes no more than 5 minutes to get to the centre, although as we were blessed with very sunny weather we walked into town a couple of days and it took about 10-15 minutes. Overall a very pleasant stay and would stay here again when returning to Edinburgh.
- 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
