We visited Edinburgh for a short break with our daughter and her friend. We took advantage of Dunstane's off peak offer - stay 3 nights including a Sunday and pay for 2 - which made the price appropriate. One of the reasons we selected Dunstane House was for wireless internet access to keep in contact with our business. This appeared not to be working - although we have used our laptop before in other locations [not at our home] and since - with no problems. Although reported, to reception, problem remained unsolved. Breakfast - no marmalade available for all 3 days and other preserves cheap brand blister portions. Breakfast sausage - disappointing quality - I would guess less expensive commercial. On the positive my wife enjoyed the kippers. Failed light bulb in our room remained unchanged. Some pleasant helpful staff and others very sullen. Would we stay again - probably not? We do not like the larger chain hotels, but believed that our choice of a 4 star small Scottish Hotel would have delivered a better experience. Will try another next time. More attention to detail needed.
- 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
