#10 of 164 in Edinburgh
Travelers' Choice
Luxurious, relaxed and unlike anywhere you’ve ever stayed before, the Dunstane Houses form two parts of a family-run 5-Star boutique hotel that brings a breath of fresh Orkney air to the heart of Edinburgh. A short walk from Haymarket, 15 minute walk to city-centre and 15 minutes’ drive from Edinburgh airport, the 35-bedroom boutique hotel is spread over two stately Victorian townhouses on opposite sides of the road: Dunstane House and Hampton House. Inspired by the best of modern-day Scotland, both houses combine heritage good looks with warm, personal service and a fresh, contemporary outlook. The bedrooms and interiors in both Dunstane House and Hampton House have all been stylishly redesigned and refurbished to pay tribute to the building’s neoclassical character and the owners’ Orcadian heritage, without compromising on modern comfort. Within easy reach of all the attractions of old-town Edinburgh, the Dunstane Houses is a stylish and and welcoming city retreat with an authentic Scottish Soul.

Hotel's Favorite
A beautiful property in Edinburgh's west end just minutes from Haymarket, and 10 to Princess St. We had a wonderful welcome from owner Shirley who checked us in and showed us our beautifully presented room, a seem less process, nice touches in our room which would grace a larger style 5 star hotel, Nespresso coffee, comfy bathrobes and slipers, and shower products etc... Luxury feel in the Ba'Bar where we had first class cocktails served, this extends to front lounge / dining area where meals are served all day, dinner on both nights were in central Edinburgh but goodness do they serve an excellent breakfast, for some reason I cannot up the photos but trust me the the Greek sundae is out of this world, ordered both days and the full Scottish is to be commended, All this is served by the wonderfull French Claire whom along with owner Shirley totally spoiled us us over a 2 night stay, hopefully be back soon. Sorry, forgot ideal car parking at the rear of the property, which can be a pain to find in Edinburgh, definitely will return 10/10 !

We came to visit the university and were recommended to stay at the Dunstane Houses by a friend. We loved the strong sense of place and style aesthetic, and the warm welcome from Shirley, Derek and their team. We will definitely be looking for an excuse to return.

We stayed for 3 nights with our dog in the Hampton House. Our room was very comfortable and our dog was provided with his own bed and a box of goodies on arrival. All the staff, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, were very attentive and happy to deal with any requests. The breakfasts were excellent as were our evening meals. We were also struck by the cleanliness in our room and throughout the hotel. We would recommend a stay at this hotel which is very well located for exploring the city. Walking into the city was easy and there is a good bus service with stops outside the hotel. We hope to return one day.
