Shirley was the host of dreams, and our stay at the Dunstane houses for our wedding was a dream from start to finish. We had a quiet elopement (just the two of us) and stayed in the Ronaldsay suite for four nights of royal treatment which were the nicest hotel experience of our lives. From the impeccable decor to the dreamy bedding, the delicious breakfasts, the incredibly kind help and thoughtful details like complimentary shortbread, a fruit plate, chocolates and champagne—Shirley and the entire team at Dunstane Houses were just wonderful. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars in every respect. I had to get my wedding dress steamed after our flight and dry-cleaned after a day of traipsing around Edinburgh, and in both instances the team were able to organise that no problem. Room service drinks were left in our suite upon our return with kind messages from family written out beside them. The bedding was the best we’ve ever felt and the seasonal decorations were wonderful. As others have mentioned, the smell in the hallway was absolutely divine (I only wish I’d remembered to ask the specific scent!) and the toiletries by the same company are really luxurious. With regards to Covid, every care was taken and there was no more interaction than necessary in terms of social distancing, and the atmosphere remained warm and relaxed despite everything. Shirley was able to arrange taxis for us as well, and was so warm and friendly with every assistance she could provide. I honestly can’t recommend this hotel highly enough, and can’t wait to return for many anniversaries to come!…

Home from home with warm, cosy vibe, friendly and efficient service, great beds and excellent breakfast. Loved the interior design, beautiful high ceilings and contemporary colours. We loved the smell of the hotel as soon as we entered with lit candles and Noble Isle amenities.
What a wonderful stay! From the excellent service, food, treat package, room and friendly staff! Would definitely recommend this fantastic place. Thank you to all in Dunstane House who made it so special.
We stayed on The Ultimate Night In package and it was amazing! The room was beautiful and so clean. Everything looked new and of really good quality. We had a tray of crisps, nuts, sweets and even a bottle of gin with various tonics in our room, then a fabulous four-course meal in the lovely restaurant. Breakfast was also amazing the next day. The staff were friendly and welcoming and we will definitely be back.
