Travellers' 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.

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.

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.
