We spent three nights at the Dunedin and Tony and Mary are adorable people always ready to help. The place is beautiful and well kept. It's located at about a twenty minutes walk from the old town in a nice neighboorhood. We really enjoyed staying there and will do the next time we come.

We stayed for 3 nights in Room 3. The following om was very small, the shower was barely adequate and more akin to a sauna, as the radiator was on 24/7. The double bed mattress felt worn and over-soft. We chose this as it was close to the city centre and we didn't expect to spend much time in the... More

A charming and restful stay in Edinburgh during the festival. Great breakfasts, very comfortable single room, and the owners are warm and welcoming. They made my stay very enjoyable and I will be back to stay at Dunedin Guest House.

My wife and I recently stayed for four nights and had a great time. The proprietors are super friendly. The room was very nice; spacious, clean and quiet. Breakfasts are good here, with a full selection of the usual suspects. The Dunedin is just outside city center, in an area where there are a lot of B&Bs, but that is... More

Absolut fantastic. Very easy to find from Airpoort, short way to City by bus. Very helpful and friendly. They explained us exactly where parking the car is allowed so we won't get a ticket. The breakfast was rich. A must try when in Edinburgh.

This was our last stop in a 3-week trip and we found it to be a nice spot to wind down our travels. The location is located within 2 blocks of a busy bus stop, so we never had any challenge in finding our way to and from city center and attractions. Additionally, the walk from Holyrood back to Dunedin... More

Breakfast timings odd- earlier on sun than through week. We arrived down in time for breakfast at 9.30( latest timing) on sun but were give 1/4 piece of toast each with breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dunedin Guest House is a semi-detached Victorian Villa located on a large sunny corner with gardens and a lovely view of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags. Built as a family home in 1882, the three-story house was divided into two homes in the 1950s and returned to a single dwelling around late 1980s. Sympathetically converted into the present accommodations, the house is a listed building and therefore retains such original features as a magnificently lit cupola that dominates the central staircase and gives the house an airy spaciousness. Other original features are the mosaic-tiled entrance and vestibule, ornate cornices and a spectacular plasterwork thistle ceiling in the breakfast room. Original woodwork prevails throughout the guestrooms, as well, with massive Canadian pine doors, paneling and dados. ... more   less

“We had a room on the front side, and there was an excellent view of Arthur's Seat. One tip is use the room darkening shades. In the summer it gets light very early and if it is clear the sun is very bright.”

“Second floor rooms had views of roof tops, which was interesting to me. I think we were in room 5 at the top of the stairs. I think there was a third floor, which might have been more interesting yet if you are able to schlep your baggage up there.”
