Dunedin Guest House was our first stop in the UK after a transatlantic flight and we were given a warm welcome by David and allowed to check in at 9 am. Since we were two couples he recommended a taxi to go downtown as it was less expensive than four bus fares. Our rooms on the 1st floor were well...

...but definitely not our last! We found this place via Rick Steves, then did verification via Trip Advisor. While the house is not close to the Royal Mile, the bus system was easy to use and cost-efficient. Rooms lovely and very clean; breakfast was delicious every day. We are now back home and I miss someone bringing me a pot...

This is a great place to visit. This was our second trip to Edinburgh and we could not think of any other place to stay. The hospitality and service are excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable. You are just a short bus ride to the Royal Mile and all of the attractions there.

We enjoyed our stay do the guesthouse. We stayed during the w-end and we're happy to park the car for free in front of the house and walk to the city or with bus on rainy day. We were happy to enjoy this place outside the noisy and some unsafe areas in the city. The room was nice, with all...

Spent three nights here and have no complaints. The inn is located about a block from several bus lines that take you right into the middle of the Royal Mile or to the Grassmarket district. Had a twin room. It was spacious and comfortable; the bathroom had lots of handy hooks to hang towels and other items. The proprietor was...

I can verify the comments below. We have been staying in B&B’s on Priestfield Road for 7 years. A great place to be whilst our daughter was at University here, walking distance to Pollock Halls and Arthur’s Seat. I have also walked into the city from here but there is a good bus service at the end of the road....

As ever we had a lovely stay at Dunedin. This was our third stay here in a year and the hospitality was as good as ever, a fabulous breakfast and a really warm welcome. We stayed for two nights in the double room at the front which has a lovely view across to Arthur's Seat. The B&B is a short...

Perfectly located guesthouse with excellent hosts. Very welcoming and willing to help with any requests large or small. The cooked breakfasts were freshly prepared and tasty. Hearty enough to keep you going for most of the day. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling to this part of Scotland.

We stayed here for 4 nights while exploring Edinburgh and area. We had one of the family rooms as we were traveling with our infant son. Our room was large, and at the top of the stairs. It was tastefully decorated and spacious. Our bathroom was good, although there was only a shower. The owners are lovely and have a...

We stayed at the Dunedin House for 3 nights in early August. We had a great visit to Edinburgh. The Dunedin House is in a great location. We took the bus and taxi into the center of downtown. Very easy for either. David is a great host and serves a good breakfast. Parking is challenging if you drive. But, our...

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.”
