...but was not particularly special. Our room was comfortable although the shower seemed on the very small side. Breakfasts were quite ordinary. Our host did providecexcellent dining recommendations, and was helpful in directing us to Rosslyn chapel and on to St. Andrews. Review may be colored by the fact that I did not particularly like Edinburgh!

The Dunedin B&B is conveniently located in a quiet side street, 2 minutes from bus stop for a quick ride or walk (1.5 miles) into Edinburgh. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast delicious, and the hosts welcoming an helpful. Also walking distance to Holyrood park and pubs/restaurants. A great base for exploring Edinburgh.

This was my second visit to the Dunedin Guest House having stayed here 2 years ago with 3 girl friends. We were so impressed we decided to come back this year only this time we brought another 9 friends taking over all but the one remaining single bed room! This gave me the opportunity to view all of the rooms....

We stayed here for three nights in late July. The room was nicely sized for three (me, my wife and daughter) but we were fine with the spiral stairs which might be an issue for some. David was an excellent host and the breakfasts were great. On a later pass through Edinburgh we stayed in a modern hotel in New...

Only stayed one night but wished we had booked for two. This Guest House is well run by David and his wife who are a lovely couple and they deserve their four star rating. The house is Victorian and has all the Scottish features from that period including a pitch pine staircase and decorative plaster on the walls. Our twin...

Our room was large and very comfortable.(three beds for only two people). The king bed was very comfortable. The breakfast room was beautiful. The breakfast was served quickly and was delicious. It was convenient to downtown bus routes. An excellent choice in Edinburgh

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.”
