This is an excellent hotel. From checking in to out, it was a pleasure. We stayed in the Anex across the road. Which I must say was perfect. Accommodation very clean. Petite room adequate for our 2 day stay. Bus stop right outside. Though to be honest we taxied, which wasn't expensive I loved that we had a dining room...

Spent the weekend here for my birthday and they were kind enough to upgrade my room. Was absolutely perfect. The room was immaculate. Little details like the classic style telephone, radio and bathroom luxuries made it even more enjoyable. The receptionists were extremely helpful and assisted us with the best route into town (a mere 15 minute walk or by...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dunstane dates all the way back to 1852 to a design of William Playfair, one of Edinburgh's most famous architects. Now a boutique hotel privately-owned and managed by Derek and Shirley Mowat, each of our bedrooms offers a fresh take on country house charm. You can look forward to restful nights in four-poster beds with subtle accents of current style. Or stretch out king-size and enjoy all the period details and in-room features. ... more   less
