We booked one of the Luxury rooms for our stay over New Yer and it certainly was Luxury. We arrived early and the hotel kindly allowed us to leave our bags and then have breakfast before embarking on our trip into town. It is a very nice 20 minute walk into the city centre and at no point over the...

What a chilled out hotel with friendly staff and top quality standards. Location is excellent in that there is a bus stop outside the door (going to/from airport and City)and it is an easy 15 min walk into town. The rooms are tastefully designed, lovely temperature, quality towels/robes and Molten Brown products, great expresso m/c, kettle and tea cakes -...

Wow! What a great place to stay. Rooms were cosy and beautifully appointed, and the staff were so friendly. Breakfast, which we got with our room, was amazing--both hot and cold items, including a full Scottish breakfast if you could handle it! The bar was a lovely spot for a nightcap at the end of a great day of sightseeing....

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
