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.

This Georgian era townhome made for a delightful afternoon. Here's what you might want to know:
-If coronovirus is still an issue, call to be sure they are open
-Friendly, knowledgable staff in each room (If it's not busy, ask each one to 'give you the grand tour' -you'll learn a lot more than reading the printed card in each...
This is a very impressive church with 3 spires. In the new town so about 10 minutes walk from Princess Street. It as the most fabulous alter. Large cavernous interior but some may find quite dark. Nice selection of stained glass windows.
The Great hall certainly is a marvel of the old era...The wooden roof is a splendor in itself...It is displaying weapons and armors reminiscent of its glorious military past..It is located in the crown square of the castle..a tic is needed to visualize its splendor..
Lochrin is a small area in Edinburgh. It is in the south-west corner of the city centre, in a very tranquil setting in the heart of Fountainbridge in Edinburgh. When the basins at the eastern end of the Union Canal were filled in and the canal truncated in 1921, Lochrin Basin became its eastern terminus. There are canal barges which...

Absolute golden experience. The welcome we recieved was second to none, staff extremely courteous, service remarkable, food and drinks impeccable. We will be back sooner rather than later. Thank you Dine
We were here for a short break. Decided we wanted an indian read a few reviews on line this came up tops.
Food was great as a person who doesnt like too much sauce i found a dish for me and very tasty it was too. Staff were really polite We will definatly be back next time we visit Edingburgh.
Amazing accommodation would highly recommend and will definitely stay here again in the future. Location was great so easily accessible into the city and every aspect of hotel was perfect myself and my friends absolutely loved our stay here.
Stayed here for 2 nights when attending a wedding in Edinburgh. We had a “bigger” room which had plenty storage. The technology including using your iPhone to control the Tv, lights and A/C is pretty cool. The shower was great. The room was spotless. The staff were great. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
Due to COVID 19 we had to cancel our booking and this hotel kindly refunded the full amount. We will definitely be booking and staying with them once travel is allowed and safe again. We travel to Edinburgh at least yearly and wish everyone well
And the winner is……
The ultimate quality winner is: The Dunstane Houses – Hampton House located in Edinburgh Scotland.
The hotel deserves and gets my personal 5 star rating.
For those of you, following my reviews on Trip-Advisor regularly, you know I only post reviews when the hotel is simply outstanding or totally disappointing. The rest is middle of the...
Enjoyed our week in Edinburgh, but found the partial kitchen inconvenient. Although this is a luxury hotel there was no restaurant - any food ordered was delivered to the room.
(We were also unlucky that the refurbishment works were just starting and we were woken by scaffolders working directly outside the window.)
However the Residence was full of elegance, beautifully...
