Formerly the Dustane House Hotel, the Dunstane is a boutique property within the heart of Edinburgh. Combining contemporary and period decor, the hotel offers a variety of accommodation styles in 38 individually styled rooms, including Family Rooms. These spacious rooms features a sitting area with sleeper sofa for children. Outside of these Family Rooms, choices include double or twin rooms, which accommodate only one or two people, so if a sofa bed is not ideal for your needs, you will need to book separate rooms for your family. Onsite dining can be enjoyed at Skerries Restaurant.

When looking for a place to stay we wanted more of a homey feeling than a big hotel and the Dunstane House fit perfectly. We could not have asked for more from our stay. From the beautiful decor and wonderful staff everything was perfect. They really seem to think of everything you would need to make you feel at home. Although our room was small as we got the wee double it was not lacking in anything. I loved the decorating in all the rooms and the smell coming in the front door. All the staff went out of their way to make our stay the best we could ask for. The owner was present and very helpful as well. While it could have been closer to some attractions it was well worth the short travel (about 15 minutes by cab) to stores and restaurants. There also is a bus stop right out front. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Dunstane Houses is a luxurious gem a bit outside the most central places - which is actually great. The personnel is very nice and taking care of you the exact right amount you expect it to be. Honestly worth a visit.
