Dunstane Hotels comprise two Victorian properties which face each other on either side of West Coates in Edinburgh’s leafy West End.
The four star Dunstane House Hotel started life as a private home and today’s owners try to retain that home from home feel for the guests who stay in its sixteen rooms. A magnificent mansion house, built in 1852 with original fireplaces, wood panelling, stained glass windows and spectacular ornate cornices.
Designed to have the comfort and elegance of a Scottish country house but with Edinburgh’s city centre reassuringly close by, the bedrooms at Dunstane House are individually designed but all feature little luxuries like Molton Brown products in the bathroom, soft plaid throws at the end of the bed and rich tweed upholstery.
The eighteen-room, four star Dunstane City Hotel is nearby on the opposite side of the road from Dunstane House but it feels rather different. Guests can expect a luxury chic hotel with a smart, contemporary look with large flat screen TVs. Dunstane City has its own bar with a range of malt whiskies, as well as a garden conservatory.
Both hotels share The Skerries restaurant and The Stane Whisky Bar. The Skerries specializes in the best natural produce from Orkney including the Scottish islands’ finest meats and seafood. Your big Deal includes a three course dinner from the a la carte menu in the restaurant. Both hotels have free car parking and wi-fi.
With Edinburgh on your doorstep, there is no shortage of fun ways to spend the day.
