    Service was excellent(especially Gary and Gemma) Food was extremely good. Room was luxurious and very comfortable.

    Staff was very friendly, they remembered our name (our son and his wife stayed there 2 years ago). The boy in black (at the bar) in particular was a very nice young man. Bus-stop in front of the hotel (from the airport and to Edinburgh citycenter) was ideal.

    We Dutch would have liked some cheese or sliced ham with our breakfast; other than that the breakfast was very good.

    We loved the fact that the airport bus stop is at the front door! It was easy to walk to the center of the city too. The hotel was comfortable and clean, and warm!

    The bathroom was very small. I did not like the orange juice at breakfast, not a good brand, and the coffee was dreadful.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were extremely helpful and polite. The room was well-appointed and its location on the bus route between the airport and the city centre made for easy travel arrangements throughout our stay.

  • Group of friends

    The Dunstane is a small and intimate hotel. My friends and I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The rooms had character - this is a listed building - and were kept spotlessly clean. The airport bus stops directly outside the hotel and other buses stop there for a short ride into Princes St and beyond.

    Didn't like the coffee arrangement at breakfast where a cup was poured and you have to ask for a second one. I prefer a pot.

    The staff and the hotel are the best nothing too much trouble and close to centre

    10.0

    Food at the restaurant-bar located at the hotel (Skerries) was top- notch, and the service was always with a smile.

    While having the keys on a tassled keychain are difficult to misplace, it is a bit bulky to carry around Edinburgh in your pants pocket all day. Luckily I had a coat with zippered pockets to store it in while I was seeing the tourist attractions.

    Vicinity to Murrayfield for the rugby match, hotel was very welcoming to rugby fans
