Hotel Description

Just ten minutes to the west of Edinburgh’s city center is a hotel that’s hardly a hotel at all. The Dunstane Houses are a pair of Victorian-era neoclassical houses, divided into a total of 35 rooms. We’ve seen smaller, to be sure, but it’s rare that a city hotel room so perfectly captures the atmosphere of a bedroom in a classic country house. The proprietors are from Orkney, and they’ve brought as much of the charm of the Northern Isles with them as they could — the only thing missing is an ocean view.

The houses, recently renovated, date back to the 1860s, and while they’re well-preserved, the hoteliers haven’t been fussy about the interiors. The look is contemporary-luxe rather than strictly period-correct, which is all to the good — and the comforts are first-rate, from handmade Vispring beds and Noble Isle bath products to smart TVs and free wi-fi. Book a “wee double” if all you need is a plush-but-cozy place to hang your hat, or upgrade to a suite if you’d like a freestanding tub in your capacious bedroom.

A hotel on this scale could get by with little more than an honesty bar, but Dunstane House’s Ba’Bar is a proper all-day lounge, with a voluminous whisky cabinet and a long list of artisan gins, as well as a kitchen serving modern Scottish cuisine, from Orkney scallops to Cullen Skink.
