Edinburgh’s Dunstane Houses is delighted to announce that the hotel has, once again, been recognised by TripAdvisor in their annual Travellers’ Choice Awards.

Based on traveller reviews, ratings and saves from around the world, Trip Advisor’s annual Best of the Best awards celebrate venues of outstanding merit and customer service and now place The Dunstane Houses amongst the top 10% of hotels worldwide.

Upon receipt of the award, owner of the Dunstane Houses, Shirley Mowat, commented: “We are delighted to receive this award as recognition of our team’s hard work and dedication over the course of the last year. Whilst these last months have been challenging, we are so grateful to have been able to reopen our doors and welcome back friends of the Dunstane Houses once again”.

The awards come just a month after the Dunstane Houses reopened on the 15 July. Spread between two recently restored Victorian townhouses, the hotel’s 35 rooms and suites celebrate the owners’ Orcadian heritage and the hotel’s location in neoclassical Edinburgh.
