The spirit of Orkney, the heart of Edinburgh….
Refined, relaxed, a little romantic and a lot luxurious, The Dunstane Houses is an independent, family-run, five-star boutique hotel, over 2 Victorian townhouses set across the road from each other, that offer guests the best of the Scottish capital. Set in two newly refurbished heritage buildings quite unlike anywhere you’ve ever stayed before, The Dunstane Houses is a breath of fresh Orkney air in the heart of Edinburgh.
The Dunstane Houses have stood at the gateway to old-town Edinburgh since the 1860s. Variously occupied by merchants, musicians, doctors, distillers, bankers and newspapermen over the last 150 years, they have witnessed the evolution of modern-day Edinburgh. Today, these historic buildings form two halves of a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel: a relaxing, contemporary sanctuary that blends the story of the capital with the Orkney roots of its owners – a stylish and welcoming city retreat with an authentic Scottish soul.
