Part of successfully running a luxury boutique hotel in Edinburgh is being consistent, from the service you provide to the food, and of course, the design of each room in the hotel. With this in mind, we’re delighted to be coming to an end of refurbishments at The Hampton House and we are very pleased with the result.

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. With such a rich history it is important that the design of our buildings reflects everything The Dunstane Houses are about.

We’re delighted with the design of both The Hampton House and of course The Dunstane; characterful and evocative, inspired by the neoclassical design of old-town Edinburgh, the Dunstane Houses’ rich history, and our own Orcadian roots. Uniquely styled to balance timeless tradition and modern comfort.

 

These Hampton House rooms are great for a short stay in the city with each room being very newly refurbished, there’s free WiFi, a smart TV, bottled water and Noble Isle toiletries, plus a kettle and Nespresso machine – all the necessities for a well-earned break.

The Stroma Lounge in The Hampton House truly reflects our style and gives our guests a warm and inviting place to relax with their meal or with their dram of an evening. Using a combination of rich blues, various shades of cream, a hint of yellow in places, beautiful artwork and stained wood.

The addition to that, our honesty bar in the shape of a Vintage Fridge Company piece is a stunning focal point of the room – unique and made just for us by this wonderful company who take traditional ice boxes (ours is Brazilian!) and make them into working fridges.
