Experience the best The Dunstane Houses has to offer with our Ultimate Dunstane Night In.
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 was important that the design reflects everything The Dunstane Houses are about.
Having just finished decorating The Stroma Lounge, we’re delighted with how it looks; 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.
Using a combination of rich blues, various shades of cream, a hint of yellow in places, beautiful artwork and stained wood, we believe The Stroma Lounge 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.
The addition of 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.
