The Dunstane Houses

With running a 5-star luxury boutique hotel, we are all about giving our guest a truly exceptional, authentic Scottish experience and we work hard all year round to make sure we achieve this. We’ve undergone huge renovations over the past few years and refined our products and processes based on what we think our guests would enjoy the most. As a result, we’ve had a fantastic year for awards and nominations.

This year at the annual Catering in Scotland Excellence Awards we’re delighted to have been shortlisted for the Independent Hotel of the Year 2018 and are very proud of our very own operations manager, Samantha Wright, taking The Employee of the Year Award 2018.

We’ve been nominated and won several other awards so far this year and if you’d like to find out more, please click here. 

We can’t wait to see what the future holds for our hotel.
