Part of successfully running a luxury boutique hotel in Edinburgh is being consistent, from the service you provide to the food you serve, and of course, the design of each room in the hotel.

Having just successfully completed a full refurbishment at The Hampton House, we’re delighted to have just been awarded 5* status by Visit Scotland!

The design of both The Hampton House and of course The Dunstane are both now 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  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.

If you’d like to find out more about our refurbishment then please click here. Otherwise, we’re absolutely delighted to have The Hampton House join The Dunstane with 5 stars of it’s own.

We’d also like to Congratulate our very own Laura Hood for winning Housekeeper of the year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2019.
