Heathery tones and tweedy fabrics bring a breath of fresh Orkney air to this family-owned hotel, in a peaceful area just beyond the city centre. It occupies two recently refurbished Victorian villas – Dunstane House, and Hampton House, opposite. From ‘cosy wee singles and doubles’ to luxurious, high-ceilinged suites, bedrooms are kitted out in heritage style and supplied with pampering Scottish products and home-made shortbread. In Ba’ Bar, find monochrome photographs and a wide selection of rare and vintage craft spirits; in the clubby lounge, velvet armchairs and sofas. A short menu of unfussy modern Scottish dishes is available all day. Buses to the centre and the airport stop right outside. This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain.

Good Hotel Guide articles about The Dunstane Houses
With half term breaks restricted and the weather turning increasingly soggy; Edinburgh’s Dunstane Houses have been busy working their magic to save the day for families across the country. From the 19 October – 20 December, the hotel will be offering a dedicated family-friendly glamping experience featuring in-room, bespoke tents filled with goodies and an explorers’ backpack full of activities, bubbles, and an activity book all hidden inside – plus of course duvets and pillows for bedtime too. Over the course of the two-night stay, families can enjoy a Hallowe’en-inspired afternoon tea with themed treats and frighteningly good hot drinks before retreating to their room for a Hallowe’en classic on the small screen. The next day, families are invited to make the most of the unusual tranquillity of our city’s attractions – Edinburgh Zoo, the Castle, Dynamic Earth, the Botanic Gardens, one of the city’s many museums – before returning for dinner where the kids eat free! The ‘Ghouls and Glamping’ experience starts from £298 per night (saving up to 50% per family) on a bed & breakfast basis based on two adults and two children including a Dunstane kids’ tent, duvet and pillows; dinner for all one evening (under-10s dine free for dinner and breakfast); afternoon tea; a kids’ backpack (one per child); tickets and access to one of the attractions listed above; complimentary parking and welcome hot chocolate. Offer is valid for stays through 20 December. Must be booked by 5 November. An additional £20 supplement is applicable for Saturday night stays. Please mention the Good Hotel Guide when booking.
