    What can I say...? Great ambience, great hosts, great pricing. I went through a lot of options for Edinburgh before talking to Richard, and he gave us a good deal. The good deal became even better when we landed up after a full day's drive...More

    I was not impressed. Richard was generally unavailable, and unhelpful. We had grown accustomed to great service while traveling in Ireland and Scotland and were disappointed with the service and uncomfortable beds.

    About a 20 minute walk to the city center, Dorstan House was a convenient and comfortable base to explore Edinburgh. Richard and Maki were genial hosts and prepared the best English breakfast during our travels. We highly recommend Dorstan House and hope to return soon.
