Edinburgh hotel achieves star rating

Published on : Wednesday, July 11, 2018

unnamedA boutique hotel offering a breath of fresh Orkney air in the heart of Edinburgh has achieved the highest Quality Assurance (QA) grading from VisitScotland.

 

Dunstane House, situated in the Haymarket area of Edinburgh, recently received a 5-Star Quality Assurance award from the national tourism organisation in recognition of its exceptional standards.

 

The award-winning historic mid-19th-century hotel offers 16 newly refurbished bedrooms each uniquely styled to balance timeless tradition and modern comfort. Honouring the owners’ Orkney Islands roots whilst highlighting the building’s Victorian history, interior designer, Hannah Lohan,has created a contemporary urban sanctuary with an authentic Scottish soul. Subtly mixing the old and the new, the hotel’s evocative interiors combine the neoclassical design of old-town Edinburgh with a modern approach to pared-down luxury, creating the welcoming feel of a country house hotel; close to the action but away from the bustle.

 

Throughout the hotel, artworks curated by local artist, Nicky Brooks, of the iconic Red Door Gallery on Edinburgh’s Victoria Street, depict scenes of Edinburgh and Orkney whilst the carefully considered all-day dining menu served in the lounge offers residents and locals the finest Scottish produce with signature dishes including Cullen Skink, Crispy Ayrshire Clash Farm Pork Belly, Tender Seared Orkney Scallops and the Dunstane’s own Whisky-Slaked Cranachan.

 

Developed and improved for over 30 years, Visit Scotland’s Quality Assurance Schemes are world-leading and provide a trusted, independent and impartial source of information for visitors. They allow businesses not just to meet visitor expectations, but to exceed them.

 

VisitScotland Industry Relationship Manager, Alasdair Maclauchlan said: “Dunstane House is a fantastic example of the quality experience on offer to people staying in Edinburgh. I would like to extend my congratulations to the team on this achievement.

 

“Our Quality Assurance scheme helps businesses to reach their full potential and truly shine. The scheme is about more than just the ‘stars’ on the door – it’s about the entire visitor experience, about investing in your business, driving-up quality and creating jobs.

 

“Delivering a quality experience that meets, and exceeds, visitor expectations is crucial in making Scotland a must-visit, must-return destination.”
