Murrayfield Stadium Hotels
Murrayfield Hotels don’t get much better… or closer!
It’s a name to stir the spirit of any rugby fan – Murrayfield. It’s the scene for international fixtures as the rugby might of the Scottish national team take on England, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy in the annual Six Nations Championship. From Dunstane you can enjoy a match day lunch and then walk the short distance to the ground to cheer on your team.
Murrayfield Stadium is less than half a mile from The Dunstane Hotels.
Murrayfield is home to the Scottish national team’s matches in the Six Nations and other international Test Matches. It is also home to Edinburgh Rugby, who play in the Magners Celtic League and Heineken Cup.
Murrayfield Stadium has a capacity of 67,130 making it the largest stadium in Scotland. Murrayfield was opened in 1925, with the first visitors, England, defeated on the way to Scotland’s first Five Nations Grand Slam. In 1975, Scotland v Wales attracted a crowd of around 104,000 – then a record for a rugby match.
Murrayfield has hosted selected rugby matches such as the Rugby World Cup and the Rugby Heineken Cup Finals.
Both Dunstane Hotels are ideal locations to stay close to the ground, but also close to the excitement (and the pubs) of Edinburgh’s city centre.
