Great stay at the holyrood hotel
Lianne , Lancashire
Hotel located at the bottom of the royal mile round the corner from Scotland parliament and Holyrood palace. This location is ideal for exploring Edinburgh centre and surrounding area. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the service is great. Lovely rooms very modern and spacious they even have a Nescafe coffee maker in the rooms. The bed was really comfy and I had the best nights sleep. I requested a free upgrade if possible on the enquiry form and when we arrived they did just that. The breakfast was lovely and quick service. Overall had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend.
The best thing about my stay was...The location and facilities

Lovely hotel, had a great stay with the family. Staff brilliant!!
Caroline , Liverpool
I don't normally post many reviews about hotels I have stayed in however I felt the need to comment on the Macdonald Hotel in Holyrood as we had a fantastic stay over the weekend with family. I stayed with my 7 year old son and the staff were fantastic as soon as we arrived. Both the concierge and porter (William) were so welcoming and hospitable and nothing was a problem. The hotel room was lovely, very spacious and light (room 319) with a lovely bathroom, comfortable bed etc. We ate in the restaurant for the summer menu which was £15 for 3 courses. This is the only thing that could have been better as the waiters got a couple of things wrong and the burgers were quite hard. Pool area was lovely and the staff in the spa area were again very welcoming to us and friendly. Breakfast was lovley and again the staff were great with the children.
The best thing about my stay was...Staff as soon as you entered the hotel were very friendly and welcoming.

An enjoyable stay but avoid room 1!
Regina Wojciechowska, Nottingham
Stayed 2 nights at the Macdonald Hotel, excellent service at reception and from staff at breakfast. Room comfortable but avoid room 1 as it looks out onto the car park and is next to the rear entrance for staff and has numerous air conditioning units etc so there was a constant humming noise making it difficult to sleep.

Lovely hotel in central location
Claudine Brindle, Dumfries
The hotel was lovely, very helpful staff. Room was large and clean. Leisure facilities were very good and the breakfast was top class. The only negative was the television - no flat screen and terrible picture. Not that we watched much television on our visit!
The best thing about my stay was...Lovely hotel, breakfast and leisure facilities

.....if you think this hotel is great - it's a rip off. I have never been so dissapointed by a facade of elegance which is confounded by avarice and greed. A twentieth century hotel masquerading as a luxury hotel and little to offer except an empty wallet and a depressed heart. No WiFi, 1980's TV, poor satellite choice, extortionate bar prices, sub pub type restaurant at inflated prices, breakfast orders wrong two days in succession. Lazy, complacent , incompetent management living off cattle class coach trips and a location anyone with half a business brain would drool over. Wake up people - it's rubbish and admit you were ripped off.
The best thing about my stay was...leaving
