HIGHLY RECOMMENDED stay in one of THE great cities
Extra helpful - upgraded the room with a glass of champagne as it was our 30th wedding anniversary. Service first class. Decor was modern and classy and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Evening meal was excellent and even better value using the Tastecard discount. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. PS - the bed was sumptuous.

Great for the Fringe and Tattoo
3 couples visiting the Edinburgh Fringe for the third time. Heavy itinerary so location, comfort and a good breakfast was very important. Ticked all the boxes. The staff were very helpful and welcoming.

Vising Edinburgh Fringe
We stayed in the Macdonald Holyrood hotel whilst visiting the Edinburgh Fringe (4 days). We found the hotel staff very friendly, rooms very comfortable (Only issue we found was the water going hot and cold in the shower when using on a morning this why we scored the hotel condition a 4 everything else we scored a 5), breakfast was really nice and the location ideal when returning from the fringe late at night. (All down hill). I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Edinburgh. We will certainly be returning again for the fringe and this hotel will be at the top of our list.
