Excellent hotel with friends helpful staff ”

Pool was cold and you need 1 extra person to clear tables in breakfast room, that would clear the long cue for breakfast at the weekend .Also only for your Christmas tree in the lobby Edinburgh has no Christmas atmosphere what so ever ,No lights on royal mile and only for food market on princess street there are no lights anywhere. Edinburgh is supposed to be noted for Christmas lights, you need to come to Galway ,killarney or any city or town in Ireland to experience Christmas. Very disappointed .city council you need to get your act together.

Great hotel, gym/pool good, but 2 bad points.”

The hotel was a great location, nice room and very comfy bed. The gym and pool was great addition with breakfast included. 2 things that let it down was the tea and coffee came after finishing breakfast after asking all 4 staff for this while waiting which I couldnt understand as I was polite, and the sauna out of use but not a major. Overall, nice place, live Edinburgh and friendly staff on arrival.

Nothing but praise for the reception and staff at Macdonald Holyrood, they let us store our luggage 3 days prior to staying there while we did a 3 day tour of the Isle of Skye. 5 stars
