Staff excellent. Perfectly located. Not stupid prices either. Nicely appointed rooms if would have happily stayed much longer than the two days. Only one minor thing. Mini bar still had the last visitors strawberries in it... As I say minor. The breakfast was perfect.

Excellent hotel, and great staff. It was a great experience from the moment we dropped off the car with the concierge, to leaving yesterday. The rooms are lovely, the bathroom had the fluffiest towel's i have seen in a hotel for many a year! Breakfast was excellent, and Sunday lunch at Caleys fantastic. All in all a fantastic experience.

We stayed for the night after attending a function in Windsor. It was our second visit to the MacDonald - and this time the dog came with us! The hotel is directly opposite the castle, and our room had splendid views of the Round Tower. Rooms are contemporary and spacious with high spec bathrooms. The bar is comfortable and inviting...
