I stayed here in late April as part of an organised group who took over a large part of what is a small hotel. I cant be sure but the hotel probably went out of their way to accommodate us because some of us ended up in the attic flat which is three bedrooms ( double/twin ) and two toilets... More

I booked this hotel for a group of 12 cyclists doing the Coast and Castles Bike Ride. The Hotel were very accommodating agreeing to store our bikes in the function room over night and then filling our water bottles for us the following morning. On arrival they gave us a table in the restaurant and took our orders so it... More

There were good and less-good things about the Royal Mackintosh. First the good: 1) Location - you can literally roll out of the station and hit this hotel. Very convenient - especially if you're catching a late train in to Dunbar. 2) Staff were very friendly 3) Free Wifi was fast and easy to access 4) The dining room where... More

A very friendly hotel with lovely staff. Nice food always served hot. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable bed and wifi was available. Nice walks nearby. For the hotel I would suggest adjust or fit new soft close to front door as its very noisy. More coffee pots needed instead of top-ups would be good.

This is a lovely small hotel in the seaside town of Dunbar. I stayed here because I wanted an affordable trip to Edinburgh, and quickly realised I could have a much better standard of accommodation for a much lower price than anything available at shortish notice in the city itself, by staying here. The town is a pleasant 20-30 minute... More

Service and breakfast was very good although you have to keep asking for refill of coffee, why don`t they leave a... More

Stayed here with my wife late March. It was a Classic Britain 2 nights for 1 deal. The hotel itself is an older building, I imagine over 100 years old, and this is reflected a bit in the hotel interior. Nothing bad, just a little olde worlde, and a little faded. All members of staff we met were polite and... More
