This is a great hotel for anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Dunbar. There is limited parking at the venue but plenty in nearby streets. The hotel is based on main high street. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable. The rooms are a great size and bed are really comfortable. The breakfast is... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Royal Mackintosh in Dunbar! Everyone there was very accommodating. The rooms were very large and comfortable. Be sure to ask the innkeeper about the unique history of the hotel.

The staff were really pleasant and helpful. Our room was large, clean and airy. The bathroom had an excellent shower. Breakfast was very nice and served with a smile. Food in the restaurant was pleasant and reasonably priced. The little bar provided all our requirements for refreshment!

Only stayed one night whilst visiting some customer sites in Scotland. Room was basic but clean & comfortable and in a quiet location, overlooking the street but not too busy. Didn't eat at the hotel other than breakfast, although a lot of people were eating in the small bar area. Friendly welcome on arrival, was shown personally up to the... More

All in all a reasonable stay over for one night. Friendly and efficient greeting on arrival Not the sharpest of decor but quality comes with price and, at this price who can complain? Breakfast wasn't wonderful though. Too much grease and water on the plate from the haggis and mushrooms which ran into everything else on the plate. The room... More

Arrived late and after a rather sluggish check in the hotel staff were most understanding of our need for a late night wind down. Particularly appreciated was the arrangement made for our group of nine to be made an early breakfast (full cooked) before our early train back to London. Thank you!
