The Royal Mac provided the bar for our wedding reception and Hannah, who organised it all for us was fantastic. She helped us in whatever way she could, going above and beyond throughout the planning and on the night itself, staying behind long after the guests left to help us tidy up. We also stayed in the hotel on our... More

Had a lovely weekend away at the mackintosh hotel, staff were friendly and always happy to help. Food was great, lots to choose from, chef even made some exceptions to cater for my husbands dietary requirements. Rooms were nice, good value for money and very clean. Will definitely be back, couldn't fault it 10/10!

Having walked the John Muir way this was the final night, situated close to rail station in the town. Great breakfast and good bar. But room is in need of refurbishment with lights not working and door not locking. Not good

Upon arriving at the hotel, the staff greeted us lovely. Got to our room which had just been decorated. To find no hair dryer or mirror (I was given both by the lady on reception when I told her , but I had to rest the mirror in the window ledge)and when I went to wash my hands and pressed... More

Stopped two nights on a late booking 29 & 30 July. A "period" hotel but with a modern attitude, if that makes sense? Staff were really friendly and helpful. Restaurant food was very good and priced well. Two bars, one quiet and the other lively with Sports TV and pool table. Overall good value and a pleasant stay.

We stayed for 2 nights - we were attending a wedding nearby. Clean rooms, comfy beds, decent bathroom. Scottish cooked breakfast was very tasty - loved the slightly spicy haggis. We drove but the train station is a very short walk away. Town centre location but didn't suffer any noise problems. Car parking is limited but not difficult to find... More

A last minute one night stay and a last minute organised family dinner here. We stayed in the large four poster room, all was clean and well presented, the modern furniture perhaps not in keeping with the old Georgian building but that is a minor quibble for such a large room with such a cracking view. Dinner and wine hit... More
