You can't fault the location of the Macdonald Holyrood Hotel because it's very close to main attractions in Edinburgh and a good range of restaurants are available in the immediate vicinity. The rooms are OK - a little tired in terms of furniture but OK all the same; I am not a great fan of bathrooms that insist on having the shower in the bath as a walk-in shower is always better. The breakfast offers a mixture of traditional dishes (good Scottish porridge and the fries) plus the normal buffet of pastries, cereals, etc. At STG15.50, it's expensive if you don't book in advance or (even better) make sure that your room rate includes breakfast. A Tesco Express supermarket is just up the road so you can buy stuff there if you prefer. Parking is also expensive and the hotel car park has limited spaces. The STG20 nightly rate can be bettered by the STG14 rate of the car park up the road (away from Holyrood Palace). I also didn't like the STG3 transaction fee charged to people who pay with credit cards. Free Wi-Fi is available in the public areas on the ground floor but you have to pay in the rooms, which is regrettable.
