A stay in Edinburgh's Old Town, with luxury spa facilities and an award-winning restaurant - includes breakfast and access to the wellness centre

If you want to be at the very heart of all the spectacles and street scenes that make Edinburgh so distinctive, but you want to avoid the noise of taxi horns and night revellers, then there are few hotels better than this.

The Macdonald Holyrood couldn’t have a more impressive situation: it's located in the Old Town, minutes away from the Royal Mile, between the imposing Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyrood House. It’s neighbours with the Scottish Parliament and looks across to Arthur’s Seat. Edinburgh's most famous shopping destination, Princes Street, is a short walk away too.
Yet Macdonald Holyrood Hotel, with its award-winning restaurant, is on a quiet street - making it a luxurious sanctuary away from the crowds. It’s the kind of place where you can be sure of a good night’s sleep - the triple-glazed windows and newly refurbished spa definitely help with that. When you’re ready to throw yourself into the bustling life of the Scottish capital, you’re only five minutes away from the fun. It comes as no surprise that MacDonald Holyrood boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Elsewhere, there's a bar for a relaxing tipple, and must-try afternoon tea.


Treat yourself to some time out at the Spa and Health Club, which is equipped with state-of-the-art Technogym and a 14-metre heated indoor pool. There are plenty of treatments on offer, from deep tissue massages and detox wraps to manicures and pedicures.


You don’t get a better location than this, near all the big Edinburgh landmarks, and yet the hotel is positioned in a quiet spot of the old town so you’re guaranteed a peaceful night’s sleep. While in this enchanting city, make a beeline for the neighbouring Palace of Holyrood House, before exploring the famous Royal Mile, Royal Botanic Garden and Scottish National Gallery.
