The Macdonald Holyrood Hotel is a 4-star, tranquil oasis in the bustling city. Edinburgh, the glorious capital of Scotland, is an olde-worlde charmer of a city – with bags of character. The hotel is set in the grand Old Town area of Edinburgh, just a couple of minutes’ stroll from the world-famous Royal Mile. This street runs through the heart of the Old Town, connecting the magnificent Edinburgh Castle with the iconic Holyrood Palace, and is peppered with major landmarks, as well as some of the best eating and drinking areas in the city. The lively Grassmarket drinking district, famed for its spectacular cocktail bars, is just a short walk from the Royal Mile.
The serene spa in the hotel is a wonderful place to detox, and there’s even a state of the art technogym – alongside a 14 metre heated swimming pool. Expert therapists are in the spa if you’re feeling a little plush, and fancy a relaxing beauty treatment. The hotel also has 156 super elegant en-suite guest rooms (some have even had a major £1.4 million refurbishment) – and they are comfort personified. They are furnished in deep, relaxing colours, with huge beds and gorgeous marble bathrooms. The guest rooms are also triple-glazed – perfect for a peaceful night’s sleep in the heart of the Edinburgh action.
After your treatment, sit down to a delectable dinner in the Acanthus restaurant – serving simple, yet classic, locally-sourced dishes. The hotel’s stylish bar is also a perfect spot for afternoon tea, with delicious homemade teas. You can even get a gin afternoon tea. Heaven.
