We went with National Holidays on a 3 night trip to see the Edinburgh Tattoo. The value for money was outstanding. Travel, accommodation, breakfast, 3 course evening meal, 4 free drinks included and entrance into the Tattoo. All for £199 each. You couldn't do it cheaper if you tried. The hotel was good. The rooms were cleaned daily, the food was lovely and the service was great. The evening entertainment wasn't that good though haha. Overall I would give the hotel 4/5. After reading other reviews on this site, I'm shocked and the fact that people expect 5* for little money causing them to leave horrid reviews it's not nice! If you want 5* hotels pay 5* prices. You guys at Claymore did a fantastic job. One thing that surprised me was, when I asked for room prices, as I wanted to take my wife there for our anniversary, I got told I can only book through National Holidays. I was hoping to drive up and have that little bit more freedom on our anniversary.

I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay at the Claymore hotel and I'll certainly pass on your comments to all the staff in the hotel..
Both National Holidays and the Claymore hotel pride themselves inn offering great value for money and its great to see it recognised here.
I can inform you that all our bookings are made through National holidays and booking a self drive trip can be done although the booking still has to through National.
All you do is inform them that you are driving by car and turn up at the hotel on the date of arrival.
You are then able to travel on any of the coach trips available and also have the convenience of travelling around on your own if you wish.
I hope this information is useful to you and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Claymore hotel.
