“Couldn't be more impressed.”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed here last Friday night, the hotel staff and manager couldn't be more accommodating and welcoming to us.
We e-mailed the hotel a few days before requesting a early check in as we had to be at a wedding at the time of the check in (2pm). This wasn't a problem at all and we even had enough time to get ready - the manager, Cliff I think, gave us a lift to the wedding. It was so nice of him to go out of his way to help us out.

Our room was huge, and we had a gorgeous view out onto the sea. The bay window was ginormous, you could sit there all day.

The breakfast in the morning was delicious and everything was cooked perfectly.

Would definitely recommend a stay here and will be booking in here again.

I stayed here in September while working in the area, I found the reception area, bar and restaurant to be clean, tidy and comfortable (though a little tired), the original panelling in the restaurant looks good, my room was also clean and tidy and again a little dated however I did sleep very well as the bed was very comfortable. The food at dinner was excellent as was breakfast which could best be described as "hearty". All of the staff I met were excellent (very pleasant and friendly). One downside was the lack of parking, the hotel car park is small (it may only take 5 or 6 cars) this meant I had to park on the roadside away from the hotel. I'll finish by saying that I did enjoy my stay and would return if I'm working in the area again.

I booked for one night as part of my partners birthday present. It's a lovely building and although the car park is small we found a space just outside the hotel easily. When we checked in I explained that we were leaving early the next morning and would need to check out before 8. This was no problem however the girl did tell us that breakfast on a Sunday didn't start until 8 so we would miss it, she then said that she would arrange for the night porter to have a continental breakfast organised. We were shown into a spacious room with a view across to the sea. After going for a walk through the town and down to the lovely old castle ruins we returned to the hotel to be met by a manager who told us that they had arranged a member of staff to come in early on the Sunday so that we could have breakfast. Great service and would happily stay again plus the goats cheese burger on the bar menu is delicious!

We spent a very mediocre night at this hotel while walking the coastal path from Berwick to Edinburgh. Not sure if the place has heard of housekeeping. The dining room was so dark with 8 out of the 16 bulbs in the lights broken. Our room had a broken blind, curtains hanging off the rail and an old toilet roll holder not removed in the bathroom, with a new one fitted to replace it. The food was better than expected

From the minute of checking in to the minute we checked out, it was an amazing experience. We were advised that there would be a change of room allocation, we were allocated room 9, which was much larger on the floor plan than room 24 which appeared to be the original plan. The hotel was clean, spacious and friendly, amazing breakfasts and once we had checked out and had a while to wait for our train, I ordered 2 coffees and was told there was no charge. Will definitely book another days as soon as possible.

Arrived for my niece's wedding and a family get together.A warm and friendly welcome from staff when we arrived. Our room was Number 12, large, airy and big comfy bed with spotless linen and fluffy towels. En-suite with good shower and lots of hot water, again spotless.Just needed a wee electric socket near a mirror. Had lunch in the bar which was lovely and very good value. An old fashioned hotel which is currently being upgraded, breakfast room beautifully wood panelled with a historical connection. Very pleasant stay and friendly staff which is a huge plus. Thank you all!
P.S. Big family room for Victoria and Jared looked great!

A quick email to Hannah, the owner of the Royal Macintosh and our room was booked. We arrived about 13.00 hrs on Sunday and quickly checked in and shown to room No 11 by Carol the lady that looks after the rooms and she also minded of Bruce, our Labrador. The room was perfect with a good size bathroom and looked out to the front of the hotel with a nice view. The staff are all really nice and are certainly dog friendly. The breakfasts are also very good, plenty toast coffee and a good menu with 3/4 choices. We really like the Royal Macintosh and the staff, Carol is very nice and enjoys having Bruce there, we will return later in the year.

Room Tip: We were in room No. 11, large room, plenty tea/coffee, new TV/DVD player and good shower and bathroo...
