The staff were brilliant at this difficult time. Lovely big spacious room, right in the heart of Dunbar. Easy access to Edinburgh by train (just up the street), great coastal walks from the hotel both north and south. Great touch by giving me a packed lunch as breakfast could not be served, due to the present situation (covid 19). Again cannot stress how good the staff were

This was our first time as a stopover for Edinburgh airport from South. Lovely comfortable hotel , staff can’t do enough to meet your needs, just a lovely warm Scottish welcome. I used to come to Dunbar as a teenager on holiday every year with parents, the place has changed a bit in terms of housing , shopping etc but you are greeted with the same warm welcome and that’s what people remember. Going to book for a weekend stay in future.

January in Dunbar - Rating 4/5

As in a previous visit the most important impression of the Royal Mac is the superb staff who were always available, effective, cheerful, friendly and immediately aware of needs and obviously skilled and hardworking. This covers all the staff I met, from the reception to the dining room and to the room attendant.The bedroom was adequate for my needs, very warm from the two radiators and well-eqipped, except for the absence of a simple chair, sometimes needed for a quiet time. The warm room meant that theduvet was a bit heavy and maybe an alternative could be provided for those milder January nights which seem to occur in the town.The historic aspects of the house were impressive, especially the Mauretania panellingand the easy access to leaflets and books of interest was valued. But overall, the staff, easy access to the town and the rail/bus services and the reliability of all support needed for an unexpected and necessary visit means that I shall be booking again some time. Thank you

Chose Dunbar as a good option during Edinburgh Festival:easily reached on fast trains.Arrived at hotel late evening to friendly welcome and had time for a stroll to the pretty harbour before dark.Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast served from before 7.00 (impressive) by more friendly staff.Very pleased I chose the place - all good.

Nice Hotel - Rating 4/5

We had a great stay in the Royal Mackintosh Hotel. Only two little things we did not like. The door to our bathroom was warped what the opening of the door made quite heavy. And there should be a door between the bar and the staircase, so the noice stays at the bar.

Weekend golf break - Rating 4/5

Although the Hotel is an older building with some tired décor the wood panelled charm of the dining room and the friendly staff well compensate for the lack of modern facilities. The evening meal was first class and breakfast was freshly cooked and plentiful - just what you need for a day on the course. The small cocktail bar is a warm and friendly place and the family atmosphere makes you feel comfortable enjoying a small amber nectar before bed. Will stay again next time in Dunbar.

one night in dunbar - Rating 4/5

I booked to stay one night on my way back from Skye.The price was £59 which is reasonable.The room was clean and the bathroom was fine and everything worked.The room was very small and overlooked the back yard of the hotel where rubbish was stored and kitchen pots and pans. It was an unpleasant view. My room didn't look like the ones in the photos on the website and had unfinished and unpainted wood around the windows.The breakfast experience was very good due largely to the very pleasant young woman who was serving - she helped me to get my breakfast as I was on crutches. The hot breakfast was excellent and the dining room very pleasant indeed.I had asked for help with luggage on the form I filled in when I booked, but I didn't get it. The TV worked most of the time, so had to watch tv on the internet on my ipad.


I am sorry to hear that you didnt have the most enjoyable stay. You had booked our only single room and unfortunately it is located at the back of the hotel. We would have been more then happy to help you with your luggage, you only had to ask, it would have been no trouble for our staff to run up for your bags when you required help. Thank you for your kind comments about your breakfast experience.

We stayed for a long weekend and were given a warm welcome by all the staff. The staff are always willing to go that extra mile to help you enjoy your stay. The food for breakfast and in the restaurant is very tasty and you are given good size portions. The hotel is close to the station and the town centre which makes the visit to Dunbar easy if you dont have a car. My only suggestion would be that the decor in the rooms could do with a wee update but the bed was comfey so overall i would recommend the Royal Mackintosh to anyone visiting Dunbar.

Thank you all at the Royal Mackintosh for making my brief stay such an enjoyable one at a difficult time, as I was in Dunbar to attend a funeral.

Charming, spacious, clean and very comfy. - Rating 5/5

I was given a warm welcome and shown to my room where I was struck by its spaciousness, with not only a large four-poster bed, but also a full sized sofa set to look out over the crashing waves of the nearby coastline through the rather grand bay window. Just the place for a sound nights sleep for thisweary cyclist. All other aspects of my stay, such as bathroom, breakfast and so on, were well up to the high standard set by this first impression, while the reasonable room rate was extraordinary good value. A lovely hotel and yes, a 'real gem' I would say.

Weekend over the Border - Rating 4/5

We organise a weekend trip to Scotland a couple of times a year...Hotel must haves...Good menu in the restaurant, decent bar, clean rooms, comfy bed all at a keen price, The Royal Mackintosh has all of these, the staff are very friendly and helpful, Breakfast and Evening menus very good. The hotel is in a great location if you decide to get a train into Edinburgh as the station is just a few minutes walk away, a bus stop is outside the Hotel if that's what you would prefer. Dunbar is like so many towns around the country its looking a bit tired, but the harbour is worth a visit and you may even see Sammy the Seal!

First time in Dunbar and already looking forward to our next visit! The hotel is perfectly situated for people travelling by train as the station is a 2 minute walk. It is also a very short walk from Dunbar's various shops and restaurants - many of which are refreshingly independently owned. Hotel staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful - they did everything and more to meet our needs including allowing us to check out later than the usual time after taking part in a local run, and they had no issues with our guide dog! Our room was comfortable, warm and equipped with everything we needed. Really appreciated the bath and hot water which we've sometimes had problems with in other hotels we've stayed in. Finally, there was plenty of choice for breakfast. Thank you for making our stay so memorable, pleasant and comfortable.

Stayed with my mother and sister as we had a family funeral near Dunbar. After travelling over 350 miles I was in need of food and freshments! My room was great and had everything I needed, down to the bar for a pint and some food, the atmosphere was friendly and the food was really good.After a great nights sleep the breakfast in the morning didn't disappoint, in fact it set me up for the rest of the day, very filling and tasty. The breakfast waitress was really friendly and very accommodating as we took our breakfast in the bar area due to my sister having her little but not un-noticed dog with her!! The hotel are very dog friendly which went down well with us - even though my sisters dog is not so friendly!! Slept the best I have in ages every night at the Mackintosh and I am looking forward to a return visit later in the year.

7 day stay in August 2015 - Rating 5/5

Accomodation was excellent as was the food. Small hiccup with housekeeping was resolved immediately. The one downside is the tiny car park.

Good hotel - Rating 5/5

My son and I stayed at the Royal Mackintosh as we were going to Foxlake Adventures the next day (well worth a visit). The hotel is a 2 minute walk from Dunbar train station so is easy to find.The room was clean and quiet,the beds were comfy,the staff were friendly and the breakfasts were generous - my son liked the black pudding and haggis.I would happily stay there again!

The Royal Macintosh hotel was exactly what I imagined an old inn in Scotland would be like. It is full of charm and character..from the checkin "window"to the rooms, to the pub and the restaurant!. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Cliff, thanks for calling us coffee "girls"! Everyone was just Great!

Wonderful Dog Friendly Hotel - Rating 5/5

This hotel is wonderful, if you have a dog, you must stay here, sadly nowhere in Dunbar is dog friendly apart from the Royal Mac which is such a shame as its such a beautiful area to bring your four legged friends, I would stay here again without hesitation, I loved it, my daughter loved it and Holly the Beagle loved it!Thank you so much for an excellent stay!

Fabulous Hospitality - Rating 5/5

We stayed at the Royal Mackintosh hotel as we went to a wedding in the nearby Broxmouth Park. Upon arrival we were advised that one of our rooms wasn’t ready but we could gain access to the other one to get ready (we arrived before 12 and check in is at 1 so this was very kind of them). We went to get a drink but then realised that we would have to drive to the venue and decided against the drink…on hearing this, Cliff (the manager I think) offered to drive us to the venue - unbelievable kindness! The rooms were lovely, really good sizes and very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable and we slept really well and the shower was excellent with really good power, lovely towels and toiletries. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast was outstanding. We will definitely stay here again.

Mrs - Rating 4/5

I found that The Royal Mackintosh Hotel had a friendly welcoming homely atmosphere. The Room which I occupiedwas a good size. Linen/towels, cleanliness of room and ensuite absolutely spotless. Coffee /tea making facility,TV, Hairdryer, tissues etc all provided.Breakfast excellent. Hotel situated 5 minute walk from Station. Train into Edinburghtook 20 minutes. Ideal situation for tourists. Dunbar itself has a lovely old harbour where the ruins of Dunbar Castle are situated.To sum up, as a single female guest I felt very comfortable staying at this small Hotel.Wifi was available and I had no trouble in the Bar connecting.

Enjoyable stay - Rating 4/5

We stayed for one night in May while attending a wedding locally. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. Even the dog had a good night's sleep! The light lunch when we arrived and the breakfast next morning was excellent. It is not a grand hotel but very good value for the price.
