Probably a 3.5 rather than a 3. Dog friendly and greeted with a fresh bowl of water (5 out of 5 from the dog!). Food was decent pub grub. Burger could have been tastier but well presented with fresh salad. Service was very friendly and welcoming although bit slow (multi tasking with bar, hotel and restaurant) but I wasn't in...

Came to Dunbar to see where my grandfather lived and stayed at the Royal Mackintosh and I must say our stay was excellent. Dated establishment but has so much charm, very clean and comfortable! We were greeted by a young man, Ross...he was wonderful! Polite and beyond helpful! It was refreshing to see someone so dedicated to customer service, truly...

My wife and I took up the 'Steak Night' deal which was £25 for two Rib-Eye Steaks & a bottle of wine and it was fantastic, the service was really good and the young lad that served us told us the history of the decor within the restaurant - Well done to all concerned, will definitely go back -

As soon as we walked into the Royal Mack we were greeted by a friendly host, who showed us through to the empty dining room. I can only put the lack of people down to the fact it was a Tuesday, because the food was superb! The Battered Haddock and Chips came in full and half-sized portions. When our delightful...

We stayed here as a reward after hiking the entire Southern Upland Way and it was incredible. We had a big, beautiful room with a view of the sea, nice soaking tub, very comfortable bed and delightful "old world" Scottish charm! We could not have been happier with our stay. We arrived much earlier than expected and enjoyed some nice...

The hotel from the outside has kerb appeal although parking is very limited. Reception staff are friendly and very professional. The rooms however are cold, draughty and very noisy from the outside surroundings. The rooms need investment to bring them up to the standard of a budget chain property. There's no chance of working comfortable in these rooms or even...

My daughter (9) and I stayed here whilst visiting relatives. The staff are polite and helpful, but the rooms are way past their refurbish-by date. We didn't have dinner in the restaurant, although we have before and it's always been very good. The breakfast was fine, but the tables for two (as is so often the case in hotels) are...

When my mate heard we were booked he recalled a dirty weekend with his now wife 30 years ago. Well times change, but this hotel doesn't. Comfortable and clean accommodation reasonable food, a good breakfast. What more do you want? Highly recommended

This was the perfect location for my sister and I as it is only about a block from the train station and also a short walk to the High Street. Our room was large with comfortable twin beds and high ceilings. The pub had a friendly atmosphere and the dining room was lovely. The staff was very welcoming and helpful,...
