Lovely Hotel!
I enjoyed my stay at the Royal Macintosh very much and would definitely stay here again. Staff is super friendly and helpful, rooms are cosy and clean and the food served in the beautiful restaurant is superb. The hotel is just around the corner from the station and an easy walk away from the high street and harbour/castle ruins. Do pop into John Muir's birthplace, if you get a chance.It's a small but very interesting exhibition (admission is free).

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.

Weekend Golf Break
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.

Thank you for a very enjoyable wee break, I had booked for up to two to be flexible, and although had not informed you fully, Kirsty, (who greeted us was very helpful and welcoming) dealt with the error perfectly. She is a star. In fact all the staff were very friendly and helpful - nothing was any trouble. Lovely.

I adore the traditional hotel experience and your hotel was to a very high standard, without being 'out-dated' The restaurant was beautiful, and the food was amazing, you have a gem of a chef.

Our room was lovely and though I was on a small budget, I didn't find anything was lacking or budget standard.

All in all a fabulous place and I really hope to stay again on my next wee trip.

Having stayed in various Hotels and B and Bs in the East Lothian area (Musselburgh, Tranent, Dunbar) as a business traveller during the past 3 years, this was the best value for money experience that I have so far encountered. In particular, a warm room and plenty of hot water for a shower at 5.30am, opportunity to get a full breakfast at 6.45am and a warm room to come back to at 5.30pm were much appreciated. Facilities such as these are needed by business travellers but often not available at other establishments, which seem only to cater for tourists even in the depths of winter.

Charming, Spacious, Clean And Very Comfy.
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 this weary 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.

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!

Lovely, Comfortable Stay.
I had just finished the John Muir Way so I was ready for some comfort and I got it. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. The staff were polite, helpful and extremely efficient. Amanda and Ross who 'manned' the restaurant were very busy but perfect. They were attentive to everybody's needs. Although the restaurant was extremely busy they were able to manage everybody's meals with ease. Very impressive. All the staff were very efficient, polite and helpful.. The Hotel should be aware that they have an exceptional team here. Having stopped at ten different hotles and B&B's along the route I can say that this was really outstanding. Even a fire alarm in the early morning was dealt with efficiently and professionally. Thank you.

The full Scottish breakfast is fantastic (and a considerable undertaking!), and the grilled sea-bass on roasted tomatoes with samphire and watercress was beautifully done. If you're on an early trip out of the harbour, they'll even put a packed lunch together for you.

Wir waren eine Gruppe Biker die auf der Tour durch Schottland eine Nacht im Royal Mackintosh übernachtet haben. Die Zimmer sind komfortabel und modern eingerichtet. Der Empfang war ausgesprochen freundlich und herzlich. Die Qualität des Essens/Trinken und das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis war ausgesprochen gut! Besonders der zum Hotel zugehörige Pub war sehr gemütlich. Das Frühstück war umfangreich und hat alles geboten was man brauchte. Das Highlight war das Eckzimmer mit Meerblick!

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. I travel extensively with work and spend more time in hotels then home and this is up there in my top slots.

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.

we have stayed at the Royal Mackintosh on five occassions. The room we stayed in this time was a superior king which had recently been upgraded. The staff as always were superb and looked after us very well. We will definately be returning in the future.
