The location was perfect, very centralized. The staff was kind and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was delicious. My only (not really) complaint was that their sister hotel is about a block away, also called Apex. Caused confusion with drivers more than once. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed our two nights in Edinburgh at the MacDonald. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is a little out of the way, but still within walking distance of city centre and the train station. Best is its close proximity to the trails up to Aurthurs seat.
