+1 Hour Late Checkout

Loving your stay with us? Make it a little bit longer when you book direct. We'll give you an extra hour to stretch out, hit the snooze button, and sink into the sheets. Or, if you have plenty of get-up-and-go, you can spend those extra 60 minutes burning off your excess energy in our pool or leisure club, if you've booked into one of our spa hotels. 

Linger over breakfast - you'll have time for that extra cup of coffee - and there'll be no need to rush back to your room to pack. Enjoy an extra hour with us, before you leave refreshed and ready for your journey. That's another reason why it's Better, Direct.

Free Parking*

At Macdonald Hotels, we understand that our unique and distinctive locations sometimes require a bit of travel effort (but the journey is always worth it, we promise!)

That's why, when you book on our website, we'll let you park your car for free at selected locations - so if you're driving door-to-door, we'll not charge you more. Please note that as our locations range from cosmopolitan city centres to National Parks, free on-site parking isn't always available, but if that's the case we will always strive to offer you an exclusive discounted rate on our on-site or nearby car parking instead. That's why it's Better, Direct.
