Award Winning - AA Hotel Group of the Year

We are delighted to be recognised for the second time in five years as AA Hotel Group of the Year. 

Achieving AA Hotel Group of the Year underlines our commitment to deliver outstanding service at Macdonald Hotels across the UK and we thank all of our guests for their continued support. 

Just some of the reasons we are award-winning:


The launch of The Macdonald Hotels' Signature Collection earlier in 2013 helped highlight our ongoing commitment to the highest standards of product and service and to signpost truly unique hotels, due to their location, history or recent level of investment.All Macdonald Hotels are individual and special in their own way but The Macdonald Hotels' Signature Collection are special in every way.  


Restaurants across the group now collectively hold over 40 AA Rosettes, the highest number of any hotel group, which includes most recently, a second AA rosette at the Jeremy Wares restaurant at Macdonald Houstoun House and a third AA rosette at Rocca Bar& Grill Restaurant located in the iconic Macdonald Rusacks Hotel.

As a group, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts prides itself on the quality of its food presentation and quality, promising to serve dishes prepared from only the finest and freshest produce.  With the offer of bespoke menus, further refinements to the dining experience in all bar, lounge and restaurant areas guests are assured of the satisfying taste of award-winning dining.


Demonstrating ongoing investment, Completing £10million in investments over the last 12 months, significant projects have included; a £1million investment at Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, Aberfoyle, a £1million new golf clubhouse at the Spey Valley Championship Golf Course at Macdonald Aviemore Resort and £700,000 invested into bedrooms at Macdonald Rusacks Hotel.

With over £6million of capital expenditure already committed this year, and significant investments earmarked for the next 12 months, the group continues to lead the way.  These projects include a further £1million IT investment, completing next month which will enable the group to provide a free WiFi service to all guests, several projects underway to build on the already successful Vital spa brand and investment planned to enhance the facilities at Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa near Windsor.


This latest accolade comes just 12 months after the leading hotel group was crowned AA Eco-Hotel Group of the Year in recognition of its commitments to fulfil self-imposed 'Room 15' energy saving targets.


The group is still firmly committed to its quality service offering and continues to develop and invest in new ideas to remain consistently ahead of the competition.
