Comfort Levels

Our trips have a variety of comfort ratings, depending on the location or the style of adventure you want. Whatever the level, we carefully select accommodation to ensure you receive a friendly welcome and that your stay is a comfortable, authentic experience.

Most holidays are in the comfortable range, including nights in friendly, independent or family-run hotels, guest houses, or B&Bs. No matter what the type of lodging, it will always be chosen for charm, cleanliness, and those special touches that make you feel at home. Some holidays are graded superior, with a little extra luxury, and some contain more basic accommodation, particularly in more remote locations where mountain refuges or camps may house your bed for the night. 

Where you stay shapes your overall experience, and can leave you with some of the best memories, anything from the best breakfast pastries you've ever had, to an evening in front of the fireplace spent with a convivial host. Rest-assured, we've selected the best-suited accommodation for each night's rest.

Basic

Basic

Accommodations are comfortable and will meet all of your basic needs. These may include Mountain Huts and limited B&B’s. They might be rustic, and an en-suite or private bathroom is not always available. Sometimes located in a remote area, these accommodations could also be shared with other travellers. Whilst they may be more basic in facilities, they are big on welcome.

Comfortable

Comfortable

Our comfortable accommodations include charming B&B’s and guest houses, as well as small hotels and inns. These are usually family-run and always clean, comfortable and well-located. This is the grade of accommodation you can expect on most trips, and we prioritise a warm welcome when selecting your lodgings. After a day on the trail, we know that you need the peace of mind that your board has been hand-picked for comfort & charm.

Superior

Superior

We use three or four star hotels and luxurious B&B’s to welcome you to our Superior accommodations. Many are renowned for their excellent cuisine and all offer a warm reception to walkers, traditional hospitality and an authentic experience. Holidays might be described as "In Comfort" to let you know that they have a higher specification of overnight accommodation. All the warmth and comfort of our standard lodgings, with a little extra special feel.

Luxury accommodation comprises carefully chosen 4 star stylish hotels, all ideally located to offer the best service for our walkers and cyclists. We specifically choose each 4 star hotel for the superior view rooms, high levels of service and hospitality, along with the delicious local cuisine on offer.

Various

Some trips include a variety of accommodation styles. For instance, whilst on a trek in Nepal, you will stay in traditional mountain lodges in remote areas. Toilets and washing facilities may be shared and you may be in twin-share rooms. However, while in Kathmandu, you can stay at the 5 star hotels opposite the Royal Palace. Or on the Larapinta Trail, you may be in a four star hotel to start your adventure, and remote eco-camps for your trek.

    Great service, put together a great holiday in a very short time in trying circumstances, Mac's map and route app, very useful.

    I wasn't too impressed with Mac, for the amount the holiday cost me I was really disappointed in a few of the accomodations. We walked through the recent storm and the drying facilities weren't good at all. Also a few of them were just run down and rather uninviting. I would have expected better for the amount of money charged. I will book myself for the next section of this great walk (South West Coast Path)
  • Mr Nigel Cole 18/10/2020
    Itinerary, accommodation and baggage transfers were all fine.
  • Mrs Caroline Duncombe 14/10/2020
    Great holiday and different from our normal choices. In spite of being last minute and two hotels used by Macs Adventures not being available, they were flexible enough that we were picked up and lour uggage transferred from closeby accomodation I managed to book separately. Very functional maps provided on an app (not paper) and very scenic routes.
  • Mr David Alan Williams Williams 14/10/2020
    Everything enjoyable and the baggage transfer system s real benefit so that the holiday could be enjoyed without having to carry a huge haversack. However, my Northumberland break could have been two days longer as I to get a taxi from Lindisfarne to Berwick-upon-Tweed and never had chance to visit Berwick which seems a lovely town
  • Tom Butler 13/10/2020
    Macs adventure were exceptional both in the personal erice they offered and in the organising of the trip. Would 100% recommend and use again.
  • Anonymous 13/10/2020
    A really good holiday, I haven't given 5 stars because one of the accommodations in Criel was described as a 4 star hotel, but it was only a 2 star, so that caused some disappointment. Bag transfer service worked seamlessly. Really liked the last 2 nights accommodation in St Andrews and Newport on Tay. Didn't use the app, we prefer to use OS maps, but having the guide book was useful.

    I originally booked for the end of April, but Covid intervened. Macs were very efficient at offering me a refund or a deferral, when I chose to go at the end of September they reorganised my trip and when one of my accommodations dropped out, they reorganised and if anything the accommodation was better. The instructions were good and the trip was the fulfilment of an ambition, I would certainly book with them again.

    I have sung the praises of Mac's Adventure in the past as we have had some great walking holidays with them. The Isle of Wight walking holiday was different. The walk itself was terrific and I would recommend it to any walker, BUT our experience with Mac's A was not so good and we are doubtful that we would ever use them again. When I booked I don't remember being made aware that all dealings would be electronic. On previous walking holidays we have been sent maps and books on the walk which I have pored over and thoroughly enjoyed. This time after I'd paid the final invoice I was sent an email that told me that I would get nothing further from the company and that all the information was in my e-account with them. So no maps, no walking route guide, just a reference to using a smart phone and downloading information. I struggled to find what I needed. I am not technologically advanced enough to work the way the company assumed I could. I tried to print out some details which cost me a lot of time and expense. I consider I had paid Mac's A to do this work for me. They expected me to do their work for them. I was disappointed to find that the company was working differently from my previous experiences and don't believe I was warned about that when I booked. For this reason I cannot recommend Mac's Adventures unless you are young enough to cope with the demands made technologically and can use a smart phone. Of the six different accommodation experiences, 2 were excellent, 3 were merely OK, and one was not fit to be used. Th Jireh in Yarmouth was dreadful. The Host greeted us with 'No, we don't have you booked in and we're full'. When I said our luggage would have been delivered there, she said 'No, no luggage of yours'. After a lengthy silence she then said 'Oh I had you there, didn't I?'. How she thought it was funny, I really don't know. The room was like a hostel, no bedside tables etc. there was a kettle but no cups or drinks - the host said 'we don't leave anything as people just fiddle with them'. We had 2 dismal night in this appalling place. Another company we have used have offered an opportunity to upgrade accommodation albeit at an extra expense. Mac's should consider this too.
  • Mr Dave Hyde 11/10/2020
    Couldn't fault the experience fantastic accommodation and a fantastic walk. Will definitely book with Macs again and would highly recommend them.
  • Mr Barry Mitchell 09/10/2020
    I can't really fault the service that Macs Adventures provided on my recent Pennine Way walk. The accommodation was comfortable and the baggage transfer was carried out successfully and to time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Macs Adventures to anyone.
  • Anonymous 09/10/2020
    They put together a great trip and were really easy to communicate with.
  • Mr Brett Irwin 09/10/2020
    Good, clear communication in a difficult time to trail walking. I had a brilliant experience and I booked it fairly close to my departure date. It hit the reset button!
  • Pauline 09/10/2020
    Every thing went smoothly until the final week when we had not received any maps or guide as in our previous two walks. Instructions were based on owning a smart phone ( we do not own ). We were sent downloads ( 52 pages copied ). No reference to O.S. Grid ref what so ever metric measurements only.

    Trip ran like clockwork. Hotels and B&Bs expecting us, luggage safely moved. Accommodation varied - some excellent, some poor, but doesn't matter when you are only staying one night.
  • Mr Graham Thompson 08/10/2020
    On our way at last from our earlier booking cancelled due to the virus, however nothing disappointed Macs handling of the re arrangement was smooth and trouble free with a price guarantee.Each and everyone of the B & Bs had their own charm and warm greeting from our hosts,nothing was to much trouble , comfy rooms great breakfasts. In hindsight we should have allowed a extra day, the route is not flat as some say and I did get a blister, but hey ho I lived to tell the tale Thank You Macs Graham and David

    An excellent trip completing the Cleveland Way. Lovely accommodation and baggage transfer service
  • Anonymous 06/10/2020
    Overall we were quite disappointed with the service from Macs. You pay a premium for this type of tour but the information and communication were quite poor. I have given 4 stars because I assume in non-C19 times it would have been better. The guest houses themselves were fantastic - very helpful. The luggage transfer worked very well. However, there were long delays in confirming the booking details which we were told was due to availability. Yet when we arrived it was clear that most places were half empty. We were also put in accommodation that was several miles off the route. This resulted in having to walk an additional 6 miles on one day. No directions were provided, there was no information about where to eat and there were no local taxis available. The Guest House owner was fantastic and drove us several miles to a local pub, then came to pick us up later. Without this, there was no way of getting food once we arrived. The Mac app and information pack were perhaps the most disappointing aspect of the tour. These just have details for standard sections. They have not been adjusted for the current Covid situation (e.g. public transport, places to eat etc), nor are they adjusted for the actual places you are staying. Luckily we had the Ordnance Survey app - which is fantastic - and we used this throughout. Without it, we would have struggled to find the guest house which was way off the standard route. I would try Macs again for a long tour where I think they could probably add more value.

    Macs Adventure booked a 16 day tip with only a few days notice. Although I don't recommend giving such short notice, it was achieved.
  • Mr Rodney Lynn 06/10/2020
    Our request for an organised short trip on part of the Beara Way was made at the last minute. Macs Adventures rose to the challenge brilliantly and kept us informed all the time. The spacial requests we had were readily accommodated and worked well. The actual trip when well; we were supplied with the travel information we needed - trail instructions, instructions on locating our accommodation and details about where to find evening meals - were complete and thorough. All in all, we had a wonderful time. Macs also laid on 4 consecutive days of sunshine and warm weather so that we could really enjoy the walking and the views!
