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

Luxury

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. You can view our ‘In Style’ collection of tours, to explore some of our luxury options.

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.

    Routes were very good, as has been our experience generally with Macs. The erroneous map app was disappointing - fortunately I caught it when I compared it to the turn-by-turn directions for that day - but the fact that no one could correct it for another 24 hours was completely unsatisfactory. The staff is generally very good and always tries their best, but you get the distinct impression that they are severely understaffed - no one picks up the phone half the time and you get shunted to voicemail, which often was not responded to for days. Most disappointing of all was the lodging. The Royal in Dunkeld was a dump, and should never have been on Mac's approved list. When I had asked for an upgrade weeks earlier based on their marginal on-line reviews (I agreed to pay any uncharge) I was told nothing was available. I later learned this was not the case when I actually inquired out of curiosity when we were in Dunkeld, but of course it was too late to change. It's like they just don't want to take the time or effort to accommodate such requests, but the very marginal lodging detracted from the entire trip.

    Despite busy time of year, always came back to us and kept us informed. They were more helpful by phone when we were on holiday, having caught Covid on board the ship, than the local partner was initially.

    Fabulous organisation and accommodation from Macs Adventures yet again.
  • Mr Mark Francis 29/06/2022
    We had a great time on the Macs Adventure trips. We utilized their services for both the Amalfi Coast and Cinque Terre in Italy. The hotels were good, the baggage transfer services worked flawlessly. They even managed to get a hat to us that we had left behind in the room. Their schedule was a great starting place for us but allows flexibility to make some changes and do things differently if you wished. For instance we did one of the hikes on a different day and added a bicycle tour one day.

    For the overnight accommodations my rating is nearly a five, as most were really quite good. For the connections my rating is a 4. My biggest issue is with the daily informatin packets. These were difficult to follow. Most issues were addressed by phone calls during each of our three tours.

    I walked the Finisterre with Macs after first walking to the Espiritual with another company to Santiago. The difference was remarkable. This was not my first trip with Macs and will not be my last. The hotels were brilliant and the breakfasts were well catered and my walking companions and I were always in the same place for the evening. The bags were delivered as promised. I will contrast with the other company to show you the difference: Macs: same hotel every night for my travel companions and myself Other company: different hotels for my travel companions and myself for three nights out of eight nights Macs: quality of hotels was brilliant. Clean, good locations Other company: Some hotels were on par with MACS but others were places I did not want to sleep in and some of the staff did not seem happy we were staying there when we walked in after a long walk Macs: breakfast was always a good spread Other company: very much luck of the draw Macs: guidance for the route was very good Other company: We needed to get onto our phones at times to find the right path Macs: provided the Pilgrim book Other company: We needed to go to a church to obtain the Pilgrim book Macs delivered on my previous walk with them as well and I will be booking further walks with Macs. I found the Finisterre a much better walk for the Spiritual aspects even though there were less churches. The Finisterre is a road less travelled and the Espiritual is also not as well travelled but the Finisterre was a highlight of the recent walks I have done. Do the Finisterre before the secret gets out how great it is!

    Great experience!

    the service was good We enjoyed the cape Breton hike all the places we stayed were excellent except for one place. would recommend this trip
  • Mr Mark Foley 29/06/2022
    They did exactly what we ordered and paid for. No hiccups, no disappointments and even the weather was great throughout, though I'm not sure they fixed that ...

    The coordination, communication and accommodations were 5 star.

    If you want to walk long distance paths without the hassles of heavy backpacks, etc. Mac's are the guys for you, sorted all the accomodation and baggage transfers for me on my recent adventure. Couldn't fault the organisation or service, everything you need us provided.
  • Ms Emily Goldfarb 28/06/2022
    I love Macs Adventure! I love everything about this kind of travel. On our own, at our own pace, not with a group but with the arrangements excellently taken care of by you, wonderful inns, good maps, the route set out for us and on a path that goes through wonderful countryside, villages, with views and adventures galore. Delivering our bags from place to place and all for a very reasonable price. For people who like hiking, this is the way to do it!
  • Mr Kenneth Airlie 27/06/2022
    Did what was promised, variety of accommodation but all were suitable, baggage transport was great suit case always waiting for us. I would use this company again
  • Anonymous 26/06/2022
    They delivered what they said they would - good service, maps, nice accommodations, etc.
  • Mrs Annabel Golden 23/06/2022
    The Service from Macs was very, very good. All the pre-trip stuff went very well, except for one thing. We were leaving our home a month before our trip started (travelling elsewhere). I kept telling you that we needed the materials sent to us earlier than you usually would, but you didn't. The package even missed us at our first hotel.
  • Mrs Julia Champion de Crespigny 23/06/2022
    Wonderful walk. Superb scenery. Accomodation ok but quite basic. iPhone app worked quite well but pleased to have the printed back up.
  • Mr Andrew Hall 23/06/2022
    Superbly organised, lovely accommodation, great luggage transfers and the online maps were brilliant!
  • Anonymous 22/06/2022
    This was our second Macs Adventure’s experience and it did not disappoint. From my initial contact through to our final departure, everything was well communicated and planned and made our holiday so enjoyable knowing that Macs had done the ‘hard work’ for us. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Beautiful hikes that are not crowded trails. You follow daily route instructions at your own pace. Wonderful experience
