Macdonald Houstoun House

8.4 Very Good (23 reviews)

This picturesque country hotel and retreat offers a warm cosy welcome to guests who can take advantage of its proximity to Edinburgh, but just as much stay put if a spa break is the main purpose for visiting. A clay tennis court is hidden in the hotel’s walled garden and there’s a gym, swimming pool and sauna available to guests wanting a work out. Meanwhile, the sauna, steam room and relaxation area set the scene for calmness, before a luxurious Elemis treatment will totally restore you.

Hotel & Accommodation

  • Pet Friendly
  • Restaurant

Once visited by Mary Queen of Scots, Macdonald Houstoun House retains the charm of a 16th century bolthole in 22 acres of woodland just west of Edinburgh. The hotel has 70 rooms, which comes as something of a surprise given the boutique, homely exterior aspect; while interiors straddle the line between classic regional accents and modern design.

Befitting a country estate, Jeremy Wares at Houston House combines a fine dining experience with a pleasant lack of pretence and showcasing Scotland’s favourite ingredients. There is also the Vaulted Bar – a cosy environment, not least of all because of the open hearth; open for drinks, teas and coffees throughout the day.
