Macdonald Houstoun House Livingston, Lothian

With a rich history dating back to the 16th century, the glorious Macdonald Houstoun House is something rather special. Close to the iconic city of Edinburgh, it’s located in a peaceful spot amid 22 acres of picturesque woodland. When your mind and body are in the mood to get away from it all, this heavenly retreat fits the bill perfectly.

Superb retail therapy is to be found in Edinburgh’s famous streets, and of course there’s a breath-taking castle at the top of the Royal Mile that’s just waiting to be explored. You can spend some quality time at Edinburgh Zoo, gaze at the exhibits in the National Museum of Scotland and head to the top of Arthur’s Seat for some spectacular views of this wondrous city.

Getting away from it all is easy here, because the magnificent Houstoun House offers 73 gorgeous bedrooms. The three treatment rooms in the spa have all the tranquillity you’ll ever need, and there’s an excellent gym as well. Later, the elegant Jeremy Wares Restaurant will be waiting to wow you.

And relax .....

Marion McFadyen, Denny

My friend and I were having a dinner/ B&B Spa Day. We received a warm welcome at the Vital Spa. We completed questionnaires and on completion were given a guided tour of the facilities by a very pleasant young lady. All areas of the Spa were very well presented and well equipped. We had lunch in the bar which was delicious, tasty and beautifully presented. Our treatments were fantastic and on completion we were so relaxed. The girls who provided our treatments were extremely pleasant and friendly. The swimming pool was lovely too, a very comfortable temperature. Our bedroom was very comfortable and clean. Dinner was exceptional. Breakfast was ok.

Exceptional experience

Jennifer Trysburg, Edinburgh

Room ready for us. Beautiful 18th century building. Bar a joy and real fire. Staff so welcoming and genuinely interested. Happy to take photos. The meal at Jeremy Wares was one of the best we have ever had. Presented faultlessly and place busy on a Monday. Locals in the pool. The grounds are stunning. Daffodils out and trees in bud. Our breakfast was amazing too although a bit of a wait for cereal plates and glasses for juice.

Couples spa break

Nicola Montgomery, South Lanarkshire

Lovely hotel with loads of character.
The room was huge and really clean and modern.
The leisure facilities were good and clean.
I got a facial and my husband got a back massage which we both really enjoyed. The girls were very professional and made the experience so relaxing.
Dinner was really nice and we had a drink in the bar afterwards.

I would recommend this hotel and spa and would definitely return.

Spa day for two

Karen Halliday, Livingston

Everything was great from the initial booking of the spa day to the spa day itself. We had the spa day for two which included two 25 minute treatments each, use of the health & fitness facilities (gym, swimming pool, steam room & sauna), cream tea and a glass of bubbly. All the staff were great and very friendly. We had a lovely day.

“Disappointing, below expectations but did have good points. ”

August 16, 2019 - jadiepye - cardenden

Very disappointed and below expectations for a Macdonald 4 star hotel.  Would stay again, if the price was right but not my first choice. We stayed one night bed and breakfast for £108 (two adults...... Read more
