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.

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.
From start to finish it was amazing. 2 girls in very much need of a relaxing day. Day to shut off from our jobs and children. The massages we both received were fab. All staff we dealt with throughout or day were fab.
We came to the Houstoun House as have been to a few Macdonald hotels and wanted to try another 1. Hotel is lovely, staff friendly, very clean and tidy, everything was lovely.
I had a fantastic day with my daughter. Staff were extremely pleasant and showed us around the place.
Houston House is set in the woodlands and has an extremely relaxing atmosphere. The place is spotless and modern.
We started the day with a session at the gym, followed by sauna,steam room, swim then treatments - we both felt so relaxed!
We were to bar in hotel for lunch but there were no staff around so after waiting ten minutes we left which was disappointing.
However an extremely good day!
We were only at Houston House for 24 hours but we were made so welcome and felt so at home the staff were attentive throughout our stay.
The food was delicious and spa treatments were just what we wanted .
Altogether a good experience and would definitely go back, recommend this venue for a break away.
