About

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.

Please note: This Hotel operates a cashless system.

Spa was great. Unfortunately I found the dinner menu and the food very disappointing eg (bought in frozen desserts )which took away from what would have been a great overnight stay.

I would definitely recommend this Spa Day to anyone. Katie my masseuse was amazing. She made me feel like i was floating on air and she gave me the best massage i have ever had!!! The hotel itself does need a makeover but that is just a minor issue which can be fixed.

The treatments were both very relaxing and enjoyable. A lovely back massage and facial, which left my skin feeling amazing. The pool and sauna were great, followed by a delicious lunch, and coffee outside in the sunshine in beautiful grounds. I loved the whole experience and would definitely return.

Great location for our needs and ample parking but hotel needs a facelift.

Bit shabby & tired looking. Some areas need sprucing up. Receptionists should escort you to your room or at least the building when you’re assigned to the “annexe” and literally have no idea where...... Read more

Warm reception but chilly room and poor breakfast

Staff on reception were friendly and welcoming and bar and waiting staff were also a pleasure to deal with. My room was a deluxe king size and it was certainly large with nice bedding and toiletries...... Read more
