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.

My perfect treat spa day?
  • 5 Service

I treated myself and my friend to a spa day at this hotel as my friend is getting married here next year, so I thought would be a nice wee relaxing day before it all. Couldn’t fault anything, amazing from start to finish, treatments that we had were great from beginning to end from the therapist Tanya, 10/10! Thank you for making our day memorable. Would definitely recommend. The afternoon tea was bliss, you do need to go to the other building but they separated spa to public so you could go over in your spa robes. You don’t get a glass of Prosecco with it but you can buy, which we never, we enjoyed a hot chocolate instead. Highly recommend and would definitely return.

Spa weekend with my daughter and I can honestly say what a lovely relaxed feel the place has.The staff across the board from house keeping to management are extremely friendly and helpful and that alone is very inviting. Beds are comfy, can use the leisure facilities before you check in and after you check out your room. We had a massage that was beautiful profession and relaxing atmosphere. If I’m going to be picky food was good but for the prices some of the dishes are I think the food should be at a slightly better standard. But all in all what a lovely relaxing.
