What We Love

  • Having the run of a splendid country house, complete with wood-paneled Atonement-style library
  • The historic atmosphere, from old family portraits in the hall to memorabilia from golfing greats
  • Classic guestrooms that get the country house feel just right, with antiques, chintz and toile tastefully mixed together
  • Rooms overlooking the 18th hole of the Muirfield golf course and the Firth of Forth beyond
  • The beautiful exterior, with Lutyens-designed curved stone front

What To Know

  • Although it’s just 45 minutes from Edinburgh, Greywalls is very much in the country; you’ll need a car to get around
  • It’s not a party place – best suited to sophisticated travelers who fancy rounds of golf, romantic strolls around the garden and a whiskey by the fire
  • The property is near several of the world’s greatest fairways, making it the ideal base for a golfing break
  • Greywalls has many lovely period details that will delight traditionalists more than modern design buffs
  • Meals at the hotel can be expensive, and it’s a 15-minute drive to other restaurants

A friend And I met in Edinburgh for thanksgiving. We decided to stay out side the city for a couple of days. I had heard about Greywalls from two different friends, and it sounded perfect. It was perfect. There are many little places to settle in the long hallway and main formal room if one want to have a drink by a fire. Or one can stay in the beautifully appointed bedrooms and listen to music on the Roberts radio placed in every room. What a treat. Dinner was a treat too. We were staying with a pre- arranged menu included but one night I tried the much spoken of cheese soufflé. It was well worth the extra tariff!! But everything was delicious and our sweet server Imogene even carried upstairs a pot of hot water for my friend after dinner was finished. The fun rushing down and appointments were charming and the Gsrden out the window was a glory in late November. The head Gardner Neil answered many questions about plants for me and it was fun to see him outside with his assistant and two eager dogs running about. This is really more like a private house than a hotel. A perfectly run private house!! P.s. I ordered a Roberts radio for myself when I got home just to prolong the magic

Afternoon Tea
Reviewed 1 month ago

Greywalls is beautiful. I had afternoon tea with my sister and mum and it was delightful. Our booking was taken by Ryan Simpson who was very friendly and whose customer service was impeccable, as were the staff who were serving us on the day. A great selection of delicious sandwiches, scones, cakes and tea. I would highly recommend and I will definitely be back.

Short Break

Excellent small hotel. Great staff from start to finish. Large very comfortable room, very clean, nice bathroom with good shower. Breakfast waiter served with an excellent choice of cooked dishes. Very good. Dinner from both the market menu & the a la carte very well presented & excellent flavours. Good wine list. Only slight flaw in the whole stay was the fact that the market menu was virtually identical on both of our nights stay, but this is a minor quibble. If you are looking for a quality pampered stay then this is it. Highly recommended.

Golf Trip

Very quaint place. Attention to detail, clean, and homey. Staff was professional and pleasant. The food was lovely and the wine list superb. It was also very quiet and private. We would absolutely stay there again and again.

Amazing location, beautiful property, a bit stuffy

No question this is a beautiful, intimate resort/hotel in an equally beautiful setting. The hotel staff were very professional as were the restaurant staff. They are professional on the verge of being a bit 'cold' and aloof - but perhaps that's my perception because everywhere we travelled in Scotland people were so warm and friendly. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful. The hotel is older with rich history and with that comes looking a bit dated and a bit 'worn' - which was acceptable. We had dinner and it was wonderful. We spent 1 night here and with drinks and dinner it was our most expensive 24 hours in Scotland.
