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

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.

Afternoon tea for 2

Very welcoming hotel with lovely staff, set in beautiful grounds. Afternoon tea was beautiful, impossible to finish so boxed up the cakes we could not manage to take home. Be sure to walk around the gardens.

Just perfect!

My husband and I stayed at Greywalls for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

The drive up to the hotel is very inviting and enchanting. We arrived far too early for check-in but planned a light lunch anyway. We were warmly greeted at the door and after a quick check advised our room was actually ready.
The staff kindly took our luggage from the car, we were explained the beautiful layout of the hotel and then shown to our room. Had preordered bubbles and chocolate strawberries and they were in the room. Member of staff kindly poured our first glasses. We had a large double on first floor in the curve of the entrance. Lovely country style decor with a spacious bathroom. All modern facilities but in heritage style. Best of both worlds.

We had lunch (in library) and dinner both days and of course breakfast. The staff are amazing and the service is simply perfect at all times. Dinner in the restaurant is first class and you never feel rushed. The pace is just right. Dinners and canapés are serviced in the lounge areas while you make your dinner selections. We were given a lovely anniversary plate with our coffee and liqueurs on our first night. Very sweet touch.

We had some walks in the lovely gardens. In warmer weather would have been nice to sit outside too.

Everything here is amazing. Apart from the incredible building and perfect setting, all credit has to go to the staff who just want to make you feel special. Nothing is too much trouble.

Hope to make another trip here soon. Greywalls does Scotland proud.

Was here with friends for Afternoon tea and met by friendly young man who showed us to our table and then our order taken. Afternoon tea was so nicely presented and lady who brought it explained what everything was. We all agreed the scones were best we had tasted in a long time and sandwich fingers, macaroons and various cakes were all delicious and extra tea and coffee brought when requested. Afterwards we walked round the beautiful well stocked gardens then had a seat outside. This place offers good professional service, courtesy and old world charm. Look forward to returning 😁
