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

Divine souffle
Isa B

Champagne in front of a roaring fire, a divine starter of Souffle Suissesse, superb service. The whole meal was perfect. Couldn't be better. Do take a walk through the pretty gardens. It is a wonderful house in a stunning situation.

Chez Roux Best meal in years

The setting and ambience started us well with a drink in the old sitting room. The service was good, marginally unctuous but attentive. The petit fours, startser and main course were frankly superb, I had grouse which was tender like I have never experience and my wif's Halibut was so good we went and bought some to try and cook it ourselves the next day, The results weren't as good! The price did match the standard of food!

An enchanting country house!

An impromptu drive on a nice summers day took us to Greywalls; Gullane. I went across with my wife, son (2 years old), and daughter (4 months old) for a ‘light lunch’.

On arrival we were courteously seen to by the staff, and chose to sit outside in the beautiful garden. I had a mocha, and my wife a hot chocolate - both fantastically presented, and delicious, accompanied by two lovely cheese and ham toasties with a nice side salad garnish.

We had a stroll around the beautiful gardens, and got to meet the resident tortoises (that were 80+ years old), the gardener kindly let my son feed them some lettuce.

We really liked the quirky garden statues scattered across the garden - and we will definitely be back again.
