Overlooking the roaring wash of the Firth of Forth, the Edwardian stones of the Greywalls Hotel are set amid the perennial majesty of East Lothian’s golfing district. This diverse stretch of Caledonia is crowned with hunching crags and cliff tops, encircling the busy streets and ghostly skyline of Edinburgh in an expanse of solemn heathlands and villages. Speckled with relics of a rich and tumultuous history, the area lays claim to stoic castles, stately houses, and shimmering sand flats, beguiling wayfarers with a distinct yet otherworldly character all of its own.

The Hotel
Fringed by the well-groomed greens of a neighbouring golf club, the award-winning Greywalls Hotel delights guests with its Edwardian stylings and thoroughly modern comforts. The slate and stone of this country house conceal 23 individually decorated rooms complete with en-suite facilities, telephones, and television. Visitors can celebrate their arrival with a glass of Prosecco, elegantly whetting whistles for a traditional afternoon tea comprising a loose leaf brew, finger sandwiches, fresh scones with cream, and a selection of other fancies. The hotel is splendidly ensconced amid a classical walled garden striped with fragrant, herbaceous borders and framed by a wall built in local honey-coloured stone. When not filling up on a hearty breakfast each morning, epicurean travellers may like to treat themselves to authentically prepared French cuisine from the hotel’s Chez Roux restaurant, which is personally overseen by renowned chef Albert Roux.



Groupon Recommends
History-loving wanderers can explore the maudlin ruins of Hailes Castle, which is rumoured to have been the former hideout of Mary Queen of Scot’s husband and features a rather unnerving dungeon. A breezy trip two miles from the hotel will take visitors to the Aberlady Nature Reserve, which encompasses a mudflat that’s three miles in length and conceals the wrecks of two First World War submarines. Hopping aboard a boat from North Berwick Harbour, seafarers can sail to Bass Rock, an island outcrop which boasts a chattering throng of seabirds ranging from gannets and guillemots to the humble puffin. If making the short voyage to Edinburgh, savvy travellers can surmount the majestic Arthur’s Seat for an unrivalled view of both the city and the surrounding countryside.



Local Amenities
Nearby Haddington can fulfil all essential grocery needs with its familiar chains and market town charm. Boutiquey buys and haute couture shopping will necessitate an afternoon in Edinburgh, where the high street outlets of Princes Street and Old Town’s rarefied curios will satisfy the most discerning bargain-hunter. Similarly, the towns and villages surrounding the hotel offer a homely clutch of pubs and cafes, while those seeking cosmopolitan restaurants and nightlife should dip into central Edinburgh, whether looking for a wee dram or a wine bar.



Transport
Flights: Low-cost flights to Edinburgh International Airport available from London Stansted, Birmingham, and Cardiff.
Trains: Low-cost trips to Edinburgh Waverley are available from London Kings Cross, Manchester Piccadilly, and Birmingham New Street.
Airport: Edinburgh International Airport is roughly 30 miles from the hotel.
Railway station: Edinburgh Waverley station is roughly 20 miles from the hotel.
Car hire: Various operators available from the Edinburgh area.



Groupon Top Tip
When ascending Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, be sure to spit on the Heart of Midlothian that’s laid into the cobbles. It may seem vulgar, but it’s supposed to bring good luck.

 

Reviews

The charming chambers and stately grounds at the Greywalls Hotel provided a healthy bit of rest and relaxation for many guests. The tasty food and welcoming staff also received a significant amount of praise, as they helped make for a perfect Caledonian getaway. The hotel received a loch-sized 4.5/5 stars from users on TripAdvisor.

The staff are extremely committed and keen to ensure that your stay is perfect. They are also knowledgeable about the hotel and the food they serve. Our evening meal and breakfast were delicious and we certainly did not need to remind the staff who was eating what.
Shona-Charlie, TripAdvisor, November 2011

Greywalls is a beautiful hotel in an absolutely gorgeous location. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and the atmosphere welcoming, comfortable and relaxing.
