‘Excellent, stunning, fantastic’ is how one recent guest described his stay at Greywalls on TripAdvisor.
To which we would only add the word ‘elegant’.
Experience it for yourself with this Big Deal on a two night stay at Greywalls Hotel at Muirfield in East Lothian.
An Edwardian country house, Greywalls Hotel is right on the edge of Muirfield championship golf course and has stunning views over East Lothian and the Firth of Forth.
Overlooking the world famous greens of the ninth and eighteenth holes, it has earned itself a reputation as a golfers’ paradise.
Not that you need to be a golfer to enjoy Greywalls’ charms. The area round the hotel is fantastic for coastal walks, wildlife watching and exploring castles such as Tantallon.
The five star hotel itself is beautiful and its Chez Roux restaurant, which serves dishes created by Albert Roux, is a winner of the Hotel Restaurant of the Year at the Scottish Restaurant Awards.
Two night stay
Available seven days a week in February and March, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a two night stay in a large double room with a delicious, full Scottish breakfast each morning.
There is a £50 supplement, payable per night, for Saturday night stays.
All 23 of the ensuite bedrooms at Greywalls are unique and each has its own décor and antique furnishings.
Most rooms enjoy uninterrupted views either over Muirfield and the Firth of Forth, or over the gardens and the gentle rolling farmland to the Lammermuir Hills.
Greywalls is a member of The Collection, a group of small, luxury hotels under the management of ICMI.
The award-winning restaurant at Greywalls Hotel is the brainchild of super chef Albert Roux. He describes his dishes as ‘French classical cuisine with a flair and lightness, using local product as much as possible.’
Breakfast is included in the offer. Should you choose to take lunch or dinner at Chez Roux then you are in for truly memorable meal.
The menus change regularly. A typical meal at Chez Roux might start with the hand-picked crab Marie rose, plum tomato gazpacho, pickled melon and cucumber with pea mousse followed by the ballotine of St Brides guinea fowl, caramelised chicory with orange, herb gnocchi and Parmesan velouté.
Greywalls Hotel has been making happy holiday memories for over a hundred years. This is what a recent visitor thought:
‘Excellent, stunning, fantastic. Where does one start? If (you are) a golfing nut the Hotel is situated next to Muirfield Golf Club, home of many a British Open and thus the hotel is full of memorabilia of players who have stayed during many an event. Inside, it is something out of an Agatha Christie novel. Book-lined lounges, nooks, crannies, twists and turns. A lovely conservatory and views over the golf course to the sea. Now to the food. Flavours, colours, presentation, choices that swept me and my guests into a world of enjoyment and delight. Not a clean plate in sight. Heaven for a foodie… Charming, knowledgeable, friendly staff who are a credit to the restaurant.’
With vouchers valid for stays in February and March, this Greywalls offer could be used for a generous Valentine’s gift.
A luxurious two night break in a five star hotel would make someone very happy.
