Country house ambience
These days, most guests visit because they love the country house elegance of this Edwardian destination. The marvellous Chez Roux restaurant; the tranquillity of the walled gardens and the warm, unobtrusive service all help complete the picture.
A Relais and Chateaux hotel, Greywalls is in East Lothian and within a half hour drive of Edinburgh. A five star venue, it has won numerous awards including the Scottish Hotel Restaurant of the Year at the Scottish Restaurant Awards.
Today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay with full Scottish breakfast is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the charms of this discreetly luxurious hotel.
Available seven days a week, the offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a double cottage room at Greywalls Hotel with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
Each bedroom at Greywalls is unique, with its own décor and antique furnishings.
An intimate hotel, there are just 23 rooms at Greywalls including the cottage rooms which are located within a couple of minutes of the main building.
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.
This offer includes a full Scottish breakfast, cooked to order. If you choose to take other meals in the hotel then you can look forward to dining at Chez Roux.
An Albert Roux restaurant, the legendary French chef describes the food at Chez Roux as ‘French classical cuisine with a flair and lightness, using local product as much as possible.’
TripAdvisor reviewers are more effusive calling the food ‘delicious’, ‘of a really high standard’ and ‘excellent value’.

Greywalls Hotel has enchanted many visitors. This is what a recent guest thought:
‘A special place to stay. Took my husband for a birthday treat & it was so special. A seemingly effortless atmosphere of calm, quiet luxury envelops you from the moment you arrive. Lots of open fires & squashy comfy chairs, tea in the library, beautiful gardens, attentive staff. Our room was lovely, decorated with a Japanese theme & looking right out onto Muirfield. Apparently it was the room Nick Faldo stayed in on the two occasions that he won the Open. Our evening meal was superb, and for the standard & location, I thought it was well priced. Breakfast was of a good standard too, with cooked breakfasts to order.’
This Big Deal is a great opportunity to experience the Edwardian splendour of Greywalls Hotel. It would be perfect for a romantic getaway or simply a good excuse to treat yourself to a sumptuous break.
