Good Hotel Guide Review
Flanked by the shoreline and Muirfield golf course, and with nine other courses nearby, the Weaver family’s luxury hotel is a seaside haven for golfers. Managed by Duncan Fraser, the Edwardian honey-stone house stays true to the vision of its architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, that it be a ‘dignified holiday home’. Today, its plush rooms, afternoon teas, and well-maintained garden (attributed to Gertrude Jekyll) with croquet lawn, putting green and lawn tennis court, all create a civilised home-away-from-home feel. The restaurant deftly deploys locally sourced produce for classic French dishes; lighter meals are served in the bar/lounge. Broad views of the Firth of Forth or verdant fields are enjoyed from traditionally styled bedrooms. Fifteen minutes’ walk to the sea.
