“Among the best hospitality and gourmet kitchen ever”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

We had an excellent New Year's Eve (hogmanay) with a great dinner and fireworks in the park.
The house and the park are beautiful. Each room is nicely furbished and decorated, each in its individual style (largest Molton Brown selection ever had in 20 years of luxury travelling).
The staff is high class mannered.
Owners are taking care of every detail.

Dear Estelle,

Thank you for your review,

We had a great new years celebration and are very happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself.

We work very hard to perfect and maintain Boath House and the detail is extremely important. Very appreciative when guests notice and enjoy the hard work.

We hope to welcome you again in 2014.

Many Thanks,

George Murdoch

We first stayed at Boath House Hotel around 1998 and have returned every year since - sometimes twice a year. The owners, Wendy and Don, are wonderful hosts and their staff are also lovely folk, all determined to make your stay an enjoyable experience. We rate dinner in the hotel as the finest eating experience in Scotland. The grounds, which have been lovingly restored by Wendy and Don are so relaxing and worth a morning and evening stroll and the small lake adds to the many attractions.To sit in the walled garden with a bottle of wine is as good as it gets. My wee Westie, Mairibeg, loves her visits there also.
To Wendy and Don I say, 'lang may yer lum reek' and all going well we will see you again in 2014.
June and Ian Green, Longniddry, East Lothian.

Room Tip: We use the small cottage which is ideal for our pet Westie.

Boath house had come to us as a recommendation and we certainly weren't disappointed. From the point of arrival we were treated like family by the amazing staff. Our room was huge and beautifully appointed, the michelin starred restaurant lived up to his name and the cocktail/wine list a real treat. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat with some of the UK's best food then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: room 3 now has a king sized bed and not the bed in the image, it also has a pair of free standing ba...

We were greeted with the warmth of fires, candles, antler chandeliers, and friendly staff. Our room was soooooo amazing, cannot begin to describe the lovely feeling of having everything just working so perfectly. Hot water as soon as you turn on the taps, shutters that fold away easily and noiselessly, wonderful chest of drawers and wardrobes, thick and pristine carpets...everything finished to the highest standard.

After a delicious breakfast, the best I've EVER had, we had a fantastic time exploring the grounds on an idyllic winter morning. Robins fluttering through the falling leaves, translucent ice sheets covering the lake, a misty frost covering the lawns, very romantic setting for a morning stroll.

Staff really tied the whole experience together. Extremely knowledgeable yet affable and gregarious. We were all on first name terms by the time we left and felt like we could have stayed forever!

We were very excited about dining in the prestigious restaurant and it did not disappoint. The 6 course meal just got better and better, leaving us with warm and fuzzy feeling after.

All in all, a perfect stay in the perfect place, could not have asked for any more and thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Room 4. I was cheeky enough to ask for a sneak preview in some of the other rooms, and have to say o...

Absolutely flawless experience with impeccable attention to detail. Walking in to the smell of old wood, the beautiful soft carpets, high ceilings, crackling fire and luxurious sofas, we knew we were going to be spoiled.

Our room was absolutely magnificent, expertly lit, perfectly warm, ornate furniture and stunning four poster bed with whiter than white sheets, immaculately pressed.

We enjoyed the most delicious breakfast we have ever had, delicious tea and bread, then porridge and exquisite smoked haddock. We then went around the charming grounds to walk off our full bellies. The frosty lake, apple trees and fields with hay bales, all enchanting in the clear winter morning.

The experience was made even more memorable by the professional yet friendly and extremely helpful staff; all of whom obviously take great pride in offering high end service. Mary, Sam, and Emma all made us feel so at home and acquiesced to every request with enthusiasm. We had tea brought out to us on a freezing day, we had a dvd player brought up to our room, we had extra helpings, ontop of extra helpings, of delicious toast brought to us at breakfast. We have never been treated so royally. Obviously great care is taken to ensure only the very best staff are employed here, all of whom had expert knowledge on all the food and drink on offer.

The 6 course dinner was a once in a life time experience, the cured roe deer a taste a particular delight.

Cannot recommend this place highly enough, the best few days holiday of our lives, and the perfect place to honeymoon.

Thankyou very much to all the staff and owners

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4, and it was simply divine, highly recommended

Enjoyed a weekend break for our anniversary. Totally relaxing from the moment we arrived until we left. Lovely if slightly quirky room, staff were great, and the food was outstanding. The gardens and grounds provided a beautiful backdrop. Will definitely be back. They also have some interesting art works on display and managed to pick up a very nice painting as an anniversary present for my wife.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different but all great.

Don't really know where to start. We have stayed in some excellent places and this is up with the best of them. Room,staff,house,gardens and the food!!!! Sometimes things just come together and it's right. This home has been rebuilt by the present owners from the ground up, with every attention to detail, with love and it shows. The house is not just part of their history, but yours as well. Go and enjoy it with them. Our dog loved it too. Thanks to Wendy, Don and Sam, all the staff and the girl on work experience!......sign her up!
