Macdonald Houstoun House at Macdonald Houstoun House part of Macdonald Hotel & Resorts

Houstoun House Hotel was designed to be as relaxing as it is impressive. And few places are as relaxing as the hotel's leisure centre. Created around a wonderful 18 metre swimming pool with open views across the hotels grounds, the leisure centre includes sauna, steam room and gymnasium.

Set within 20 acres of mature woodlands, the hotel comprises a 16th Century tower house and steading. Retaining its original character and offering exclusivity and seclusion, it's hard to believe Edinburgh and Glasgow are within such easy reach. Close by are many places rich in history such as Linlithgow and its ancient palace.

Outdoors, you can enjoy a gentle stroll around the beautiful hotel grounds or take in a round at the nearby Uphall Golf Course. Inside or out, Houstoun House is a hotel to treasure.

Really enjoyed the spa day at Mcdonald Houston House Hotel. Had a full body massage which was perfect and afternoon tea was excellent. Tasty sandwiches, cakes, and warm cooked scones. Delicious!! Would definitely go back and would recommend to friends and family.

when we arrived there was no one around, i had to ring the reception while i was stood in front of the desk to try and alert them i was waiting, it went through to the hotel and they tried to get into contact with the staff by the ringing the reception desk i was stood at where no one was! very bad start with no apology! the facilitys are ok nothing special and not very clean. BUT, i have to say the treatments were fantastic and the the staff there fantastic. i left feeling very pampered. and the lunch was very nice too. such a shame about the start.

The spa is very tired & run down. Rusty pool side & water cooler. There was a refurb going on while I was there (which I was not advised about before hand) so not the most enjoyable. The jugs provided for water had cracked spouts & although the staff that were there were lovely, there simply wasn't enough. Sadly I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

Very friendly, knowledgable staff. Enjoyed every minute of our time spent at the spa! Can't wait to go back again and see the renovations when they are complete.

My mother and I had a wonderful spa day in February. There were only a few of us at the Hotel, so it was wonderfully peaceful. The staff were very friendly and the treatments were excellent.

Excellent day overall - only comment is that having a slightly bright spot lamp in relaxation room would be better to read by. Perhaps more loungers by pool as well as they got filled up at some stages during day. Staff very friendly

Had a wonderful day at MacDonald Houston House Hotel

I was the only one there on a spa day so was well looked after by all the staff. The lunch was excellent - love the boxes. I had the thai beef and noodles

I had the pool to myself several times during the day which was a bonus

I had a facial included in my deal but also purchased a back, neck and shoulder massage on the day. The therapist was excellent - firm but not painful.

My only negatives for the day and things that the spa could do better was

- relaxation room for using before and after spa was not very relaxing - it needs to be more like the one at Inchyra and Marine Hotel at North Berwick which was very relaxing and able to lie down properly
- Would benefit from a jacuzzi
