We welcome you to Garleton Lodge, our luxury B&B/small hotel, restaurant & spa – and our home – in the heart of East Lothian … Edinburgh’s Coast & Countryside.
From our hilltop position offering spectacular 360-degree panoramic views across Edinburgh, the Forth and surrounding countryside, we offer our guests a choice of six en-suite rooms (four double/twin rooms and two one-bedroom loft suites) with full facilities including lounge with fully stocked bar, restaurant, BBQ hut, spa/treatment room, hot tub, relaxation room and golf facilities including club storage, drying room, practice bunker and putting green.
Situated less than 30 minutes from Edinburgh City Centre & Airport, Garleton Lodge offers a great location for your weekend getaway or longer stay. We provide an ideal base for golf parties playing the numerous courses on Scotland’s Golf Coast as well as a unique venue for your corporate event, private party or special celebration.
Garleton Lodge holds Visit Scotland 5-star accreditation and our restaurant has also been awarded a Visit Scotland Taste Our Best Award each year in 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 & 2020/21. Voted as the TripAdvisor No.1 Best Value Place to Stay in East Lothian and awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in both 2018 & 2019 and a Traveller’s Choice Award in 2020 & 2021, we have also been awarded a MUST Stay and FEATURED MUST by Must Visit Scotland and showcased by The Scotsman in their Travel Guide 2018 branded Spirited Hospitality.
We have our Visit Scotland ‘Good To Go’ accreditation in place – the national industry standard for tourism post lockdown (now also endorsed by the World Travel & Tourism Council) – and were showcased by Visit Scotland as one of their Get Tourism Ready Case Studies.
We look forward to welcoming you to Garleton Lodge!
