Garleton Lodge – A Beautiful Stage with Stunning Views

Garleton Lodge is the result of more than 20 years planning! Our dream has been to provide guests with a comfortable, luxury place to stay underpinned by high quality food and drink in a relaxed and peaceful countryside setting – this is now a reality!

When we first discovered Garleton Lodge we fell in love with its hilltop setting, the views and its position in the Heart of East Lothian – a location renowned for good food & drink and golf; all elements which are an integral part of what we offer our guests. Over the Winter 2016/17, we completely refurbished and refurnished the property relaunching Garleton Lodge in April 2017.

We are very proud of what we have created and delighted that Visit Scotland have not only provided us with five star accreditation but also awarded our restaurant a Visit Scotland Taste Our Best Award each year in 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 & 2020/21. Visit Scotland added a Gold Award in 2018 “in recognition of our business being one which consistently achieves the highest levels of excellence within their VisitScotland star grading – excelling in the areas of customer care and hospitality”. Together with our TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2018 & 2019 and Traveller’s Choice Award in 2020 & 2021, we are feeling pretty proud of what we have achieved so far!

Our guests have also voted Garleton Lodge as the No.1 Best Value Place to Stay in East Lothian on TripAdvisor. Must Visit Scotland also awarded us with a MUST Stay and FEATURED MUST following their visit and we were featured by The Scotsman in their Travel Guide 2018 branded Spirited Hospitality.

We hope that you will also like it – we look forward to welcoming you as our guest at Garleton Lodge … and into our home.
