The Colonel’s House can house up to eight people, with two of the bedrooms having en-suite bathrooms, another two have their bathroom outside the bedroom, and the last two are single rooms with a shared bathroom.

The Cottage Rooms are separate from the main hotel building, yet guests still benefit from the bespoke hotel amenities. There are four Large Cottage Rooms with king-size or twin beds, parking, bathrooms with bath and shower. And two Small Cottage Rooms with double beds, parking and bathrooms with shower.

The Chez Roux restaurant offers a fine dining experience that suits any occasion, season or time of day with excellent service and a welcoming yet refined atmosphere.

Enjoy some of Scotland’s finest golf at Muirfield Championship Golf Course or treat yourself to one of the massage treatments at the hotel.

Greywalls was built in 1901 for Alfred Lyttelton after he commissioned a renowned architect named Edwin Lutyens to design a home next to the Muirfield Golf Course. Originally the house was called High Walls, and its design was Lutyens’ Arts and Crafts style; he was also responsible for the garden layout.

In 1905 Evelyn Forbes and her husband William Dodge James purchased the house from Lyttelton and commissioned Lutyens to add three lodges to the property. Later in 1911, Sir Robert Lorimer built an extension for the James family. At the house, the Jameses entertained Edward VIII. After WW I, the house was leased, and in 1924 Sir James Horlick bought it.

During WW II, the house was used as a hospital, and Horlick left the property to his daughter and son-in-law, Colonel John Weaver. They transformed the house into a hotel in 1948. Over the years, the owners added several extensions, and the property is to this day managed by the Weaver family.
