I have very mixed reviews of Traquair. For the bi-annual fair, I think it is a fantastic day or two out. There is entertainment on in the walled garden all day and you can browse the many stalls and explore the maze and grounds. However, I went to their Easter Sunday family egg hunt, were I was left feeling rather... More

My husband booked a 2 night stay at Traquair house on the 8th,9th November for my 50th birthday treat. A wonderful surprise as I didn't know where we were going until we passed the famous bear gates and turned into the drive way. We had a wonderful weekend in the white room and were well looked after by Helen, the... More

I had planned to stay at Traquair as a treat to myself after a month in Scotland. This is a magical place and to have the opportunity to stay in a beautiful room, have the use of the lower drawing room and breakfast in the Still Room made my dream come true. The castle is a home with priceless pieces... More

We've just had a two night stay at Trequair House to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We were greeted by the housekeeper who showed us to our room and explained which other rooms were available for our use. We stayed in the pink room which was reached via a stone spiral staircase in the main house. The room was spacious. spotlessly... More

I stayed for two nights here as a 50th birthday treat. The room was incredible and having the drawing room to use was unexpected and made my stay extra special. I loved the little extras - like the Traquair House souvenir guide, mints and bottle of ale left in my room. Thank you so much also for the bottle of... More

We spent one night at Traquair and really enjoyed it. We have visited this wonderful house three times before but not stayed, it was a great experience to stay in a building hundreds of years old with such a rich and historic past. The white room was splendid and breakfast delicious. Recommended.

We last visited here over 20 years ago and loved the hand typed (and corrected) details for exhibits. There has been a bit of an upgrade but we were delighted to see that the lack of commercial slickness you find in other places has not yet arrived at Traquair. We left, as before, with a large smile of joy and... More

Our first impression of Traquair House was one of awe and expectation. We arrived shortly after 'Traquair House' had closed to visitors for the day. We loved the long driveway and being ushered through the grand main gates and invited to park our vehicle conveniently by the front door. Our hostess, Helen, offered a very warm welcome, and showed us... More

We were staying at Cardrona, not far from Traquair, the oldest inhabited house in Scotland, so had to pay a visit. The entry was very reasonable at £8.00 given that there is the house to see, a lovely chapel, super grounds, including a maze, walled garden, pond-side walk etc, and there is a brewery, restaurant and gift shop too. We... More
