This property has to be the most beautiful I've ever stayed in. The bedroom and bathroom was magnificent, the bed comfortable and the room well appointed. Breakfast was served in the dining room and was made fresh to order. We were well looked after, a return is definitely on the cards.

Letham House is a home of genteel beauty, and, perhaps unexpectedly, sincere kindness. Last week, the 17th century doors opened themselves to this professionally stressed-out woman, taking a four-night vacation at a really inconvenient time (we were visiting our son who is at school in Gifford). By the time we said our goodbyes to the gracious Barbara and Chris, I... More

This time of year Letham is an island surrounded by a sea of spring flowers and blossoming trees. Barbara is a warm and welcoming hostess; I believe she is quite intuitive about peoples needs- the only thing imposing is the beauty of the house. We were given a choice of rooms on arrival which was very thoughtful. The first thing... More

I stayed here with clients. Its more of a stay at a house than a hotel. We were met on arrival by the owner who showed us to 3 of their 6 rooms. My room was large and very tastefully decorated and had a really good en suite shower room. Drinks were served in the Drawing Room whilst dinner was... More

We booked Letham House at the last minute for our yearly anniversary trip and it turned out to be one of the best in 28 years. Absolutely delightful. Barbara is a very friendly but not overwhelming host, sensitive and thoughtful about everything. Beautiful rooms, huge comfy bed, best bath I've ever been in, roaring fire, and a fantastic meal. Everything... More

We came to Letham House for an overnight stay out of Edinburgh. We were greeted most warmly by Barbara, who overall made this stay feel like 'being at home'. Very beautiful property, cozy rooms, and lovely home-prepared breakfast! Haddington town is beautiful and had an amazing local atmosphere and lovely small shops especially with the Christmas decoration everywhere. Would highly... More

Went to Letham House for a bit of R&R after a tough couple of weeks, couldn't have asked for better hosts in Barbara and Chris. Lovely rooms, very comfy beds! Evening meal was delicious, we had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Would recommend to anyone who wants a night away, only a short stones throw away from Edinburgh.

From the first minute to the last of our 6-day stay at Letham House everything was just perfect. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Barbara and served with tea and home-made cake. Our room was beautifully appointed and looked out over the extensive gardens at the back of the hotel which is set well back from the road and as... More
