We not only stayed at Traquair House but got married there. It was an excellent experience, from our first contact with the event coordinator to the time we checked out. They helped us organize the wedding, made sure our stay was comfortable and even let us in on some extras like a ghost walk on Halloween. The whole experience was extremely positive and the staff were the absolute best.
Our room was clean and very well laid out; there are some 5 star hotels that could learn from how well the room was cleaned and prepared. We were immediately checked in on arrival and shown to our room, which was loaded with little extras, from a bottle of Traquair beer to a free bottle of champagne for the wedding. Everything was as comfortable as you could ask for, from warm towels in the bathroom to a fire going in the drawing room.
Other people staying the night at the same time also expressed the opinion that it was a very well run place, with all the attention to detail and comfort that you could want.
I would like to mention some staff members who made it a great experience: Katy Lockett, the event coordinator, was super friendly and amazingly efficient from our first contact with her to when we saw her during check in. Katy's organizational genius really contributed to our wedding going so smooth.
Helen, the housekeeper, was not only a great cook, but helped make our wedding go smooth and was always there for any little thing that we needed. Helen is very witty and absolutely imperturbable.
The grounds are very interesting, from the hedge maze to the gardens. It's a beautiful, well run place with incredible service. If you get a chance to stay there, do it. If you are looking for a wedding venue, this is one of the absolute best.
