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 clean, with all mod cons. It was beautifully furnished with antiques, but comfortable enough to relax in.
Helen the housekeeper cooked us a lovely dinner each night The food was excellent, mostly local produce, well cooked and presented. It was served in the blue still room. It was an experience to eat in a room surrounded by antique china. A nice touch was a complimentary bottle of wine for our Anniversary. Breakfast was also served here. Again the food was freshly cooked and plentiful.
After dinner we went into the low drawing room for coffee. The fire was lit and you could spend the rest of the evening there. If you wanted a drink you could help yourself from an honesty cabinet. We had a key to the room and you could come and go as you wanted. You were surrounded by beautiful objects with no restrictions or do not touch notices!
You were free to explore the house before visitors were admitted, this was pleasurable as you could take your time and take in the history of this very old house.
In fact you felt more like a house guest than a paying customer. Every member of staff we met was pleasant and efficient.
If you want a lovely quiet break with a difference this could be the place for you.
We will return.
