As always both Barbra and Chris never fail to extend a fantastic welcome to their stunning house. I have stayed several times now and look forward to sampling everything luxury next year. For anyone looking for a real treat whilst holidaying/ visiting Edinburgh you won't be disappointed staying at this stunning house.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for just one night (should have stretched the budget and stayed for two nights) It was a stunning hotel, fantastic experience and worth the money. I really enjoyed the amount of space we had, the bed was ultra-comfortable and the bathroom was stunning, the shower had great pressure and didn't go hot and cold.... More

The place itself in a very quiet location on the western outskirts of Haddington is simply fantastic. When we arrived, a small child invited us to come in and follow her in to the bowels of... More

The entrance to Letham House is on a beautiful small tree-line country road. We came from 2 days in Edinburgh. We only were able to spend one night in Haddington and we are sure glad we did. Barbara and Chris were very kind and welcoming. We were a bit ragged from travel thus we probably were not the most communicative... More

I was one of a party of five, two were regulars and knew what to expect, but everyone else was stunned at just how wonderful Letham House is.

A pleasure to stay in such a comfortable and beautiful private home. As usual, being made very welcome, excellent breakfasts ( and tea and dinner if requested) make for a really enjoyable stay. Rooms are all well equipped and bathrooms modern with every amenity.
