Stay at Traquair House

You are welcome to stay at Traquair House. There are three spacious double bedrooms furnished with antique furniture, canopied beds, private bathrooms and central heating. Available on a “bed and breakfast” basis.

Traquair Castle was originally owned by the kings of Scotland. It later became the home of the Earls of Traquair and is still lived in by the descendants of the Maxwell Stuart family. It is now well known as the oldest inhabited and most romantic house in Scotland. Part of the house is open to the public during the summer months.

For all booking enquiries please email enquiries@traquair.co.uk or telephone 01896 830323.

The Pink, Blue & White Rooms

Honeymoon Couples are particularly welcome for overnight stays, and receive a complimentary bottle of Traquair’s own French sparkling wine.

The Pink Room is a luxurious suite on the first floor of the house over looking the maze. Originally Lord Traquair’s room, it contains an 18th century trompe l’oeil over the fireplace.

The Blue and White Rooms are in the late 17th century wing of the House, on the ground floor, adjacent to the Lower Drawing Room, where guests can relax in the evening in front of an open fire. The Blue Room looks onto Cupid’s Garden while the White Room has excellent views up to the Bear Gates.

Breakfast & Dinner

Breakfast is served in the Still Room from 7:30am until 9.30am. Breakfasts are produced by our housekeeper and are highly praised! All dietary requirements can be accommodated – please take look at the Breakfast Menu.

Should you require evening meals the housekeeper may be available to provide dinner in the Still Room or, if you are arriving later, light refreshments. Take a look at an example of our B&B Dinner Menu and do not hesitate to contact us to see if the housekeeper is available.

Reviews

We stayed here one night in the Blue Room. Nice Friendly staff and lovely setting. Previous reviews said not suitable for disabled but although the tour may not be the B&B is perfectly accessible and you can drive your car right up to the door to unload. The public leave after 5.30 and the grounds are quiet. Lounge normally on show is open to use for guests, breakfast was fantastic – having been on our 6th night we were glad to finaly find good food, service and surroundings. The room is comfortable and really enjoyed being able to walk around the grounds at night with no crowds… We will be back

We had the exceptional pleasure of staying in the White Room for 2 nights. It was such a unique experience and exceeded our expectations…we appreciate all your kind attention and thank all the staff for a wonderful stay at Traquair House.

I love history and stayed in 21 of the oldest castles throughout England, Scotland, Northern & Southern Ireland, Wales and France.  “Which one was my favourite?”  My response is always the same, “Wow … they are all so special & unique.  It’s hard to pick”.  But, I usually come up with two in mind:  Leeds and Traquair.”

Thank you so much for our time at Traquair this year Catherine, we are very grateful for all the efforts your entire staff put in to our visit. Our accommodation was delightful, our meals were delicious and the ghost tour was the icing on the cake. We would love to come and stay again next year.
