Just a quick note to say "Thank You" for making our wedding day so special. Not only did we have a great day and weekend, our guests did too!! Everyone's professionalism shone through from the start. Thank you again & a special mention for barman Jack who was a star!! 

Sarah and Iain

March 2017

Iain and I would just like to say a huge thank you to you all, to Andrew and the staff who made our day the most perfect, beautiful day. We really had the best day. Your support and reassurance over the last year and in the lead up made everything so much less stressful and I felt so happy leaving our big day in your hands. Thank you to Louise who was there on the day and also to Andrew who Iain wanted to send his personal thanks for making him feel so relaxed on the morning and also helping him out with last minute bits. We both felt so relaxed and there was no part of the day that we would change. 

We are so happy we chose Houstoun House for our wedding and we will be back often as it is a special place to us now. 

Thank you again for being part of our special day and helping to make it the perfect day that it was.

Gemma and Scott

September 2016

Thank you for all of your help and support in helping deliver what was a truly fantastic wedding! We had the most wonderful of days & seeing all of our planning come together was just fantastic. The room in particular looked amazing & really exceeded our expectations.  

Everyone at the hotel was great, please pass on our thanks to everyone including Giovanni.  

From the moment we first met Herve at our initial visit to the hotel to the moment we arrived as husband & wife you looked after us.  All of guests were well looked after and the food was tremendously executed, we didn't hear anything except praise for it all.   Even our morning breakfast buffet exceeded expectations!! 

Lauren and Scott

September 2016

Married here a week ago, had a wonderful time. The venue is in a beautiful setting, with lovely grounds & the old style building. The food was also lovely & beautifully presented. The staff were fab, particularly Lorraine who was always on hand to answer any questions on the lead up to the wedding & helped to manage & deal with queries on the day. The accommodation for staying over is also very good xx

Cannot thank everyone at this wonderful venue enough for everything they have done for us! Stepping in to save our wedding with 10 weeks notice and providing us with the perfect day we'd always imagined and so much more! Thanks to Louise for an exceptional service from start to finish and for doing everything in her power to give us everything we wished for and to Gianni for making sure it all ran smoothly on the day and treating each of our guest so well in such a personal way! We cannot recommend this venue highly enough and I know all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their day in your magical setting!

Mr & Mrs Oakes

July 2016

We made an everlasting memory for ourselves, family & friends by choosing to have our wedding at this venue. The grounds and venue in our pictures are exactly what we wanted and more. The whole day was sheer perfection. Everyone was made to feel relaxed and attended too. The meal was divine and loved by all. Our stay was wonderful and having breakfast the next day as Mr & Mrs Oakes with all our guests was a heartfelt personal touch. There was nothing they couldn't do to make our party feel welcomed and comfortable. Thank you to the Wedding Team for all your time, effort and patience. We cannot thank you enough, Mr & Mrs Oakes

Adam & Nadia

Your help throughout has been fantastic and all our family and other guests commented many times on what a great location we'd chosen, how fantastic the food was and how they all had enjoyed the day as much as Angie and I had.

My husband and I were married here and stayed for three days after our wedding day in the honeymoon suite before going on our honeymoon, the staff including Lorraine who was our wedding coordinator were super good to us, they made our day extra extraordinary. 

Austin & Lisa Maguire

April 2016

I'd like to say that we had, undoubtedly, the very best time of our lives on that day and it was largely due to the incredible service we have received from the staff at the hotel.

I know I speak for both my wife and I when I thank the staff from MacDonald Houstoun House from the very bottom of our hearts and cannot wait to return to celebrate our anniversary in the beautiful hotel and reminiscing over all the amazing memories we have.


Jo & Michael

Whilst planning our wedding and on the day your staff were truly amazing and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect.  

Kelly & John

The team were exceptional across all of the functions of the hotel on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Catherine was a star and really did pull out all the stops to deliver what we needed.  Gianni was magnificent and his manner was completely on point, very calm, clear and assured.
