Outstanding Venue
Macdonald Houstoun House is a wonderful venue with beautiful grounds and amazing staff. From the first moment we got in touch with them, through to our wedding day itself, they couldn't do enough for us. Caroline (the Events Manager) and the rest of the staff took excellent care of us, answering all of our questions and helping us with every step of the planning process. Our wedding day went without a hitch and all of our guests agreed it was a perfect day. We can't wait to go back and visit for our first anniversary - if not sooner!

Best venue for our perfect wedding
We can't thank Houstoun House Hotel and their staff enough for making our day so special. Nothing was too much for them. They helped make our day just how we wanted it by going above and beyond such as putting up outdoor lights in the courtyard and extra paper lanterns. Caroline was there every step of the way to help ease any nerves and answer any questions. Despite the weather preventing us from having an outdoor wedding, the staff was prepared for both scenarios. We had a lot of our guests stay the night before and after so they organised a breakfast the next again day. This allowed us to continue to celebrations. We couldn't recommend this venue enough.

The Best Day
Well what can I say, this truly is the most amazing venue run by a fantastic team. Caroline is the best at what she does, 10 out of 10, from our first meeting until the wedding day she kept us all on track and has such a natural warmth and genuine care for the married couple having the best day they can. Andrew and team were fantastic, we honestly felt like we were welcomed in by a lovely family for the weekend and nothing was too much to ask, testament to how well this hotel is run. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, we were lucky enough for the weather to clear and were married outside and it was just perfect. Our guests commented on what a wonderful day they had, fantastic food, fabulous staff and service. We genuinely shared lots of laughs and joy with this team, firmly cemented in our beautiful memories of the whole wedding experience, to which we are so grateful. If you are considering this venue then look no further, you won’t be disappointed.

Incredible day at Houstoun House
Andrew and I were so thrilled with the service and dedication we received from all members of staff at our wedding celebration in August 2022 at MacDonald Houstoun House. Throughout the whole process Caroline, the events manager, was helpful, friendly and ensured all our requests/needs were met. We were able to go for 2 separate menu tastings in order to have the best possible food and wine for our guests. Caroline led us through the plan for the day several times with patience and gave us helpful tips that helped us to make the most of our special day. The day itself ran without a hitch thanks to her, general manager Andrew and their dedicated team of staff. All guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, how well organised and ran the day was, the quality of the food and service. We didn't have a worry all day and couldn't be more thrilled with how the day ran overall. I would recommend Houstoun House as a wedding venue to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
