A nice small Family run hotel. Very spacious room, comfortable bed, and roomy en-suit. The staff were polite, cheery and very helpful. There is a cosy Public Bar forming part of the hotel. The food that was served was wholesome and tasty.

I stayed here for a week in June and I really enjoyed my time here. All the staff, from the owner to the bartender were super friendly. My single bedroom was pretty small, but it was in a little cottage in the back garden off the main house. If you're looking for quaint, this is it. The pub in the... More

We spent two days here to see the sights of Edinburgh, but it could also be a great hub to explore Glasgow as well. It is a about half way between the two cities. It is so quiet and restful compared to the inner city hotels. The house is a lovely 1812 manor beautifully kept. Our room was large with... More

A very welcoming hotel with the feel of being family run, not the big faceless corporate style. Tastefully decorated with spacious rooms, Breakfast was plentiful and tasty, again not the usual hotel chain meals. On the side of the hotel there is a small bar for relaxing in.

We held a family reunion at this hotel and were served in the conservatory. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and efficient and made us feel very welcome. My brother from the USA stayed here and was complementary about the room and breakfast.

The picturesque charm of Bankton House Hotel is not easy to define. Set within its own grounds, linking directly to the foot paths and cycle routes of Murieston waters, the country settings can be easily enjoyed by its guests and visitors.The stately Georgian architecture imbues a feeling of elegance and style while the grounds that surround the hotel insulate it from the day to day, fostering a peaceful ambiance; especially benefiting those city commuters seeking B&B in relaxed accommodation with en-suite rooms that draw in the peace and tranquility of its settings through their Georgian windows adding too each, in their uniqueness, of luxury and comfort. With the cities of Edinburgh & Glasgow a 20 minute train ride away, makes this ideal lodgings, after a day in the hustle and bustle of the city, with the Livingston South railway link only a short 2 minute walk from the grounds. ... more   less
