This is a very special place. Décor: Glam Scottish; Setting: countryside in the middle of the city; Cuisine: serous; Service: friendly but professional. For those of modest means probably only for special anniversaries, however the Rhubarb Restaurant does do special offers which means more people can enjoy the luxurious ambience.

Definitely the best afternoon tea I´ve ever experienced. The venue is spectacular, the food and drink first class and the service faultless. I will certainly be staying at the hotel in the not too distant future!

The weekend of the wedding, my wife stayed the night prior to wedding on the... More

We were very fortunate to spend 3 nights at Prestonfield last week. The hotel is beautiful in itself, but the staff are wonderful and made it a short break we'll remember for a very long time. A little slice of luxury in this beautiful setting was an absolute joy.

A small castle in a middle of large park, just 5 mins from the historic downtown, beautifully restored and decorated very much in a Scottish style. An absolutely lovely place to stay, even if totally overbooked during this Ryder's Cup weekend. Delicious breakfast in an room overlooking a large park and a wine list of millenium, extensive and very inexpensive... More

Stopped by Prestonfield for a couple of nights based on trip advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. How they managed to fit such an old building in amongst all those bungalows I'll never know! The hotel is a couple of miles out of the city, a fair walk but beautifully situated. It's an oasis of quiet and calm with... More

Dropped in for afternoon tea at Prestonfield House. Lovely location with peacocks in the garden.. All the young staff were friendly but professional. Afternoon tea £20 per head nice selection of sandwiches, savouries, scones and cakes. Tea refilled several times all in all well worth it.

We did not stay here, but we walked here from the Royal mile (2 miles) to see their Highland Cattle (Hairy Coos). They have beautiful grounds, with peacocks walking around. Built in 1687 with only 23 rooms.
