First time in Scotland. The hotel was booked by a good friend of ours so we did not know what to expect. As it was a very highly rated hotel, we expected to find a snobby over-priced etc. hotel. Immediately upon arrival, we were taken by the super friendly, down to earth staff in kilts. It almost felt like we... More

What can I say about Prestonfield? It's expensive, luxurious, a bit tricky to find but, more than this, it's an absolute delight. We have just returned from my niece's wedding there, in the stables, and we stayed in the Lord Provost suite. We loved everything; the setting is beautiful, staff are attentive and helpful, rooms are luxurious, breakfast was delicious... More

Ever want to feel like royalty? Well, at Prestonfield, they delivered, big time. My wife and I spent a night there for my 40th birthday this week and were treated to an experience unlike anything I've ever experienced. The staff was amazing, the Provost Suite was lush and the restaurant (Rhubard) was decadent. Could not have asked for anything better.

Absolutely wonderful although I was only a guest for the day/evening. Well attended grounds. All the rooms are beautifully utilised. I'm particularly taken with some of the antler seating in the whiskey room. Very indulgent surroundings and food.

Had a very authentic and delicious traditional 5 course Scottish dinner here. The atmosphere was wonderful, service was faultless, and the food excellent. The haggis dish paired with Scottish single malt whisky was the best I even had. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

This hotel is beautiful and full of atmosphere of a bygone age. We visited for my nephew's wedding tea. On arrival we sat outside in the sunshine sipping champagne. Lovely grounds. Dainty sandwiches with scrumptious fillings were followed by homemade scones with homemade raspberry jam which was out of this world.

Normally go to Prestonfield for afternoon tea, but decided to go to Rhubarb for lunch. Food excellent and compliments to the chefs. But service poor. Table booked for 1230. Arrived and waited a good 5 minutes before any staff appeared. Then waited another 5 minutes. Told the tables were not ready so asked to take a seat outside and order... More

Spent a couple of nights here on way back from Torridon. Room amazing, building stunning, short taxi ride to town but restaurant experience not so good. Girlfriends birthday treat and service slow, food average. Sure it was an off day as this is a top hotel, but my girlfriend got so upset she had to go back to the room.... More

Very nice hotel with excellent staff. Food was fantastic and the rooms have all you could need. We were there for a family wedding so the grounds were perfect for photographs. There are also peacocks.

Thanks for all the wonderful time spent in magnificent halls and rooms of the historical Prestonfield House, taking tea with your home-scones, and especially, many thanks (спасибо!) to the Russian-speaking waitress Jelena who helped us making our guests feeling welcome and at home. The all kept unforgettable memories of their visit. Emile Gallin
