After several nights in charming little B&B's we were ready for a bit of elegance, and the Prestonfield House did not disappoint. This is what it must have felt like to visit royalty a century ago. Elegance almost to the point of being overwhelming. A wonderfully quiet setting, beautiful grounds, and a short cab ride from the city sights. After... More

We had a marvellous stay at the Prestonfield House Hotel.. this is a truly special place. We ate at the Rhubard restaurant and the food was exquisite. The staff are warm, friendly and very accommodating.

My partner and I stayed at Prestonfield over the festive period, as we were keen to explore it as a possible wedding venue. The hotel itself despite being in an accessible city centre location, offers an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle and is set amongst sprawling fields with roaming wildlife. The interior of the hotel is bold, eccentric... More

We came to Prestonfield for my 40 th birthday. We had stayed at the Witchery 2 yrs previously and didn't think it could be topped but Prestonfield did just that. The service from our arrival was second to none and all the staff were lovely. The room was superb. The staff couldn't do enough for you. The atmosphere in the... More

Last year, my wife traveled to Manchester, UK for business, so I followed her there and we made a weekend trip out of visiting Edinburgh, Scotland. I wanted to find the nicest, most romantic place to take her in Edinburgh and chose the Prestonfield. I can not quite articulate my fondness of the place as it was charming in so... More

Recently had an 'unexpected' 1 night stay at this high quality Edinburgh Hotel ( the 'Mem Sahib' arranged it, as a 'belated' surprise Christmas Present) . Firstly, I should say that if you are looking for a trendy hotel with a pool or a fitness studio , then this place is not for you, as they dont have either of... More

We have just returned from a long weekend in Edinburgh, having chosen Prestonfield on the basis of its superb Tripadvisor reviews. I have to say that the experience far exceeded our expectations. The hotel is stunning, with Highland cows and peacocks as you come up the drive and King Arthur's Seat in the background. All three of our rooms were... More

My wife and I returned to Prestonfield for an overnight stay in late January. We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and to recall our reception at this same venue, 25 years earlier. We had a fantastic time and I would like to thank all of the staff and management for making this an unforgettable experience. We stayed in... More
