My friend treated me to champagne afternoon tea for my birthday. The food was nice with a good choice of sandwiches and cakes etc but the service was not of the high standard we expected. We were handed a menu and asked to choose what tea/coffee type we wanted but nobody ever came back to ask. When our afternoon tea... More

Let's start with WOW. on arrival we were met by the friendliest staff who were so warm and welcoming. Led to the yellow room for pre drinks which was gorgeous. The ambience of the restaraurant Rhubarb was second to none. Every aspect was covered with fantastic service accompanied by outstanding food. The sommelier assisted in providing the best paired red... More

Excellent and luxurious in all respects particularly the staff who are cheerful and extremely helpful. Tiny niggle might be to get some homemade granary bread for breakfast instead of the sliced bread we were served Looking forward to returning !

Everything about this hotel spells OPULENCE! Set in beautiful grounds in the shadow of Arthurs Seat, this hotel oozes in grandeur. Not for the minimalist. Even the toilets have the wow factor. Had Sunday lunch in Rhubard and it really was fanatastic(espcially the ice cream/sorbet plate for dessert!). Having studied at Edinburgh University, Edinburgh has always held a special place...

Stayed in the Ramsey suite for one night for our anniversary. A lot of money but worth it. Only thing that could have been improved was the rather scratchy woolen blankets on the bed, not seen for a while and would much preferred a duvet. Service impeccable, atmosphere perfect, food stunning, views over King Arthurs Seat

Fabulous! The rooms have the wow factor. Decor only a hotel of this standard could get away with! Service was fantastic and every need met by staff who clearly enjoy all the grandeur this setting offers. Need to visit again and really take in all this has to offer!

I've been wanting to visit Prestonfield house for years. It's nestled in the shadow of Arthur's seat, a stones throw from the city centre, although you would meet guess that. Slightly disconcerting entrance via an unassuming housing estate. We booked for tea/coffee on New Year's Day, and it was heaving and so busy. We had to wait for a while,... More

We four Australian friends stayed at Prestonfield for two wonderful nights. The service was exceptional throughout our stay. We arrived around midday, and were ushered into an amazing sitting room, where we enjoyed a light lunch while waiting for our room. And our room - magnificent! The decor is almost over the top, but such fun, and the bed was... More

Absolutely amazing, outstanding service in a wonderful location. Ticks all the boxes. Will return definitely, food was fantastic and rooms opulent and welcoming. We absolutely loved it, going back early 2015 for wedding anniversary and would recommend it to anyone looking for someone very special!
