Our four day stay was simply outstanding. The Ben Franklin Suite has an old yet luxurious feel with all the amenities you could hope for. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is exceptionally helpful and the accommodations terrific.

We recently booked a suite at the Prestonfield hotel for our one-year wedding anniversary. We were given the Franklin Suite which is a decadently furnished room with two bathrooms, two large flat-screen TVs and a sizeable living room looking over the gardens. The general condition of the hotel and grounds is top-notch and the staff are extremely courteous and helpful.... More

We booked this for 11 of us to have a 70th birthday lunch. From the minute we got out the taxis at the front door, we were well looked after. The staff were "child friendly", especially Derek (just what we'd asked for and wanted with a 6, 4 and 3 year old!). The food and drink was delicious and served... More

My room,16, was a corner room, comfortable and air conditioned, but not needed, and overlooked the golf course Great daily treats in the room each day. Daily breakfast was exceptional. Many public...

I treated my partner to an overnight stay with dinner at Prestonfield staying in the Winston Churchill Suite and I have to say it did not disappoint. ... we had a lovely time, the suite itself was spacious and very comfortable - we were a little worried that it would be noisy as the hotel itself was packed for a...

Prestonfield House Hotel is a really amazing place to stay, it was a great adventure to stay there. Was really impressed by the staff there, tall gentleman in a kilt, sounded a bit foreign, (no nametag) he offered to take my bags straight away and welcomed me into the hotel, he was very polite and welcoming. He took the bags... More

We had a very nice afternoon tea in our own private room. Tea was delicious and a large choice available. The food was excellent especially the savory part (not enough!) and the home made scones (with house raspberry jam!) The staff were very polite and helpful...we visited the hotel freely and made the most of the grounds (croquet) and sat... More

I got married here last year so got the pleasure of experiencing the three 'function' rooms that we had booked (Leather room - ceremony, Whisky room - drinks, Stuart Suite - wedding breakfast) and a night in the Owner's Suit. Everyone had a great time and raved about the wedding afterwards. It was perfect for a small wedding as the... More
