Myself and my fiancee had a simply fantastic overnight stay at Prestonfield just before Christmas. From the moment that you arrive to a rather sad departure the service is impeccable; always friendly, very slick and not intrusive. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. It was lovely to stay somewhere that hadn't done away with some OTT glamour and indulgence, much unlike the stark modernity that adorns many 'luxury' UK hotels nowadays. We were also offered Prestonfield's 'Salon Privee' to eat dinner in the evening, as the lady I spoke to when booking was aware that I was proposing to my girlfriend that day. I have to say that if you are a couple staying and dining at Prestonfield, if it is available then it should be reserved. It is a small private room located off a stone staircase, with a view from the large window down towards the lit up old stables; very romantic and welcome privacy. The fact that we could order anything from the a la carte menu included within our DB+B rate was great and the food was really fantastic. I would recommend a stay at Prestonfield to anyone; it isn't cheap but neither is it overly expensive and thus it is probably one of the best value hotels I have experienced.
