We had lunch from the bar menu at the Prestonfield hotel in the whiskey bar. It was very pleasant until we got the the cheese board. It was pleasantly laid out with a good range of cheeses. The problem was the amount of garlic in the honey. Why was it there in the first place? It was inedible, we complained...

What a fantastic experience! Prestonfield is a beautiful hotel, with a stunning view of Arthur's Seat. I would recommend dining at the restaurant, the food was beautiful. The concierge and all the staff couldn't do enough to help us. We are already planning our next visit as an anniversary gift to ourselves!

We were married here 23 years ago and have been visiting on a regular basis ever since. The food is impeccable, the staff couldn't be more helpful and the decor is outstanding. My favorite dessert of all time was eaten here - Apple soup!

Having dined at the Prestonfield on numerous occasions previously we thought we would treat ourselves to an overnight stay. From the time we stepped out our car until we left the following morning the service we received was impeccable. Our room exceeded our expectations. It was sumptuously decorated and was beautifully furnished. The furnishings were ornate and of the highest...

What a place. Small, personal, friendly, opulent, quiet, appointed & very, very tasteful. Standards are high at Prestonfield, from the unassuming kilted welcome at the door to the world class cuisine in the restaurant (Rhubarb). This was a Christmas present from my wife. She was concerned in case I didn't like it as I spend a lot of time in...

Four of us stayed here for a special birthday celebration and the whole experience surpassed our expectations, from the historic building, stylish interior, fabulous food, beautiful grounds and fantastic staff. Would fully recommend a stay here and hope to return in the future for special celebrations.
