My partner and I both thoroughly enjoyed our recent Civil Partnership ceremony, celebration and three day stay at Prestonfield. James, our Master of Ceremony's, managed the whole day impeccably. We cannot thank him enough. Indeed, all the staff made us very welcome and we felt truly special during our stay. Sarah, events manager, was wonderful too in organising the day,... More

Got a late deal in the autumn. The room (5) was large and dual aspect over the grounds and Salisbury Crags. The bed was huge, the bathroom impressive and service excellent. Every member of staff was friendly. The afternoon tea in front of a roaring fire was an unforgettable experience and the whole ambiance on an evening walking down the... More

Beautiful quiet setting just 10 to 15 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh but once you are here you will not want to leave! Attentive, very smart staff, fabulous furnishings and extremely comfortable bedrooms. What more could a body ask for? Staying here is like visiting a Scottish Laird's home!!

Had lunch, dinner, attended an event and had coffee in the space of a few weeks - everything was perfect every time. The food is consistently excellent, the service is exceptional and the place is very comfortable, like being at home - but on a very grand scale! I keep going back because I have never been disappointed. Great for... More

I was treating my husband to a birthday afternoon tea. I have been with friends many times and never been disappointed. Today I was rather surprised that we were being served in the restaurant rather then upstairs. I was not told this, when I booked a week in advance, that we would be seated in the restaurant . I noticed... More

This is exactly what you expect when you think "5 Star Hotel" From the sincerely friendly staff to the fantastic food and grounds, nothing is overlooked. It's in a perfect location to relax away from the crowds, with spectacular views of Arthur's seat, but not too far from town. We stayed 4 nights in the Benjamin Franklin suite which is... More

My husband and two girls (ages 6 and 9) spent two weeks traveling around Scotland this August and decided to end our trip at Prestonfield. It turned out to be our favorite hotel ... for the service, peacocks, one table tea room, convenient Scottish show next door, food, décor, crochet, champagne ... I could go on and on. Such a...
