I thoroughly recommend this hotel for a romantic treat. It felt as though we were staying at the country house of a wealthy relative! The hotel is lavishly decorated, particularly wonderful at Christmas with log fires and well decorated Christmas trees in the public rooms.
Our room was fantastic, richly decorated and very comfortable, with nice touches such as petit fours every evening. Our room was in the more modern extension at the back, but decorated in a traditional style, and had the usual amenities such as air-con and a gigantic flatscreen TV. The hotel has a DVD library and we enjoyed watching a movie on the huge soft bed.
Outside are nice gardens and a golf course, peacocks and highland cows. The hotel is close to Arthur's Seat, and after a cold climb to the top we warmed up by one of their log fires. It took around 20-minutes to walk into town, or a £6-7 taxi ride. We spent less time in town than we expected, as it was so lovely to spend time at Prestonfield.
Breakfast is excellent- around eight hot options and a good buffet selection, served in an ornate dining room. They provide room service 24/7.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and attentive- we were always warmly greeted when we arrived back at the hotel and staff were always offering to help us.
