Our room was splendid, the decor was like a royal chamber back in the Jacobean times. It was like being in a set of the hit series "Outlander" and being the rich royal folk. From tapestries hanging on the walls,sumptious curtains and bedspread and cushions. Silver platters with little fine chocolates, to a bottle of fresh Prestonfield champagne. Red velvet...

I have always loved the ambiance and old fashioned opulence of this hotel and have attended a few functions over the years and had dinner on many occasions. This is the second time that we have chosen this venue for a special birthday celebration and both times we have been given the Italian Room for dinner and the Whiskey Room...

Our third visit to this unique five star hotel, still divine.... decor a feast for the eyes, sumptuous rooms with equally sumptuous furniture and bedding, not huge by any means but SO comfortable. All the staff are professional, friendly and very accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. The gardens are beautiful (complete with peacocks!) and the upstairs terrace from one...

Stayed a night with my wife as a birthday treat and was so impressed. It's amongst the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The service from the staff is superb with just the right balance of a personal touch without going OTT. A number of the staff members wished me a happy birthday and there was a card in the...

With Arthur's seat as it's back drop and beautiful grounds, it was a great start to our one night stay. We were greeted by staff dressed in Scottish attire, giving us a really warm welcome. We were with two other couples, so got a peak into the bedrooms they stayed in, all were absolutely beautiful. Dinner in the restaurant was...

We've enjoyed a brief stay at Prestonfields before, so we returned for our 10 years together as a couple anniversary. Everything about the hotel ambience, its facilities and its friendly, courteous staff was a delight, as before. We recommend this top quality hotel to all who expect the best.

This was our second stay at this hotel, having visited it on several occasions for Afternoon Tea. The welcome is both warm and efficient and better than any other five star hotels we have visited. The style is gothic meets baroque with divine flower arrangements and wonderful Aud Nobile scent throughout. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere with lovely food....

My husband and I stayed for one night as a birthday treat. We were amazed by the location of the hotel - one minute we were driving down a residential street in Edinburgh and the next minute we were facing an avenue of trees leading to a beautiful baronial mansion house. Throughout our stay we were very impressed with the...
