Reviewed 8 January 2018

We got Married at Prestonfiled on Hogmanay, the hotel gave us the complete package of accommodation, food and private rooms for the event.
The service is outstanding, the staff treat you like a friend and can't do enough to make your time at the hotel magical.
The hotel it self is fabulously opulent, it is dripping in class and stunning design detail. the rooms are very comfortable and spotless.
Sitting just off the main tourist trap, you really can lose yourself in complete relaxation... or jump a taxi, or walk the mile and a half, to the royal mile to immerse yourself in the Edinburgh atmosphere.
Our Wedding was flawless, the events team really did make it a stress free day, these folks know what they are doing and do it so well.

Glasgow once had the slogan "Scotland, with style" Prestonfield really is Scotland, with style.

We previously stayed at Prestonfield on a couple of occasions and decided we would love to celebrate our wedding there on the 30th December 2017. From start to finish we could not fault the service we received from the staff, from our initial meeting with the Events Team to our post wedding breakfast. The whole place was beautifully decorated, in particular the Italian Room where our ceremony was held, and also the Tapestry Room which was just stunning. The food and ambience at Rhubarb was excellent, and provided sufficient privacy from the other hotel guests. Our day ran very smoothly , the staff were excellent , and we would not hesitate in planning a future visit.

Restaurant is just perfect. Must see place. Must try cousin. Hidden from mass tourists paths. Great friendly service. Will come again and again and again. Great for friends meeting and romantic dates (you can rent a room for about 240 euro per night )

Fourth time staying and still splendid.
A unique place, which just works.
Dinner was up to usual standard, with the Cauliflower soup in the "Historic" category of the late Michael Winner's reviews.
If you have not been, then get there

This is truly a lovely hotel. The decor is superb and the quality of the bedrooms and service is five star. If you are looking for a romantic hotel in a quiet setting but close enough to the centre of Edinburgh ( around 20 minute stroll ) then you will struggle to find better than The Prestonfield. We were fortunate enough to experience breakfast, afternoon tea and Dinner and the quality of food and service was excellent. We will definitely return.

We stayed at the Prestonfield on Christmas Eve, and I truly cannot rave about this hotel enough. The luxurious setting, the attention to detail in the fittings, the food and the little touches were all incredible. The staff are attentive and quick to respond to any requests without being overbearing or over the top.

One of, if not the, best hotels I’ve ever stayed in.

We visited in August 2016 from Calgary, Canada. The Edinburgh Festival and Tattoo was going on. We didn't know this ahead of time and it was a nice bonus. I imagine it bumped up our price a bit but was worth it.
Awesome staff, the best we have experienced in our travels. Fantastic food. Most eclectic place we have stayed and it was simply amazing. The grounds are immaculate. A short taxi ride gets you to downtown Edinburgh.
We have stayed in some luxurious places throughout the world and the Prestonfield ranks among the best.
