Unashamed Baroque luxuryPosted Nov 16, 2013
Pros: The Baroque opulence of the hotel is quite unique; the food was superb and the staff were, without exception, friendly and helpful.
Location: Very attractive parkland setting in the shadow of Arthur's Seat, 15 minutes drive from the city centre.
We've just returned from a 4-night stay at Prestonfield, which we used as a base for revisiting old haunts, friends and family. We've stayed in lots of Edinburgh hotels over the years and can confidently say that this one tops the lot. From the peacocks on parade outside the front door on arrival to the lavish decor and the excellent food, this is an experience you will love.

A Spot of Luxury for our 45th Wedding Anniversary!Posted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: Excellence at every turn - organised, friendly and polite staff, superb decor and facilities in the room and all other parts, and fantastic food.
Location: Set in parkland, 10 minutes from the city centre, Prestonfield opens the gateway to Scotland in style. Historic attractions will keep you occupied.
My Wife and I were married while I was still completing my Degree at Edinburgh University, as I switched mid-course to these new-fangled computer things, and took the pilot Honours Degree in Computer Science. We spent the first year of our married life very happily, and she worked in nursing at the Western General Hospital, on the brand-new Kidney Transplant Unit - leading-edge technology then. We wanted to look at old haunts - well, apart from our flat in Murrayfield Avenue, Edinburgh has lost its 'Auld Reekie' character, and Princes Street is now just like any other main street (apart from the view!), and we couldn't see the top of Arthurs Seat because of the haar - but the visit was wonderful, and we returned home much refreshed, with considerable appreciation for our time at the Prestonfield Hotel.

A little bit of country in EdinburghPosted Aug 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Prestonfield House was an absolute joy! The grounds are beautiful, replete with peacocks and cattle in the field. The service was the best we have ever had in our many travels. Breakfasts were superb. We ate dinner twice in Rhubarb and could not have been more pleased. The decor is incredibly beautiful including the fresh flowers. Champagne in our room every afternoon was simply fabulous! We cannot say enough good about our stay. If it were possible to award sixes and sevens, we certainly would!

Awesome romantic stylish venuePosted Aug 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
My second visit and even better than the first - we were upgraded to a suite as it was my birthday. The gardens are filled with peacocks , fresh lawns and we had excellent weather to accompany the great service and wonderful food. I've once again recommended it to friends and family.

Fabulous, and half the price of City centre 10 minPosted Jun 27, 2013
Prestonfield is unique, beatiful and one of the finest historical hotels in the UK. It may lack a few things boutique hotesl may now have like gym and spa, but the location, the breathtaking decor, restaurant and history and also its 10 minute taxi journey to the centre of the greatest city in the world make Prestonfield one of th best!!

Treated like royalty in spectacular surroundings. Nothing more to it! Already booking a longer stay later in the year and possibly looking into it for a wedding venue - I think that speaks volumes! Well done to the Prestonfield.
