“Opulent extravagance at the Prestonfield just 5 mins from the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Come for attentive service, divine bedrooms and spoiling galore. Fine dining is served in an ultra romantic setting. The concierge have a 'nothing's too much' attitude. Best for a truly indulgent stay.”

Hotel Review

Surrounded by gardens and parkland but minutes from the city centre, this enveloping hotel has just 23 bedrooms, yet guests are treated to an Aladdin's cave of opulence, drama and romance, from complementary champagne and chocolate on arrival to the run of three fabulously decorated drawing rooms, a whisky bar and a fine restaurant, Rhubarb. Attentive service; gorgeous bedrooms; sheer glorious indulgence. Robb Reports 100 best in the world & VisitScotland Thistle Awards 2015 Scotland’s Best Hotel

  • Local exploring
  • The best of both worlds- set in 20 acres of spectacular parklands, yet within spitting distance of Edinburgh.

Prestonfield House

"Riotously rococo, with bedrooms straight from the pages of bodice-ripping romance, every comfort catered for and one of Edinburgh’s favourite restaurants."
