Deliberated over where to spend my wedding night in Edinburgh and plumped for The Prestonfield as we had been for a birthday dinner and were treated exceptionally well. We booked a room with DB & B for £195 as this was a special occasion.We arrived at the hotel just after being married and although congratulated we were not made to feel at all special no-one offered us champagne or any sort of real welcome although the very young male receptionist made comment about my choice of wedding dress which I found was quite rude and pointless. We were shown to our room and we decided to enjoy a couple of drinks in the leather room which was pleasant in front of the roaring fire. The meal at Rhubarb was very nice we then had drinks in the Tapestry Room. Breakfast was very good but as we were flying out early we were The only guests in the dining room in the morning.We did enjoy our stay but we felt the staff missed out on huge selling opportunity we were there to celebrate our wedding day but were treated like any other guests.The staff are predominantly young males who although very keen are very inexperienced in social situations and etiquette some training is definitely required. I wish I had chosen Chester Residence over The Prestonfield but I will know better when celebrating our anniversary.
