We recently held our Wedding at Prestonfield and from the outset I cannot fault the service we had which was both friendly and professional - the perfect balance. I wanted to particularly mention, events co-ordinator Ayesha who made all our plans run so smoothly and helped to make our special day so stress free. Nothing was ever too much trouble. All staff were charming and gave the impression that they loved to work there. Prestonfield is a fantastic mix of opulent luxury, combined with an old world feel. It was very hard to leave and we are both looking forward so much to returning and spending an overnight stay in one of the beautiful bedrooms in the near future.

Just checked out from this fabulous hotel. The Prestonfield ticks all the boxes for beautifully decorated, charming country hotel within a few minuets drive from the centre of Edinburgh. The service is impeccable with the most friendly and attentive staff. The hotel is charming with beautifully well appointed rooms and wonderful common areas where you can loose yourself in comfortable lounge areas. The grounds are lovely with sheep, cows and peacocks roaming around and the imposing Arthur's Seat as a backdrop.
Our room was on the first floor at the corner of the house, large and sumptuous, with all the amenities expected.
Breakfast is wonderful and generous, with a superb buffet followed by a choice of hot dishes.

The only slight let down was dinner at the Rhubarb restaurant, but I believe his was due to functions being held around the hotel and the fact that they were fully booked. Food was not cooked as ordered and one of our parties meet was questionable as to whether it should have been served. However I would give the restaurant a second chance on a future visit. Most of our food was very good.

We took advantage of a special offer emailed to us as former guests and we were delighted to return as it marked a special occasion for my wife. When you arrive the 5 star service starts from the moment the door is opened for you by the porter and your bags carried before being led through the hallway, passing the magnificent Rhubarb restaurant on your way to reception. We didn’t need the tour as we had stayed before. We were greeted by the delightful Emma at reception who instructed the porter to take our bags to the ‘Churchill’ Emma then explained we had a free upgrade to the ‘Winston Churchill Suite’ to mark the occasion!. A really nice and much appreciated gesture. The suite is magnificent, both the bedroom and livingroom have velvet maroon coloured walls adorned with numerous military artefacts from photos, cap badges, medals etc as well as memorabilia relating to Winston Churchill. The livingroom has a large comfortable day bed facing the unit which houses the large TV and mini bar. The bedroom features a large extremely comfortable bed facing the same ornate wooden unit containing the large TV. Both rooms have their own ensuite bathrooms.

We ate in the Rhubarb restaurant at night and the food was simply lovely, well presented and served efficiently. All staff members were very polite and unobtrusive. It was too cold to go and sit on the balcony on this visit but we enjoyed a drink in luxurious surroundings before retiring again to our lovely suite.

Breakfast was again very nice and plentiful.

We enjoyed our stay and thanks again Emma, a very professional girl and an asset to Prestonfield, for our upgrade.

Wonderful helpful charming staff - every single person I passed in the corridor, reception staff, waiters, housekeeping, everyone was smiley, chatty but not in an overpowering way. Room sumptious, fabulous furnishings, nice touches with chocolates, fruit & home-made biscuits in the room. Breakfast an absolute joy. Couldn't recommend highly enough

went to prestonfield sometime in mid june this year. it was one of our honeymoon destinations / stopovers :) and by far this has been one of the best hotels i've stayed in. loved and cherished ever single moment there. and yes also celebrated my hubby's birthday there at the "rhubarb restaurant" with food to die for :) :) the room was spacious, clean and well decorated... in fact the decor and the interiors of the entire hotel was out-of-this world. and the home-made cookies given in the rooms were "the best" i have ever had... baked to perfection. we are definitely coming back...:)
