This is my second visit to Prestonfield and I didn't think it could ever get any better but it did. We were due to arrive early Thursday morning but unfortunately due to terrible weather conditions in the north our plane abandoned landing at Edinburgh to took us all the way back to London. After a 12 hour wait in Heathrow we finally made it back to Scotland. We arrived at the hotel at 1am and were met by Liam who checked us in took our bags to our room and then stoked the fire in one of the beautiful lounges and poured us a well needed drink.
Prestonfield at Christmas is truly beautiful with Christmas trees in every room and log fires burning. The staff are second to none and if you want or need anything they will go out of their way to make sure you get it. I feel utterly relaxed and extremely spoilt. I want to say a huge thank you to Liam, you really did go above and beyond to make sure we had the best stay in the hotel and Edinburgh itself, Recommending things to do, helping us choose wines and whiskies. He also has a great sense of humour and made us feel right at home. Thanks to Liam we managed to get a table at Rhubarb after being disappointed that we missed our reservation on Thursday. It was fantastic and I would recommend eating here even if you are not staying here. We also ate at the Witchery and I have to say we much preferred Rhubarb. So if you are lucky enough to stay here enjoy and go knowing that you will be made to feel very very welcome.
