This luxurious hotel was certainly the perfect venue for our daughter’s wedding reception. Everything from the opulent accommodation, beautiful gardens, the excellent food (special dietary requirements were well catered for) and the professional attitude of the staff ensured that the wedding was a glorious occasion.

We stayed in one of their luxury suites which are amazing, with all the frills you would expect from a 5 Star hotel i.e. complimentary champagne, chocolates, freshly baked cookies, fudge etc.

Breakfast was in the Rhubarb Restaurant. There was plenty of choice and generous portions, all freshly cooked on request.

Sarah, the Events Managers meticulous attention to detail and calm reassuring manner ensured that this was indeed a magical occasion.

This is the most wonderful place to hold a wedding or a special occasion.

The only complaint we had was that being the parents of the bride we didn’t get the time to have a lazy morning and enjoy the suite a bit more. I guess this just means we will have to return!

This place blew me away with its rich fabrics, decor, luxuriousness. It is stunning. I wish I had dressed up more, get out your glad rags ladies and feel like a princess here. The staff are very attentive, the food is fantastic and the wine choice is breath taking. I will never forget this place and the fine dining experience with a late night cap in the drawing room.

This opulent, luxurious hotel certainly has the elusive "wow" factor with tactile wallpaper, plentiful tea lights, and attentive staff that go the extra mile. Minor slips were more than adequately compensated for and the food in the restaurant, "Rhubarb", was delicious. It's fabulous place to stay and dine in the same location. I suspect this is the best venue for a peaceful, yet convenient stay in Edinburgh. I would have liked it even more if it had a swimming pool or spa so that we could have checked in earlier for a longer stay, but we still had a wonderful time.
It was certainly a very special treat.

This is a most wonderful place to stay. The setting is fabulous, the rooms are amazing, the food excellent and the staff are the best I've met anywhere - courteous, attentive, friendly and extremely helpful. The room rates are not cheap but are worth every penny.

Following a corporate event in the Stables I recently had the privilege of staying over in the Winston Churchill Suite at Prestonfield House. The suite was out of this world with complimentary champagne, freshly baked cookies, fudge and comfy personalised slippers- ideal after a night of dancing!

The staff both in the hotel and the Events Team could not have been friendlier and happy to help with anything, however trivial.

Breakfast in Rhubarb was lovely with plenty of choice and more than ample portions, all freshly cooked on request. Being gluten intolerant was no problem either and I was promptly served hot freshly baked toast to compliment my cooked breakfast.

All in all a wonderful experience which I would thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Although slightly more expensive, the Suites are out of this world.
