Chosen because of its reputation for quality service and good food, the Prestonfield did not disappoint. Only 15 mins from the centre of Edinburgh, next to a golf course and with its own heli-pad the Prestonfield is perfectly located.
Prestonfield is a very fine hotel, with great food and lavish decor. The whole ambience says quality and efficiency. Its reputation is one of ‘the best’. So we where a little perturbs that the valet parking was not present - a minor point. The next thing that did concern us was to be told the dining room was full and we would be offered a table ‘our sister restaurant’ The Tower, in the middle of Edinburgh. We explained that this was not acceptable. Afternoon tea was served with a proviso we moved to another room within twenty minutes. So far the signs where not good and we where considering ‘cutting our losses’ and leaving. However very soon afterwards we where informed a table was available.
Drinks before dinner was the turning point. Everything from that point on was perfect, superb service, delightful and helpful staff and good food. The rooms are lavishly decorated, with all the mod cons, discreetly hidden from view. Everything worked and for those familiar with the ’chain hotels’ no signs telling you what you can not do and the charges for everything. Service is discreet and efficient. The atmosphere is relax and pleasant creating a feel that one is a guest in a country house.
In conclusion this is a place to stay, highly recommended.
