Review of Prestonfield
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Sept 2016
My wife and I recently spent a short 3 nights at the Prestonfield. What an amazing place, and what an amazing stay we had. From the time I stepped out of the taxi when I arrived, to the time I stepped into a taxi to depart, all staff members were friendly,and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay pleasent. The hotel was beautifully decorated, and the rooms luxuriious and comfortable. The hotel itself is located just outside of the city centre, about a 10 minute taxi ride away, which we apprecicated not being around the hustle and bustle of the city center, and at night we relaxed, and took in the ambiance. Would definatley stay there again.

W didn't stay here, but attended a wonderful dinner and Scottish show. It was held in what would have been the old stables. We sampled haggis for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. The soup and dessert were okay, and the beef dish was very good.
They had 4 bottles of wine for our table of 8 people, which we enjoyed.

Amazing hotel. Very tradingtional but maintained to an excellent standard. Service and staff are a throwback to the time when visiting a luxury hotel was all about hospitality and not simply providing the latest "gadget".
Plenty of interesting things to look at inside the property with bedrooms modern in terms of facilities but with a feel of stepping back in time.
The gardens are beautful, while sitting on the roof terrace with a drink in hand takes the stress levels down 95%!
With views looking up to the Hollyrood Mount and a few minutes into central Edinburgh it really is a har one to find any fault.
If I had to make one mention then it is to keep in mind that it is more or less 2 miles to the Royal Mile and so you need a short taxi ride if you don;t want to drive into town. Otherwise, you can walk along a residential street and hop on a 10 minute bus ride straight into the centre.
As the the hotel - fabulous!

I had tried to book into the Witchery for a weekend away but disappointed to find that we had to book 2 nights at a weekend - however, they pointed us in the direction of their sister hotel, Prestonfield House.

Delighted with the decadent, over the top decor and sumptuous surroundings. Bedroom was beautiful - not big but fabulously decorated, jam packed with indulgent textures, decor and treats.

Staff were fab - we had a tour of the various drawing rooms - which sounds stuffy but weren't.

Food was fab, service excellent and discreet - lovely wee touch with a 'happy anniversary' slate and chocs at end of meal and then shown to one of the super comfy drawings for drinks.

Gardens glorious, you'd never know you were in the middle of Edinburgh!

Wholeheartedly recommend this for a chill out treat - we will definitely return!

Room tip: We enjoyed views of the gardens from the first floor

My sister got engaged and we decided to celebrate with a high tea at the Prestonfield.

It was a horrible and wet afternoon and we booked at the last minute. We were seated in a gorgeous room with a log fire in a really private corner.
It was cosy and although we were only 3 young girls we were treated with great respect and treated with care.

We had tea, coffee and cakes over a few hours while we enjoyed the special afternoon.

It really did feel special and not at all pretentious (as I had previously worried).

Pick a sunny day, secure a reservation and there is no better place in Edinburgh to spend a couple of hours.

Eat your own body weight in sandwiches, cakes and scones and wash it down with a selection of teas and Champagne if you're feeling flush.

Quite rightly, people come here not just for the Afternoon Tea, but for the setting. A stunning building which dates back to 1687, superbly manicured lawns and even a couple of friendly Peacocks.

Prestonfield oozes class.
