Built as the grand baroque home for Edinburgh's Lord Provost in 1687, Prestonfield is the city's most individual hotel, as you would expect from its owner - James Thomson the creator of the famed Witchery by the Castle.
Since its lavish restoration by renowned restaurateur/hotelier, James Thomson Prestonfield has been named as Hotel of the Year, Scotland's Most Romantic Hotel and as one of the top 101 Hotels in the World by Tatler/Abercrombie & Kent. Prestonfield is currently Scotland's highest-rated hotel with 5 red stars from the AA & 5 gold stars from VisitScotland. It is the only Scottish hotel to feature in the top 25 hotels in Europe in the 2012 TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Awards
Totally sumptuous and indulgent in every way, Prestonfield has just 22 individually-decorated rooms and suites as well as romantic gardens, stunning public rooms, bars, salons, terraces, private diningrooms and Rhubarb, its destination restaurant.
Each of Prestonfield's rooms and suites is individually furnished with antiques and exceptional decor, all in Prestonfield's trademark opulent and indulgent style and every room features views over the landscaped gardens, parkland or the adjacent golf course.
