Prestonfield House Offers Glitz and Glamour in Edinburgh

What Do I Need to Know About Prestonfield House?

Once the home of Edinburgh's Lord Provost, Prestonfield House offers a five-star hotel experience that includes stylish interiors and attentive staff members. The hotel has an on-site restaurant called Rhubarb, so you can easily enjoy Prestonfield House Hotel afternoon tea, or book a table for dinner. Many travel publications and newspapers have recognized the property for its impressive opulence. Not surprisingly, this accommodation is perpetually popular with elite visitors ranging from famous musicians to world-renowned religious figures.

What's the Area Like?

Located just five minutes from Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile, Prestonfield House puts you within easy reach of enticing specialty shops, historical sites, and welcoming pubs. However, if you're in the mood for privacy and rejuvenation, relaxation isn't hard to find. That's because Prestonfield House is on twenty secluded acres that feature lush landscapes and charming gardens to explore. Alternatively, venture just off the Royal Mile and explore the boutique merchants that line Blackfriar's Street. 

What Rates Should I Expect?

With rates starting around $325 per night, Prestonfield House has higher rates than other five-star hotels along the Royal Mile, such as the G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh and Old Town Chambers. If you're in the mood for a real treat, splurge for the Lord Provost Suite, with rates around $100 higher than for a luxury room at Prestonfield House. It includes two plasma screen TVs, a sitting room, guest bathroom, and Wi-Fi. 

What's the Bottom Line?

All rooms at Prestonfield House include a full Scottish breakfast, complimentary parking, and a bottle of chilled champagne upon arrival. These perks make you feel like royalty in a historic building built in 1687. No matter which of the 23 rooms or suites you get, expect an extravagant and memorable experience.
