Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“If the blond wood and brushed steel of modern boutique hotels leave you cold, then this is the place for you. A 17th-century mansion set in 8 hectares of parkland, Prestonfield is draped in damask and packed with antiques.”

Fodors review:

“The cattle grazing on the hotel’s 20-acre grounds let you know that you’ve entered a different world, even though you’re ten minutes by car from the Royal Mile. Inside this 1687 mansion, baroque opulence reigns in the well-restored public rooms; there are plenty of gilt treasures to relax among as you sip a whisky.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Edinburgh.

Frommers review:

“James Thomson’s leanings towards the theatrical were given free reign in his second hotel and mini country estate on the outskirts of the city. He rescued this 17th-century baroque pad in 2003 and turned it into a lavishly opulent five–star boutique hotel with 18 rooms and five suites in his signature overblown style.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Edinburgh.

Telegraph review:

“Hidden in lush grounds a short drive from the city centre this is the swankiest, most swoon-some country house hotel imaginable. Riotously rococo, with bedrooms straight from the pages of bodice-ripping romance, every comfort catered for and one of Edinburgh’s favourite restaurants.”
