The hotel is exceptional in every aspect. Opulence, theatre, and luxury combine in this historic building, which dates from the 17th century, and has been run as a discreet and luxurious hotel since the 1950s.

Prestonfield has been at the heart of Scotland’s artistic, social, business, and political life for over four centuries, and the present-day owner, James Thomson – who also owns The Witchery – has assured its place as the capital’s most exclusive luxury hotel, offering the privacy and seclusion of a country estate right in the heart of Edinburgh.

The hotel is situated within 20 acres of gardens and located next to the stunning Arthur’s Seat, offering the perfect location for those looking to explore Edinburgh. As guests wander the picturesque grounds, they will be invited to greet the friendly peacocks gracefully roaming the estate.

Inside, no room is alike – each of the 18 luxurious bedrooms and five romantic suites are decorated with unique antique furniture and characterful feature beds. Guests are invited to relax and recharge like royalty within these decadent walls.

Prestonfield is also home to a destination restaurant – Rhubarb – the most luxurious of James Thomson’s restaurants to date, which takes its name from the fact that Prestonfield was the first estate in Scotland to propagate rhubarb in the 18th century (it is still grown on the estate and used in the kitchens today).

Wickedly rich and dramatic, glamorous Rhubarb occupies grand Regency rooms, while the menus feature some of the freshest seasonal Scottish produce, locally sourced from small artisan suppliers. To complement the exceptional cuisine, Rhubarb boasts an extensive wine selection, widely regarded as the best in Scotland.

Every detail of guests’ stay has been meticulously attended to and flawlessly executed, ensuring an unforgettable stay at one of Scotland’s most unique hotels.
