Prestonfield HouseOccupying a historic home from 1687, the five-star Prestonfield House is one of Edinburgh’s most luxurious hotels. Surrounded by 20 acres of gardens, it offers the seclusion of a country estate in the heart of the city, right next to Arthur’s Seat and just five minutes from downtown. The 18 rooms and five suites are individually decorated in opulent style, with rich colors (burgundy, gold) and plush details (velvet, damask wallpaper), plus beds dressed in fine linens.
Also on-site are several charming hideaways—from a tapestry-filled drawing room and leather-paneled sitting room to a well-stocked whisky bar and a cozy salon with crocodile sofas and a fireplace—as well as outdoor terraces, a Gothic teahouse, a croquet lawn, a putting green, and an 18-hole golf course. At its destination restaurant, Rhubarb, guests enjoy gourmet Scottish cuisine and award-winning wines in an elegant, candlelit dining room.
