Lonely Planet review
If the blonde 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 (complete with peacocks and Highland cattle), Prestonfield House is draped in damask and packed with antiques – look out for original tapestries, 17th-century embossed-leather panels, and £500-a-roll hand-painted wallpaper.
The sumptuous bedrooms are supplied with all mod cons, including Bose sound systems, DVD players and plasma-screen TVs. The hotel is southeast of the city centre, east of Dalkeith Rd.
Our independent authors have visited Prestonfield House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Edinburgh.
