About Prestonfield

Prestonfield is a very personal creation of James Thomson, described by ‘Time Out’ as "Edinburgh's star restaurateur", It is a fusion of historic architecture with an extensive collection of art and antiques and décor every bit as rich and colourful as the history of the house itself.

Prestonfield has been at the heart of Scotland's artistic, social, business and political life for over four centuries and, as a uniquely luxurious 5 red star hotel, it remains so today.

Prestonfield is situated only five minutes from Edinburgh's finest shopping streets and the historic attractions of the Royal Mile, yet, surrounded by twenty acres of gardens and parkland, it provides the privacy and seclusion of a country estate.



I love my job because...

"It is a thrill to fulfil a challenging request but, best of all, I love to see returning guests treat Prestonfield as their home. It is a real pleasure to see guests who arrived stressed from a flight relax and enjoy the hotel."
