About Prestonfield House
Built in 1687 as the grand baroque home of Edinburgh's Lord Provost, Prestonfield is now Edinburgh's most luxurious 5-star hotel with 23 stylishly opulent rooms and suites.
Opulence, theatre and luxury are combined in James Thomson's quirky and stylish reworking of this A-listed historic century mansion where minimalism is banished and maximalism rules! In addition to the dramatic bedrooms and sumptuous suites, there is his destination restaurant - Rhubarb - alongside a collection of stunning private dining rooms, opulent salons and historic public rooms.
Described by Time Out as "Edinburgh's star restaurateur", owner James Thomson's vision was to create a colourful and compelling alternative to today's plethora of bland and unexceptional hotels in Edinburgh and Scotland.
Prestonfield is a very personal creation, 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.
