Overview

Hotel's quintessentially Scottish grounds and close proximity to Arthur's Seat was a standout for past guests
Far from the city center

If you want a taste of Old World Scotland during your visit to Edinburgh, then the Prestonfield House is your Shangri-La. The Prestonfield is housed in a 17th-century baroque-style mansion situated among manicured gardens at the base of Arthur's Seat, creating the illusion that you're vacationing in the countryside instead of one of Scotland's biggest cities. Venture inside the hotel and you'll find that the rooms are a hideaway all their own. Accommodations, which are decorated with antique furniture, velvet bedding and heavy draperies, resemble the kind of interiors found in a palace all while staying up to date with accoutrements like free Wi-Fi access, smart TVs and loaner laptops. Add to that a croquet lawn, an 18-hole golf course, 24-hour porters, complimentary shoeshines and a helicopter landing pad on-site and it's hard not to feel a bit like royalty when staying at this five-star establishment. Aside from the amenities, previous lodgers gushed about the hotel's superb staff, as well as the fare served at the on-site Rhubarb restaurant. Though the property lacks a gym or a pool and is 2 miles southeast of the city center, the Prestonfield received mostly positive reviews from recent guests.
