Built in 1687 as the grand baroque home of Edinburgh's Lord Provost, Prestonfield is now one of Edinburgh's most luxurious five-star hotels with 23 stylish 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, salons and historic public rooms.
Prestonfield, rising in Jacobean splendor amid 5.3 hectares (13 acres) of gardens, pastures, and woodlands below Arthur's Seat, has entertained such luminaries as Sean Connery and Minnie Driver. All guests should appreciate the traditional atmosphere and 1680s architecture as well as the peacocks and Highland cattle that strut and stroll across the grounds. The spacious bedrooms hide all modern conveniences behind velvet-lined walls: Bose sound systems, DVD players, and flatscreen plasma TVs.
