So I’m upping my blog game and have decided that since we stay in so many quirky and awesome hotels (and AirBnB’s) while traveling around the world, it’s time to start dedicating some reviews to them. So here’s my first hotel review of the Prestonfield House in Edinburgh, Scotland where my fiancé and I stayed for a one-night treat last Christmas. This is one of the nicest hotels we’ve ever stayed in, and has also been voted the most glamorous hotel in Scotland, so I’m a bit embarrassed to say we didn’t get many pictures of our visit as we were too busy enjoying everything that we forgot to document the details 😉

- Prestonfield House
Upon arrival at the Prestonfield House you will know right away you’re not staying at any ordinary hotel. As soon as you enter the grand hotel lobby (which looks like the entrance to a small castle) you are greeted by a team of friendly concierge,and it’s no wonder this has been named as one of the world’s best hotels.
After a personal check in where you are invited to sit down and relax in a private lounge, you are brought to the hotel room of your dreams, decked out in maroon and burgundy shades and gold trimmings throughout the suite. Complete with a Nespresso machine, homemade cookies and treats next to the bed, Sky television (and DVDs too) and a turn down service to prepare you for undoubtedly sweet dreams. Oh and there’s a tea menu too!
Breakfast is complimentary and can be served to the room, which we took advantage of. The kedgeree is stunning, and the Scottish breakfast is a feast for any hungry soul. The Rhubarb restaurant on site is worth a visit, and is just as impressive as the hotel itself (restaurant review coming up). Definitely one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in.
