Ben Franklin Suite

This large and opulent suite takes its name from Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States who visited Prestonfield in the eighteenth century

Twenty-first century guests now find every indulgence in this sumptuous suite, from a huge silver-leaf sleigh bed, to a decadently furnished sitting room. One of Prestonfield’s largest and most luxurious five-star suites, the Franklin has views of the gardens and parkland from both the large double bedroom and spacious separate sitting room.

Neatness and Sweetness all around
These at Prestonfield we found

Benjamin Franklin


The bedroom is chic and elegant, decorated in black and pewter brocades, with a huge silver leaf sleigh bed, a seating area with antique chaise-longue and a media cabinet with 36” plasma TV & DVD.

Walls of dramatic trompe-l’oeil drapery, bold classical furniture and dramatic black lacquer all ensure that the separate sittingroom is a memorable location to relax, work or entertain.

Both rooms are fully air-conditioned, have wi-fi and feature media cabinets with large plasma TVs, DVDs and Bose sound systems. The Franklin Suite features two bathrooms; an en-suite and a second guest bathroom lined in marble and black and gold Venetian glass mosaic.
