About Us

Step into the magical 5-star world of Prestonfield. Built by Kings architect Sir William Bruce in 1687 on his completion of the Palace of Holyroodhouse for Sir James Dick, Provost of Edinburgh as his private residence. Prestonfield remained his family's private home until 1958 when it became a hotel. In 2003 it was purchased by Edinburgh restaurateur James Thomson who has spent two decades restoring it to its former glory adding his unique magic, drama and romance that you would expect from the creator of the Witchery by the Castle to become one of Scotland's most sumptuous hotels.
