Swanky hotel 'in world's top 101'.

A GLAMOUR bible has named a Scottish hotel as one of the world's top destinations.

Beyonce Knowles, Vin Diesel and Minnie Driver have all stayed at luxurious Prestonfield House.

Style magazine Tatler included the five-star hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh in their top 101.

Owner James Thomson said: 'This guide was on the lookout for hotels with a 'wow' factor that offer something a bit extra, so it is wonderful to be included.

'We are delighted as it helps attract the higher end spender and international jet-setter.

'It is a good boost for Edinburgh to feature in such lists as these.

'Edinburgh is the most beautiful and romantic city in Europe, so we are delighted that even more visitors will discover Scotland's charms.'

Every guest at the pounds 195-a night hotel receives a complimentary bottle of Pol Roger Champagne.

All rooms have 30in plasna screen TVs, DVD players and top-of-the-range stereos.

The hotel is decorated in red velvet. Built in 1687, it opened as a hotel in the 1950s and was revamped last year.

Edinburgh and Lothians Tourist Board chief executive Jack Munro said: 'It is beyond dispute that Prestonfield has become one of the most elegant and stylish hotels in the UK.'

The guide described the hotel as: 'Rich and ripe, dangerously close to decadent. Overblown should never be under-rated.'

This year, Prestonfield has won the AA's Scottish hotel of the year and been voted Scotland's most romantic hotel.

It recently hit the headlines after an alleged fire-raising incident following a political awards bash.
