We had a delightful stay at the Knight Residence. The staff is really friendly and helpful, the apartment has everything you need (the kitchen appliances are particularly nice), we even had a christmas tree in our living room. In a nutshell: you feel immediately at home!

It was our first experience of an apartment hotel and it was wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful, our one bedroom apartment was quiet, warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean throughout. We will definitely be back. One tip; the car park can be tricky to find, so unless you have an Edinburgh cabbies knowledge, use a satnav.

We were warmly welcomed by the manager on arrival, who escorted us personally to our apartment. The one-bedroom city apartment had absolutely everything we needed to feel immediately at home. It was cosy and comfortable and the welcome pack was extremely helpful. After several hours outdoors in very cold and wet weather, it was a real pleasure to return to... More

Stayed for two nights in a two bed apartment. We are fussy, always expect everything to be perfect and are quick to post 'constructive criticism' when it's not. In this case I have nothing to say other than 'well done'. Fantastic place to stay - the reception staff are an absolute credit to the place. Great apartment in a great... More

I'm just recently back from a girls weekend stay in Edinburgh and we all absolutely loved this place. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, took our bags to our room for us after we had dropped them off early that morning and came back in the afternoon to check-in and always going out of their way to be of...

Stayed again for a couple of nights. Excellent staff and accommodation - central location and car parking. Close to perfect. Won't look anywhere else next time I need to stay in Edinburgh. It's possible to walk to almost anywhere in the city from here.

3 of us had a fantastic time in the Knight Residence - lovely, friendly greeting started us off and the whole experience carried on in the same vein. We will certainly return - I would have liked to move in permanently but as I actually live much further north this was not a possibility! We would recommend the apartments to... More

We stayed here in June & made a fleeting 2night visit in December. We had the same apartment & were just as impressed this time. Excellent facilities & well equipped apartment - the only minus is that the pillows are uncomfortable. Easy walking distance of everywhere in the city. Left our iPad behind & staff rang us ASAP & sent... More
