We have stayed here once before and had no hesitation in re-booking for our more recent stay without looking at other hotels. We were not disappointed. When we arrived, the Manager on duty was Christopher, the same manager when we last stayed. As usual he was a cheerful welcome who took us through the room (Note the Hotel upgraded us... More

A very comfortable and clean apartment block with a warm welcome on a winters night. Stayed over with my daughter who also enjoyed the space and hospitality. A special thanks to Charlie who confirmed our arrangements and organised ongoing transport..

We really enjoyed this apartment. It was clean and stocked with bread, cereal, coffee, tea, jam, cookies, and juice. They were very helpful with our baby and stroller. They even gave her a little toy. They were helpful when we needed directions, taxi, extra blankets, etc. I would highly recommend them as a place to stay.

Great spot to stay for a few nights in Edinburgh and a good & cheaper alternative to hotels when staying with children. Our family of five was comfortable in the apartment & enjoyed having a breakfast basket supplied. The property is just a short walk to main shopping streets and Castle. Special thanks to Chris who was working when we... More

Fantastic place to stay in Edinburgh. Location is not the best point though, the service and attention of Colin and his team is amazing. The rooms are also excellent and as we travelled with a family we had a 1 bed and a 2 so can advise both are very good. A nice bonus was a whiskey and shortbread left... More

Second time of staying at The Knights Residence and once again it did not disappoint. It has had a face lift since our last visit and the apartment was clean and well furnished. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. We have already booked the apartment for 2 further visits in the next 12 months.
