Needed a place in town, that could take a car. Knights had that and a very fine apertment to boot. A bit hard to find, but that Edinburgh's one way street system, rather than Knights issue. Well appointed apartment with a Sainsbury's local next door. Great Concierge (Chris) and a place I will use again. Style of the furnishings is... More

The apartments are within 5 minutes walk of Grassmarket. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The apartment was fantastic and the thoughtful goody basket was a great idea and perfect when you just want a cuppa on arrival. Free wifi, comfortable beds and a quiet location. We couldn't find any negative points at all and will stay there every... More

Another great weekend at these apartments. Very friendly staff, spotlessly clean, comfy beds. Great location just off the Grassmarket where there are plenty cafe and restaurants about. Try Maison Blue great value lunch menu. About a 15 minute walk to Princess St. Can't thank the staff enough particularly the man who checked us in and who went to look for... More

We hadn't been to Scotland before & wanted to base ourselves in Edinburgh for a week. The Knight Residence was selected based on TripAdvisor reports & we can attest they were very accurate. From the moment we arrived we were impressed, an off duty Knight Resident staff member who was passing by helped us in with our luggage. Once checked... More

Brilliant stay in a two bed apartment. Room's beautifully clean. Really lovely homely, yet modern feel to the place. Great location. Milk and bread in the fridge and heating on on arrival. Definitely will stay again.

What a find the Knights Resistance was! Absolutely great apartment, very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Most of the reviews mention the extras like bread and milk being provided which I thought was a great touch. The service from the staff was second to none and being greeted in the carpark on my arrival was really welcoming. They'd emailed me... More

We are a family of 5 (2 adults & 3 kids under 8) so trying to find hotels that will offer one room to cater for all of us is a nightmare! Luckily we stumbled across a listing for the Knight Residence. The price isn't cheap but it actually worked out slightly cheaper than having to book two separate hotel... More

The housekeeping team should be especially commended, it was spotless. As should the wonderfully positive helpful and proactive concierge that met us on arrival. Plenty of parking, welcome pack on arrival, wonderful bath robes, toiletries and facilities for winding down. Absolutley no noise from neighbouring apartments guaranteed a peaceful slumber.Highly recommended!
