Our recent trip to Edinburgh was made all the better by our stay at the Knight Residence. When we first arrived, we were greeted by Charlie, who took very good care of us and showed us to our suite. Because these are apartment style rooms that include kitchens, the staff was so kind to have included a welcome package for... More

We stayed 4 days at the Knight Residence and our stay was perfect. The location is great, we loved the nearby parc ( Meadow Park). The staff is diligent, friendly, and full of nice attentions, I.e stocking the kitchen with breakfast stuff. Highly recommended for families. Some of the Wifi restrictions should be reviewed to make it more practical.

We chose the Knight residence as an expedia+ hotel. We were upgraded to a two bed apartment. There were welcome goodys for me and the kids. There was so much space for myself and two kids! Everyone was wishing we were staying longer than a night, and I think for a longer trip it would provide an ideal family residence.... More

This was a real find, large rooms, first rate service, off street parking and near the old part of Edinburgh. The staff and service was first rate with a basket of groceries provided free to get us started. Lots of advice on where to eat and go. Close to the main attractions including the older part of Edinburgh just a... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 adults and 2 teenage children. The location could not have been better for exploring the Grassmarket and Castle. The staff were very friendly and helpful if you have any questions about the city or where to eat. Although there are a few "adult" clubs at the end of the block, we... More

We traveled through Edinburgh for two nights with our family of five (2 adults and 3 teenagers). I booked at the Knight Residence based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. The location is very central (maybe a ten minute walk to the castle) and close to many dining options, shops, etc. The hotel appears to be a former... More

The Knight Residence was a perfect location for our five day stay in Edinburgh. We rented a triple that included a separate bedroom with a comfortable pull out sofa in the living room.. The rooms were clean, the service was excellent, and the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and, surprisingly, assorted breakfast items including cereal, milk, bread, coffee and teas.... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights and it was everything you could possibly want. All the facilities were clean and easy to use, and the staff were very helpful when we couldn't figure out how to work the washer-dryer. The location is great, as it is within walking distance of Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.... More

The apartment was very comfortable and spacious. Loved the... More
