When we arrived we were taken to our apartment, there was a lovely welcome pack which included cereal, bread, biscuits and milk. Just what we needed for getting ready in the mornings. Rooms were comfy and spacious. Our daughter who had been travelling Europe, met us there. It was perfect for the reunion, giving everyone space. Once we parked the... More

We would have loved to stayed longer! This is a prime location for old town Edinburgh. Walk right out and you are in the middle of everything, close to the castle & all the shops and pubs Comfortable rooms with lots of goodies for your stay

What a haven this is, with the Edinburgh castle a short walk away! Lovely apartment, supplied with food and even teddy bears for the kids. Great facilities and space, so happy to have a washing machine and even a dining room. A Sainsbury's grocery is a close walk away. My only complaint is that there's some night noise, and a... More

Want to stay in a "hotel" that is really an apartment with dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, stove, oven, microwave, breakfast basket of goodies? Knight Residence is a wonderful place to stay, with a lift, incredibly kind and helpful staff, clean & safe and in the midst of all the fun. Can't say enough good things about it!

We have just returned from another three night stay with the family for the Festival - the Fringe and the Book Festival. I think it must be our 9th or 10th annual stay and the kids are now 19, 17 and 15! We find the Knight residence is ideal for us - a home from home in a very central... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights during the very busy festival time. (Aug 3-6, 2014) We tried to book a 2 bedroom apartment back in January of 2014 and the website said they were already full. I called to confirm this and they suggested I try Expedia as they hold some rooms. Luckily I got one through Expedia. I’m... More

This was our 11th visit to The Knight Residence and we enjoy the friendly welcome and central location every time. The spacious rooms and communal areas are kept very clean and Colin, Chris and staff are all very helpful. We always book 5 rooms for our party to visit the Festival Fringe and everybody in the party enjoys staying here,... More

Thanks Sam, we are delighted that you come back to us every year - has it really been 12 years now, how time flies. There is such a choice of accommodation in Edinburgh - you must sometimes consider tying something new for a change and I am personally honoured that you have stayed loyal to us. We truly appreciate that... More

This was our third stay and once again it was exceptional. All of the staff could not be more helpful, the apartment facilities first class and perfectly placed for exploring Edinburgh. Near by supermarket was useful for stocking up on essentials and public transport links nearby meant we could leave the car in the car park most of the time.
