We had a good stay. This is a very convenient place, very close to the Grassmarket, Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, etc. This is not a luxurious hotel, but is a nice apartment-style property. The service is good, but not up to American 4-star hotel standards. The rates were very reasonable and we were very pleased with our stay. Oddly, there... More

We stayed at The Knight Residence for 2 nights over the weekend. It is a fantastic alternative to over-priced hotels where you struggle to either fit 2 adults and 2 kids in a room, or you pay through the nose for 2 interconnecting rooms. We had a 2 bed apartment, which included a good sized bathroom - an extra WC... More

I recently stayed here for 4 nights and found the apartments very clean and comfortable, everything you need for a home from home. The beds were wonderful and the area was very quiet, enabling a good nights sleep. Staff were friendly and helpful and the welcome pack we received was a big help, this included cereals, milk, butter, tea, hot... More

My wife and I were looking for a reasonable priced hotel for a weekend break in Edinburgh and decided to stay at the Knights Residence as an apartment hotel for 2 nights. We found it to be good value for money with a welcome pack of goodies for the kitchen and a massive video library if we didn't feel like... More

The perfect apartment for 2 adults and 2 teenagers with great facilities and loads of space. Breakfast selection was a real bonus and much appreciated. Thanks Kevin for making us feel so welcome and advice on local places to eat. Super location for seeing Edinburgh and an easy walk to everywhere. We would definitely stay at The Knight Residence if... More

Excellent,as always, in every way. Thanks to Kevin who went to great lengths to arrange our visit to see the Jersey Boys. Nothing is too much trouble, even umbrellas for when it rains. Would recommend it to anyone.

Found this little gem on expedia while searching through limited choices for 2 adults and a teenager in one room. We were absolutely delighted with our choice, great location, spotlessly clean, well equipped, really friendly and helpful staff, and a great night's sleep. We got the tram from the airport to prince's street and the apartment was no more than... More

Stayed at The Knight Residence for two nights with three of my friends. We were all thrilled with the accommodations and were thoroughly impressed with every aspect of The Knight Residence. In particular, we really liked Christopher (at the front desk), who was extremely helpful, nice, and made our stay wonderful. Overall, great experience and would recommend to anyone!
