We had 2 - 2 bedroom apartments on our stay and we loved them! The beds were comfy, rooms were clean, and the lovely welcome basket they provide is so refreshing after a long day of travel when you are hungry. The staff were very helpful and kind and always seemed to be doing "a little extra" location was just... More

We stayed at the Khnight Residence with my wife and daughter for 2 nights by mid Spetember. It gave us a very warm feeling. Just line staying at home. Friendly and helpful staff. Good parking at a charge of only GBP7.5 per day. Will for sure stay again in my next visit to Edinburgh.

Loved staying here. The staff were excellent & very informative. Apartment was so well equipped with everything a travelling family needs. Having a washing machine & dryer was heaven!!! Absolutely loved the gift basket of breakfast goodies. They have thought of everything in these apartments. I highly recommend the Knights Residence for families, made our stay in Edinburgh most enjoyable.

I searched every accommodation in Edinburgh and decided on the Knight Residence due to all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, as well as the size of the accommodation (2BR). We haven't even stayed there yet and I'm already pretty happy. I had emailed with some questions after making the reservation, and their response was prompt, courteous and helpful. They... More

We recently had a few days in Edinburgh and stayed at the Knight Residence in a comfortable, clean, well appointed one bedroom apartment. Very convenient location and friendly, helpful staff Kevin, Chris and Charlie were great. Being able to do laundry was wonderful! We would definitely stay there again! Thank you!

My two daughters & I had a 2 bedroom/2bath apartment & were thrilled with the accommodations! It was clean, spacious.....a full kitchen (stocked w/necessities, which was lovely). Everything worked great, beds were comfy & it's right off Grassmarket & the Royal Mile. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!! Oh.....and the staff were absolutely fabulous!

I travelled with two adolescent children (and all that such entails). Endinburgh is, of course, a magical and beautiful city and coming home to the Knight Residence every afternoon only enhanced the charm of our visit. The apartments are roomy and immaculate. Plenty of space to plug in, tune out and take a respite from one another and also enjoy... More
