We stayed at The Knight Residence for 2 nights over the weekend.

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.

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!
