The suite was amazing! The breakfast was superb, but most of all the staff was great! Although there was a mistake with our reservation they solved it immediately and everyone was very polite and helpfull. If I travel in Edinburgh again I will definitely stay there!!

As a timeshare owner we have been visiting for nearly 20 years, unfortunately standards are slipping and it's not nearly as good as it use to be. Breakfast a disappointment my advice is go out for it. Attention to detail lacking, lights broken, shaver sockets not working, noisy fan or something in our living area that went on all day... More

Good to be back in the comfortable environment of the Residence, where we have enjoyed a flexible time-share week for the past fourteen years. Although retaining it's time share facilities, the Residence is now owned by the Hapimag group (www.hapimag.com) and suites can be booked independently. These are expansive and comfortable, with plenty of room to relax and with bathrooms... More

After staying in various levels of accommodation from Luxury to Budget we were pleasantly surprised. Differently not your average hotel. We arrived around 4pm after driving up from London.

The Edinburgh Residence offers a unique hotel experience and doesn't compare easily to other 5* properties. The big advantage for us was having the extra space of a suite to relax in at the end of a busy day attending numerous Festival events. Our Grand suite was huge with fabulous high ceilings and big sash windows overlooking Dean village. I... More

We stayed here for Valentine's Day on a short break to visit Edinburgh for the first time. We must say that this place provided a wonderful introduction to the city for us. The hotel was styled with a traditional yet luxurious interior; dark wood panelled walls, antique design furnishings etc. We had booked a classic suite, but due to some... More

My husband and I spent 3 amazing days in the wonderful city of Edinburgh cocooned in this hotel. Breakfast and papers served in your room was utterly relaxing and indulgent. Nothing was too much trouble and I would happily spend any available moment there.

We stayed over at this amazing hotel during our visit to Edinburgh. We were felt welcome as soon as we stepped inside the hotel. THe suites were amazing and spacious. As compared to our stay in York before, this felt out of the world. The breakfast was really elaborate the next morning. The only issue we had was high temperatures... More

Have stayed at the Edinburgh Residence on a number of occasions, have always been impressed. Attentive and cheerful staff as always. We feel there is an issue with quality control in maintenance - our faulty bathroom tap had to be repaired twice (It should have been identified and fixed before we arrived), next to impossible to budge sash windows, again...
