We stayed here for 5 nights over the new year. After looking for ages on the internet we found this place and thought it looked too good to be true - excellent reviews, excellent location, excellent rooms and after staying there we can say that everything is EXCELLENT! We paid slightly more for a Grand Suite and it was huge... More

We stayed here for one night as part of our honeymoon. We had arrived early but fortunately our room was ready for us. Our car was parked by a porter and our cases brought to our room. The room we had was grand. It was comfortable and large. I think it would have been more than comfortable had we even... More

We recently stayed in townhouse 21 for 7 days ( thank you to Debbie Currie for booking this perfect room for us) because it was lovely! We have been owners for years and Debbie seemed to know that we would like this room - how intuitive - thank you. The service was great, the room is decorated in a regal... More

we visit Edinburgh 2 or 3 times a year and always stay at the Residence. Rooms are large, comfortable and all different. The staff are excellent always helpful and knowledgeable. The location is also good. Just a comfortable walk to Princes St and the new tram yet very quiet.

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.

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

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
