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...

My wife and I have enjoyed another fantastic 5 night break at Edinburgh Residence and would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for quality accommodation and service way beyond what you get from the usual chains. Our suite was superb and the service faultless! One morning I had to cancel my pre-ordered breakfast as I had suffered a stomach upset... More

We had a lovely stay when I picked my brother and his wife up from Edinburgh airport. Though the stay was short it lived up to the description of grandeur and comfort given to me by my friend who visits once a year in September. Most staff speak two languages, which was great as my relations are from Germany, so... More

The Edinburgh Residence is part hotel, part timeshare in the west end of Edinburgh. We have been time owners for 15 years or more, taking our week at various times of the year and in the various rooms of our category of suite. It is a wonderful place, spacious accommodation, attentive service, and unashamed comfort. We have the middle grade,... More

Very friendly staff, the room was huge and beautiful with a lovely view over Dean Village, great breakfast served in the room and the location was perfect. The Edinburgh residence is definitely our favourite place to stay in Edinburgh and we will be back.

We stayed in the Edinburgh Residence for two nights and i have to say it was a fantastic alternative to a hotel. You basically get a suite within an Edinburgh townhouse, but with the added advantage of room service. The breakfast served in the room was very good and a great selection to chose from. The bathroom was huge and... More

Thank you kindly for reviewing us and for your great feedback. The courtyard suites are popular with many of our guests due to the fact that they provide some outside space, however, I am very sorry to learn that you were slightly disappointed with the location of your suite. I am very glad you enjoyed everything else about your stay... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edinburgh Residence is a collection of 29 elegant, 5-star hotel suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh. Categorized as 'Classic,' 'Grand' and 'Town House,' the 5-star suites are more like apartments, with magnificent proportions that really allow you to spread out and make yourself at home. In some, the sitting rooms are adjoining, and in others they are self-contained. ... more   less
