A very high quality hotel. Great rooms, great service, great food. Unbeatable value. I think that the Edinburgh Residence is amazingly good value for five star accommodation near the city Centre but in a quiet location.

My wife and I spent 4 nights in a Grand Suite at The Edinburgh Residence from 14th to 18th March and felt like pampered guests in a private country residence that felt like home. The spacious clean accommodation with high ceilings and abundance of wood is enhanced by exceptional personal attention and smiling service by Harryson, Rimas and team. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were not disappointed. From the very warm welcome on arrival by the receptionist and porter, we were quickly checked in and our car parked for us in the private car park. We were shown to our room (suite 3) and settled in with its features pointed out to us. The suite itself was... More

Our one bedroomed apartment was on the third floor, huge bedroom with en-suite, dining area, sitting room with sofa bed and second bathroom. The views were wonderful and the apartment and everything was 5 star. Furnishings good and especially the bed, good quality all round.... More

I could not fault the staff and service at this hotel but feel the cabinets in the room were in great need of TLC the curtains and lighting were awful. Nice and clean and comfy though. Would have no hesitation in coming back.

Have stayed at the Residence on several occasions; it never disappoints us. Having looked over some earlier reviews I think most details have been covered; however, will add our experience anyway. Firstly, we have never received anything less than a friendly welcome, parking in Edinburgh is challenging, so arriving and having your car taken is a great start. The rooms... More

Had a wonderful 3 night stay for the Hogmanay celebrations. Our suite (30) was large and very comfortable. Two lovely big sofas, one each for stretching out on! Despite being at the front of the building it was extremely quiet and we slept very well. It's not as central as some of the hotels but it's a short walk to... More
