Just so very very good!! The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. There is parking at the rear of the building and the staff kindly moved our car to there and on a subsequent occasion reparked the car when we had blocked other cars in. Meals, including breakfast, are taken in your suite. The choice is good and the... More

Walking in the front door of The Residence, we knew this stay would be different from any other we've been to. We traded one of our RCI timeshares for the week, and were very pleased with the rooms. Yes, the bathroom is large, the largest we've ever been in, but we loved it! Plenty of room to move around, a... More

I stayed at Edinburgh Residence through Interval as I have two timeshares with Marriott. The reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that we did not find the furniture very comfortable. The way the room is arranged is that you have a very large bathroom but the the microwave, coffeemaker, dishes, small refrigerator etc are in an... More

While travelling with my daughter to Edinburgh and settling her into the University there I had the great fortune to come by this well run, clean and beautiful residence. It was a lovely walking distance to the centre of town and church and restaurants and it was as though we were staying with well to do relatives. The rooms were... More

Is it a room, an apartment a studio? Make your own mind up but they are huge spaces to reside in, extremely comfortable and with classic décor in keeping with this fine old classic Edinburgh building. Parking at the rear is available with valet service if required. The service of the staff is second to none. Extremely attentive, polite and... More

A super find. Everything was perfect, from the welcome in Reception to the superb value full breakfast served in the sumptuous room, this was perhaps the best place we've ever stayed. The room (16) was fantastic. It had a beautiful sitting room with windows on two sides, which led to a wonderful bedroom. I could go on but you get... More

The Edinburgh Residence was part of an ambitious and exclusive timeshare scheme in the early 2000s that we bought into. A series of premier hotels individually crafted was the idea but unfortunately the idea failed through financial over extension. The Edinburgh Residence remains a jewel and my wife and I look forward to our weeks stay split between a 3... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 1 night. It is slightly out of the city centre but still within walking distance. Car park is located round the back of the hotel so don't park out the front as this is permit only. Lady on reception was more than welcoming. Porter helped with bags and took us to the room....

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
