Having stayed in Edinburgh several times, it was great to find the Edinburgh Residence as it was so convenient to walk/ bus to everywhere, but very peaceful for for a great night sleep and relaxing. The room was beautiful and spacious including the bathroom. The staff were extremely polite and nothing was too much trouble. Good room service and a... More

We'd left booking too late for the festival but was pleasantly surprised with this charming place. Excellent WiFi strength throughout, lovely styled rooms and generous complementary's. I didn't mind the bathroom being small as we were only here for one night but definitely in need of modernisation. Staff were incredibly charming and helpful, breakfast was lovely although the dining room... 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...

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.

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
