We experienced excellent service and had a lovely, luxurious stay at the Chester in Edinburgh. We had booked a slightly upgraded flat and it was HUGE and comfortable. We had dinner there one night, as well as the great welcome snacks for lunch and breakfast throughout our 3 night stay. I ended up coming down with a bad cold during... More

Just returned from a three night stay at the chester residence and could not have wished for more. We stayed in the owners residence which was superb, the accommodation and service was first class and their attention to detail was fantastic. The location was perfect, just five minute walk from princes street. The staff were friendly, helpful and went out... More

Absolutely sublime! For our first trip to Edinburgh we decided to push the boat out and this was the epitome of excellence. Everything was to the highest standard - the staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful; the room was spacious enough for ten of us, let alone just the two; and we had the best night's sleep we've had in...

What a fantastic flat. Had booked dinner at a nearby hotel but they had no rooms available. Tried the Chester Residence and really pleased that we did. Huge lounge, great bathroom and kitchen. Quality of the accommodation was superb with high quality fittings. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Cannot rate highly enough and far better value/quality/space than the five star... More

I booked a night at The Chester Residence for my partners birthday, from start to finish it was fabulous! It is in a great central location, literally 5 minutes walk to Princes street and also in close proximity to Haymarket station. Upon arrival we were met by a man in a kilt, a lovely touch! The bags were taken to... More

The Chester Residence that we stayed in was a spacious apartment with two bedrooms, two ensuites, bathroom with a large kitchen/lounge/dining area. All modern conveniences were provided, this coupled with the space made it a very comfortable environment for my one year old niece, her parents, my pregnant wife and I. The staff were extremely cordial without being over the... More
