Planning a get away trip with one's spouse has inherent risks from flights to especially the hotel. The Chester Residence provided seamless process from start to the most exceptional experience of staying I have had in my many years of travel. The apartments were exceptionally well done and and comfortable and the service surpassed supremely attentive. Definitely would recommend over... More

These are very luxurious apartments, well furnished and with good service. Breakfast can be ordered up to 1am for the following morning. When you arrive there is milk and mineral water in the fridge as well as tea and Nespresso coffee, so even if you are genuinely self-catering, the essentials are there. This is not a cheap option, but if... More

I was extremely happy with our stay at the Chester Residence. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we expected to drop our bags off early to be told we could get access to our apartment and what an apartment it was - 2 large bedrooms with large en-suites with a walk in shower and Molton brown goodies, a bathroom...

We just spent 4 nights here on a mini-moon and we were both absolutely delighted. The service is PERFECT- efficient, friendly and not at all stuffy despite the 5 star surroundings. We went for the honeymoon package and it was worth every penny- gorgeous and generous snack foods, bath butler with Molton Brown goodies....even a surprise bottle of champagne on... More

Booked the Chester Residence for a 3 night stay over half term. Having a 9 year old, 15 year old and a Mum and Dad who just wanted to unwind from school runs, clubs (as in gymnastics and teenage stuff rather than banging tunes at 2am ..!) and work, the Chester was perfect. As a growing family we all need... More

Just returned from a f great couple of nights at The Chester Residence with my partner. The apartment itself was immaculate with a comfortable king bed and stunning kitchen - great for cooking dinner in and having a lovely romantic evening. Previously we have opted to stay in hotels so an apartment was a slight change - great for couples... More

The Chester Residence is the best hotel/accommodation you will find in Edinburgh. The staff is friendly, helpful and respectful. The rooms are immaculate, spacious and elegantly designed and decorated. The location is perfect to get around town, yet is located on a quiet street. Our family has stayed here at various times over the last 5 years, and they just... More

Don't pay any attention to any bad reviews of this place. They are either from a competitor or out of their minds! Me and my Wife have just returned from a weekend break and this place is AMAZING. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and the apartment was one of the best I have ever stayed in.... More

What a superb location and excellent hotel, all of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were made to feel very welcome from the outset. A 5 star hotel with 5 star service. Many thanks to all of the staff for making our stay so special.

This place was superb. We thought for a little while that all the reviews were too good to be true, but honestly they aren't. The attention to detail was obvious, and the staff couldn't be more helpful. You will not be disappointed staying here. A nice short walk from Princess Street (Centre of Edinburgh) so not at all noisy, but... More
