We stayed here for three nights earlier in the month. It was a luxurious treat, the residence and staff were excellent. There were a number of little touches which you just would not get if you were staying at a conventional hotel.

We rented 3 apartments for the weekend to celebrate my wife's 50th in Edinburgh with friends and family. We know Edinburgh quite well but had not been aware of the Chester previously. From the first greeting when we arrived we found everything to be of a superb standard and helped contribute to a perfect weekend. In order to keep the... More

Small touches like a free cocktail and canopies on the first night only help to heighten the experience, it's the little things that matter! Whatever your reason for your visit... More

I booked a 1 night stay at this hotel as a surprise for my boyfriend's 30th Birthday. As soon as I made the booking, someone emailed me thanking me for my booking and offering support on making it a special experience. The workers were so friendly and welcoming and were always quick to help (they helped us choose a DVD... More

This is a great hotel in a wonderful renovated townhouse. We had a truly spacious apartment on the ground floor with a fully equipped kitchen & luxury bathroom. The furnishings are really comfortable with a lovely 'real' gas fire. The staff were so friendly and everything I had booked as part of the birthday occasion package was top notch, especially...

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Attention to detail second to none. Service from staff superb. Location is great, 5 minute walk to princess street, 30 mins to royal mile. Will definitely return.

So this hotel already has a lot going for it being situated in one of the world's most beautiful cities, Edinburgh. But it's then located in one of the most beautiful areas of the city. Found in rows of stunning Georgian town houses in the West End, the location is perfect, just far enough away that you feel you are... More

I recently stayed in this apartment with my sister and my mum. We were over here for a visit from Germany for a few days. On arrival it was a very warm welcome. The staff were just amazing and totally went the extra mile. The receptionist that checked us in super friendly and tried really hard to speak German with... More

This place just rocks! My son and I were in the UK for his spring break and we spent 3 nights in Edinburgh. Lovely room, but it was really the staff and the little touches that just added up. We had as much or as little service as we wanted and everything just worked. The staff was superb. I will... More

My daughter and her boyfriend have just treated me to a stay at the Chester Residence. Wow! This place is utterly brilliant. From the superb decor to the incredibly helpful staff I could not in all my experience of hotels find one to rival it.
