The ER is converted old house on the edge of the new town. The floors we were on I could only describe as somewhat labyrinthine (I think there are 5 turns and 4 doors between the stairs and our suite). Each suite seems to be unique (our son's suite was very different than ours), but large and comfortable. It has... More

Travelling as a couple we had one week in Suite 19 that has amazing views over Dean Village complex. Superbly furnished with every amenity - large comfortable double bed, microwave cooker and fridge available; tea/coffee making; Jacuzzi bath and separate shower etc. Service is first class. It is very quiet with no traffic noise, and the hotel has free parking... More

Lovely room and the service is great!! However, for the first time ever in 20 years of staying here there was a lot of loud noise at about 9.10-9.25am caused by the cleaners speaking /shouting very loudly when cleaning the room opposite. This only happened once but unfortunately it had to happen on the morning we had decided to have... More

Makes a refreshing change not to bump into yourself when you go to the bathroom! The staff go out of their way to help and are very friendly. The... More

Booked here for a one nighter in Edinburgh and could not believe how good it was. Staff from arriving to leaving could not be more helpful, even at midnight when we fancied a nightcap having come back from a special party. Free private parking at the back is a huge bonus! although the valet seemed disappointed I'd found it myself.... More

Booked this place as a surprise for my other half's birthday and was not disappointed. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome. Room was amazing with fantastic views of the city. Bathroom was bigger than I've seen in most places. Felt at home right away and the breakfast choice was very good and catered for... More

We have just finished our 20 years of timeshare at this property. It's had its ups and downs, and some visits have been better than others. This time it was first class and it seems to have improved under its new owners. Staff very friendly and efficient, And nothing too much trouble. Cannot comment on the food as Edinburgh has... More

Enjoyed our stay. Special thank you to Stefano. He was extremely friendly and great with our son. Made us feel very welcome which was appreciated after a long travel day. Very nice rooms. Plenty of space and the beds are comfortable. Wifi works good. Walkable distance to old and new town.

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.

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
