Just looking through photos of our holiday last year (Scotland & Croatia) When we were lucky even to stay at the Chester Residence Mid July for 5 nights.

The rooms were huge, the staff were so helpful & friendly, location fantastic. We hope to visit again in the future again!! I believe we had rooms 9/2 & 9/3 in the main reception wing, with a bar & coffee or tea lounge in the main area to socialise with other guests & young Neil attending to our every need - our stay at Chester was smooth from start to finish, so glad we stayed for 5 nights as we didn't want to leave!

The breakfasts we arranged to get delivered to our rooms every morning were so delicious! The kitchens in the rooms were well equipped & included the very necessary coffee machine & pods. Bathrooms were beautiful & the apartments, were all furnished beautifully & kept so clean. We would highly recommend The Chester Residence to anyone staying in Edinburgh as it is such a lovely place to stay & such a stunning place to visit.

Wonderful retreat from home. Beautiful old refurbished apartments. Great welcoming kilted staff. Complementary pre dinner drinks in the bar. Resturant booked for us and transport arranged, nothing too much trouble. We walked into the centre of the city in 10 minutes.

Room Tip: All rooms cover the whole floor of the apartments. We did not experience any noise and it was a bank holiday weekend.

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed our spacious apartment very much. Everything is very stylish and of finest quality. What's missing, though, is a little personal touch here and there. Front desk staff are very helpful and efficient but they didn't really make us feel "at home". They obviously don't go with the one face to the customer-approach at this place - but on the other hand, who needs it when the rooms speek for themselves?

Would choose it again when returning to Edinburgh. Nice units in a residencial neighbourhood, walknig distance from many atractions. Old apartments completely refurbished. No lift, higher apartments are in 2nd floor (3rd for american standards).

Exactly as advertised. The photos show quite accurate depictions of the rooms. Superb staff and a decent location. We walked everywhere easily throughout our stay often using the restaurants recommend in the book we received on check in.
