Certificate of Excellence
The Edinburgh Residence is a collection of 29 elegant suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh. Categorized as ‘Classic’, ’Grand’ and ‘Townhouse’, the 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.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods 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 theatres 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.

Great hotel in a lovely location. Great rooms, and breakfast is brought to your room at a time that suits you. The tram stop is a5 minute walk from the hotel. Edinburgh Castle is also only a short walk away.

Very grand ... suites are lovely and spacious and we had a great view Private and quiet ... away from the hustle of the city ... but a good mile and a half to get to main attractions. Breakfast served in the room ... lovely ... and a slightly decadent feel to the experience.

Located in a Georgian townhouse close to the Dean village, minutes away from Princes street and Thistle street. Each suite is like a small apartment or a studio, except that there is a 24-hour reception and you basically get all the services of an hotel. We had a suite with
