“Complete attention to detail makes a great accommodation experience”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We stayed for five nights in April. Our apartment had everything we needed and more. The Knight Residence went above and beyond in their response to a complicated request involving accommodating additional guests and this was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended on every count.

Room Tip: Our apartment was on High Riggs and as this is a no-throughway, it was very quiet.

I'm hard to please with self catering accommodation.
This place is superb. Immaculate, cosy yet stylish apartments in the heart if the city.
You will be surprised by the attention to detail and how homely this residence is. Fully equipped kitchen to satisfy little fussy family members and decent wine glasses and a spotlessly clean fridge to satisfy mum!
Impressive.

Well what can we say about The Knights Residence. What an amazing place to stay,Everything you will ever need in accommodation when visiting the beautiful city of Edinburgh which is within walking distance,Service is second to none here and we were made to feel very very welcome by Charlie (a real lovely bloke) and the little touches like the breakfast pack and colouring books and teddys for the kids to keep was fantastic,Will definitely stay again at this little treasure in such a big city.

The apartment style of the KR is quite well executed. With a kitchen (partially stocked), washer/dryer, sitting room, DVR/BlueRay player, and other amenities, it provides a very good setting. The location is ideal (despite the oft noted two strip clubs nearby) for access to downtown Edinburgh. The University is nearby, Princes Street and the Royal Mile a short walk, and much of the theater district a short walk away.

The design of the "flat" is very nice and relaxing. The furniture good and in good condition.

The only main complaint is the bed -- a few hundred more pounds spent on a mattress would put this place over the top.

We stayed at the Knights residence for 1 night as a family of four. This was one of the few apartments that offered a second bedroom as a twin ideal for our son and daughter. My 9 year old daughter declared she had slept like a baby and had the best nights sleep ever! The apartment was clean, spacious and ideally located for all the sights of Edinburgh, easy walking distance of the castle with bus stops close by. The welcome pack was ideal for breakfast and we had no need to purchase anything else for breakfast or drinks although there is a sainsburys two minutes walk away. We would thoroughly recommend the apartment and would definitely stay again if we revisit Edinburgh.

Fantastic service, very welcoming and informative. A large apartment with everything you could need and very central. Parking spot was a bonus and rare to Edinburgh.
Welcome basket was a very nice surprise, complete with milk, bread, tea, coffee, juice, cereal, butter and jam. Would absolutely stay here again.
