“Fabulous stay in Edinburgh Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Just got back from a fabulous weekend stay here. The apartment was spotless and very well furnished and equipped. The concierge was helpful and friendly. The welcome pack was extensive with everything you could need for breakfast as well as dishwash tabs and toiletries etc. A good central location within easy walking distance of central Edinburgh. I would definitely recommend the apartments and stay here again on our next trip to Edinburgh.

We (2 adults), coming from Germany, spent last week in the basic apartment in the Knights Residence. From the picture we had seen before online, we did not really expect too much. Too our total suprise it turned out we had 4 rooms available to us: a fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine / a bathroom including bathtub / a living room with TV / a bedroom with TV. Everything was clean and housekeeping came daily. What impressed us most was the great service - the smallest request was taken very serious and when i asked for a grater to grate apples with, they found me a brandnew one right away. There are other nice suprises,too such as the DVD collection with brandnew films ( only 2 pound a film which you could keep as long as you wanted) or the umbrellas you could borrow on a rainy day. The stripbars nearby did not bother us at all (- and there is also a convent close by , for balance...) I have to say that it could be a bit noisy on the weekend, as our apartment was facing the street - so if you think you might be bothered by this, I´d recommend one of the apartments facing the parking lot. Apart from this, I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: facing away from the steet

We were four people and spent five nights in Edinburgh. The accommodations are ideal if you want privacy and it felt just like being at home in your own appartment. Comfortable beds, two nice bathrooms (small but OK), TVs whereever you turned and all amenities. Showers took some minutes getting used to, and we missed a fourth chair in the kitchen, but that's the only thing on the negative side. The staff was very helpful and the location was ideal. I can't imagine a better place to stay if you want to spend a few days in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Our appartment had the address High Riggs (second floor) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it...

We visited the Knight Residence for an overnight stay in Edinburgh and loved it. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was clean, comfortable and really quiet. It was a short walk away from the Royal Mile and next door to a small Sainsbury local. Although the apartment was already stocked with bread, cereal, milk, fruit juice, butter, jam, biscuits and tea/coffee so no need to buy much.
There was also an activity pack and a small teddy bear for our daughter which was a lovely touch and really delighted our daughter.
The apartment has everything you could need including tv and DVD player and a wide selection of DVDs you can borrow. They also have a very useful folder of local attractions and activities. Oh and there's free wifi included.
Top it all off with some really friendly and helpful staff and hence 5 stars from me!
Absolutely loved this apartment and if we go back for another break in Edinburgh would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Our apartment faced over the car park so not much of a view but it was blissfully silent even though...

My family and I spent four nights in a 2-bedroom unit. We were immediately impressed by the exceptionally friendly greeting the staff provided us upon check-in. They took the time to give us a detailed guided of our apartment. The kitchen was already stocked with food staples (cereal, milk, juices, bread) and they had teddy bears and coloring books ready and waiting for our kids. The rooms were spacious, clean and sound-proof. We were on the first floor right on the street level and yet did not hear any street noise whatsoever. The location was excellent, right in the heart of beautiful Edinburgh.

All told, we had a fantastic vacation in Edinburgh but all agreed that our stay at the Knight Residence made it a special one. I HIGHLY recommend this place. And will gladly stay here again without hesitation.

This was our second stay here as we were so impressed last time we stayed. The apartment was ideal for our family, great facilities, comfortable and clean.
Very close to the Grassmarket and the old town, which we love.
