We stayed over at this amazing hotel during our visit to Edinburgh. We were felt welcome as soon as we stepped inside the hotel. THe suites were amazing and spacious. As compared to our stay in York before, this felt out of the world. The breakfast was really elaborate the next morning. The only issue we had was high temperatures at night inspite of no heaters being on. I will let that go considering other pleasant experiences. I would recommend this place to anyone who wishes to have a great time in Edinburgh!

Have stayed at the Edinburgh Residence on a number of occasions, have always been impressed.
Attentive and cheerful staff as always.
We feel there is an issue with quality control in maintenance - our faulty bathroom tap had to be repaired twice (It should have been identified and fixed before we arrived), next to impossible to budge sash windows, again this should be checked and in staff inter communication - having to repeat requests more than once lets down the otherwise impressive performance.

My wife and I have enjoyed another fantastic 5 night break at Edinburgh Residence and would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for quality accommodation and service way beyond what you get from the usual chains. Our suite was superb and the service faultless!
One morning I had to cancel my pre-ordered breakfast as I had suffered a stomach upset during the night and about 2 hours later the lovely receptionist, Angelique, called my suite to check how I was feeling and to ask if there was anything I required - where else do you get that level of personal attention?
We look forward to our next visit very soon.

We had a lovely stay when I picked my brother and his wife up from Edinburgh airport. Though the stay was short it lived up to the description of grandeur and comfort given to me by my friend who visits once a year in September. Most staff speak two languages, which was great as my relations are from Germany, so no problem with communication. Room service was quick ant the food delicious. We did not have time to enjoy all of the residence, but I will return for a longer stay soon, as the position is so convenient to explore Edinburgh.

The Edinburgh Residence is part hotel, part timeshare in the west end of Edinburgh. We have been time owners for 15 years or more, taking our week at various times of the year and in the various rooms of our category of suite. It is a wonderful place, spacious accommodation, attentive service, and unashamed comfort. We have the middle grade, a Grand suite, that gives you huge bed, one or two sofas armchair, kettle microwave and mini fridge (though woe betide you if you bring in your own toaster, and worse still if you set the fire alarms off. There's also a small dining table.. If you get tired of your spacious room, there is a beautiful drawing room downstairs, complete with papers and a computer. Otherwise just look out of the windows, either towards the castle, or over Dean Village across the Firth of Forth to Fife.

There is 24-hour room service - I love breakfast there. People may think not having a dining room is a down side, but with the variety in Edinburgh to choose from, many within walking distance - a sister hotel with dining room is a mere 200 yards away. If in doubt, ask the ever-helpful staff or look in the book in the hall where visitors make their own recommendations.

It's relaxation in spades!
