“Utter Indulgence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

My husband and I spent 3 amazing days in the wonderful city of Edinburgh cocooned in this hotel. Breakfast and papers served in your room was utterly relaxing and indulgent. Nothing was too much trouble and I would happily spend any available moment there.

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.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

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.

Loved this timeshare property and if we ever go back to Edinburgh we would love to stay there again. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were huge and spacious....nothing negative to stay about this place.
