My (new) wife and I stayed here for two nights after our wedding. We booked the penthouse apartment and were not disappointed. The suite was immaculate, a good size and very well equipped.

The best thing about this place though is the staff. Friendly, attentive and considerate - nothing appeared to be too much trouble for them.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it completely.

We stayed at one of the Mews appartments with our family and were stunned by the outstanding value for money. Huge appartment, top end equipment, very stylish interior and all in an excellent condition. Staff were very helpful, especially Ian who always offered a helping hand. We will definitely stay at the Residence should we return to Edinburgh one day.

I just wish there was a Hotel like this everywhere we stay.
We had one of the larger basement apartments, huge space well equipped and easy to walk to everywhere we needed to go.
Also followed the take Indian food recommendations - also great!

We look forward to or return visit.

Absolutely perfect. We had a penthouse suite - with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Fantastic views of the castle from the bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. A short walk to the centre of Edinburgh but nice and peaceful, A real home from home. No complaints at all - sheer luxury - and at a very reasonable price. Perfect

Room Tip: We were in a penthouse suite

Great apartment and fantastic service. Neil (whoe seemed to be our personal butler!) greeted us on arrival outside, offered to park the car and move it on to the street when parking was free and even feed the meter for us when required! My wife was doing the moonwalk and Neil was waiting with hot chocolate as the girls passed the hotel at 3AM!! Never been to a better hotel and never been so well looked after by brilliant staff.
It's perfect if you want to relax and not be around other guests. It was just like having our own flat in Edinburgh! Just the place to ease tired bones after 26 gruelling miles through the night.

If you are going to Edinburgh and have teenagers this is the place to stay. The apartment was fantastic with your own front door to come and go as you please. The staff were exetremely helpful and friendly. The apartment had everything you would need to keep teenagers amused, TV in every room with en-suite facilities and an addtional family bathroom with a to die for bath with TV. The kitchen and living area were great as was the small private garden as well. The location couldn't have been better, in a lovely area of Edinburgh with ample on street parking, just be careful of the people in bright jackets with the lethal hand held ticket machines!!!

Room Tip: Call the hotel themselves!
