My wife and I spent three nights at the Chester Residence during our honeymoon. We had a penthouse apartment with an amazing amount of space for two people.

The rooms were VERY clean and the king size bed was VERY comfortable. The bathroom was huge with a great shower and massive bath tub. We didn't use the kitchen too much, but it was nice knowing we had it if we needed it. The living room was comfortable and my wife enjoyed the fact that they had the Harry Potter series.

We spent a little time in the lobby/lounge area and were treated to some whiskey and haggis on Burns Night.

The location was good, within walking distance to lots of places to eat. We did get a cab a couple times because we didn't walk to old town.

The staff was VERY friendly and VERY helpful. We really enjoyed our conversations with them.

Our only complaint - we didn't have more time to spend in this amazing hotel in such an amazing city.

Room Tip: Be warned that there are NO lifts, so the penthouse is a good four flights of stairs. If climbing st...

Me and the hubby booked this for our aniversary treat, and wow was it amazing!!! Much better than a hotel. We brought food from the local co-op and made breakfast every morning to save time & pennies! Such a relaxed and very romantic atmosphere! The lounge has free drinks and also free dvds to watch. I would defo stay here again and recomend to others. When i was shown around i was totally speechless as to how amazing it looked! Very stylish! Thankyou to the people who made our stay worthwhile!

Room Tip: Ask if there are any free up grades when you go there as they may let you stay in a better room, how...

After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor there was only going to be one place for my wife and I to stay in Edinburgh .It was a 40th birthday treat for the both of us and what a treat it was!On arrival we were given an upgrade to a beautiful appartment which I'm sure would have made a movie star feel at home,although after seeing around other rooms we would have been more than happy to stay in any of them.The staff were so friendly , it just felt like a home from home , only more luxurious . A special thanks to Ian and Kat for helping to making this the best place we have ever stayed,can't wait for the return trip.

I decided to book Chester Residence after reading the reviews and thought it would be the perfect romantic getaway for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday. The reviews do not lie, the staff could not have been more helpful, from arranging balloons and a birthday cake beforehand to helping us order a take away the on our first night.

The apartment was pure luxury, a home cinema, a giant Jacuzzi bath, a high tech kitchen; this is definitely the best apartment/hotel I have ever stayed in.

Nothing was too much trouble and I could not fault anything. 5 stars!! Thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: Armani Suite!

I booked an apartment with The Chester Residence for our week long stay in Scotland purely based on the reviews in Trip Advisor.

My husband and I arrived at The Chester Residence Saturday evening, weary and exhausted having just finished an unforgetable week in Paris.

So based on others reviews and our recent experience, expectations were high. There was no need for concern at all - The Chester Residence does not disappoint!

The staff are friendly, welcoming and obliging. You truly get the feeling that they enjoy their job and as such instantly feel comfortable. From arranging take away for lazy nights in to valet parking and finding lost items left in rental cars there is no task too big or small for the team (especially the wonderful concierges I-a-n and Neill). It really is the little touches that make you feel comfortable and a little special. Particularly memorable was such our hand delivered mini Rabbi Burns supper.

The apartment itself is magnificent. Our one bedroom apartment was beautifully decorated with the classic features of the building mixed in beautifully with a clean modern decor with a luxurious feel. Did I mention the kitchen to die for? Or the TV in bathroom next to the wonderful rolltop bath?

There is no doubt of where we will be staying when we next return to Edinburgh.

1st Class all the way!! Helpful staff, Beautiful Apartment, Comfy Bed, Warm & Cosy on a v. cold January Weekend. On Sat Night, complimentary drinks at reception 6.30 to 8. Bottle of wine and a goody box in the room, just what we needed after a long day at the shops. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff or the friendly manager who chatted to us while we waited in the lounge for our taxi!Will definately return in the future.
