Reviewed 7 April 2012

We have nothing but rave reviews. We were upgraded upon check in. Our apartment was comfortable and very luxurious. Great in room tea and coffee. Really helpful front desk who sent us to great restaurants and booked tables for us. Only complaints were that we had trouble working the shower - a little too clever/techy. Also, the in room breakfast wasn't worth the money. .

We stayed for 2 nights for our honeymoon in one of the grand apartments. I am particularly fussy about hotels, apartments etc but I literally could not find fault! The staff are friendly and helpful but not over the top. The apartments are spacious and beautiful and the price is so little for what you get! The attention to detail is second to none! I will be returning!

We have just returned from our stay at the Chester Residence and are still overwhelmed by the whole experience. The apartment was very spacious with luxurious contemporary decor with fixtures and fittings thoughtfully selected to complement the rooms. The bed has to be the best sleep ever.
The staff at the Chester Residence are faultless. Everything from organising the airport pick up and arranging special requests, they are the perfect hosts. A special mention to the kilted concierge Neil, who gave us friendly help and advice about all aspects of the amazing Edinburgh.
The Chester Residence is situated in a quiet area but perfectly close to all of Edinburghs attractions.
This stay was a secret surprise for my wife on our silver wedding anniversary and exceeded far beyond my expectations, the whole Chester Residence team made our special occasion, extra special.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. Everything was perfect, from our arrival and introduction to the lovely Neil, to our gift of wine, chocs and more on Saturday evening, which was waiting in our beautifully appointed apartment. We booked a return visit before we had even left. Can't recommend The Chester highly enough, if only all hotels treated their guests with such courtesy and respect!

Room Tip: i don't think there are any bad apartments!

We have just spent a wonderful weekend at the Chester Residence in Edinburgh. The standard of accommodation is amazing. We primarily wanted a break away to relax and so having all the space of the luxury apartment was perfect. We could chill out and enjoy the apartment with no rush to head out into the city. The continental breakfast of fresh fruit salad, fresh breads and a huge array of cheeses and meats was fantastic! The apartment itself was extremely spacious and included a huge living room with dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, luxury bathroom and king size bedroom. Absolute peace and quiet at night combined with blinds and shutters on the windows made for the best night's sleep since we had children! However, the best thing about the Chester Residence is the truly impeccable service of the staff. They really looked after us in a very professional yet friendly manner and nothing was too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend the Chester Residence and hope to visit again before too long.

My boyfriend and I just got back from a 1 night stay in the chester residence, we fell in love with the apartment from the moment we saw it. The high cellings, beautiful decour and amazing living/dinning room with a cosy fire. The staff were very friendly and even recommended and book a table at a local resturant for us. The only bad thing was we would have loved to stay longer!

Well worth a visit to make any special occasion just right. Location is excellent, walking distance for most things in the city. The rooms themselves are superb.
What makes this place so good is the service though. Nothing, and I mean nothing at all seems to be any trouble for any of the staff. Their attention to detail is second to none.
And we appreciated the extra hour before checkout since the clocks changed. Little things like that make all the difference when you get a child free weekend!
We will be back, that's for sure.

The only negative thing I can say (and I'm being picky now!), is that the lighting was somewhat limited when my wife was applying her make up. One mirror in the bathroom/bedroom with some better lighting would be helpful. Maybe even a little portable light. I dare say that in the summer, natural later light will help - but this was before the clocks changed. Otherwise though......as I said above!

Room Tip: If you've not got the legs for it...avoid the Penthouse! It's a fair climb...but worth it in...
