Thrilled with my October break.

Couldn't fault a single thing.
Gorgeous decor,
First class service,
Thoughtful details.

Upgraded at check in!! room ready for 10am!! Great staff at reception gave us such a warm welcome.
DVD library, as I browsed I was presented with a bag of popcorn.
Room stunning with first class finish.
Great location- within walking distance of Princes Street.
Reception can order in takeaways, they bring them up, and just add to your bill!

Comfortable beds, great bathrooms and Tempur pillows on request.

Honestly couldn't speak higher of this Luxury bolt-hole close to all amenities

Very impressed with the Chester Residence. The staff were seriously friendly and helpful and an example of how to serve in the accommodation context. The apartment was excellent and wonderfully set up. The only complaint was parking, which wasn't included in the cost and was an extra 24 pounds a day. But that aside, amazing place to stay - I will stay their again.

Our penthouse apartment was stunning - beautiful location, luxurious attention to detail, gorgeous heated floors. I have very high standards but there was nothing about our stay I would have wished to be any different. the staff go out of their way to be helpful. Conveniently located only 5 mins walk to princes Street. Great value for money. We stayed in both classic apartments and penthouse for our wedding anniversary and they were perfect!! Look forward to another anniversary at the Chester soon.

Booked at the last minute for a one night stay for business. If only I could have stayed much longer - it was fabulous from start to finish. HUGE one bedroom apartment ( more like a house) which was beautifully decorated, free wifi, molten brown products and a nespresso machine. No restaurant but they they wre only too happy to bring me a glass of merlot - nothing was too much trouble. I had to go out for a business dinner but would have so much preferred to whip something up in the fabulous kitchen!

Have stayed in so many five star hotels - this is right up there with the best. There is no way I will ever stay anywhere else in Edinburgh from now on. Just gorgeous.

Room Tip: Apartment 3 on Chester street - sublime.

My fiance and I had planned with our very good friends to find somewhere to celebrate their engagement. We simply could not have found a more perfect venue. Right from the outset we could tell the residence exuded style in an informal but pristine setting. Our penthouse appartment was simply beautiful. immaculatly kept and very well appointed. We unfortunately arrived late on our first night and we met our friends in the intimate bar area where we planned our night ahead in Edinburgh. However, after very convivial conversation with staff (a particular mention to Rory who was nothing short of fantastic) and several rather well received single malts we decided to eat in. Staff arranged the food and took our wine selection to our room !
For anyone visiting Edinburgh looking for somewhere to stay I could simply not extole the virtues of this place enough.

We recently stayed here as a family and could not rate more highly. Our apartment was beautifully appointed, warm, great layout and the location was fantastic and parking easy! What made a beautiful place even better was the brilliant staff, they were personable, genuine and went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect (including dropping a bag of popcorn to us when they knew the kids wanted to watch a DVD). We would highly recommend and would definitely come back. One of the best apartments we've stayed in ever!

Room Tip: Ask the staff they are genuinely incredibly helpful and want to make your stay the best it can be

My boyfriend & I stayed at the Chester Residence for a short Autumn break and we were both blown away by the standard of service and product they had to offer.
When we arrived, we were very impressed by the meet & greet service at the airport, a room upgrade and the requests concierge had fulfilled that we asked of them. Staff always had a smile on their faces.
Definitely the best place to stay in Edinburgh!
Thanks Chester Residence
