“Chester Residence made our stay perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

3 tired women travelled to Edinburg for a couple of relaxing days. We had the most beautiful apartment at Chester! 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a lovely living room and kitchen. It was so nice and spacy that we ended up by the fireplace every late evening with a good glas of wine.
Very good beds, the most lovely pillows!
Since we had some rain we enjoyed staying in even more! After a late breakfast we visited the Castle, the National Gallery, went shopping on George Street, had some lovely afternoon tea with all the trimmings and went for a good meal in the evenings.
Great location - only 6 minutes from the shopping area and all th attractions in walking distance. . Edinburgh ist a nice town and within a few days you know your ways around.

We did not need the staff very much but when we contacted them they were very nice and professional! They even let us check out one hour later on the day of departure!

I am defenitely coming back and hopefully soon!

We had such a brilliant time again, we did not explore Edinburgh too much this time as our main purpose for the trip was to see The Lion King. Therefore, we made the most of the apartment and had some relaxation. This time we did not really see the staff although what we did experience was exceptional. We even got a souvenir to remember our theatre trip :-)

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary on Sunday evening and where do I start. The staff are all fantastic and very friendly and nothing was too much bother. We were upgraded to a VIP suite with cinema and massive jacuzzi bath and did not want to go out for dinner but we did. We received a glass of champagne at the restaurant with compliments from the Chester crew which was a lovely personal touch. Dinner was great at Kyloe and when we returned to the room the candles were lit and petals were on the bed not to mention projected stars
on the ceiling!!
The next morning I managed to set off the smoke alarm when I burnt our toast and even though it must have created a bit of hassle for the staff again you would never have known which eased my embarrassment at the time.So if you like attention to detail from staff who show excellent customer care then this is the place for you
We were sorry to leave and would like to express thanks to all for making our weekend special from start to finish.

Wow, what a gorgeous hotel. My friend and I stayed in one of the apartments. There was a huge amount of space for us, and it was so nice to chill out in the living room/kitchen after exploring the city. The location is fantastic, so easy to walk into the shops and tourist attractions while still being in a quiet and pretty street. Staff couldn't be more helpful, and put up a fold-down bed for us when we didn't want to share a double! If I can afford it again I'll be back! Just one tip - if you need to take a car, phone in advance to sort out a parking space as parking is limited. However, it's so close to the train station and city, it was easy to do without.

Thank you to all involved for an excellent stay. The staff were efficient and very polite and not at all "in you face"... just the right balance we thought. The suite was as described and although nearing the top end in cost, good value. One little problem very quickly resolved... things do go wrong after all. Ideal spot for a special occasion.

Just leaving after having spent a wonderful weekend at the chester residence. All of the high praises for the establishment are spot on. Staff could not have been more helpful. Anna at the front desk is an all star. She was phenomenal at responding to e-mails and helping with travel arrangements. The residence we stayed in was wonderful and just as the pictures portrayed. Everything was clean and well kept.
Wish we could have stayed longer.

As this was a surprise weekend away booked for my birthday i had no idea what to expect but from the second we pulled up to the chester residence i was thoroughly impressed, from the exterior of beautiful townhouses to the sleek modern decor inside, it was perfect. At check in the staff wished me a happy birthday which was a nice touch and showed us to our first room which we stayed in on the Friday, the penthouse. with a double ended bath, a huge walk in shower, fab kitchen and living space i was more than happy. the Saturday we moved rooms and upgraded to the owners residence which was absolutely out of this world, amazing! Large kitchen and living area, Jacuzzi, separate wet room, and a Cinema room made our stay very special. Your breakfast is delivered to your room in the morning after you request the time, nice choice of food although their are no cooked options. my only tiny complaint was that my breakfast didn't arrive on our last morning, due to the wrong breakfast coming in the first place, which they took back but failed to deliver my original option. but this did not have a great impact on my stay and the staff were apologetic and knocked this off the bill.

Location was perfect for us, located on a quiet street, a five minute walk to the main shopping area, restaurants and bars which gave us the best of both worlds. quiet rooms at night as away from all the hustle and bustle at night but close enough to walk to everything if we wanted

Without a doubt i would stay here again and will be recommending it to friends and family who visit Edinburgh. i only wish we could have stayed another couple of nights, Perfect!
