“three nights at the Chester”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Just the loveliest place. A smart, stylish, clean, well maintained spacious apartment in one of the best locations in the city. Cant fault the place with great staff who genuinely care for your care. If you want to stay in Edinburgh ( which is just the best) stay here. More like having you own wonderful home than being in a hotel and always returning to find it clean, warm and safe.An absolutely great place and a fantastic city to be in in. Thank you

This was a perfect choice for a mini moon. We chose 'Owners Residence' as it was a one off. It was just as expected and ideal for us to unwind and relax. Good location for strolling in to Edinburgh. Jaquzzi room was amazing, and so was the cinema room. This was a real treat. Would love to return. Thank you.

The only small niggle would be the fact that we chose this place based on the TA reviews, and wanted something special. The reviews inevitably make you expect extra surprises for honeymoons/birthdays, such as a free glass of champagne etc on arrival. Apart from that small disappointment, this was an excellent choice.

Had an absolute blast staying at The Chester Residence. From the moment of arrival to check out it has been brilliant. The staff are very attentive, (especially Paul), nothing is to much for them and they offer great advice about the local attractions and using public transport. The apartment was beautiful - a great place to stay whilst visiting Edinburgh, located in the West End it is ideal - it is close enough to walk to all the main attractions yet set on a safe, quiet street. The apartment is fitted with all amenities, very modern and classy- loved the shower and bath. It is decorated to a high standard with no expense spared, Sky Tv, surround sound - three tvs! The cleaning staff were excellent, we returned to the apartment after a long day out and it was spotless.
We only stayed for two nights but wish it had been more.

I would not hesitate recommending The Chester Residence to anyone, I can't wait to return. Thank you for a relaxing break.

We have just returned from a stay at the Chester Residence. We are a family of four (2 adults, teenager and child) and stayed in the top floor apartment on Chester Street. The apartment was perfect for us, stylish and well designed with plenty of useful features. It was quiet at night, but within walking distance of good restaurants, shopping, sights etc. We ordered in breakfast which was tasty and delivered at the time requested. All the staff we encountered were extremely welcoming and friendly. I would not hesitate to stay here again, as it made the trip special for us.

Beautiful apartment, sumptuously furnished and appointed. Everything we could have asked for and more. The view of the castle and surrounding area was a bonus as were the complimentary canapes and cocktails we were invited to enjoy for Valentine's day. The extra touches in the room also added to how special the Chester residence made our stay...

First of all let me say Chester residence has everything a visitor could hope for, it really is an outstanding property, do not have any qualms about staying here! Now let me get the negativities off my chest. Having read all the reviews before our arrival and seeing the #1 rating on tripadvisor, my husband and I were really expecting something out-of-this-world. We couldn't help but feel slightly underwhelmed when we left!
First of all, I contacted the hotel to arrange one of their packages before arrival. To be fair I did leave it til the day before check-in but surely a hotel such as this should have someone manning an inbox at every hour of the day? A reply to my email wasn't given until after we had checked in, too late and defeated the purpose of the surprise. Luckily I had a take-it-or-leave-it attitude regarding this so wasn't too bothered but, fantastic service, really? Didn't blow my hair back.
Secondly, the surround sound of the room was broken, this was conveniently ommitted from the welcome tour. After scratching our heads for a while trying to figure it out a phone call to reception confirmed this. Our reply; 'yes sir it's broken, we're waiting on an electrician to fix it', no offer of a change of room or compensation. This is the best hotel in Edinburgh why should we have to ask?
Thirdly, we had to chase up our breakfast in the morning. I'm willing to take some responsibility for this as we forgot to write our room number on the sheet before we hung it on the door, but again, a great, take care of everything attitude? I don't feel this way, sorry Chester Residence.
Perhaps my disappointment is based on unrealistic expectations drawn on reading flawless reviews and seeing award after award for Chester residence. Perhaps it's the double-edged sword that comes with such accolades, but I couldn't help leaving a little deflated.
Well done Chester residence on an exceptional product, but don't get too complacent with that prestigious #1 spot.
