“Pure luxury”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

Just back from a one night stay at the chester residence and wow what can I say. Upon arrival staff were very courteous and friendly doing everything they could to make us feel welcome. Having learned it was our anniversary they upgraded us to the owners suite which was everything we could have hoped for and more! With a massive jacuzzi bath, ensuite rainfall shower, private cinema it really was absolute luxury and made our anniversary one to remember. Could not fault the chester residence on anything at all and we will definitely be returning in the near future.

I booked a night at The Chester Residence for my partners birthday, from start to finish it was fabulous! It is in a great central location, literally 5 minutes walk to Princes street and also in close proximity to Haymarket station. Upon arrival we were met by a man in a kilt, a lovely touch! The bags were taken to the room whilst we checked in. Eventhough we were hours early the room was all ready for us which was a bonus! Upon learning it was my partners birthday the staff sent round two glassed of bubbly and a birthday card!
The apartment was absolutely gorgeous and spotless, finished to a really high standard as is the rest of the building.
The kitchen has everything you need if you fancy a night in and also there is a large collection of dvds at reception which you can choose from! Really could not fault it in anyway and can't wait to go back!

We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment. Both bedrooms were an excellent size, both with walk in shower en-suites. Apartment finished to a high standard. Free and fast wifi throughout apartment. Full Sky TV package. Very good sized kitchen/lounge area + apartment had small garden area as well. Staff were very attentive and polite. Only 10 minute walk from west end of Princes Street.

We loved this luxury home from home in a great location, walking distance to the castle and shopping areas etc. The penthouse one bedroom apartment was huge and I loved the decor. Big comfy bed, huge shower and Molton Brown toiletries all added to the enjoyment of this very relaxing break.The staff were very friendly and helpful in giving us restaurant recommendations and booking our taxis to the airport. Fresh milk in the fridge was very nice and the yogurt/granola breakfast was perfect for what we wanted. Loads of DVD'S to borrow too if you fancy chilling out. Book now, you won't be disappointed. We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith and got a bottle of wine on arrival.

The Chester Residence that we stayed in was a spacious apartment with two bedrooms, two ensuites, bathroom with a large kitchen/lounge/dining area. All modern conveniences were provided, this coupled with the space made it a very comfortable environment for my one year old niece, her parents, my pregnant wife and I. The staff were extremely cordial without being over the top. We stayed for one night and would certainly return.

I can't rate The Chester Residence highly enough. I stayed with my girlfriend for a weekend and it was perfect. Our apartment was lovely. With 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms a lounge and kitchen, we didn't know where to begin. Everything was spotless and the staff were lovely and attentive. Thank you. We will definitely return.

The Chester Residence is beautifully decorated to a very high contemporary standard. We stayed in a 2 bedroom in the basement which didn't feel like a basement flat at all which was so spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and there were thoughtful touches when we arrived like Nespresso capsules for the machine, tea bags, as well as fresh milk & bottled still & sparkling water in the fridge - very thoughtful for the weary traveller just arriving. We also moved to one bedroom after my husband and son left and the one bedroom was equally comfortable and as well equipped. Kitchen was much smaller though and didn't have a freezer and the bedroom was slightly smaller but the lounge was HUGE. As big as the one in the two bedroom. The service here is top notch. They're efficient, warm, welcoming and friendly. The location of the property is not right in the centre of the city but it's not a huge inconvenience. The one big negative is the car park which is pretty awful and quite expensive (£25/day given the state it is in. It's a car park for 3 cars about a 5 minute walk away. It's very tight and not easy to reverse into especially when there are 2 other cars already there. It is badly lit, creepy and difficult to get out of as well. I ended up not using it after the first day. Shame that a set up that is so good is let down by this awful car park.
