there is one major downside to a stay at the Chester Residence and that is having to leave!!!Really didn't want to go it was so great. The staff were fantastic, accommodation amazing, lovely breakfast delivered, great bar and super location! Would go back in a flash.

From arrival to departure, the staff were very attentive. The apartment was very well equipped and all within easy walking distance of all of the sights of Edinburgh. Parking was around the corner and although there were only three spaces, you were informed in advance.

Room Tip: Pre-book your parking.

We were recently visiting Edinburgh for our honeymoon and treated ourselves to a few nights at the Chester Residence. Given that we were there on a special occassion our expectations were high and it didn't disappoint. Arriving into Edinburgh by train we walked to our destination to take in the views and feel of the city. From Waverley, and not being entirely sure where we were going, this took us around 20 minutes at a slow-steady pace. On arrival we were warmly greeted and our bags taken from us as we checked in. We were then shown to our room which looked magnificent with some lovely views outside. Any extras we ordered such as breakfast or turn down service were all done smoothly and efficiently by friendly staff members. A genuine feeling of nothing being too much trouble was clearly evident from all staff. During our stay we enjoyed a drink in the bar with my wife sampling a cocktail (which she was very happy with). Everything really was excellent and I pause in my mind before listing a couple of very minor points which may further enhance the experience for future visitors. Lighting in the bedroom was mood lighting which was great most of the time but more lighting would perhaps be good if using the bedroom to prepare clothes etc. Also on the bedroom front, the position of the smoke alarm or sensor on the ceiling bizarrely didn't allow one of the wardrobe doors to open fully! The only other point which we informed the staff on leaving was a small leaking problem from the bath and one of the sinks when the water was let out of them. None of these points adversely affected us and are genuinely nit-picking rather than issues. We would gladly stay here again and cannot recommend the Chester Residence enough. Well worth every penny :)

Room Tip: Treat yourself to breakfast - the cheese and smoked salmon were amazing!

We have just spent a night in the Chester Residence combining a business trip and my birthday and we have just experienced the most wonderful accommodation and service. Right from the initial booking to check out it can only be described as world class . We stayed in the Owner Residence and have both travelled extensively staying in many 5 star and exclusive resorts .....and the Chester is up there with the best , and possibly even the best !.

Such a pleasure to find this experience in your own country....so to Anna and all the staff many many thanks and hope to see you again soon.

I booked this hoping it would live up to TripAdvisor reviews as I wanted to surprise my girlfriend with a quiet proposal. Obviously wanting to check it was a beautiful apartment first. It lived up to the reviews and was the perfect location.
Needless to say, highly recommended!

An evening of good food and cocktails kicked off well upon arrival at the Chester Residence. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Apartment was out of this world throughout. It had everything and more. Decor, stylish and chic. Great stay.

This was booked as a birthday weekend away for myself and my husband and we were totally delighted at the apartment and the excellent service we received. The concierge who showed us to our apartment - I think his name was Alastair - was extremely courteous and very helpful and this was a great first impression for what was to be a lovely stay in splendid facilities. (The only fly in the ointment was the choice language unfortunately used by the member of staff serving behind the bar and I would have liked a few more canapés when we went for the complimentary cocktails and canapés on Saturday evening as 3 between the two of us wasn't really adequate!!)
