“Loved The Chester Residence”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Amazing stay at The Chester Residence. Loved the homey yet very luxurious feel. Everything we needed from taxi transfers to in-room breakfast, the stay at Chester Residence was a real treat. I love the West End of Edinburgh & highly recommend. Location is great and an easy walking distance to Old/ New towns & great bars and restaurants.

The location is excellent, walking distance from everything yet really quiet in a beautiful area. The apartment was amazing, surprisingly spacious, the living room was beautiful yet homely. All rooms were well decorated with everything you could need. The bath and shower were fantastic post marathon and rain! The garden was an added bonus.

The staff were really helpful, I can't fault it and am really excited to return soon!

We tried the Chester Residence 2 years ago as an alternative to staying at a hotel or B&B, and it was a brilliant discovery. There is no other place we'd rather stay when in town. We stayed there again when we were "stuck" in town an extra night due to a cancelled flight. The apartments are large and spacious with modern amenities. We had a kitchen and dining room/living room and once, a private little garden. The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. Although this is a perfect option for friends or families traveling together who want to eat in and make their own meals, we always ate out and just enjoyed the extra space and the quiet and upscale neighborhood, a 15 minute walk from the major attractions (or a 5 minute taxi from just about anything). Definitely a find!

We stayed during the easter bank holiday at the annex ( 5 mins from main hotel)which had a private garden courtyard. The location is circa 15 min or so walk from George street( nice bars there) and rose street( nice pubs) in new town. A very pretty residence , well equipped kitchen and a great couples sanctuary. The only slight negative was we had quite a few problems with the wifi ( which we were reliant on for our holiday) which extended for a few days .

I stayed here with my wife on our honeymoon this past week. It was an amazing experience. I would highly recommend this property as one of the most comfortable and well managed I have been in. I was upgraded to the penthouse upon arrival, and was very impressed with the full kitchen, separate bedroom, and amazing bathroom with a huge two person bath as well as a shower. The staff were great and answered every one of our questions. They even brought up a take out menu when we had a hankering for pizza late at night. When we ordered, they paid the driver at reception and brought up the pizza themselves! First rate service for sure. Despite being downtown parking was easy and we got a place right out front.

If you don't mind staying somewhere a bit more expensive and you want the freedom to cook for yourself, but can't stand the thought of not being able to call reception for assistance this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Higher floors mean more stairs. Not a problem if you are young and fit, but if you don't like s...

I booked Chester on a whim a couple of months ago after seeing a high rating. I must say it is the best serviced apartment I have stayed in, tons of space, a garden with this flat which was a bonus as every day was sunny and right at the heart of Edinburgh. The staff could not have done more to make our stay better, they were smart, super attentive and very easy to talk too.
