Fantastic place to stay in Edinburgh
Reviewed 2 days ago

Just spent one night in a two bedroom Club Apartment and wished we were staying for longer. Great location, modern, clean apartment, friendly, helpful reception staff and a delicious continental breakfast delivered to the room - the Brie was to die for!
Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent stay
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My boyfriend and had a weekend away, we had the pleasure of staying at The Chester Residence. Our stay was fantastic, the lady at reception was lovely and gave us great recommendations of what we could do whilst in the city. The penthouse apartment was wonderful; my favourite room being the bathroom with a powerful shower and luxurious bath. The kitchen and living room were also fantastic, great interior throughout.

My only drawback from staying again would be the location, although the area was extremely nice the walking distance to the train station/bars/ restaurants was around 30 minutes.

Absolutely Fantastic 2 Night Stay!

Myself and my husband stayed here for our anniversary for 2 nights in February 2019. We had the penthouse and wow!

The area is quiet but also close enough to be able to walk straight into the centre of Edinburgh.

The accommodation is fantastic. Clean and spacious. They have thought of everything, kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need to cook a meal, a Nespresso machine with pods included, oven, dishwasher, microwave, kettle etc. We were also left a card and macaroons as we were celebrating our anniversary the day we arrived.

There were 3 TVs in the apartment and they are all linked so you can watch any Sky tv channel in either the living room, bathroom or bedroom - a good touch which we've never had before in other hotels. There is also a DVD library you can borrow from.

The bed was incredibly comfortable, we both slept better than we have in a long time! Very quiet and the blackout curtains enabled us to sleep late!

We ordered breakfast to the room both mornings, choice was fine and arrived at the requested time.

Plenty of towels, the bathrobe and slippers were a bonus. The toiletries are Molton Brown which is a plus!

Nothing negative to say really, we wished we were staying longer!

We hope to be back to stay again soon!

Fabulous

The apartments were immaculately clean, modern and the beds were super comfy. The staff were incredibly attentive and polite. The bar is a great facility and the Tunnocks tea cakes on the reception were a lovely touch. A lovely area too. Highly recommended.

Total luxury

We stayed the night in the owners residence and were completely blown away.

Beautiful decor, Molton brown toiletries, jacuzzi bath, cinema room and a super comfortable bed.

Breakfast was truly superb, delivered on time and great value for money.

All the staff were only too happy to help and were great at recommending places to visit, restaurants for dinner and the most secret cocktail bar we have ever been in.

We can’t wait to visit again and cannot recommend highly enough
