Travellers' Choice
The Edinburgh Residence is a collection of 29 elegant suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh. Categorized as ‘Classic’, ’Grand’ and ‘Townhouse’, the suites are more like apartments, with magnificent proportions that really allow you to spread out and make yourself at home. In some, the sitting rooms are adjoining, and in others they are self-contained.

The staff treated us like royalty. the continental style breakfast in the room was excellent. CoVid was just about to start and the hotel was quiet. Stayed here for my wife's 50th birthday. The manager upgraded our room to the marvellous Town House Suite and my wife even got a card from the hotel, with afternoon tea... a really nice touch. Our son booked the room as he has stayed here before - a recommendation in itself. Would we go again - in a heart beat, yes we would

Enjoyed our week in Edinburgh, but found the partial kitchen inconvenient. Although this is a luxury hotel there was no restaurant - any food ordered was delivered to the room. (We were also unlucky that the refurbishment works were just starting and we were woken by scaffolders working directly outside the window.) However the Residence was full of elegance, beautifully furnished, and all the staff were helpful and friendly. We look forward to a return visit (after the building work is completed!)

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel, we thought our room last time was impressive, but suite five is beyond words!! We had our toddler with us for this visit and the rooms are so big I could t find the cot when we first arrived! Like everyone, the cooked breakfast was a miss, but the room service continental breakfast was still superb and would not put us off coming. Fantastic customer service from everyone we came into contact with - would return immediately

Our Townhouse suites are our largest category of room that we have to offer, we also have Grand Suites and Classic Suites which are equally as lovely and spacious. I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again. Perhaps you would like to see the Edinburgh Fringe Festival? Kind regards, Max Heidrich Resort Operations Manager

We stayed here some time ago, and had no hestitation in booking it again for our visit to Edinburgh. It really is a beautiful place to stay; the rooms are lovely as are the common areas. Everywhere is very clean and well kept. The first time we came here, we had a suite which was huge, with two bathrooms, a full sized dining table, and two TVs! This time we had a 'normal' room, which although, as expected, was smaller, was still a lovely size, with a big bed, a couch, and a small table with chairs. There is a fridge and microwave in the room as well as crockery and cutlery, so you can eat in if you just need to heat your food. You can order meals to eat in your room (breakfast and dinner) which comes from the sister hotel nearby. The bathroom was gorgeous, with a bath and separate shower. The service was absolutely super - friendly and efficient. It's a wee bit of a walk from Princes street, but we enjoyed being slightly out of the city centre. Very grand for a reasonable price.

Dear jhngllrd, Thank you for the lovely review of The Edinburgh Residence. Each year a selection of rooms are refurbished to ensure that each room is fresh, nicely decorated and comfortable for our guests. I am pleased to hear that the hard work pays off and that you were very happy with your suite. Having breakfast served in your suite is certainly a perk. It gives you a little extra time in the morning to relax before a big day of exploring. I hope you enjoyed your stay with us and perhaps we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon! Kind regards, Max Heidrich Resort Operations Manager
