“A wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We spent four nights in this hotel. What a great experience! Lovely building. We had the suite 30. Absolutely perfect, warm and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant, so small that you think you are in a private dining room. Very good food. Breakfast in the room, which I don't particularly like, but we had a big dining table so it was not a problem. Very nice and helpful staff. The car park was very useful.
We had to go back to Edinburgh after some nights in the countryside. As we did not know the place when we had booked, we took another hotel for our second stay. It was good but nothing to compare and it was more expensive! So, yes, the Edinburgh Residence is THE hotel we will go back to.
The location is also very good, not far from the centre. The only problem was the road works. We had some trouble to reach the hotel in the first place. Luckily, our GPS found the way around it.

Room Tip: The suites are wonderful. No idea about the smaller rooms but I think they should be quite nice too...

Dear jackyHongKong,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review The Edinburgh Residence on TripAdvisor after your recent, and from your review, very pleasant stay with us.

The Edinburgh Residence is housed in three beautiful Victorian Townhouses, originally built in the early 1890’s. The property has been tastefully restored and maintains many beautiful original period features, such as fire places, wood panelling and ornate period ceilings.

Our freshly prepared breakfast is served in the comfort and privacy of your suite. Next time you stay with us however, should you prefer to have breakfast in our restaurant please tell a member of our team and we will be happy to arrange this for you.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and would choose to stay with us again should you return to discover more of Edinburgh. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

Best Wishes,

Celia Hague
Resort Manager

The Residence is a stylish , quiet haven in Edinburgh's West End.
The size of rooms, quality of fittings and understated elegance are complemented by very high standards of service and cleanliness.
There is free car parking , a bonus in the city, but there is little need for a car as so much is within easy strolling distance, including Galleries, shops bars, restaurants, the Waters of Leith footpath, or a bus if you want to go to the Old Town.

Dear Juliana1,

To have one of our guests describe The Edinburgh Residence as a “stylish, quiet haven” with “very high standards of service and cleanliness” is truly wonderful. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us.

As you mentioned, unlike many city centre hotels in Edinburgh, we have a car park free for guests. We also offer a complimentary valet parking service, so you can start to relax from the moment you step out of your car and we will bring your luggage to your Suite.

Thank you Juliana1 for taking the time to review The Edinburgh Residence on TripAdvisor. Your comments are very much appreciated.

We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back.

Warm Regards,

Celia Hague

I recently stayed at the Edinburgh residence with my boyfriend for a little break. We stayed in suite 9, which is a classic suite. It was very spacious with a big bed, couch and table and chairs by the window which offered a very nice view. The bathroom had a spa bath with separate shower, and lots of lovely toiletries. We were very impressed with the room and the service offered by the staff. When we requested more bubble bath it was delivered to our room in minutes. We filled in the breakfast cards for the next morning. There was lots of choice and no extra charge for room service. Breakfast was slightly late, and the toast was cold, but it was mostly delicious, and the porter was apologetic. We got to keep the room until 12 instead of 11 with no extra charge. I think there was refurbishment going on in the hotel when we were staying but we weren't disturbed at all and found our stay very peaceful. I would definitely go back to the Edinburgh Residence and would recommend it. When booking I'd suggest you ask for a room with a spa bath, it was a very luxurious touch.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to recommend The Edinburgh Residence on TripAdvisor, it sounds like you enjoyed a very relaxing stay with us, which is great to hear.

A number of our Suites feature spa baths or free standing roll top baths, this combined with complimentary The White Company toiletries adds a bit of luxury to a weekend stay in Edinburgh.

As part of our commitment to maintaining and improving the high standards of The Edinburgh Residence, we have recently undertaken to refurbish our Public Areas, including our Drawing Room, which is where we serve our Afternoon Tea. I am pleased to hear your stay was not impacted by the works and I hope you will have the opportunity to return to see the newly refurbished areas.

Thank you again for your comments.

Kind Regards,

Celia Hague

It is not cheap to book a room here but certainly worth the money. The basic rooms are large and like a studio apartment with a comfortable sofa and armchair and a small table for in-room dining. The bathroom has a large spa bath as well as a separate shower.
Although not in the centre of Edinburgh it is only a 10 minute walk to get there.
