Christmas market overnight stay
Came to see the Christmas market. Hotel & room were really nice, continental breakfast was huge, bathroom & room facilities excellent. In room bar & hamper quite expensive so didn’t bother, but overall, really nice.

Loved it!
Had a wonderful stay here. Service was exceptional and the room was beautiful. Breakfast was great and princes st was about a 15 minute walk at most. I’ll definitely be back here again next time in edinburgh.

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely hotel with excellent rooms and service
The hotel is formed from three townhouses in a lovely part of Edinburgh's west end. Excellent, spacious room and bathroom with jacuzzi type bath. The room was warm, comfortable and well-equipped, with coffee machine, kettle, fridge and microwave. Plentiful continental breakfast with good choice was included in our rate. It was served in our room, as the hotel has no restaurant. That's no problem as there are plenty good standard restaurants within walking distance. We shall return here.

What a find!
Fantastic accommodation - suite was so roomy and beautifully furnished. Real luxury :) Having a sumptuous and plentiful breakfast served in the room was a great touch too. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, and gave great tips on places that we would have missed.

Claudia, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Really wonderful accommodation. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, very friendly service. Afternoon tea was a bit disappointing in terms of portions and quality but that is literally the only gripe we can make over an entire long weekend. Highly recommend, just skip the tea (or head elsehwere)

Very good 8.0
Very comfortable West End suite
Extremely comfortable suite, very good breakfast brought to the room, very spacious. Extremely quiet and convenient for the West End and EICC. The room was far too hot - but it was possible to open the window for a draught - but not ideal.
James, gb2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Comfort and style
The Residence was comfortable and clean. Easily the best rooms we have stayed in when travelling in the UK. We thought they were value for money and will stay there again if we get back to Edinburgh.
