The Edinburgh Residence
Travel Blogs from Edinburgh
We have spent a few days in Edinburgh and have enjoyed the historical sights of the city, the pubs and palaces, afternoon tea and wonderful evening meals with our Australian mates, Neil and Jane. The castle - military tatoo is at the heart of the city high on a bluff and The Royal Mile is a cobblestone street lined with shops, eateries, historic …
... architecture, welcoming residents, and not to mention the most adorable cafes I have ever seen!
My family and I live on a small street in the city centre surrounded by boutiques, gardens, and most importantly (for my dad) pubs with their endless supply of football matches. There is a park over by our house where we can walk our french bulldog, Sarge, who has a fun ...

The church was built in or around 1124 by Dodin, a Norman knight. The entrance to the kirkyard from Duddingston village is notable for its gatehouse, built as a lookout point to deter “bodysnatchers” in the early 19th century. The Edinburgh bodysnatchers, known as "resurrectionists," stole recently buried corpses to sell to anatomists.

... sat on the top of the bus and had a good tour of the city. The guide was a walking encyclopedia about Scotland and we learned a lot about the city. This was fun and a great way for us to figure out what we want to take our time tomorrow and tour further. We are planning on touring the castle tomorrow and maybe the whiskey distillery. Having a blast and the adventure never ends for us. Check back for more things we uncover in the great land of ...
... to meet up with Kelly and her bf, Erich on this "hill". Well, instead, Kelly and Erich were at the top while we were on the wrong side of this mountain. I felt like I was in Lord of The Rings; struggling over these mountains. Plus, I only brought flats which was the dumbest decision ever and I ended up looking like an orphan climbing up this MOUNTAIN in barefeet. (Its not mountain but its pretty steep large hill.) After 45 minutes of struggling, we made it to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Edinburgh Residence
Cannot Fault - best place I've ever stayed in UK
Completely agree with all the previous comments. Stayed for only 2 nights in a Classic Suite and wish it could have been longer. Scottish breakfast served in room and jacuzzi bath - both nice touches. Great place for a relaxing break.
A wonderful hotel for a relaxing break
We have just returned from a long weekend break at The Edinburgh Residence and had a wonderful time. We were lucky enough to have a townhouse suite which was huge and beautifully comfortable. The staff were friendly and the service was great. We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible.
A true home away from home. Mature guests, a pleasing staff, and huge, immaculate living quarters in this fantastic city. Simply can't be beat. The bathrooms are gorgeous, the views are lovely. It is so quiet at night, you will sleep like a baby! A huge YES.
The perfect city retreat
A real retreat in the heart of Edinburgh. The hotel is located on a beautiful street, in a very upmarket area of Edinburgh and most importantly a peaceful street, but only 10 mins walk into the city centre.
Our Suite was wonderful, so much space. Beautiful furnishings and fittings. We stayed in suite 12 which had a sitting room, a lovely bedroom and a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath for two! Pure bliss
Wow--a true five star experience! Where to start? The Edinburgh Residence is situated in the quiet and calm west side of Edinburgh, nestled in with a row of what appears to be townhouses.
Everything as it should be!
We have stayed at the residence 4 times now both as a couple and with our son.
The space available, quality of finishes and service is excellent. Worthy of recommendation without doubt.
Me and my fiance stayed at the Edinburgh Residence for a long weekend last March. It was an absolutely astounding hotel. I was a little apprehensive about staying in a 5*, but the staff were fantastic. Excellent service and really made us feel a ease.
This hotel was like no other, when we walked in we felt like we were in a Murder Mystery Style Mansion or a Haunted House, the historic feel is great and certainly not like anything you would have seen before. It is set away on a quite street with greaty views but it is close to the Main shopping, eating and bars of Edinburgh (A 10-15 minute walk or between ?3.00-?4.00 in a black cab)The staff were very friendly and catered to all our needs and questions. We stayed in a classic style suite, it was very nice and spacious (there were 3 of us) The master bed was lovely, extremely high and princess like! The bathroom was amazing with a great power shower and a very deep jacuzzi (spa) bath.I could not fault this hotel at all, it was very very nice and I look forward to staying there again.
Best accommodation ever experienced
This is an excellent hotel sporting some fantastic in room features. Excellent views from mkost rooms and the staff and service are second to none. Front of house staff all have an excellent knowledge of the city and its amenities and will be happy to recommend and arrange outings to eateries around the capital.
This is a wonderful hotel. Its owned by the same group that owns The Bonham and Channings. Our room was enormous (even by U.S. standards) and nicely decorated with very high ceilings and a beautiful bay window facing a quiet street. The bathrooms were also very large with a shower (had great water pressure) and bathtub. Breakfast was included in our price and everything with the exception of the potato scone was good.
We arrived early on the last day of the Edinburgh festival and were happy to find our room ready. The staff was efficient and accomodating.
We emailed the staff directly for reservations and were given a rate (with breakfast and VAT) below any other special on the internet. We recommend this hotel very highly and look forward to staying there again.
