The Chester Residence
Good business...bad weather
These apartments and their location are awesome. Service was excellent! Sorry that I only found out about this place after visiting Edinburgh a few times before. Thank you also for accommodating me for an extra day because of the “Red Alert” weather.

Great Stay
We really liked this place. It was a last minute find and a good one. Very clean and comfortable, great location. We were led into the basement unit and I was skeptical at first, but we had our own private little garden terrace. We flew in very early a.m. to Scotland and were exhausted and they allowed us to check in early, which we deeply appreciated. The unit was way bigger than we anticipated and very comfortable for 2 ppl. Highly recommend and if we ever get back to the area will definitely stay there.

Basically excellent
Really comfortable big bed with lovely linens, very good and well equipped kitchen with proper oven, grill and fridge freezer and Sky TV. Great location and the staff were excellent from their welcome right the way through. Bathroom is high spec with good water flow in shower. Wi-Fi is good.

The Chester Residence
Wonderful home from home.
If you want a little more privacy and room that a 5* hotel offers, this is a wonderful home from home. Have already booked our next stay - say no more!
