The Edinburgh Residence, a 5 star residence hotel, is a collection of 29 elegant suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh.
Categorised as classic, grand and townhouse, the 5 star 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 Edinburgh Residence feels more like a club than a hotel, especially as many guests return for a week each year. It offers 24 hour room service and all the housekeeping, porter, concierge and reception services you would associate with a 5 star hotel; but rooms also include microwaves, cutlery and extended minibars in the rooms, to encourage in room dining. This makes the suites especially workable for families or anyone staying in Edinburgh for an extended period.
The residence has cultivated an antique chic look at the Edinburgh Residence suites, which suits the personality of the building: original oak doors remain, and traditional period furnishings and etchings, prints, oils and botanical prints have been used throughout the residence.
Recently added is outside catering for Edinburgh service, offering an alternative to traditional outside catering from boardroom entertainment, buffets, office lunches and canapé receptions.
Afternoon tea and drinks are served in the grand drawing room, and guests come here at all times of the day to relax and enjoy a slight retreat from the fast pace of Edinburgh life; they are also quite welcome to invite friends in.
