Expert review of The Chester Residence

A luxury collection of apartments spread across five Georgian townhouses.

The Chester Residence is like having your own high class apartment in Edinburgh. There are 19 apartments with the added bonus of having everything associated with a luxury hotel, including in-house dining, full reception and a concierge service.

Personal service is what this is all about and proprietors Graham and Gillian Wood provide top class attention to detail so residents are very well looked after. Whilst booking you will be asked any number of questions to ensure that everything is just how you like it when you arrive. Questions will range from  the type of pillow you prefer to your own personalised iPod playlist. Nothing is left to chance.

Location: 

In the leafy West End. Quiet and tranquil, yet minutes from the West End shops, restaurants and bars.

Bedrooms: 

Extremely well thought out with everything from your luxury robe to all the latest gadgetry: flat sceen TV, DVD/CD, surround system and loaded iPod with docking station. There's also free WiFi. The three mews apartments have barbecues provided in their gardens for the few days a year it's warm enough.
