    Everything - simply put this hotel deserves every accolade it receives. The staff, the building, the rooms and the management are all the benchmark for the rest of the industry. You are treated as a guest and not a customer.

    The Chester Residence really lives up to the hype, i stayed at Chester street in the Garden apartment, it has just been fully renovated and really is beautiful. Quality finish, great decoration , and the extra touches make a difference ( drinks on arrival for no other reason apart from thats what 5 star should be) Top marks to the staff i met, Neil the concierge , Anna and Katie R(There are 3 Katie's) and had the pleasure of having a coffee with the GM upon leaving. A great hotel with the awards to prove it.

    Excellent apartment with huge lounge and bedroom. Enough items in the fridge to make a light breakfast which was a nice touch. Also nice to get a cafetiere and fresh ground coffee rather than the usual freeze dried stuff! Staff very friendly and helpful. Located within 10 min stroll of Princes Street so great location too. Overall highly recommended.

    Absolutely fabulous! I've never filled in one of these feedback forms before but this place was so good I felt I had to. Stayed here with my partner and parents and the apartment exceeded our expectations and requirements.The extra touches like the expresso maker, Sky Plus HD, surround sound throughout the apartment, and the umbrellas by the front door, all served to make our stay extra special. The staff were excellent too, friendly, attentive, efficient and available at all times to put right even the smallest problem. Great value for money too, no way could you get a hotel of this calibre for the price in Edinburgh.

    I cannot fault it.

    The Chester Residence though not cheap was good value for money. You could easily pay as much for an ensuite room in a hotel and with the Chester Residence you got a whole apartment. The rooms were well spec-ed and very relaxing. The staff were warm, friendly and courteous. I even got upgraded to a better apartment, for the same price! I will definately book again if i want a luxury weekend in Edinburgh.
