Grand and majestic, The Edinburgh Residence isn’t your average boutique hotel. Built in the 19th-century, it belonged to the Lord Advocate for Scotland which perhaps explains the elegance of the place. Dark wood panelling, magnificent staircases and intricately carved furnishings are just part of the traditional décor, maintaining the refined atmosphere that has prevailed over the centuries.
Despite its period feel, you’re not short of your present-day comforts at The Edinburgh Residence. The 29 suites feature modern facilities, staff are charming and in-room dining ensures you’re well looked after. Located in Edinburgh’s West End, the hotel is within easy reach of the key sights.
A cooked-to-order breakfast is served in the mornings and a range of drinks are available in the drawing room throughout the day. An in-room menu is also available for lunch and dinner, with meals that change regularly according to seasonal ingredients. If you’re travelling with the little ones, a children’s menu is also available. For those who wish to cook for themselves, most rooms feature very light kitchen facilities, however you may wish to head out for something heavier.
There are 29 suites at The Edinburgh Residence, which are spread across three conjoined townhouses. Décor is traditional, with patterned wallpapers, dark woods and fine fabrics creating a characterful Georgian feel. Bathrooms are spotless and come with the added treat of luxe toiletries. Most rooms have light kitchen facilities should you wish to prepare your own food during your stay.
There’s plenty to do and see around Scotland’s prized capital, be it browsing Prince Street’s plethora of shops or learning of bygone days at the Edinburgh Castle. Prince’s Street is within skipping distance of the hotel, Holyrood Palace is definitely worth a visit and the Royal Mile is filled with local shops and hole-in-the-wall cafés.
