Getaway

The hotel was ok, staff were helpful. The room could have been a lot cleaner, the glass lamp shade was coated in dust and the maid didn't Hoover the carpet where I had dropped a packet of crisps. The location was poor although described central. There were THREE strip bars at the end of the street which we had to walk pass every time we left the appartment and every time we did were jaunted at by the men outside. They made rude and sexists remarks to my friend and myself which left us very upset and scared to leave the appartment at night. I am only glad that I didn't take my children to this appartment to be exposed to this. We were not made aware of this on booking and feel we should have been. It felt like we were staying in the red light district! This has been my only holiday this year and i have been saving up for a long time to go and I am very disappointed. Your comments would be appreciated. Regards

Great place, staff most helpful.

Once you figure out driving in Edinburgh and how to get to the secured parking, the Knight Residence is very convenient to most of the inner city. Apartments are clean and spacious. Excellent connections via wireless and staff is very friendly and helpful. If you like golf, within short walking distance to Bruntsfield pitch and putt course. Libation after at the Golf Tavern is a must.
