Gleneagles Hotel
The Edinburgh Residence
Edinburgh

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 since 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 we 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.
