A great balance between a fine hotel and a private apartment. Huge, spacious rooms, beautifully decorated. All the mod cons, really well done bathrooms ( radiant floor heating - a treat in chilly Edinburgh! ), and fully equipped kitchen. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

It is almost impossible to fault the Chester Residence.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
