About The Knight Residence

All the thoughtful extras provided, together with the spacious apartments and excellent concierge service makes The Knight Residence the perfect choice for families wanting to visit Edinburgh.

If you’re looking for a family friendly hotel in Edinburgh that is handy for all the great Edinburgh landmarks and visitor attractions but also would prefer spacious accommodation that is fully equipped with all the comforts of a home from home, then we have the ideal choice for you. The Knight Residence are serviced apartments complete with all the luxury of a hotel and is conveniently located with just a 10 minute walk to the Castle. Together with superior friendly service, a complimentary breakfast welcome basket, free secure car parking and thoughtful extra touches for the family, you will find the Knight Residence a most excellent choice. 

For families staying in a hotel, space can be seriously compromised.  An alternative choice is an Aparthotel.  The Knight Residence is such a place which offers luxury self-catering apartments with all the services and convenience of a Hotel, right in the heart of Edinburgh. Choose from apartments with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms, ideally suited to families of all sizes. Each of the 28 apartments has its own kitchen with washer/dryers, dishwashers (detergents provided) and microwaves. To enjoy stress-free mealtimes there is a selection of plastic plates, cups, bowls and cutlery for little ones. Having the extra lounge area allows Mums and Dads to chill out at the end of the day when the children are tucked up in bed. All apartments have multi-channel TV with a wide selection of kid's entertainment together with DVD players and music systems. There is a huge DVD library at reception with a nominal cost.  The Knight Residence offers lots of extras like complimentary Wi-Fi broadband internet access, games consoles and pc's for those who feel the need to check their emails.

What makes The Knight Residence more affordable for families is that the apartment charges are based on per adult - there are no charges that apply for children 17 and under.  They do this to make the apartments more affordable for families as they firmly believe this style of accommodation is far superior to a large hotel room or interconnecting rooms.  If you are travelling by car the free secure car parking is yet another hidden extra (especially being in the centre of Edinburgh) provided for the convenience of guests.

The customer service is highly rated with courteous, friendly and helpful staff, that prides themselves on making your stay with The Knight Residence as comfortable as possible. Your family will be warmly welcomed with a complimentary breakfast basket which includes cereal, two pints of milk, a full loaf, tea, coffee, biscuits, and fresh orange juice. Special requests, such as cots with bedding, high-chairs, strollers (limited number available) and babysitting can be taken care of, if booked before your arrival.  Thoughtful touches make a huge difference when travelling with a young family - a luxury baby toiletry pack, a Knighty Knight Bear and a children's activity pack for younger children are provided when appropriate.  A morning newspaper can be delivered to your room. Should you have forgotten to pack the odd item then don't worry as there is a small supply of essential items in the "emergency shop".

The Knight Residence is in a great location to enjoy all the fantastic family attractions and culture that Edinburgh is famous for. Step outside of the hotel and look up to see the historic Edinburgh Castle - just a ten minute walk away.  Deep Sea World, Edinburgh Dungeon and the Royal Museums of Scotland are all located nearby. You also have the lively Grassmarket and the Royal Mile.
