Yes, there may be 100 steps to reach New Town heaven but it’s well worth it for the stunning views across Edinburgh’s city scape. (Whisper it, but one of our penthouses has views of the castle – talk to us nicely and we’ll tell you which one.)

As the many original features of The Chester Residence are listed, there are no lifts to the top floors but our guests tell us that it’s well worth the climb to be ensconced in discriminating and distinguished luxury. And, our eternally cheerful – and muscle bound – concierges are always on hand to carry your luggage.

Lock the door … With your own roll large top bathtub and Tile television, huge walk in rainfall shower and super king-sized bed you won’t want to go anywhere else.
