Edinburgh is the hottest place to be in the UK this August – and not just because of the sizzling summer temperatures north of the border. The Edinburgh International Festival and its Fringe event kick off on August 3, bringing world class performance and entertainment to the capital.

With three weeks of opera, theatre, comedy and street performances, visitors who plan on staying long enough to experience all the Festival has to offer will need a home away from home – and the city’s number one Trip Advisor-rated hotel offers just that.

Except, The Chester Residence isn’t actually a hotel. It’s a series of chic and stylish Georgian townhouses offering all the flexibility and space of serviced apartments with the luxury and elegance of a five-star hotel.
The outstanding feature of The Chester Residence is the space that its apartments offer guests – the square footage of each is incredibly impressive, with more room to move than most flats. There is a choice of one and two-bedroom apartments, all of which offer the same level of luxury that has become a hallmark of the award-winning five-star property.

The Edinburgh Festival is not the only festival in eastern Scotland in August. Find out about the Fringe by the Sea 2018 in North Berwick.

Each apartment is unique and has something different to offer: Penthouse apartments give stunning views across the city and beyond; a Mews apartment has its own private landscaped garden; and the Owner’s Residence – the very pinnacle of luxury – has a jacuzzi hot tub, cinema room and furnishings by Armani and Louis Vuitton.

All apartments come complete with high quality furnishings, Egyptian cotton bedding, tempting toiletries, fluffy bathrobes, kitchens to envy, and state of the art technology. Guests who don’t want to use the kitchen facilities can also have breakfast delivered to their apartment each morning.

The Residence is ideally located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic new town, meaning it’s just a short walk away from the sights and sounds of the Festival and the Fringe, which takes in over 300 venues across the city.

Prices start from £230 per night, with advance bookings made directly on the website receiving a 10% discount. This requires a non-refundable prepayment.
