JUNE 2012 - NUMBER 41 IN THE WORLD!
A luxury serviced apartment complex in Edinburgh is one of only four hotels in the UK included in the top 100 compiled by the world’s largest online travel agency.
The Knight Residence, near Edinburgh Castle, is ranked at no. 41 in the 2012 Expedia Insider Select list, drawn up after study of half a million independent guest reviews.
The 650 ‘must visit’ hotels in the list are situated in 295 cities in 74 countries around the world - but only four of the top 100 are in the UK and only two are located in Scotland. It is the fifth year in succession that The Knight Residence has featured in the list.
“It’s a remarkable achievement to have been named one of best hotels in the world and a tribute to the consistency of our customer service,” said General Manager Colin Stone. “One factor in our favour is that we offer more space than a conventional hotel which is particularly attractive to business travellers and people with young families.”
He added: “Edinburgh itself remains one of the great tourist hotspots and business centres in Europe and we are lucky to have a splendid location right in the heart of the city.”
Expedia quoted Knight Residence guest Helen from Eastbourne as reporting:
“All aspects of the apartment were very impressive and the team had thought of everything to make this a real home from home. We were given advice and help about activities and even able to purchase attraction tickets from reception.”
The Knight Residence, in Lauriston Street, has 28 one, two and three bedroom apartments. It has no restaurant of its own but breakfast packs and daily housekeeping essentials are provided.
