Expedia® Insiders’ select™ List 2015
For the eighth year running, Expedia® has named The Knight Residence among the top-ranked hotels on this year’s Expedia Insiders’ Select™ list. The Insiders’ Select list formally recognizes individual hotels worldwide that consistently deliver excellent service, a great overall experience and a notable value.
The Knight Residence by Mansley has been named the best serviced apartments in the world by ‘high end lifestyle’ magazine LUX.
The complex of 28 apartments near Edinburgh Castle ‘has consistently demonstrated dedication, flair for innovation and all-round excellence,” magazine spokesperson Laura Hunter commented.
The monthly publication said its 2015 Global Hotel and Spa Awards were the result of months of research and analysis, and described The Knight Residence as ‘five star serviced apartments suitable for business, pleasure or families complete with the luxury of a hotel.’
General Manager Colin Stone said The Knight Residence had received nominations from guests on four continents and added: “It’s a remarkable achievement to be rated by experts as the finest serviced apartments in the world, especially when one considers the exceptionally high standard of other luxury accommodation in the sector around the globe.
“Our staff work hard to make guests’ stays memorable, ensure their needs are met and help them make the most of their stay in Scotland’s capital.”
Other top awards were won by hotels and spas in New York, Hawaii, Japan, South Africa, Italy, Austria, Portugal and Spain.
