The Edinburgh Grand, was Jen and me last accommodation in Edinburgh for our final day in Scotland. It is a luxury all-apartment Residence located in the beating heart of Edinburgh, available to book for any length of stay, from one night, to one year or more.
Situated on St Andrew Square in the city’s New Town area, the Residence pays homage to its former life as an historic banking landmark, The National Bank of Scotland. The well-known building has been beautifully renovated to house 50 fully equipped serviced apartments, with options to accommodate from one to six guests. Each apartment seamlessly incorporates the building’s historic roots with slick contemporary design, and the interior décor has been intricately chosen to enhance authentic features including original dark wood panelling, fireplaces, brass door handles and decorative cornicing.
Only a short walk from the city’s main railway station, Waverley, and well-placed for shopping and dining out, Cheval The Edinburgh Grand is the ideal spot from which to discover the past and present of Scotland’s vibrant capital city.
The only downside we found was no parking. We had rented a car, and we didn’t need to return it until the following morning, but when we went to check in, there was very limited 15 min parking in front of location to unload the car, and there there was absolutely no place to park the car near by. I ended up having to park the car over on the corner of E. Market St. and Crankston St. which was located on the other side of Edinburgh’s Waverly Railstation, can close to where High Street became Canongate which will take you to the Scottish Parliament building.
Tub time is important to Jen and this tub was probably the grandest one she got to enjoy.
Here are a few more shots of the room and hallway to our apartment.
