A LUXURY serviced apartment complex in the Capital has been named the best hotel in the UK by the world’s largest online travel agency.
The Knight Residence apart-hotel near Edinburgh Castle was hailed by Expedia’s 2013 Insider Select list of 650 hotels around the world, drawn up after a study of half a million independent guest reviews.
Expedia said the list – which ranked the Lauriston Street hotel at number nine globally – “recognises the very best hotels available in its global marketplace”.
Colin Stone, general manager of The Knight Residence, said: “It’s a remarkable achievement and a tribute to the consistently high standards we strive to achieve.
“One factor in our favour is that we offer more space and facilities than even top-of-the-range rooms in a conventional hotel. This is particularly attractive to business travellers and people with young families.
“Edinburgh itself remains one of the main tourist hotspots and business centres in Europe and we are lucky to have an enviable location.”
