Staff very helpful but room not ready, 3.45 before ready
Great central location. Room was excellent.
Poor service in Brasserie restaurant. Manager did resolve.
Staff was wonderful, super efficient and friendly.
Room service food was a bit bland, breakfast buffet was over priced
Bed was heaven and the sheets were so soft. Both the private whiskey bar and the regular bar were fantastic! Robert shared lots of information for a first time whiskey taster like me! Hotel is old charm paired with modern furnishings. High ceilings in our room was s plus !
Service at the restaurant for dinner both nights was very slow. Our waiter was good but kitchen really slow. Perhaps under staffed a bit. Food good!
Staff excellent very tastefully decorated
Dinner a little pricey but it is Michelin Star
The British Isles is a repository for so much culture and the people all provide a great window onto one of the great countries in the world. A massive contributor to British culture is Scotland, and the city of Edinburgh is its biggest city. When you stay in Edinburgh, you experience all the great Scottish traditions including the architecture, food, and of course, the kilts. Staying in Edinburgh means finding a great hotel, one of which is the Balmoral Hotel.
The Balmoral Hotel is all about providing travelers with some impressively luxurious accommodations. The best part about the hotel is the location. There are so many places to see in Edinburgh and the hotel is right in the middle of all of them. With rooms that are luxuriously appointed and a staff that is dedicated to service, you’ll feel as if you’re the only guest in the hotel. With a pool and spa on the premises, it is extremely easy to relax.
Scottish cuisine is one of the great understated pleasures of any trip. In Edinburgh, it is done right. There are plenty of great places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. However, the Balmoral does offer some in-house dining that will make you think twice about heading out to eat. Number One and Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux are two excellent restaurants to go along with the bars and lounges in the hotel.
Edinburgh is a great place the visit, and staying at the Balmoral Hotel is a great choice for rooms.
