This time it was a brief stay at The Balmoral and it was a family trip (previously I have stayed there a few times on business), with six of us (four kids aged between 8 and 14), but they excelled in every way...from the great welcome the kids got (kids packs and snacks in the room), to the fantastic and large rooms (we had two junior suites which were perfect!), through to the first class attitude and service of all the staff we had contact with (special note - Rob, the senior guy on the front desk looked after us really well).
All-in-all we cannot fault the hotel in any way. It is the best hotel in Edinburgh, in the best location, with the best staff and the highest standards ....our stay could not have been better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You will find The Balmoral at Edinburgh's most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street, where the Old Town stops and the New Town begins. Our hotel's majestic clock defines the city's skyline and since the day we opened in 1902 it has run three minutes fast to ensure you will never miss your train. The Balmoral is a grand railway hotel where our porters can still be organised to whisk guests from the station hall to the reception desk, and our kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel. Experience Number One our Michelin-starred restaurant, indulge in afternoon tea at Palm Court or drinks in the signature whisky bar, Scotch. A comprehensive range of treatments will help you unwind in the award-wining Balmoral Spa. The 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms have magnificent views of the city or the hotel's internal courtyard.
