We have just returned from a short break at the Balmoral in Edinburgh and to be honest I dont normally comment, however, this time I am because if you are conisdering this hotel then do not hesitate. A fabulous setting - a genuine old style hotel but with the style and panache you would expect at a Forte hotel. The staff were so friendly, nothing was any bother and from the reception staff, concierge, restaurant and turn down staff all you ever got was a smile and a genuine greeting. We had breakfast included in our stay and that was fab, set in Hadrians' restaurant again nothing was too much trouble. We also chose to eat in Hadrians' for Valentines evening and we were not disappointed. Set right in the heart of Edinburgh just around the corner from Waverley Station you are near everything. We took a tour bus as we were only there a couple of days and that got us everywhere we wanted to see - Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, National Gallery, Royal Mile, Scottish Paliament & Arthurs Seat. Thank you so much to the Balmoral staff for a wonderful stay and if you are still wondering whether to book - just do it!!
