I've stayed in the Balmoral several times over the years for business and it's always a pleasure to return to it. Nothing is ever too much for the staff, whether it's Kevin sorting out restaurants for me on the Concierge desk or Ian making sure an espresso is never too far away.
The styling of the rooms is classic but contemporary and never jars the eye (Always a nice feature of Rocco Forte Hotels). I was lucky to be given a deluxe category room and the bed was amazing...had a great night's sleep!
Room service breakfast arrived right on time the next morning and all in all I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I only wish it had a been a bit longer.
The hotel is perfectly located, right in the middle of town and immediately above Waverley station. It has a variety of bars, restaurants and a lovely Palm Court to have Afternoon Tea.
But it's the service that always stands out for me. It's impeccable.
