Just came back from a wonderful stay at The Balmoral. My daughter is doing a semester abroad at the University of Edinburgh and I came to visit her. I traveled solo and the hotel could not have been more warm or welcome. The concierge staff in particular was brilliant! They remembered my name after the first day and were always ready with an incredibly helpful suggestion or pointer. The room was warm and comfortable, the hotel is gorgeous, the rest of the staff incredibly friendly. The location was ideal as I came on the train from London (and the hotel is right beside the train station and central to EVERYTHING). Breakfasts at the restaurant were very good and dinners, exceptional (this is Hadrian's). The afternoon tea was amazing. All in all my stay at the Balmoral was one of the best hotel interludes I have ever had. I strongly recommend this great hotel!

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.
