I stayed at the Balmoral on a recent visit to the Fringe Festival. We were a party of four, then three, and we were out most of the time at shows. The Balmoral is in an ideal position for such a trip, the food is excellent, the rooms immaculate and very comfortable. More than anything, though, it was the friendliness, attentiveness, and unaffected courtesy of all the staff that I'll remember.
One of our party left her wallet in the safe in her room and only realised on the way to the airport. She was alarmed - but she needn't have worried - the wallet was by that time already in the hotel safe and soon after, it was on its way to her by Fedex. People working at the Balmoral go the extra mile and as far a I could tell, nothing fazes them.
