My 17 year old son and I stayed at the Balmoral for two nights before setting off to St Andrews, the countryside, and then returned for a third night. All was just perfect. Rooms well appointed, concierge staff so attentive, breakfast a feast, could not be better located. We requested a quiet room and were inside with a courtyard view for the first two nights. The most fabulous bathroom ever and totally quiet. When we returned, we requested a view to see the difference and WOW it was spectacular. The were a couple snafu's upon check in and the staff immediately sent a bottle of wine as an apology. Truly and excellent stay all around. We also had tea in the Palm Court and it was very special. Highly recommend. Didn't have time to try the spa.
