We didn't stay at this hotel... but myself and my partner went in for a drink before heading out for the fireworks on New Year's eve. The staff were excellent, catering to our every need. One of the waiters asked if we would like to watch the fireworks from their suite upstairs as they were in prime position which we accepted (it was so busy and cold outside!). We went up to the suite at 11.45 along with other guests of the hotel and it was excellent. They had limited the number of people entering the balmoral bar so it didn't get over crowded. I had some excellent champagne cocktails. Every member of staff we passed smiled and said happy new year, the hotel itself looked amazing, we wished we had been staying there! Will definately choose this hotel next year, just an excellent location.
