Second time in Edinburgh but first time staying at this hotel and it was everything as expected and more. From the moment we entered to check in, all of the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Special recognition and praise goes to David in concierge who helped plan a highlands trip, provide maps, liaise with the car renal company, and call several distilleries to inform them of our visit. He went completely above and beyond my expectations of a concierge service and gave us tips on an unforgettable highlands trip.
Additionally this was our second time dining at Number One. On top of bringing back fond memories of the first visit, we may have enjoyed this dinner even more with the excellent food, wine, friendly and knowledgeable staff and relaxed atmosphere. It has easily come into our top three restaurants, even coming ahead of Heston Blumenthal's 'The Fat Duck"!! Very high praise.
Looking forward to the next time we get to stay and dine at The Balmoral. Lives up to its reputation of being the best hotel in Edinburgh!
