We are just back from a two night stay at the Balmoral and must say it was wonderful.
We booked a luxury double room from late rooms for £185 per night.
The hotel is truly romantic. The decor is modern but has a cosy feel. The staff cant do enough for you but are not intrusive.
When we checked in our car was immediately taken away , check in went well and we were personally shown to our room which was lovely and spacious. We had a view of Princes Street as well as a view of the north bridge.
We had booked afternoon tea at the Palm Court . This was elegant as well as having a laid back atmosphere. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious!!!
The Balmoral bar was nice for a refreshment after having a stroll and not too pricey compared to other 5 star hotels we have stayed in. Janine the waitress was working very hard and service was with a smile.
Breakfast at hadrian's was very nice but we had a little wait for our eggs but they were cooked perfectly. we also ate at Number 1 as a spceial treat. This we would highly recommend. The food was first class.
The spa was a peaceful and tranquil place and the staff were really friendly and helpful. We only have one small criticism and that was that the televisions could be updated but then we wern't there to watch TV but They were on the old fashioned style
We enjoyed our time at the Balmoral immensley and did not want to come home. We are now thinking of booking again for Valentine's day, we will just have to save some pennies!!!!
