This was by far the best service we have ever had in all of our travels. And that is saying a lot - because we have traveled all around the world. The service is so consistent from the second you pull up to the Balmoral until the second you leave. They bend over backwards for you. They treat you like royalty. They spoil you. It was hard to go anywhere else after being there!! The concierge researched every castle for us. The bellman was so friendly and personable and we enjoyed spending time with him. The late night 24 hour room service Italian man was one of a kind. We could have just spent hours with him- talking! We loved him and his personality.
The "people" really made this trip!! The room was wonderful! It exceeded our expectations! It was big and beautiful and SO quiet! And so clean! The hotel has everything you need. An amazing pool and spa, restaurants, little bar, tea time! And did I mention AMAZING STAFF! OH- And it is in the best location you can ask for- it is in the middle of everything. - walking distance from the castle, from every shop under the sun and the Royal mile. I did not want to leave!!!! I cannot wait to go back!!!! I miss it so much!!
