A hotel of luxury, the hotel team are incredibly attentive and everyone has a big smile on their face.

Location is perfect, you can't get any better for seeing Edinburgh. The food was very nice (breakfast) and the room was very clean. Can't really fault it!

Room 147

This is a luxry hotel, but our original room was anything but luxury.

It was small, dark and faced onto flat roof area. I am surprised that they offer anybody this room and would recommend that the convert it into a cleaners cupboard, unless they have customers who would like look out onto the air conditioning system!. We tld staff how disappointed we were with our room as we booked it a year in advance and had been looking forward to it. As it was a very busy weekend, being bank holiday and marathon festival they were full. However, they did manage to change it although on the first night wehad duble room rather than a twin. Whilst we were running the marathon they moved us to a much nicer twin. Customer service at this hotel is excellent and Douglas and Anna were very ver helpful. We will be back again next year, as long as we are not given 147 again!!!

Excellent place to stay in Edinburgh

Incredibly grand, huge - like a small city - and well run.

Right next to the station, and on Princess Street, it's worth it if you can afford it.

The Balmoral Bar

To be brutally honest, our planned couple of days in Edinburgh turned into an 8 hour cocktail extravaganza at The Balmoral Bar, The Barperson on duty was amazing, he was product knowledgeable, engaging, witty & charismatic.

What started with a quick cocktail @ the bar to begin our overnight stay in Edinburgh. turned into masterclass. Bravo Bravo Bravo. With no hesitation we returned to the bar for a cocktail or 2 before we departed home on our long train journey. highly recommend the cocktail experience.
