The location of the hotel and the room were excellent. We didn't try the hotel's breakfast as we were keen to explore the city. There were so many place to eat in Edinburgh that it seemed best to try a variety of places. The hotel's Afternoon Tea was superb though!
I don't think anything could be improved upon. We found the staff friendly, helpful an attentive throughout our stay.

The room service was exceptional. There was a personalised letter on arrival wishing us a happy wedding anniversary and when we returned to the room after a night out, in edinburgh, they had spread rose perals in a heart shape on the bed.
Nothing. Very happy.

So convenient for railway station as well as the Playhouse Theatre where we saw The Lion King. It was also an ideal location for visiting shops and the cinema. The room was very comfortable and the attention to detail by the staff was exceptional.

service in the palm court afternoon tea room on Friday afternoon last was disappointingly slow. I had to order twice before my coffee came and there was an absence of staff so I had to wait several minutes at the end to pay.

Wow the hotel was beyond our expectations we were on a five day road trip heading to Edinburgh a different hotel every night and we saved the best till last the balmoral is magnificent from entering the front door greeted by a true footmen in tweed to reception where we couldn’t of been made any more special by the friendly staff the young lady was from Spain as I recall we were shown where the lift was to our room with directions on opening the room door it was exceptional the decor the bed the bathroom totally blown away we made our way to the bar and we were made welcome as we entered we had drinks and made our way to the room to change to to go for a meal our bed had been turned down and slippers were on a white cloth mat at the sides of our bed the young lady from Spain on reception told us of a great place to eat and we were shown directions the Indian food restaurant on St. Andrews square didn’t disappoint the food was delicious great atmosphere great staff we made our way back to the balmoral and greeted again as if we had been visiting for years few more drinks we retired to our room huge Thankyou to all at the balmoral that we met on our stay will return again soon
