We chose The Balmoral for our first visit to Edinburgh (or Edinbra, as the locals say), and couldn't have been happier. It is a lovely and charming hotel, with beautiful views and a very nice staff. We booked a junior suite, which was really big , with more than enough room to 3 people. Both restaurants are relly good, Number One being a more formal place, with gourmet dishes. My only disappointment was the charge for wifi. In my opinion, a 5star hotel should not have to charge for internet when you pay GBP 495/night for a room, but I hope they will consider that in the future.
Overall, a fantastic place to stay in this beautiful city.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You will find The Balmoral at Edinburgh's most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street, where the Old Town stops and the New Town begins. Our hotel's majestic clock defines the city's skyline and since the day we opened in 1902 it has run three minutes fast to ensure you will never miss your train. The Balmoral is a grand railway hotel where our porters can still be organised to whisk guests from the station hall to the reception desk, and our kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel. Experience Number One our Michelin-starred restaurant, indulge in afternoon tea at Palm Court or drinks in the signature whisky bar, Scotch. A comprehensive range of treatments will help you unwind in the award-wining Balmoral Spa. The 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms have magnificent views of the city or the hotel's internal courtyard. The hotel's ten banqueting suites all enjoy natural daylight and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street or the historic Old Town and can accommodate a wide range of events. ... more less
