Wonderful service
Very nice hotel in a great location with wonderful service. We arrived early in the morning from an overnight flight and our room wasn’t ready yet but they suggested we could take a shower and relax in the spa area which was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent - nice space and delicious food. And drinks in the Whiski bar were nice as well.

Great hotel, amazing staff
Great stay at the Balmoral Rocco Forte hotel. Service did really stand out, especially James (concierge/bell boy), Thomas (Scotch Bar), and the staff at Prince restaurant. The rooms were comfortable and clean, although the carpeting may use some updating. Overall a great stay.
