Luxury and a great location
The Balmoral has been described as old-school Scottish luxury, and that really seems to sum it up. My wife and I were greeted at the door, welcomed warmly at reception, and told that our only job was to go to our room and relax. We had had amazing views of the castle and the Scott Monument from our room. The location was very convenient for walking the city. We took a lift from the train platform to street level and walked about a hundred feet to get to the main doors. Shopping was right outside the hotel and the old town was a short and beautiful walk.

Excellent4.0 / 5
We came for a single night stay so it's rather difficult to judge the hotel properly, but the cost definitely outweighed the opulence. We felt like it was only okay in terms of rooms.

THe Balmoral: FEEL like you are in Scotland!
Just an overnight stay en route to St. Andrews. I arrived by train into Waverly Stationa Dan walked to the hotel. Great welcoming doormen (in kilts!) and very, very courteous checkin and staff. Perfect room with view across the river to the old town. Comfortable bed, nice amenities, quiet room with a feeling of elegance. Easy walk to many of Edinburgh's attractions and restaurants. I would definitely stay there again!

absolutely wonderful stay
I cannot say enough good about the service we received during our stay. We had one little glitch the first morning there in the restaurant, that now seems ridiculous to bring up. The staff of this hotel took exceptional care of us and paid attention to details that exceeded our expectation. My daughter who was studying abroad in Edinburgh liked the fudge at the front desk (served in the evening), one night it wasn't there and when we got back to our room, someone had delivered a small plate to our room. Kenny (from Skye) made a special effort bring shortbread cookies when we came in one night. From the front desk, to the conceriege to housekeeping..perfect. it was like home away from home.
