Very enjoyable. Upgraded to a suite. Attended a large Edinburgh Uni function. Reception, Dinner etc all excellent. Service excellent all round. Reception staff and Porters so helpful. Just one small criticism otherwise very good stay. The hotel needs some updating but I am sure the management will have that in hand.

Great hotel for none thirsty guests!
The hotel itself was lovely and overall enjoyed the stay. We love Edinburgh and visit a couple of times per year. The big issue we had at the balmoral, which would see us return to the Scotsman on future visits was the hotel bar. It’s very popular and table service only. So at busy periods if no tables are available you queue until one comes free. The bar is heavily used by the public and no priority is given to residents. Several times during our 2 night stay we were unable to use the bar which in my mind is unacceptable at a 5 star hotel. We raised this 3 times as a complaint and Nobody did anything to address the issue

Overall a great stay. Just a few little niggles. Cold and draughty at times during the night as heating kept going off. Awoken at 2am by guests in an adjoining room. Breakfast items pancakes and potato scones were on in room dining menu but not available downstairs. Bathrobes not soft and fluffy but were hard and stiff.. Orange mould along side of bat.
