One night, but didnt enjoy it
The room and the hotel were great, but too boring if you are planning to stay in the room for a couple of hours. they literally blocked all the good free TV channels. having stayed in other hotels in the area we had access to many TV channels and hence could just spend a day relaxing in bed. but in the Balmoral it was impossible.

Excellent first experience.
We really appreciated that the Hotel and staff went over and above with a complimentary room upgrade to a suite that was not asked for. The staff were very kind and even organised a small complimentary sweet as a birthday acknowledgement for my partner. Leisure facilities and Spa are excellent. We did not use the in house restaurants but they are to be recommended by all accounts.

Towering above Princes Street
My sister and I travelled together - both in our mid-seventies - and received a very warm welcome and assistance whenever needed and without asking. The staff were well trained and charming. Breakfast, which was included in the room rate, offered an enormous variety of delicious possibilities - the only drawback being that the plates, and sometimes the food, were cold. We didn't find a residents' lounge however, the Palm Court (a rococo extravaganza) being apparently reserved for those booking in for morning coffee or the all-day afternoon tea. The main attraction of the Balmoral however is its location, towering above Princes Street just above Waverley Station, with a vista of the Old Town on one side (we could see Salisbury Crags from the bedroom) and easy access across Princes Street to the New Town. We intend to return, but hope next time to find a package deal, since our stay was far from cheap.
