First class hotel next to main train station

We stayed at the Balmoral for two nights and attended a friend’s wedding held at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the service, food and facilities were all excellent.

Nice hotel but been in better 5 star rooms

Lovely centrally located hotel with excellent staff. Room was at very back of the hotel. View was awful, thought maybe because we booked with ebookers and not hotel direct.

Review of Rocco Forte Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh

The Hotel amenities beat all expectations. The staff were particularly attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. Absolutely first class service.

Tasokas hotelli todella keskeisellä paikalla.

Pros: Katso yllä oleva vastaus.
Cons: Huoneen valaistuksen suunnittelu oli kyllä jäänyt puolitiehen. Esim. pöydän ääressä lukeminen ja kirjoittaminen olisi vaatinut melkeinpä taskulamppua.
Location: Keskeinen sijainti aivan juna-aseman vieressä. Kaikki liikennevälineet muutaman minuutin kävelymatkan päässä.
Kaikki sujui aivan loistavasti. Hotellin palvelut kuntosaleineen, uima-altaineen aivan hieno juttu. Lisäksi hotellin sijainti sekä henkilökunta aivan mainiot.
