We've always wanted to stay at The Balmoral, and very glad that we did. 5 star hotel, 5 star service with an excellent room and skyline view of Edinburgh. The Prince bar is marvellous. A very classy old-fashioned bar with a great cocktail menu. Spa facilities are very good, and gym, though small, has every machine you will need.
