    The breakfast was extraordinarily good and leaves nothing to be desired. In the evening you can "only" eat a Caesar Salad but you are still welcome. The staff is generally very friendly and helpful.

    The hotel has a very central location and you can quickly reach the Royal Mile (main street of Edinburgh). Here you walk for a maximum of 10 minutes and this walk was very pleasant. Since one is not in the core of the historical old town ("Old Town"), one can also explore "New Town" very well. There are some places to visit here.

    Extra cost for spa area. Breakfast could also contain more vegetables (fresh cucumbers, fresh tomatoes).

    The porters were very helpfull in assisting me to unpack and repack my car and transport my luggage.

    The restaurant was not as good as expected. The food on the Indian night was dull and uninteresting with no traditional starters.It was a bit mean to charge extra for use of sauna/spa facilities.

    The staff at the hotel and the concierge were very pleasant and friendly the nationality of a lot of staff are Europeans, so talking about the history of the place they were as much in the dark as ourselves. The room was excellent except for a few lights not working, the mood lighting and the lay out of the room was very well presented. The pool and the gym facilities were very well presented but will comment on this later. The breakfast and the food in the morning was very nice and well presented in the light and airy dinning room

    The points that let the hotel down is information because we only stayed one night we were a bit pushed for time and read that its best to book the hydropool.so I booked before we arrived. On arrival 7 hours after booking they had no confirmation, so they said from booking .com ?so we had to wait around and then they gave us the wrong room without the view we had specially booked, so no comunication between the two. Only one dressing gown in the wardrobe but this was quickly attended to, also they quickly changed the room. We got changed for dinner, and found that the dinning room was selfservice not as we would expect from five star. Also there was no dress code not what you would expect from 5star, they also have an Italian restaurant across the car park but unfortunately this was closed on Sundays,So we had to taxi to the balmoral and just got a table at late notice. To be refreshed for dinner as I said we had booked the hydro spar that possibly was a mistake, To surprise my wife I booked her a back massage it was all they could fit in to suite our time that was 50 pounds for 45min and she thoroughly enjoyed it. We spent about an 1/2 hour in the swimming pool which is in with the hotel but the hydropool was packed you could not get in any of the special rooms the outside pool and spar was fairly clear as it was very cold. One of the rooms had no lighting and the changing rooms were under refurbishment with builders working and pedestrian barriers around most of the area. So when I went to settle up the bill was surprised to find we had been charged £60 pounds to access the hydro pool which I took naively as in with the pool and with the hotel costs?.this for twenty minutes we could not use and the place was littered with towels, shoes on the floors the dirt in the pool of the spar, not up to five star quality possibly council municipally with a few more staff thrown in.

    The staff was very attentive and helpful. We were allowed to check in early as soon as the rooms were ready. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. They were spacious and well-furnished. The room services was also obliging and prompt. The hotel situates slightly away from the main streets so it was very quiet and yet within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. The bus stop for air shuttle bus (Airlink) was just a few minutes walk. I also liked the bar/tea lounge and the terrace restaurant.
