I only stayed at the Balmoral one night so was not able to make use of all its facilities. The gym and spa looked really nice and I did not eat at any of there restuarants.

The cost is so high, so I would say stay here only if you are looking to endulge. The room was nice, bed was only a double so a bit small for two people and we had asked for a twin room.

The bathroom was amazing! Huge bath tub, nice bath products and just really nice room all together, I could have spent a lot of time in that room alone ;-).

The hotel has valet parking at a high cost (£30) and they park the cars far away so need to give them at least 30 minute notice to fetch your car when you need it.

Location is great for both new and old town, comfortable walking distance from both.

The conceirege was very helpful in booking us for dinner and sites.
