The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh - sheer luxury

My husband and I got married on March 14th 2012 and it was a lovely day.  The service was beautiful and the meal was delicious.

For our wedding night we travelled to Edinburgh and arrived at the stunning 5 star Balmoral Hotel.  Even before you walk through the door it oozes class and sophistication.

When we arrived at reception we were greeted by the friendly receptionist, who knew our surname before me even spoke, and she advised us we have been given a free room upgrade. Once we were checked in she showed us to our room and concierge arrived 5 minutes later with our luggage.

Walking into the room I was amazed at how simple yet luxurious the room was.  I looked around and could not believe I was lucky enough to be in such a stunning hotel.

Once settled we ordered room service which was delivered quickly and I was amazed at the spread before us! Again given amazing service as the gentleman offered to pour my tea!! Simple pleasures make the experience even better!  The food was absolutely beautiful, as expected.

The room was large with a gorgeous king size bed which had rose petals scattered across, a unit in which the tv (cable) was housed, a desk, books, two comfortable seats and a massive wardrobe.  The bathroom was AMAZING a huge bath which 2 people could easily fit in and the shower was fantastic I wanted to take the bath home with me!! Robes and slippers were also supplied in the room

After a wonderful nights sleep we went to Hadrian's for breakfast. We were seated quickly and within 10 minutes had our breakfast in front of us. Again the food and the service were out of this world.

I felt rather sad when we checked out but I would go back to the hotel in a heartbeat.

100% recommend this hotel for that bit of luxury. We all deserve it don't we :)
