The ceiling and balconies are stunningly carved. We ate in the tearoom along the main promenade. The interior was pure art nouveau. The food was excellent, a good... More

The empress ballroom is magnificent. The dance floor is great. Staff very friendly and helpful. Shops and bars easily accessible. Ice cream and chocolate available outside the ballroom. Lots of restaurants that seemed to offer good value for money.

This was a great evening in a beautiful venue, the security was discreet and the concert had been moved from a standing venue to a seated one which was a big improvement. A great atmosphere , with an excellent support act ( Dirty Harry- a Blondie tribute ) and the boy's from Edinburgh themselves. Fantastic !
