We checked out the previous ratings that were less than favourable just to see what some of the problems might be. We went ahead and booked a room hoping for the best. We were not disappointed! I'm not sure what the other ratings were all...More
Every aspect of our stay, from check in to check out, was flawless. Our train back to London was cancelled and the concierge personally walked us to the station with our bags to make sure we got on an earlier, unaffected train. He then walked...More

My earlier stay this year at the Bamoral was disappointing. Notwithstanding, it's preferential location swayed the balance and I decided to stay here again. Stayed under the fine hotels and resorts package by American Express.
The Festival was on and Edinburgh was hectic. Checked in...More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
