We came up to Edinburgh for a family birthday and stayed in the Balmoral for just the one night. From the doorman to the restaurant staff everyone was helpful, but in a discreet, unimposing way that happens too often when people try too hard (e.g. the intruding questions as to whether you are enjoying your meal when you have just taken a mouthful....). The room, a classic twin, was well proportioned and comfortable. The only nuisance was that you have to call room service for them to drop of the courtesy coffee and tea. Why it was not already in the room I don't know.
An excellent stay at an excellent hotel.
