stayed 1 night at the Balmoral. Parked in the St James Centre. Cost only £17.10 for 26 hours parking so not bad. At check in they asked if we were there for a special occasion and I explained it was my husbands birthday. they invited us to a glass of champagne & nibbles in the bar while they took our luggage up to the room. When we got to our room there was a card and more champagne and some chocolate dipped strawberries. The room 518 is lovely with a fantastic castle and princess st view. Liked the dressing area and plasma tv. Bathroom was kind of cold and the shower soaked the floor but otherwise shower was fab, so powerfull, lots of tolietries and lovely snug bathrobes. Didn't eat in the hotel but had some more drinks in the bar before heading out and the pianst played our song etc. Had room service breakfast which was really lovely. Would definately stay here again.
