Just got back from a stay at Balmore House in Edinburgh. I was very anxious everything went smoothly as I was taking my newly wed there for a surprise weekend to Bonnie Scotland. Was slightly anxious about our late arrival time in Edinburgh as the last reviewer seemed to have had some problems as they arrived late in the evening. I double checked Booking.com reviews first before I made my reservation *good tip*. I gave them a call in the morning and told them we would be arriving at 10pm, I expected a bit of a fuss but they were very helpful. I asked whether we would be charged and was told 'no', because we called and let them know what time we would be arriving. Seemed reasonable to me as afterall it wasn't a hotel but a B&B and probably family owned.
I was still a bit anxious but instead was put at ease by the friendly staff who greeted us and showed us to our room. My husband was suitably impressed the next morning with the breakfast offered....various hot and cold dishes, cereal, fruit compote etc. I even made a request the night before for something that wasn't on the menu options and was quite surprised to see they actually provided it for me.
We really didn't want to leave as we were spoilt rotten by the staff who were so kind and hospitable to us. Admittedly it wasn't the Ritz, but I don't think it was marketing itself as that, just a homely B&B type place and close to the city centre. Long live the Scottish B&B as they still offer amazing value for money- was very impressed and left very happy :-) Thank you Balmore House!
