We had an absolutely phenomenal time with yourselves and the care we received from the staff at The Balmoral was exactly the quality we had anticipated. Thank you to everyone who was available on the day and to Katie for organising the entire wedding breakfast and reception for us. We really appreciate all of your hard work and for accommodating us at such short notice!

Winter Wedding
We wanted to say a Massive Thank You for giving us the Best Wedding Day we could have ever asked for. From start to finish your services were professional, genuine and truly outstanding. Wedding planning to menu tasting and onto the big day where all our guests felt extremely cared for, nothing was ever too much. Your staff were efficient and friendly and the food was just divine. All in all, everything was just stunning. Your expertise and passion is something to be admired and we cannot thank you Katie, Tomek (head waiter), Bob (Toast master) and all your staff enough. You are all a real asset to the Balmoral. We cannot recommend the Balmoral highly enough. Warm regards, Isla & Alan Beattie-Wharton (29th Dec 2019)

World Class
Honoured to hold my wedding recently at The Balmoral having got engaged there in 2017. Absolutely everything was exceptional in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. Our wedding planner Katie Gelsthorpe was superb throughout. Indeed all the team were amazing. Can’t recommend this hotel enough, be it an overnight stay or an event such as a wedding. Truly world class. We have been lucky enough to stay in a number of rooms over recent years however the Glamis Suite is quite simply stunning. Thank you for an amazing wedding and memorable time

Wedding Reception
Our wedding reception on SAT 25th May was fantastic start to finish. All our needs addressed with Katie Gelsthorpe who overseen the whole evening. Leading up to the wedding my work was hectic and unfortunately left Katie waiting for answers with regards to buffet numbers etc. Nothing was a problem for her and on the night all finer details were seen to. The Sir Walter Suite is a must for a Edinburgh wedding venue. The views are lovely and the setting is perfect for weddings. Our photos on the staircase look amazing and we received a few surprises care of The Balmoral and Katie. Everyone that attended had a great night and everything ran along smoothly and lots of staff working on the evening. Absolute 5 star service and value for money!

Amazing Day!
We searched high and low for a good wedding venue for our ‘40 people affair’. We had no doubt that The Balmoral offered the best facilities - and the price was reasonable too! We had the use of three very stylish rooms for the ceremony, the drinks reception and the breakfast. They were all in close proximity and they all offered fabulous views of Edinburgh Castle. All the staff were excellent and they all made us feel very special. Katie Gelsthorpe, the resident wedding planner was very attentive and took account of our sometimes idiosyncratic requirements; such as accommodating a surprise concert in the evening. The food was excellent and it was served professionally and efficiently. In fact, on the day all the staff made us feel the most important people in the hotel. We have no regrets about choosing The Balmoral and we still smile every time we see it sitting at the end of Princes Street. Thank you all for an amazing day! Charlene and Brian
