          My birthday trip.”

          My wife and myself are biased as this is the fourth visit to the Albany this one being the third in consecutive years. I hoped to spend my birthday there but had to have a shorter visit this year so left on my birthday morning. Not let down though we really feel like we’ve come back home when we come here and although a little cold this time we do expect for this time of year in Scotland. We will return next year, love Edinurgh and the Albany Ballantrae Hotel.

          We loved our trip to Edinburgh and we cannot fault the hotel. It was ideal, lovely big double room, very quiet and location was perfect. Right by York Place tram stop for the journey to and from the airport. Short walk to Main Street and the old town. We loved our stay here 😄

          The hotel is in a fantastic location and the rooms are comfortable, clean and a good size (excellent power shower!) The only issue for us was that we’d booked a double room and had two twin mattresses pushed together and made up as a double. Other than that, our stay was perfect and we’d definitely come back again. Thank you!

          The hotel was very central. I chose not to have the breakfast choosing to go out and eat. I like to try various options for breakfast. The room was clean, tidy and warm, it was April and still chilly in Edinburgh. I enjoyed my stay, I needed a base as I was out most of the day this suited me perfectly for the price.

          Was in a small room but it was very clean and quiet. Would stay there again.

          We visit Edinburgh regularly and this is the first time we have stayed at the Albany Ballantrae, it won't be the last. Our room was large and airy, spotlessly clean.

          Old world style, cool decor, great staff”

          The staff here were great. The first room I stayed for 2 nights, I didn't realize until midnight the bed wasnt good for me due to back issues. I also didn't have time to change rooms next day so I didn't say anything. I checked out for a night and upon leaving I asked them when I come back the following eve if I can have a different room due to mattress. When I arrived next eve to check in I was wowed by the room. Beautiful, spacious and the bed was great. Too bad I had to leave so early next morning. They were very accomodating, kept my ice packs in their freezer and also printed up traveling papers when asked. The location was great, close to Princess Street! Great value and a more intimate stay than a big hotel.

          The only downside about this property was it’s lack of air con. We were on the top floor and our room was hot and stuffy. Reception were able to provide a fan which helped a bit

          the location,staff and cleanliness of this hotel was amazing but don't pin much expectation on the breakfast! it was quite a small selection, toast,cereal, fruit etc but no hot offerings. Would definitely revisit however just eat out for breakfast!

          Parts of hotel bit dated , new carpets and coat of paint would sort it out . Our room was lovely and clean . The staff were excellent especially Alex . Nothing was too much trouble , made our experience all the more pleasant . Would definately go back to this hotel next visit to Edinburgh .
