This is the second time we've stayed at the Albany Balantrae and this was every bit as good as the first time. Only difference was last time it was a cooked breakfast but this time a Continental one but more than enough choice and quality for anyone

I booked a room for my parents as a theatre weekend present for their anniversary, and the location of the hotel was great. However on arrival they were told that both the bar and restaurant would be shut for the weekend. They also found their bathroom to be cold due to the towel rail being shut off. When my dad tried to open the towel rail valve it just leaked water over the bathroom floor, and as it was a Saturday there was no maintenance. As for the breakfast I would expect a 4 star hotel to offer more than just a continental, which despite my parents getting to at just after nine, was half empty, with the staff unable or unwilling to replace the items which had gone. The room that they had was at the front of the hotel, and they found the outside noise quite loud and difficult to sleep through. I can appreciate that the hotel can't control outside noise, but it could install better glazing to help dampin the sound.

Hotel staff very helpful on arrival, especially with the car parking which is difficult in Edinburgh,although it would be nice if the hotel charged a little less and not the same as a meter.The room was reasonable, the bathroom could have been better,no shelving for toiletries,I think the shower plughole was blocked but didn't want to check!A clean loo brush would also be beneficial. Location wise very good being close to Broughton Street and 5 mins. from the centre. Breakfast as far as continental goes good choice of cereal, fruit,juices,croissants and cooked meats,coffee and toast served to the table.

We had an excellent stay at the Albany by Ballantrae. We had booked 2 double rooms and these hotel had overbooked those and upgraded 1 of our rooms to the honeymoon suite. Some of the hotel furniture is a bit dated in the rooms but is clean. The location is prefect and you are a short walk to the centre of town. Depending on when you visit keep in mind parking can be free on the street instead of paying hotel. One more street down from Albay street you can park from Friday at 5.30pm until Monday morning at 8am for free. You can here a lot of noise from passing traffic from the room. This may be annoying for some. I would definitely use this hotel again for a short weekend stay
