Possibly the most prestigious address in Edinburgh. Once a somewhat boring railway hotel, now an acclaimed 5 star hotel in the very epicentre of the city. Lowest priced rooms are a little dark, otherwise beautiful.
The Rocco Forte Collection's The Balmoral is a luxury hotel in the true sense of the word. It is a stylish five-star property in the very heart of Edinburgh. The Balmoral has been beautifully refurbished and individually designed by Olga Polizzi. The 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms have magnificent views of the city or the hotel's internal courtyard. For a memorable culinary experience, visit number one - the only Michelin-starred hotel restaurant in Edinburgh – or try the chic and stylish Hadrian’s Brasserie. In addition, Palm Court hosts Scotland’s only Bollinger Champagne Bar. For utter relaxation visit The Balmoral’s award-winning Spa, with its 15metre pool, ESPA treatment rooms and fully-equipped gym. The Balmoral’s ten conference and banqueting suites all enjoy natural daylight and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street or the historic Old Town. They can accommodate a wide range of events from intimate dinner parties to large receptions.
