In the true sense of the word, The Balmoral, with its majestic clock tower, is a stylish 5 star property in the very heart of Edinburgh. Built in 1902, it was remodelled in 2004.
While many Edinburgh hotels claim to have Edinburgh’s landmarks on their doorstep, few can say their doorstep is a landmark. Located on Princes Street in Edinburgh’s main shopping area, and next to Waverley station, The Balmoral is close to the leading luxury department stores and within striking distance of many Edinburgh attractions.
The Balmoral offers 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms with views towards Edinburgh Castle, the Old Town or the hotel’s internal courtyard. All the bedrooms were fully refurbished in a 7 million Euro refurbishment programme.
The refurbishment also included The Balmoral’s signature conference and banqueting suite The Sir Walter Scott Suite, as well as seven further conference and banqueting suites, Hadrian’s Brasserie, Number One restaurant and the hotel lobby.
When it comes to fine dining, the choice of restaurants at The Balmoral matches the mood of the moment. With attentive but non-intrusive service, guests can choose from the hotel’s Michelin-starred Number One restaurant with outstanding cuisine provided by chef Jeff Bland, Hadrian’s for chic and informal, Dining Palm Court for cocktails or traditional afternoon tea, and NBS Bar for a relaxing drink.
For the ultimate in relaxation, The Balmoral Spa is an exclusive retreat in the heart of the city. It offers five treatment rooms, a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gymnasium and exercise studio.
The Balmoral Hotel is a member of the Rocco Forte collection, the luxury hotel brand with properties located throughout Europe.
