The Balmoral Hotel

Rated 9.3 in 1087 reviews. 188 rooms.

★★★★★

You will find The Balmoral at Edinburgh’s most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street, where the Old Town stops and the New Town begins. The hotel’s majestic clock defines the city’s skyline and since the day the property opened in 1902 it has run three minutes fast to ensure you will never miss your train. The Balmoral is a grand railway hotel where porters can still be organised to whisk guests from the station hall to the reception desk, and the kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel.

Located on Princes Street, The Balmoral has a Michelin-starred restaurant, a pool and a gym. Waverley Station and Edinburgh's main shopping area are within 5 minutes' walk. First opened in 1902, The Balmoral now offers rooms with a spacious marble bathroom and an interactive TV. Many rooms have views towards Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town. Number One Restaurant provides a fine dining menu, while Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux offers an informal dining atmosphere. Palm Court features afternoon tea and the Balmoral Bar serves innovative cocktails in a relaxed setting, while The Scotch offers over 400 varieties of Scottish Whisky. With a sauna and a Turkish steam room, The Balmoral Spa features 5 treatment rooms and an exercise studio. With its own splendid clock tower, The Balmoral offers 5-star accommodation in the heart of Edinburgh. The city’s airport is a 25-minute drive from the building.
