The Balmoral, A Rocco Forte Hotel


The Balmoral Hotel is a luxurious establishment situated in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland, at the east end of Princes Street. Originally constructed in 1902 for the North British Railway Company, it has undergone significant renovations and refurbishments throughout its history, including a £23 million transformation in 1991, which saw it become part of the Forte Group's "Forte Grand" collection of international high-end hotels. The hotel boasts a range of accommodation types, from classic rooms to deluxe suites, each offering a blend of contemporary comfort and Scottish charm. Guests can enjoy various dining experiences, such as the Michelin-starred Number One restaurant and the atmospheric Palm Court tea room. The hotel's location, with its iconic clock tower, provides a convenient connection to Waverley Station and offers panoramic views of Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town.
