This sophisticated hotel, notable for its famous clocktower, is set close to the Old Town, New Town, Princes Street and Waverley Station in Edinburgh. The Balmoral has a Michelin star restaurant, lavish afternoon teas and a superb spa.

The building is a city landmark – an old Victorian railway hotel updated for the modern age, with a tea room and deluxe services: laundry, valet parking and room service. Luxurious guest rooms have modern amenities, including Nespresso coffee makers, Scottish tea, dressing gowns and slippers. Upgrade to an executive or deluxe room to enjoy city views, or the superior deluxe with garden and castle views. If you upgrade to a suite you can enjoy a magnificent fire place.

Families are especially welcome here, with a range of kids’ facilities, such as babysitting, special meals, books, films and games. The hotel also caters for little ones with baby meals, kids’ linens and child-sized robes and slippers. While the children are busy, adults can enjoy the award-winning spa, with Rocco Forte Rituals and ESPA treatments, in addition to the 15-metre lap pool, sauna, steam room and gym.

For a true British experience, try an afternoon tea at Palm Court or indulge in a local tipple at the Scotch Bar, which serves up to 400 whiskeys. You can also dine in style at the Michelin star restaurant or try French delicacies in the brasserie.
