Reviews - The Balmoral - A Rocco Forte Hotel

5Visit Scotland Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
1 Princes Street , Edinburgh, EH2 2EQ
The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel 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.

Fantastic Edinburgh market weekend
Stayed here as very close to railway station and the Edinburgh Christmas Market. Staff were very pleasant & welcoming, room large and very clean. Not sure I was entirely comfortable with Sean Connery in my bathroom!! Great central location with a bit of luxury.

magical experience
This is my third visit to the Balmoral, in my experience there is no hotel can match them.
It is without a doubt sheer luxury and attention to detail right through the hotel...friendly staff and a willingness to cater for all types of traveller.
I suggest any person visiting edinburgh to take the time to experience everything the Balmoral has to offer.
