The Balmoral is one of the Rocco Forte Hotels, which offer exquisite service in exceptional locations. When you book a Rocco Forte hotel, you know you will be right in the heart of the destination, with local landmarks seen from every window. 

The Balmoral combines Scottish heritage and French style in 167 rooms and 20 suites. The overall design was envisioned by Olga Polizzi and embodies the Scottish landscape – colours of cornflower-blues and greys for the woodland paintings, heather-coloured hills on the sofas and lochs upon the walls. Soft furnishings are throughout the hotel, making your stay as comfortable as possible. Visit the famous Scotch bar, where they are over 500 varieties of Scottish whisky to try, one of the largest collections in Edinburgh, or instead settle down in a quiet corner like The Gallery and enjoy a tranquil afternoon tea, away from the bustling city centre. 

The Balmoral are happy to arrange various excursions during your stay, from masterclasses to golf experiences, and even the little ones are catered for, with kids activities for those aged 0 to 16 years.  

There’s no better place than the Balmoral to discover the beating Scottish heart of Edinburgh.
