The Balmoral Hotel
16 expert reviews
“Almost directly above Waverley railway station, The Balmoral's soaring clock tower is a city landmark, famously set a few minutes fast for the benefit of those on the way to the train.”
"Classically styled bedrooms with rich fabrics and a subtle contemporary edge... Highly detailed service."
"It could not be more central or more subtly beautiful... on the other hand, its rates could hardly be higher."
"Edinburgh's classic five-star hotel located at the east end of Princes Street in a large and imposing building. Excellent service, sublime restaurants and a luxurious atmosphere."
"Impressive historic hotel that combines Edwardian finery with up-to-date luxury in the heart of Edinburgh." Full review
Choose from the chic Art Deco brasserie Hadrian’s — designed by Olga Polizzi — or the refined Michelin-starred Number One. Book ahead for a corner banquette and a tasting menu experience amid reimagined Edwardian sophistication.
