I love The Balmoral and always try to stay there when visiting Edinburgh. It is quite quirky but feels very homely - all the rooms seem to be different but are very comfortable and have classy fixtures and fittings. What you get is complete peace and tranquility and quietly attentive service from the exceptional staff. The beds have exquisite linen. The bathrooms have been thoughtfully designed. The place is spotless - the only fault is Edinburgh itself which seems to get grimier each time I go. Still, once outside and turning my back on the rather shoddy array of shops that now populate most of Princes Street (exceptions include Jenners, and of course, Harvey Nichols on St Andrew's Square) the view of the Scott Monument and the Castle are breathtaking.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You will find The Balmoral at Edinburgh's most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street, where the Old Town stops and the New Town begins. Our hotel's majestic clock defines the city's skyline and since the day we opened in 1902 it has run three minutes fast to ensure you will never miss your train. The Balmoral is a grand railway hotel where our porters can still be organised to whisk guests from the station hall to the reception desk, and our kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel. Experience Number One our Michelin-starred restaurant, indulge in afternoon tea at Palm Court or drinks in the signature whisky bar, Scotch. A comprehensive range of treatments will help you unwind in the award-wining Balmoral Spa. The 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms have magnificent views of the city or the hotel's internal courtyard. The hotel's ten banqueting suites all enjoy natural daylight and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street or the historic Old Town and can accommodate a wide range of events. ... more less
