Checking into the Balmoral is stepping back into time with all the modern amenities one could wish for. An original railroad hotel, it's location on top of the train station is ideal for rail passengers. The staff starting with the doormen were all extremely pleasant and helpful. Our corner room was spacious with a lovely quirkiness in angles and windows only found in a 100plus year old structure. Do go for a room rate that includes breakfast...it is well worth it. The concierge staff was extremely helpful especially when it came to tracking down my husband's lost wallet! We will happily return to this beautiful hotel due to its staff and lovely amenities and ideal location in historic Edinburgh.

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.
