Excellent location – rated 9.8/10! (score from 318 reviews)
Rated by guests after their stay at The Balmoral Hotel.
The Balmoral first opened its doors in 1902 as the North British Station Hotel. Taking its place on the Edinburgh skyline in the heart of the city, the hotel linked the Scottish architecture of the Old Town with the classical architecture of the New Town. The Balmoral – meaning ‘majestic dwelling’ in Gaelic, was purchased by Sir Rocco Forte in 1997 as the first in his new collection of luxury five star hotels.
